This place is a finely tuned machine. The decor is right on for a nice, mini strip mall place-they have great Viet accents adorning the walls (I have been up and down Vietnam twice). They get busy, busy by 11:30 at lunch and by 6 for dinner on the weekends. The staff turn over tables in about a minute. The... More

Saw the advertisement for this place on tv. Deceptive. It looks bigger on tv. Saturday late morning found the place packed. Had a pretty good wait to be seated. Menu is extensive. But could have been easier to read if they would combine items instead of listing each one separately. Just for an example, say there was "fried rice" on... More

Every time I eat here it never disappoints me or my family!! My favorite is the grilled chicken vermicelli noodle bowl! The pho is excellent as well. Get grilled chicken on the side and it's even better to add. The price is amazing for all the food you get. Oh and the spring rolls are amazing too!

Small but nice atmosphere with an extensive menu. The dish that I ordered was so good that is what I have ordered on several other visits. Some Vietnamese restaurants serve rather spicy food. Here you can get numerous non spicy and spicy dishes. The food was really good and the staff was friendly.

Can't believe how inexpensive the food is here. The food was prompt and fresh and service was great as well. I would definitely come back to this gem.

The food and service are great here. The prices are very reasonable. It is best to go off the main lunch and dinner times because you will wait for a table.

I came here with my friend. The food served was the combination beef pho (No. 15 on the menu) and the fried rolls (No. 3). It tasted good. However, the two waiters (one male and one female) kept on coming and trying to take the unfinished food away from us without asking. We could only ask them not to do... More

My family loves this restaurant. Whenever we miss vietnamese food, we go here for it's authentic taste. Because of that, my daughter treated her friends for her birthday in this restaurant and they all love it. Even with the small space, it still draws a lot of people to dine in. Try their country style steak, it's good.

Many Vietnamese choices in Albuquerque. Tipped off to this place by a friend married to a Vietnamese person. Authentic and delicious, good prices, good service, very busy at lunch. People will stand and wait for a table. That's a tell.

Thank SVCris
