Came here group of friends in the morning. Very quick to order but waiting too long to get foods when asked why staffs said they needed to make it hot and crunchy then, asked again they answered with not very friendly attitude.
Anyway, Banh Mi was okay taste and little expensive.

Dear heinzhuynh,
Thank you for your review and you are absolutely correct our Banh Mis do take a little longer to prepare than one purchased from a “Fast Food Street Cart.” The reason for the time required is that each and every Banh mi we serve is individually made to order. Our taking a little longer is the only way we know how to guarantee the authenticity in taste and texture in the food we serve.
You will have noticed, that our Banh Mis are filled with quality meats that we slow oven roast to lock in the flavor, moistness and tenderness. Also, as our meal preparation is overseen by our kitchen staff that specializes in authentic Vietnamese home cooking, we do not rush the cooking process. As such, our style of authentic Vietnamese home cooking does take a few minutes longer but our loyal customers demand the authenticity in flavor and tastes that we have become known for. We are not fast food and our patrons seeking authentic great tasting Vietnamese food prefer the individual cook-to-order preference.
Regarding our wait staff, please understand that English is a totally new language to most of them and their language fluency is not yet all encompassing. As such, if in fact your wait person seemed indifferent to your question. it probably was the result of not being able to fully understand what was expressed.
We trust you now understand why we are unable to rush quality and we thank you very much for your review.

We stumbled across this place to dodge the rain and get a Banh Mi and I can't recommend it enough! I had the traditional Bahn Mi and they have a selection of sauces to try. I chose the roasted pepper sauce and it was completely amazing! And only 55k. Located in between the Central Post Office and Notre Dame we got perfect views and were able to watch the busy city go by.

The owners father was looking after the place and was a really interesting guy! Definitely worth a stop for a quick bite to eat and the lemon iced tea is good too!

Dear Ellekate,
Thank you for your review and comments on the taste and quality of our food. You will have noticed that our menu is limited to a few items to insure great quality of taste and consistency. Our specialty is in preparing and serving authentic home cooked Vietnamese kitchen classics and although this cooking time takes us longer, it is the only way we know how to guarantee the authentic tastes and flavors that our loyal customers demand. Additionally, our “No short cut home cooking” is enhanced with the quality of ingredients we use. This requires us to prepare only the highest quality of meat and garden fresh greens. This cost us more but it is the only way we know how to maintain our reputation for serving the “Best of the Best” authentic Vietnamese classics available.
Thank you for your review and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you once again.

Had the tofu Bánh mì, one with garlic sauce the other with teriyaki.

Both were excellent.

"Breakfast" Sapporo on tap.

The location from the app is accurate, the sign can be a little difficult to spot from across the street when awning is down.
