You'll be glad you found it!

Lan's is tucked away in the corner of a strip mall, but once inside the restaurant you'll find a cozy, inviting atmosphere. I have only eaten here a few times for lunch, but each time the food has been fresh and tasty. Today I had mahi-mahi wrapped in a banana leaf and served with baby bok choy... read more

This is a hard-to-find, unassuming little place with an attractive, cozy atmosphere ~ & some of the best Vietnamese food we've found anywhere. Everything seemed absolutely fresh, flavors were complex, interesting & wonderfully flavorful. We ate here twice in as many days, & definitely will be back next time we're thru. If I had to pick something to complain about... More

Hungry for a big bowl of Pho? Come here! The server was attentive and friendly. The bowl of soup, awesome! A little hidden gem in a shopping center.

Lan's was recommended to me by a chef. We ended up going for dinner one night, and lunch the next day before we left Santa Fe. The #5 entree (chicken wontons) still calls to me. If you like Vietnamese, don't miss this place. If you've never tried it and are skeptical, this is your place to get your feet wet.... More

This is superb Vietnamese food. We both had pho and the medley of spices and ingredients were unusual and delicious. An enjoyable meal and the best pho ever!

Lan has been around for a long time and really puts out some wonderful authentic Vietnamese food. If you don't think their food is authentic - you have never had real Vietnamese food. Lan's is the real thing. One of my favorites is the Vietnamese crepe. This is an item that you don't often see on a Vietnamese menu, which... More

If you are not a food person this is not the place for you. Let's face it, the wait staff at Lan's is less than to be desired but at least they are friendly. My first couple trips there were also quite slow on getting our entrees but that has gotten much better over the last year. Now the important... More

Lan is always in the back cooking. She's very thoughtful in her cooking and uses fresh, local and organic ingredients. Multi-dimensional and layered flavors come through. We always try something new and end up loving it. Atmosphere (strip mall, cold decor) is lacking and service is just so-so, but you'll forget all that when you eat her food. Just go!

We met friends here for a small get together and were looking forward to some delicious Vietnamese food. We came early and were one of only about three tables occupied but it filled up before too long. It took us a while to order from all the chatting we were doing, and the drinks came with no issues. But, we... More

Tasty all the way. While this city has many (nearly 200?) eateries, Lan's is one where we go for a celebration. She herself has the great taste. Feel lucky for the experience.
