I loved this place, the food is so fresh and authentic, lots of coriander and bahn mi. It was well worth treating myself after so much walking. The staff were also attentive and very welcoming. I will be returning here with my friends.

After a long day of walking the city, we rewarded ourselves with a meal at Saigon Shack. It was still early so there was no waiting. During dinner, there is a queue of hungry patrons. Originally we were going to sit at the bar, but...More

Stopped in here while on a recent trip to New York. The food was lovely and fresh. I wouldn’t bother with the Peking duck banh mi - that was disappointing and very bland, mainly consisted of cucumber. However, the classic beef pho and the grilled...More

Very close to NYU, therefore often crowded with students. Price may seem a little high, but big portion makes up for it. I always order the Phó, particularly Saigon Shack Phó. Rice dishes are also really good. The meat Bahn-mi is delicious. Wait times can...More

The Pho was delicious...really hearty. It is a cash only place and it is very tiny so you do have to share tables. The veggie spring rolls were delicious. Only drawback is that they do push you out. The minute your check comes and you...More

Nice lunch option-the $5 bahn mi sandwich was one of the best deals in the city. Didn't eat the pho but saw plenty being delivered to tables around us and it looked great-huge portions for the price. Quick friendly service!

Went here with a group of 9 people on a Thursday night expecting some issues with getting a table, but the wait was short and the staff were accommodating. Prices are cheap and the food is fantastic - beef pho (for $9) was excellent. Perfect...More

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.
