Came here during a visit to NYC. Had the classic banh mi sandwich with pate. The sandwich was decent size and the pate was good. The only complaint is that they put way to much pickled carrots on the sandwich. Although not the very best banh mi that I have ever had, it was pretty good. Prices for the sandwich is about 2x what I am used to paying but it was worth it to try. Maybe I will try the pho next.

Mis-managed; cashier billing intentional 16% ny sales tax theft added onto customers' bills; its popularity has enabled employees to rob from customers' blind; hence, their cashless system schemes

Its quite a small restaurant so you might have to wait for a seat/table. The pho there was amazing! Ordered the vegetarian pho with vietnamese coffee they were so authentic and delicious. They open till midnight too. Highly recommend this place if you are in NYC.

This place always has a crowd of people waiting to enter. The wait can be anywhere between 20-60 min wait depending on the time if day. It is a small place with about 10 tables and some bar seating. We went for a late dinner and waited about 15 min. We decided on pork chop banh mi and lemon grass chicken bun. Service is quick and pleasant. Food is great and you can taste all the different flavors. It is rather loud in there. Music is playing but you really can’t hear it. Prices are great for the amount of food given.

I usually come here for the Classic Beef Pho and Spring Rolls. Someone next to me ordered the Special Shrimp Poor Boy Sandwich and it looked good. Next Time!! Good service and fast. Can't go wrong with this place.
