The food at My Banh Mi was excellent, made with fresh ingredients and all super tasty. The Pork Banh Mi with creamy basil sauce was delicious - I can see why they are known for their banh mi's. I usually don't eat much greens but the Crab Claw Salad was one of the best I've ever had - so much so that I want to get the recipe and try to replicate it when I return home! Being a huge fan of beef stew, the Bo Kho was tender and juicy and is up there as a top fav. The Bun Thit Nuong (chicken with white rice noodles) was yummy. And the Sapporo beer on tap was cold and hit the spot! I'll be sure to come back to try more dishes.

Getting through adjusting to the heat, humidity and frenetic traffic on our first day in HCMC we found this absolute gem just opposite Notre Dame cathedral. The baguettes (Banh Mi) were insanely crunchy yet soft inside and full of Viet taste!! Beer cold & wifi strong. Needed that break!

The baguette has a thin crust outside and soft inside, make it very very easy to eat! The different type of sauces are amazing too!

We ate here a couple of times it was so good! We found this place thru Trip Advisor and it lives up to its rating. The location is just great and it's easy to find, but the sandwiches were the best, great bread, meats and yummy dressings. Oh how I wish I could have one right now!

Dear Sally W,
Thank you for your review and repeated visits. Your comment of “We ate here a couple of times it was so good!” is truly the greatest compliment we could receive.
We take great pride in insuring that we consistently serve the “Best of the Best” Vietnamese home cooking. For us, this starts with our demanding hygiene practices and the great care we take in the sourcing, storage and preparation of the highest quality ingredients available. In many instances such as our beef dishes (our steaks and Banh Mis), we import only the highest quality strip loins and rib eye cuts from Australia and New Zealand.
As we believe there is no substitute for quality, in order for us to serve the best, we must start with the best. As you have returned several times to dine with us, we appreciate that your palate has confirmed the taste and quality of the meals we serve.
Thank you again for your repeat dining with us and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you once again in future.
