“Always great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Great food at reasonable prices. Appetizers are fantastic, try the grape leaves. Great selection of entrees with outstanding Pho. The lemongrass chicken is the best in the city. It's a small dining room, so come early. Also a great lunch place when you want something special.

“One of the best Viet places in ABQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

After many years coming to ABQ this was our first time going to this top notch place with very reasonable prices. We split good spring rolls then each had a very large bowl of rice noodle soup with seafood for only $7.50. Lovely place, good service and plenty of easy free parking.

“A Very Poor Evening”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We dined here on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Albuquerque, and were very disappointed. The setting is pleasant, with tablecloths on the tables. But the atmosphere is not conducive to pleasant dining - noisy and crowded, athough I am not sure why, and the service is just so-so. My fried rice with shrimp was completely tasteless, and the spring rolls were not any better. Our friend had jasmine rice with barbecued beef, which appeare to have more oomph. There is no beer or wine available, which we knew, but which detracts from the dining experience for some. There are too many great restaurants in Albquerque to take a chance on this one again.

“New find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

I had not had Vietnamese since before I moved out here, and was craving it. I decided to give this place a try and really liked it. I have been several times recently, and have tried different dishes. Everything I have had so far has been excellent. My only complaint, the place is a bit overly crowded, the tables are very close together, and having tried to go at lunch one day, I can see why, they are trying to get as many people in as possible. But the tables are so close together they are a bit hard to navigate around, and it gets VERY noisy. Luckily the food lives up the hype and awards they have received.

Price is fair & the customer service is great. Love swinging by for a quick lunch for some delicious Pho.
