We loved the bahn-mi here. Super fresh. Worth heading to this tiny little shop. The line may look long, but it moves fast. Be ready with your order as soon as you get to the front of the line. They are not the most patient.

Very good sandwich. Close to Eddy st, very bad area! Go and back by taxi it's better or stop with The citybus. Sandwich chicken was a great and big.

If you're in the Tenderloin, this hole-in-the-wall is a good place for a tasty bahn mi sandwich of pork, beef, chicken and a couple other choices. You'll need to take out though, as there is seating for exactly 2 people in the cramped space.

This is the top place for Vietnamese sandwiches! They pack their sandwich with lots of ingredients and everything is so tasty. I normally by extra sandwiches just to have for later. Make sure to come before 5pm because they tend to run out and stop serving well before closing time. My favorites are the chicken bahn mi and the tofu... More

This shop has become my go to place for picking up something to eat on our flight back home. Their roast pork, chicken, meatball, and combination bahn mi sandwiches have generous amounts of tasty meat and vegetables, carrots, daikon, pate-like spread, cilantro, and jalapeno. I often contemplate buying more to take home and eat the next day. Yes, it is... More

Great sandwiches, just a bit to spicy for me. Fresh made and lots of meat inside. Worth the waiting.

i received my sandwich in under a minute, which suggests the ingredients are probably pre-prepared. i enjoyed the sauce they use, which had a nice kick to it. i'm not one to turn down spice, but i'll admit i had to take a few jalapenos out of my sandwich.

We were in town visiting and came here to buy 2 bahn mi for breakfast - roast pork and chicken. The meats are marinated to perfection, and the veggies on top and the great bread really make the sandwich. Since we're from out of town, we came back later in the afternoon to grab two more sandwiches for the plane... More

This was across the street from our room. It is a tiny spot with great sandwiches. Inexpensive, tasty, with a simple menu. This was a great value. Since they open at 7 AM, was our choice for breakfast.

Heard a lot about the vietnamese sandwich sold here. Tried a couple of sandwiches with friends, nothing spectacular. Very dodgy neighbourhood as well.
