  • Without a doubt, best banh mi in NYC. Bahn mi that leaves a brain imprint akin to addiction.
  • Get the pork bahn mi with a fried egg in it! They go perfect together like a turtleneck and chain!
  • Scary interior. Banh mi was tasty but not really authentic
  • The soy protein sandwich is the best vegetarian banh mi around. You won't regret it.
  • Yelp was right: beef pho is not good
  • If you're going with the veggie pho, get the soy protein.
  • Banh mi is cheap and tasty.
  • Tasty sandwiches - no public bathrooms!
  • The fish banh mi is a solid choice. Bring thunder and order it xtra spicy.
  • This banh mi is amazing and I'm Vietnamese I would know
  • Not a good spot if you're in a rush
  • Veggie pho with soy is amazing and extremely filling.
  • Pork pate...best banh mi I've ever tasted. Been thinking about it for a month!
  • Vermicelli bowl is alright. Doesn't taste as refreshing as I'm used to. Bahn mi not bad
  • My friend Dan showed me around this spot. This joint is a super underrated spot serving authentic Vietnamese food. It's worth going out of the way for.
  • Beef pho is legit, much better than Sao Mai nearby
  • amazing and affordable pho chicken and spring rolls
  • Beef Pho fo sho. The pot stickers are actually surprisingly good too.
  • pho and bahn mi
  • Very underrated Vietnamese food. Awesome bahn mi.
