Surprisingly Great!

This place has been open just a couple blocks from my house for a couple years now. Tonight was the first night we tried it.

I liked their diverse menu and especially their clay pot entree. Good place for both meat lovers and Vegans/Vegetarians alike.

Always a busy restaurant means it is liked by many, including us. Generous portions. Great Vietnamese coffee!

This is a really good place. The food is really good and the service is very friendly. It's packed at lunch time. They have anything you could want from soups to noodles.

I read a review somewhere that liked the food but found a fly in it. Well I found a hair in my food. The dish was tasty but there wasn't much shrimp or chicken & pork in it. Nice interior. I ordered two meals to go, my co-worker who wasn't familiar with Vietnamese cooking kind of liked it but also... More

We had the lemongrass chicken spring rolls, and chicken, veggie and rice noodle dish and Pho. Everything was fresh and delicious! The peanut sauce for the spring rolls was very good.... More

Had dinner here on our one night in Albuquerque. Wanted something different than the standard New Mexican cuisine we had been eating. This was a great find just a few blocks from our hotel. Located in a small strip mall, it doesn't look like anything special, but the menu is extensive and creative, and the food was really excellent. A... More
