I am new to Albuquerque, I decided to give this place a try during lunch today. Thinking that this is the Southwest and not a big Asian population I would give this place a try. The décor was good, you can tell they paid some good money to slap some paint on the walls and the green décor omg you... More

My wife and I always go to this place for casual dinners and for reunions with friends, i have even taken people for business meetings. The food taste is always good and the prices very accessible. My favorites are the pho (meatballs), the clear spring rolls, the clay pots (pork), and the mango sticky rice. The atmosphere is nice ans... More

Was on the hunt for good pho and found it at Basil Leaf. Several options available in small, regular, large. Wait staff confirmed that I was ok with onions in the soup. Happy to see fresh hot sauce (not a fan of the 'produced' sriracha). Good, fresh add-ins (basil, bean sprouts, jalapeño, lime). Soup was wonderful! Dining partner had a... More

My cousin turned me onto this place and we come here probably once a month. I like the way they cook their tofu. I am not a fan of the peanut sauce with the spring rolls, though, I'd rather have the fish sauce.

From the outside, the restaurant doesn't look like much. But once inside you see that it has a very comfortable, casual atmosphere. It's a great place to meet friends for lunch or dinner. The food is very good for the price, and the portions are great. Definitely worth a try!

You are greeted my with smile, you feel welcomed and feel the warmth always. The PHO is amazing!!! I really love their spring and egg rolls. They have a lot of choices on the menu, the food is always fresh and tasting great. They get really busy on the weekends during the dinner time...but its worth the wait!!

We didn't realize La Salita next door was closed on Sundays so we tried this place instead. Glad La Salita, which we love, was closed that day because Basil Leaf is now added to our list of restaurants we enjoy in Albuquerque. It was very crowded. We actually got the last table at that moment that was big enough for... More

I can understand why this is a popular restaurant because huge servings are dumped on a plate and the cost is low. But not much real Vietnamese cooking here - oh and at lunch time the service is very poor.

The food here is amazing, especially the clay pots. I've been a regular for a couple of years but I've given up on them. Their service is horrible. The last four consecutive times I've dined at Basil Leaf they've made us move tables. Not once have they offered a discount after making us move, two times after we were already... More
