Good Vietnamese Pho

Where you want to be after a cold day fishing. Portions were larger last year but the quality remains high. Friendly wait staff, clientele most local as far as I could tell which is a good sign in a tourist town.

We were so happy to find in a corner of a strip mall. The tastiest, freshest, unique VietNamese cuisine prepared by Lan herself who greeted us with warmth and delight that we appreciated her food. Don't miss it when you visit Santa Fe!

This is the best Vietnamese food we have ever had in the US. It is remarkably delicate in layering spices. Lan, the owner/chef buys her spices in Vietnam where she is from and prepares foods that will take your tastebuds on a journey! The vegetarian selections are vegan and remarkable. The soups are unparalleled so share a soup as a... More

Not sure why we have not heard of this place before but in a quest for new places to eat, found it and had a truly wonderful meal in a warm and friendly spot way back in a dark Mall off of Cerrilos Road - had to drive by a couple of times before we spotted it. Green papaya salad... More

We lived in Albuquerque and heard about Lan's in Santa Fe, so we drove an hour north and enjoyed a spectacular meal of authentic Viet Namese food. We were surprised to find the restaurant in a shopping mall outside of the plaza area, but don't be put off by the location. We had traveled through Viet Nam, eating our way... More

I love Vietnamese food and will try to find it when I travel. So it was a surprise to find it in Santa Fe. Lan is the owner, a lovely woman who tries to create “food the way my grandmother cooked and taught me.” It’s really authentic and as such know it is not what we think of as traditional,... More

My girlfriend loves this place; I go because of her. The food is tasty, but the portions are kinda small and some dishes seem over priced. It must be a terrible place to work because the turnover rate for serves here is unbelievable. I've been here at least a couple dozen times and there literally is a new server every... More

I am a former server at this place and you should definitely read this review before going to this place. Lan (the asian woman) takes ALL TIPS from servers whenever she wants. This happens especially with new servers who get all tips taken away from them during their "training phase" which lasts as long as Lan wants which is usually... More

We have been back twice now for the $29.00 banquet - it is beyond delicious and so much food you need take home containers. The staff are wonderful and helpful and the food is served in an incredibly timely manner.
