No interac. I will never go there again. I was hungry today and stopped by but could not buy a sandwich. The other sub store on 5th Ave has interac so they will be my new spot.

For the lineup at the door I was expecting better. I got the Sate Beef and the quality of the meat just wasn't there compared to the best banh mi I have had in other cities, it came pale and flavorless and drowning in process cheese, which is a totally unnecessary banh Mih ingredient if you ask me. I kind... More

This place has the best Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sub's) in the city. The meat is always flavorful and tender, the toppings are fresh and the service is quick and friendly. The value for lunch is excellent, no wonder it is lined up every weekday at lunch time! I am a customer for life.

They have the best vietnamese subs. Parking is hard and there is usually line ups but well worth it.

This might be the best sandwich I've ever eaten- and I've eaten them in Vietnam! The people, staff & customers were friendly! It's worth the wait in line! Great deal for the price!!! If I ever make it back to Calgary, I'll eat another!

A family run sub. place located in Chinatown. It is a takeout place. Lineup can be long especially around peak hours. My favorite is the satay chicken submarine. The ingredients are fresh especially the bun. For some reason, the bun is exceptionally cripy compared with other places.

This is perhaps the original Vietnamese sub joint in Calgary, and perhaps the best. They offer a wide variety of meats with fresh garnishes on an excellent French (Indo-French?) roll. Try it for a satisfying lunch but be prepared for a queue at peak hours.

I must say these are the best Vietnamese subs hands down! I was in Hanoi, Vietnam in March and had many Banh Mi and I must say all the flavours are bang on at Thi Thi!! Way to go! The bread is so fresh as are all the ingredients used in the the subs. Delicious! I highly recommend this place,... More
