The restaurant is a world apart. The menu is authentic and is traditional Vietnamese. The staff is wonderful and the owner herself will wait on you. Ask her about her journey to New Mexico it's a great addition to your dish. With the third visit under my belt the staff already knew my complete order and my favorite dish. If... More

I love vietnamese food and there are several good ones here in Albuquerque. Saigon is by far the best! I could eat just off their appetizer menu! The spring rolls are superb with the deliciously hot sweet peanut sauce. The fried won tons are superb and the egg rolls are to die for! I could eat them every day! Small... More

First time eating here.........interior could use updating and sprucing up. Men's bathroom was cruddy looking and did not instill a feeling that they take cleanliness as seriously as I do, especially since if this is where male employees wash their hands after using the restroom-well, it was out of soap! The other thing that made an immediate negative impression was... More

On the recommendation of my wife's nail salon ladies, we stopped by for lunch on a visit to Albuquerque.i had the rare beef pho, my wife the pawn pork squid combination soup. We loved the extras brought to the table, basil, cilantro, sprouts, lime and hot pepper! There was enough soup to take home for another meal. Very reasonable prices... More

Another vietnamese restaurant in the city. Ambience is not bad unlike my other top 2 vietnamese restaurants in ABQ. Rare beef pho is okay, nothing special. I had better ones in town. Service is fast. I will come back and try their "Bun".

A simple place hidden away in a strip mall. My crispy pork chops with rice and salad (delicious spicy dressing) was a very large serving and delicious. My dining companion's chicken curry was huge --she claimed there was a whole chicken in the curry. I will be going back to try more of the interesting dishes. Only one criticism --no... More

It's hard to find this place, tucked in a shopping center off San Mateo. But the food is worth it. I had nicely spiced chicken with fresh steamed vegetables and shrimp fried rice. The service was friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable. No atmosphere, just basic furnishings.

I've been here twice, and the first time the waitperson seemed to be a little rushed and it was only 8oclock. The food was still very tasty so I returned a second time. We had a different waiter who was a 180 from the other one. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. I just love that in... More

Went here for Valentine's Day dinner. Arrived around 8:30 and restaurant closed at 9pm. That being said, I have worked for many years in the restaurant industry and when an establishment says it closes at a particular time it does not mean that the employees are all cleaned up and walking out the door at that hour. I was less... More

Saigon Restaurant has two locations, Albuquerque, NM and Rio Rancho, NM. This is a great restaurant, we enjoy the food more than Chinese. The owners are warm and interested in their guests. The food is flavorful and fresh. Everyone needs to go here to dine.
