May is a good Vietnamese restaurant in an odd location that has a huge lumber jack statue on its roof. I've eaten there twice and have found the food to be very good. It is a sure fire favorite for many locals and has been...More

Being new to the area my boss brought me here for a working lunch. After being seated and making meal selections, it did take some time for us to place our order and get served. She had the pho and I went with the basil...More

This restaurant, in Albuquerque's International district, is a refreshing change from chain oriental buffets. The food is fresh and tasty and the staff is quite helpful and friendly. There is a huge menu, the portions are large and there are some lovely sauces and flavors.
