Viet Rice restaurant is located conveniently along Rio Rancho boulevard. There is ample parking (co-located with Smith's grocery store) and they serve some of the best Vietnamese food on the west side. Their soups are flavorful and come with a plate of condiments (fresh basil, cilantro, jalapeno slices and mung bean sprouts). The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Their... More

The best Vietnamese food in Rio Rancho for sure, and probley the best in New Mexico. Quality and great taste are the norm here, and the staff is friendly and attentive. We have dined here many, many times, and have had a wide variety of the items offered, and every meal has met or exceeded our expectations. A great eating... More

The food is always good here. Love their Pho and broken rice dishes. Service is always fast. The server lady is very friendly! Would recommend this restaurant to others.

You can usually get right into Viet Rice. DESPITE it being located in a strip mall and next to McDonald's it is consistently good. The pho is delicious and always good for what ails you. Don't expect fawning service but the decor is above average with very nice modern Vietnamese genre art on the walls, which is nice. Also, we... More

I called in a takeout meal last week. It's the third time I've eaten here and I was not disappointed. I look forward to dining in again this restaurant soon!

I recently moved to New Mexico from Lowell, MA, where there is a Pho restaurant on almost every corner. So I was really craving a good bowl of my favorite soup. It was a huge surprise to find Viet Rice tucked into a strip mall that has a large supermarket as well as the usual types of stores you find... More

The owners of Viet Rice are really lovely people. Eating at their establishment is like being in your grandmother's dining room. The service and food is wonderful. I particularly enjoy their nourishing Pho soup with beef meatballs, tofu, lots of rice noodles and fresh vegetables. There is always a large plate of bean sprouts and cilantro to add into your...

I have only been here once but the food was really good. The price was not that bad either. It was not overly crowded and the service was really good.
