What's distinctive about Vietnamese sandwiches (bánh mì) is the pickled carrot and radish. The content of the sandwich doesn't matter - it could be pork, chicken, pâté (never steak, though - Saigon ain't Philly!) - but the nước mắm fish sauce with which to pickle the carrot MUST be mixed correctly. The one at Bun Mee is definitely not! The... More

We passed by this restaurant and saw delicious corns with spicy sauce on them so we decided to try. Banh mi was not crunchy. I donot like pork with fat and skin in my banh mi. They advertised broiled corns but I thought they were boiled corns

Liked this place a lot - sweet staff and great bahn mi sandwiches. Both tofu and bread were crispy and delicious. Also the place itself was cute and nice to hang around in.

We did a take-out dinner -- one a chicken with rice, the other pork -- and enjoyed them both. The pork came with hot peppers and was tastier for me. But both dishes were fine without being even remotely gourmet.

This is a fun little restaurant with good sandwiches that are a take on the Vietnamese Bahn Mi. They offer a spicy and non-spicy version of each of their sandwiches, so it's even good for people who are a little less adventurous. The prices are reasonable, but it's not what I'd call inexpensive.

Best part of my steak sandwich was the crusty bread. They didn't have the drinks as posted on the menu. Not very comfortable. Service quite abrupt. I wouldn't return.

I wanted a quick bite, nothing too fancy. That's easier said than done in that part of Fillmore. I had the Lemongrass Pork with House Mayo Banh Mi. It was brought to my table. It was not large, pretty tasty. It cost over $9, which strikes me as being a bit much for a small sandwich.

I crave the Chicken Salad with jalapeño peppers! I make my husband happy by also getting him the Sweet Potato Fries! I know there are other great items on the menu, but I had these first and am in this great rut! We often stop here for lunch more than once every trip to San Francisco!

The five of us went around the corner to BUN MEE on Fillmore for dinner. We chose it because we had observed people eating in the windows & it looked good & price was right. I had the Caramel Citrus bowl w/pork, $11; hubby had Bun Noodle bowl, $11.75, son had Peanut Bowl,$10.50. We added a catfish sandwich for the... More

You order first and then they take the food to your table. In my case they'd forgotten about my beverage. I ate the chicken sandwich, and it was good but I wished I had ordered one of the bowls. Those looked great. The sandwich had so much cold vegetables on top that it kind of hid the check in flavor.
