Consistently fast, pleasant service. I tried the chicken curry this visit, which was good. Still like the vegetable crepe the best though. All the entrees are generous. The tiramusu is incredible.

I come here at least once a year while in ABQ. I've tried other Vietnamese restaurants here, but this is my favorite. The Bahn Xeo is very good, pho is tasty, appetizers are yum.
