My husband and I wanted to try a new restaurant. I came across Basil Leaf. We were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was nice, and very clean. We had great service and enjoyed every bite of our meal. We will return.

We dine here recently and again our experience was great. This very busy restaurant has a great menu and nice decor, portions are large, and the staff is attentive. Try their "sticky rice with mango"...when in season, it is very good.

This is our favorite restaurant in Albuquerque. The food is always delicious. The last time we ate there I had a rice stick with vegetables and shrimp. It was so big that I had to take it home. My husband had a shrimp crepe and chicken fried rice that he said was among the best he had ever had. Their... More

Food is very authentic, fresh and always consistent. Pad Thai is the best in town. They also have a habenero chili paste you can get on the side if you like VERY hot. Pho is very good (large is enough for 3-4 people).

Great dishes and great prices. Family-run Vietnamese restaurant. It can get pretty busy and they can loose your ticket and your food be late, but they will comp it. Best sticky rice with mango and coconut sauce, try it...you will like it.

I'm not a Vietnamese food connoisseur, so other reviewers may have a more expert perspective. But, for me, the food is so-so. Rice or noodles dishes come with choices of protein--often pork and shrimp. The sauces are sweeter than I like. The service, however, was below average during my recent visit. One of four orders was not correct, empty plates... More

I am new to Albuquerque, I decided to give this place a try during lunch today. Thinking that this is the Southwest and not a big Asian population I would give this place a try. The décor was good, you can tell they paid some good money to slap some paint on the walls and the green décor omg you... More

My wife and I always go to this place for casual dinners and for reunions with friends, i have even taken people for business meetings. The food taste is always good and the prices very accessible. My favorites are the pho (meatballs), the clear spring rolls, the clay pots (pork), and the mango sticky rice. The atmosphere is nice ans... More
