Been coming here for lunch and sometimes dinner for years. Always fresh and delicious! Plus, a tremendous value. Fast and friendly service. It's our go-to for Vietnamese. I often call ahead and grab it to go. Lemon grass chicken bun. amazing.

Very low key small operation with very tasty food and very friendly staff. My pho was very good and it comes in 2 sizes which is nice. The fresh spring roll as excellent and the chef has a nice eye for presentation. Not fancy but it was clean and I would go back.

In the search for the best Vietnamese restaurants on the globe, we found ourselves at Saigon Far East! Recommended to us by our hotel clerk, we were a little scared by the area when we first arrived but we try not to let appearances deter us from the goal so we continued in. Inside we were greeted with the classic... More

My standards are different I guess. I know why, but I was craving Asian food this night as I hadn't had it for over a week. Being from LA, I guess is what set my standard differently from local folks. I had the Pho Dac Biet, and found it OK. The decor was pretty old school, that even pho restaurants... More

My family and I have been patronizing this establishment for years now. It came to us as a surprise the other day as we just discussed this over some Happy Rolls. We were kind of taken aback when we realized how long we have been coming here to eat. We have eaten at other Vietnamese restaurants and some are good... More

We found this place on GPS and it is located in the part of town you might not intend to visit. The service is great although the only waitress talks a little too much but offers great service. The food comes well-prepared and promptly. The pork-based pho comes with surprisingly tasty broth (a little bit too much sugar, but still... More

We were here for a flight the next day and didn't want to go too deep in the town. It is close to the airport area and the '99' asian market, so we gave it a try. It was one of the best vietnamese restaurant we have been. A regular pho is around 7 dollars and the soup is super... More

Best Vietnamese food in Albuquerque. The food and service are great. The Pho, egg rolls and spring rolls are the best.

Great lunch with the family. Very friendly staff. Smelled great walking through the door. Had the Bun with pork/ shrimp and imperial rolls and spring rolls. My daughter is a big fan of Vietnamese food. This hidden treat needs to be discovered.
