Delicious and often overlooked

NU students tend to overlook this small shop, but it should definitely become part of your restaurant location. Sandwiches are very generous and well-priced- I recommend a #4 with pork or chicken. Shop owners are super friendly and appreciate the business as well.

The staff was very nice and gave great recommendations. I do not care for tuna but the owner said it didn't taste like regular tuna. He was right! It was hands down the best tuna sandwich I have ever eaten. It's about ten dollars a person if you get a drink which is reasonable considering the location.

I went here with my father and we had the Paneer fig with chicken, and Indonesian bbq with steak. Both had interesting flavors that contrasted well within each sandwich. There was the snap of the carrots and vegetables with the tenderness of the steak or chicken and the sauces. Some Sriracha really wakes up the flavors too. The owners are... More

I ordered a curry chicken wrap (burmese). It's just chicken in a wrap with shredded carrot and some cilantro. I'm not sure what's burmese about it. (I'm from southeast asian.) I'm not saying it tasted bad. I'm just saying it's a chicken wrap with shredded carrot. Definitely not worth the price. Subway has better value!

This is a cute restaurant, with lovely owners/workers. The sandwich ideas are exciting sounding, but not as flavorful as I had hoped. The paneer/fig tasted more like goat cheese than paneer, and the bread was ok, but not at the bakery level expected of a $8 sandwich.

Sandwich shop. Homemade bread. Vegetarian and carnivore options. Homemade chips. I had Wasabi steak and my daughter had Ginger beef, both exceptional. Very good price, 2 sandwiches, 1 bag of chips and 1 homemade (&excellent) slaw, 2 drinks and tip for $25. Nice family run business.

Everything is made from scratch, including the potato chips. I particularly like the spicy tuna sandwich, although there are plenty of others to choose from.

Outstanding and fresh pan-Asian sandwiches served up with a friendly smile. Unusual bottled drinks complete the meal. Highly recommended!

Have eaten here several times. Sandwiches are solid, using high-quality ingredients. Some organics and locally sourced produce. Salad boxes are good too, but I really like the Indonesian Ginger BBQ or the sesame Chili Tuna with the Burmese chips (homemade spicy potato chips). Skip the drink and you're out of there for around $8. Way better quality than the usual... More
