“Plain Banh mi”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

Banh mi simply ok. Yes, it's a big sandwich with fresh crusty bread, but the flavor is lacking. They stuff it with about a 1/4 cucumber, semi-pickled veggies and saucy yet bland meat. I asked for spicy and didn't get a hint of kick while eating my sandwich. You're better off heading two blocks down to Paris Bakery.

“The best Vietneamese Sandwiches in the US”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

Being of Vietnamese descent, I've had a lot of Vietnamese sandwiches in my lifetime. I stumbled upon Banh Mi Saigon with a friend while walking around in Chinatown a few years back and have come back ever since. They've moved into a larger space half a block away, but they took the jewelry store with them. If you like fresh baked bread and amazing ingredients you have to eat here. No where else compares taste and price wise. Whenever I'm in New York, I always stop by at least once.
