    Saigon Banh Mi specialized in hero, making its own perfect baguettes having some rice flour mixed in with the wheat, and dressing them with fillings that ran from pâté to barbecued pork to chicken. Read more

    No 7 (Banh mi 'Beef stew') is my go-to sandwich. Soft braised tendons and generous cuts of tender beef on crispy bread. The regular banh mi is solid too. Cash only, not too surprising.

    Very solid choice! The meat is deliciously caramelized and the bread is crispy. A bit dry and too much cilantro but overall very good especially for 8$!

    The classic Banh Mi (listed as #1 on their menu) is a souped up version of a classic. The cilantro is super fresh and the roast pork is sweet, tangy, and just a little bit crispy.

    Great Vietnamese sandwiches and fast service too. This shop is run by mostly ladies and it's not overpriced. BBQ pork is my favorite and its traditional. For dessert get the rainbow ice.

    Oh my gosh. I’ve tried three sandwiches and all of them were very delicious. My daughter had chicken rolls and she was satisfied as well.

    #6 Buddhist spicy! cheap and generously stuffed with many veggie goodies - wood ear, shiitake, baby corn, tofu and your usual banh mi fixings. whole wheat baguettes available

    Pork Bahn Mi: Shuko chef Nick Kim says it’s the freshly baked baguettes: “Like the rice with sushi, the bread is often overlooked, but it’s so important.”

    For the value, it's the best Bahn Mi you can get, period. Get the Spicy BBQ sandwich, cus it's outrageously good.

    Get the classic #1. Fragrant, sweetly caramelized, slow-cooked pork is stuffed into a hot, crusty baguette along with fiery chilies, cool cucumber, shredded daikon and a fistful of cilantro. Read more

    Chicken curry is great. The spicy version was not hot at all. Opt for extra spicy if you're in search of a kick

    More expensive every year by $.25 and less pork and pickled vegetables. Will think twice when going here from now on. Currently priced $5.25. Been eating this when it was $2.50.

    House made pork sausage forms the basis for Sandwich #1. Added to this is the bland, Bologna-like pork "pate," pickled root vegetables, spears of fresh cuke, and wads of cilantro- cheap and delicious!

    The bbq pork bahn mi is great value for $4.50. Just as good as the ones you pay $8-$10 all over NYC. Cash only.

    Grilled pork banh mi every time. Their baguettes are better than the average in the neighborhood. Flaky and soft!

    Get the Banh Mi. It's a Vietnamese sandwich. If you've never had it, go there and try it. Everybody that ends up trying this place usually makes it regular stop for food.

    Great for vegetarians - try the vegetarian sandwich with mushrooms, tofu, baby corn and make it spicy (jalapeños). Mock curry chicken also tasty. Only $5 each for huge sandwich!

    Good bread when it's fresh and the pickled veggies are abundant, but meats here are just alright. The one exception is a meatball variation, which is quite juicy.

    Pork Banh Mi and Chicken Banh Mi were very tasty, however, the bread was a little stale and the spicy-ness was lackluster.

    Just as good as the hype. Large sandwiches stuffed with fresh ingredients, all < $5 including tax. Try a coconut milk dessert for a sweet finish.

    If you want a banh mi to go for the next day just let them know and they'll put the veggies on side.

    Guys, the banh mi are great, but the one liter Wheat Aloe juice is where it's at. two fifty, and it's got a secret opening top that you'll have to have one of the locals show you how to open.

    Curry chicken (#9) - only get spicy if you can REALLY tolerate spicy food. They put slices of jalapeños in the sandwich.

    incredibly fast, CHEAP, and yummy, but the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired- it's definitely a grab-and-go kind of place.
