“Best Vietnamese Food in ABQ..no question!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

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 and some are bad. But for consistent good food and service nothing beats Saigon Far East. Great assortment of dishes to try, along with favorites like Vietnamese hot wings and lemon grass chicken. Forget the less-than-desirable neighborhood and the lack of interior design. This place rocks! Take a chance, be brave and then be rewarded!

“Best pho I have had in years”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

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 good). The thin pork slice is so tender and all the herbs in the soup are fresh. I'd definitely recommend everyone to give a try when in ABQ for the sake of great Vietnamese food.

“Great place in a sketchy neighborhood”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

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 rich and flavorful. The pork-based rice noodle is especially surprisingly good. If you are in the neighborhood, definitely give it a try!

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

“So Bun Good”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

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.
