Fresh and Flavorful

I had lunch here recently while at an event at the nearby Moscone Center. There was a decent line, which made me think it must be okay. It took me a minute or two to fully understand the Chipotle-esque ordering system, I ended up going with the spring rolls (even though I normally prefer pho... read more

THE GOOD: Good sandwiches good salads Good service Clean and uncluttered environment THE NOT SO GOOD: Not much We came here for lunch on my quest to find the best Banh Mi sandwich, it is very tasty and well worth the visit if you are in the area. Not the best we have had but it was so very tasty... More

I, too, visited Freshroll based on other reviews raving about this place. I love Vietnamese food, and almost always get a bowl of vermicelli with grilled pork. So I went for lunch this weekend after the car show, around 12:30pm, looking forward to trying out a new place. For me, it did not really live up to the hype. There... More

We had lunch whilst attending a congress at the convention centre. We had burgers and they were lovely. The price was not too dear for lunch. I would recommend having the crispy Brussels sprout, very tasty. They also serve roasted chicken and very good as well.

This was a great stop for a quick lunch between business events. Their assembly line system is efficient and the staff was smiling and friendly. Food was really good and healthy. Lots of flavor! Prices are good.

Tried it and I love it. The rolls are very nice, full of fresh vegetables. I did add the "crispy goodness" and it is something that I strongly recommend. It added a needed crunch to the dish.

These guys have their stuff together - quick and assembly lined process is super efficient when you just need to eat and go, and the food was filling without making you feel sluggish. Very friendly staff!

Honestly I expected more based on the reviews here at TA but having lived in SEA for some time I need to say that the rolls are just average. They lack the spices and fresh ingredients you will find in Vietnam or Thailand. Even in the US I had better rolls at Vietnamese restaurants. Atmosphere is pretty much non-existent. Also... More

This is a fantastic, fresh, healthy, fast food. The concept is like Chipotle, but with Vietnamese food. So instead of choosing fillings for a tortilla, you choose fillings for a spring roll. I loved the garlic shrimp and the lemongrass pork. This concept should go national!

We had late lunch at Freshroll as it was very near our hotel. Living in Asia for the past 9 years, I've had my share of fresh springrolls, but I have to admit these were pretty awesome. We tried almost everything on their menu: the fresh rolls (my favorite is the one with the lemongrass pork), the sandwich and the... More
