What a find! Quaint location, delicious food, kitchen was speaking Vietnamese - about as good as you can get without flying to Vietnam. Lots of vgeterian options. Fantastic chicken pho.

Had to wait about 40 minutes to be seated, which was a bit annoying, but everything after that was great. Cheap prices, yummy food, giant portions. Will come back again.

While the namesake sandwich offerings at this teeny-tiny Vietnamese bistro are fine indeed, the real reasons to come here lie elsewhere. I recommend starting with the out-of-this-world (regular or vegetarian) Crispy Imperial Rolls. They have all the heavenly flavor of deep-fried goodness without being greasy...More

Ate a lunchtime meal and handed my card to the waiter for payment. While the waiter was closing out our transaction, the card was stolen off their desk. I believe it's fully unacceptable that I should have to be worried about my card being stolen...More
