I love this place! I used to have neighbors from Vietnam and they made the greatest Spring Rolls!!! This place has ones that are just as marvelous! Great fried rice.....A side is plenty for two. Love the Pho. Large portions.

I love this place! They have the best Pho Ga in Albuquerque. It is a chicken and ginger soup that is so delicious. I always get it when I feel a cold coming on. It clears me right up! My other favorite dish is the salmon fried rice. It is scrumptious. The staff is always so friendly. We go there... More

Great food at a great price! Amazing environment! Family was welcomed and great service. Location is hard to get into parking lot but worth the small journey.

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.

May's had the best Vietnamese food in Albuquerque - and plenty of vegetarian selections if that is your desire. The restaurant if close to the State Fair grounds and therefore I would highly recommend it for lunch or dinner if you find yourself at the "Expo" for an event of the flea market. Prices are moderate - the staff friendly... More

Very friendly and prompt staff. Requested stir fried eggplant and drip Vietnamese coffee. The coffee was perfect and delicious. The eggplant not so much. The eggplant texture was more like steamed vs stir fried. This was disappointing. Asked for it to be "spicy hot". It came out mild. A side of chili sauce came out later to help, but destroyed...

Only been twice since we discovered another place for Pho. May Café was nice, small and staff was good. Pho was fairly good but the first day we went, the ingredients did not seem that fresh. The second time, it was much better. Spring rolls with rice paper were good but I have to say, my wife makes better ones.... More

We found this restaurant in the AAA book. We were craving something different after 7 days of eating NM chile/Mexican type meals. Being from the Twin Cities with wonderful Vietnamese restaurants, I was unsure what we would find here. We were delighted with the service, clean restrooms, and fabulous tasted dishes. HIGHLY recommend May Cafe. You will enjoy it!

this is a standard, I eat here frequently. Love the food. Consistently good. Service is always prompt. Staff always friendly and attentive. Love the noodle soups, good for what ails you on a cold and dreary day. Yum 8-9 on a scale of 10.
