It's always pack! Go early and make sure you try their pegaga @pennywort and daisy drink. So cooling. You would love the thick crab soup base to the last bit. Its also very cheap at two bowls for approx 86000 dong. Worth the trip!

ABOVE AVG banh canh, only your locals usually eat at this place, about 43k for a bowl and it’s bread you use to dip it in. just sit down and show 1 finger for 1 bowl! Very small portions! Had to get 2 bowls

As a local, I consider Banh Canh here is the best. The place is a bit packed, and sometimes you need to wait to get a seat so, be prepared
