Top notch bahn mi in Chinatown/LES. Loved the bahn mi Saigon (with grilled pork). Also enjoyed the cold shrimp roll. Prices are incredibly good. Service super fast. And great vibe, with many locals. A must

Again I got the Curry Chicken. I had the choice to have it spicy or not. The spicy is not too strong. Not at all. The sandwich is huge for $5.75. Good to get there early because seating is limited.

This place must be famous for its sandwich which I realised later. I am not a great fan of sandwich so I tried some Vietnamese noodles and I never had such a bland food in my life. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

Really cheap and quick sandwiches. The food quality was good and the area was clean. It was nice to actually to be able to sit inside to get away from the heat.

Very clean restaurant with pretty good open space. They only take cash. I got the BBQ pork bahn mi. It was okay but considering it's only $4.50 it's better than any other I've tried in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The bahn mi has ground pork, with...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
