Great fresh Pho! The restaurant is clean and everything seems to be homemade. The tofu Pho and the shrimp Pho was awesome! We ordered some spring rolls (2 per order) the waiter offered to make each roll different as to our request. Maybe they do that for everyone but I thought it was a nice gesture to offer. Will definitely... More

Some of the freshest, most flavorful Vietnamese food in town. Service is great, great ambiance in a clean, tastefully done decor.

Some of the best Vietnamese food I've ever had. Tried lots of places around town and this is by far the best. Always really busy because people know it too. Great staff, very quick and the food is very tasty and fast. Recommend the #25 traditional Phõ. Will happily return many times.

We come here all the time. One of the few places in Albuquerque where you can get authentic Vietnamese food which has not been americanized too much. I love spicy foods and always get the Bun Bo Hue - Vietnamese style. Comes with pork blood and ham hock. Many places do not offer this, to my dissappointment. That's not the... More

I eat at Vietnamese resturants all the time. One of my favorite foods is any kind of Asian food. Albuquerque has lots of excellent asian, thai, vietnamese, japanese and chinese resturants including some great fusion resturants. This food was bland, over sweetened and did not have some of the usual ingredients. I did not eat pho which every seems to... More

Stopped into Basil Leaf with my son on a whim. It ended up being one of the best Vietnamese places I've been to. The food was delicious and so full of fresh flavor. The prices were reasonable and the service was great!

This Vietnamese restaurant is located right on Eubank in a small shared retail building. It is easy to find and arking is adequate. It is clean, the staff greeted us and seated us quickly and took orders promptly. Food was well prepared and tasty, delivered quickly with little fuss. There is little to now atmosphere but if you are looking... More

We each had a pho, mine with a carmelized onion base, well-seasoned without being overly salty. My partner's was beef broth based, but didn't have the depth he would have liked. I agreed. The noodles and vegetables were cooked just right, and the garnish fresh. An informal restaurant in a strip mall (which Vietnamese Restaurant isn't?), it was very busy.... More
