Good Value, Good Food

We ordered #81 lotus root with pork and shrimp salad, #11 beef phó, #45 shrimp on sugar cane, #40 tofu with lemongrass on noodles, and #130 coconut shake with tapioca. All dishes were generous portions, all ingredients fresh. Prices were reasonable and service was attentive. Recommend it.

Who every gave this place five stars was smoking crack.This place would be a good canidate for that show kitchen nightmares. First off the decor is horrible with holes in wall, not to mention way out dated. I was not aware that Vietnamese had there own version of cafeteria food and this was it. To top it off my wife...

Extensive menu and great prices. Orientals go there, so it must be good! Now there are two, one in the east-side and one in the west-side.

The restaurant is a world apart. The menu is authentic and is traditional Vietnamese. The staff is wonderful and the owner herself will wait on you. Ask her about her journey to New Mexico it's a great addition to your dish. With the third visit under my belt the staff already knew my complete order and my favorite dish. If... More

I love vietnamese food and there are several good ones here in Albuquerque. Saigon is by far the best! I could eat just off their appetizer menu! The spring rolls are superb with the deliciously hot sweet peanut sauce. The fried won tons are superb and the egg rolls are to die for! I could eat them every day! Small... More

First time eating here.........interior could use updating and sprucing up. Men's bathroom was cruddy looking and did not instill a feeling that they take cleanliness as seriously as I do, especially since if this is where male employees wash their hands after using the restroom-well, it was out of soap! The other thing that made an immediate negative impression was... More

We loved the extras brought to the table, basil, cilantro, sprouts, lime and hot pepper! There was enough soup to take home for another meal. Very reasonable prices... More

Another vietnamese restaurant in the city. Ambience is not bad unlike my other top 2 vietnamese restaurants in ABQ. Rare beef pho is okay, nothing special. I had better ones in town. Service is fast. I will come back and try their "Bun".

A simple place hidden away in a strip mall. My crispy pork chops with rice and salad (delicious spicy dressing) was a very large serving and delicious. My dining companion's chicken curry was huge --she claimed there was a whole chicken in the curry. I will be going back to try more of the interesting dishes. Only one criticism --no... More
