The subs are decent enough, but definitely not authentic Viet (too much sugar, too much MSG, added cheese!!). The price is also too high for Asian food.

Thi Thi has been around for a long time. The quality of its sub is well known. When I am in the neighbourhood, I often check to see if the line up is long or not in order to purchase a sub. You cannot find a more authentic place than Thi Thi, its the only one.

Living close by, I always noticed the long line at this place so figured it must be good. Stood in line for about 15 mins (weekday around lunchtime) and ordered 2 beef sate subs (one for me and one for hubby) WITHOUT hot sauce. I asked if the sub was spicy and the answer I got was "it's a little."... More

Stay away at lunch hour. It is too busy already and I don't want the line to get longer when I go. :-P

If you like Vietnamese subs this is a great choice handy to downtown. It's the proverbial hole in the wall with only a few tables, plan on take-out. A few reviews mention it only taking cash, that was true for a long time but they take cards now. It will line up out the door at lunch time but don't... More

Got a pork rib (no bones) sandwich with everything (peppers, onions, carrots, sauce) on it to go- The server cut it in two and wrapped separately because we were sharing the 10 inch sandwich. Also had mango smoothies- huge, very frosty, and could taste the mango bits. We enjoyed the tasty sandwich on our flight home! Very reasonable prices and... More

Great place for a very tasty Vietnamese subs. There is not any seating (take out only), and they only accept cash (as others have mentioned) however the place does get a long lineup around lunchtime....... but that tells you how good the subs are. Well worth a visit.

Came across this place entirely by chance. Nearly didn't go in as it looks a bit rough and ready from the outside but turned out it was a good decision to get a sandwich here. Fresh ingredients, very tasty and great value. Highly recommended.

If you love Vietnamese subs this is probably the one place you should try when you're downtown. A varied assortment of chicken, beef and pork. The place, while small and doesn't offer seating, is clean with friendly staff. Note: cash only (As of May, 2014).
