This place is inexpensive and you know the food is good because people line up outside to get a seat. I do not believe they take reservations. I usually pick my food up because I do not have the patience to sand in line for 20 minutes to get a seat. They have great sandwiches and salads (Vietnamese). I also... More

My friend is a regular and took me. I had the pulled pork bun, wouldn't recommend. On a better note, also have the pork/shrimp/spring roll with vermicelli noodles.... Amazing!!!!!! Moderately priced for what you get. Would recommend!!!

Located in a busy section of MacDougal Street in Greenwich Village, this small cheap eats Vietnamese Place really hits the mark. The Lemongrass Chicken Pho was SO tasty. Cheap at only $7, and it's a big sandwich! I got take-out, but noticed families, college students, locals, and tourists, all convening on this place. I'll be back for delicious vietnamese at...

I took a vegeterian Pho, while my husband the traditional one with beef, and both of us were surprised with a great... More

Had take out Pho from this restaurant which was really delicious. Wonderful winter supper! We were going to see a show at Terra Blues where they only serve drinks, but you can bring your own take- out.

Great pho, great bahn mi! Cash only, and hard to get a seat at times but the food and service is great. They have a cucumber and a lemonade drink, but I ask that they mix the two and its a refreshing and fantastic drink. Also, the sauce they serve w the fries is amazing!

My wife and I stumbled upon this restaurant over the summer, and just wanted a quick bite to eat. It was delicious and well-priced. It stacks up well against our favorite place in Ithaca, NY and another good place on the Upper East Side. The chicken Banh Mi sandwich is wonderful: I can eat this every day! So light and... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
