    If you're looking for the most traditional Vietnamese Sandwich, order #5, the pate supreme. And for $1 more get extra pate--treat yoself.

    The best banh mi sandwich in NYC! If you are a fan of liver pâté, no. 5 pâté is a must!

    I always get the #4 ground pork with sweet glaze & I order it spicy. Apparently walking food tours now stop here. It's still just as great & the owner just as nice

    Can't think of a better $5 sandwich. Minced pork (#3) is my go-to, tho bring a friend or 2 and do some splitty-split. Don't fear The Spicy.

    I've tried all of the vegan sandwiches and they are all amazing! My favorites are the curry tofu and the lemongrass tofu. Cash only but cheep! Sandwiches are large and can be two meals. Get it spicy!

    Best banh mi in lower Manhattan! Grab a Vietnamese iced coffee to go along with it and don't forget cash.

    One damn good bahn mi, and just $5. Get the #3 with minced ground pork, perfectly juicy.

    I work about a block away from here. Owner is very friendly, I love to get the Pork Glaze Banh Mi but you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The lunch rush settles down around 1:30pm

    This unassuming place has one of the best sandwiches I have ever tasted!! Get the house special. And it's only five dollars!! It could have been ten dollars and still would have been an amazing deal.

    A staple of the area. Get the classic pork #1 or the vegetarian curry chicken. Order it spicy if you want them to add jalapeños.

    The filling in the bahn mi sandwiches are the best part here, abundant and tasty, the house special barbecued pork version is more flavorful than the pâté sandwich.

    #1 House Special is incredible -- and for $5 probably the best cheap eats option around. Careful though - they take requests for extra spicy REALLY seriously, so make sure you like it hot.

    I've been coming here for years and the food is consistently fresh and the old man who takes the orders is super, super nice. Can't really beat $4.50 for a giant bahn mi (easily two meals).

    This is our pick for the best Banh Mi in the city. Quick, fast, cheap, tasty and made to order! Our favorite is the #1 house special – make it spicy!

    I get the curry chicken here all the time and have yet to be disappointed. Slightly more expensive (by $0.75) than the shop around the corner, but it's worth it.

    Omg is so good! It's not even that spicy if you get the spicy one. Though my pallet for spice is good. : Bánh mì xiéu mại - meatballs with pork and water chestnut

    Subway sandwich style portions but more importantly delish! Get the seat by the window where Chuck from Billions sat 😂

    I work in the neighborhood, and the $5.50 House sandwich (option 1), spicy, is probably the best value around.

    One of the rare quality banh mis you can find for under $5. Next to the dumplings nearby, the best cheap eats in the area.

    I would recommend a chicken sandwich, it was really good. But shrimp roll had few pieces of shrimp. In three rolls I've had just one tiny piece of shrimp in each roll.

    $5 Authentic bahn mi sandwiches. Easily only of the best and cheapest lunches in the area. Cash only but there's an ATM inside.

    Delicious! I got the pâté and was pleasantly surprised. Add a little sriracha for that extra kick. Guy behind the counter is super nice and accommodating.

    This place is incredible. Sandwiches are big so shareable if you’re not super hungry and perfect if you’re starving. 10/10

    Get the #1 House Special, spicy. A big, delicious bánh mì sandwich for less than a cup of fancy coffee.

    Chicken banh mi is excellent. More expensive but slightly better than the other highly rated banh mi store

    #1 House Special and Vietnamese iced coffee. Incredibly accurate throwback to VN and a bomb banh mi.

    for an extra kick, ask for your banh mi to be made extra spicy. to really get crazy, drizzle that sandwich in sriracha.

    If this place took cards, I might not go anywhere else for lunch. Also, the spicy house special is not that spicy, it's just DELICIOUS.
