Hole in the wall? Or best Asian food in Durham? I say the latter (or maybe both? :-) But this is a fantastic reliable Vietnamese eatery tucked away on 9th street that always delivers. Featuring a daily specials board (that's always good), the food is made fresh to order and the sauce is one of a kind delicious. My fave... More

We had takeout of springrolls, tofu main course and pork buns. This place only does Vietnamese two days a week. Saturday and I think Wednesday. Its a very simple place that is mostly takeout. We often bring our own takeout containers to avoid using so much disposable containers. Everyone in our group loved the springrolls and porkbuns. Most of us... More

Fast, cheap, and always good. This isn't a fancy place, but it's genuine and delicious. No, they don't have bubble tea or other trendy asian quirks, but they have been consistently good for 30 years.

Banh's Chinese and Vietnamese Cuisine has been a wonderful little gem on 9th Street for decades. Returning to Durham after a long absence I was delighted to find Banh's exactly as remembered. Same lovely ladies behind the counter, same menu, same everything. As is my custom, I had an egg roll and the delicious Vietnamese Hu Tieu rice noodle soup... More

Very pleasant and friendly service. Food was average, but the helpings were very generous. Very basic decor but seemed a very popular place from the No. of people there.

Make sure that you check out their specials, it's not on the main menu, so it's not immediately obvious. I got the special #1, rice noodle soup with shrimp, ground pork, BBQ pork, celery, and ground peanuts.

We started with spring rolls and tried each of the lunch specials: shrimp with snow peas, chicken and broccoli, tofu and broccoli, and ginger chicken. We were asked how spicy we wanted each dish, and selected steamed or fried rice. The place is clean (100% rating) and quiet and has about 6 tables but some order to take out. The... More

Been coming here for years....nothing much has changed over that time but the food is still really yummy, and the staff is so wonderful. Be sure you realize that they accept ONLY cash--no credit or debit cards. I especially love their soups. Wednesdays and Saturdays they have Vietnamese specials and the line is often out the door at lunchtime. Support... More

This is a Durham/Duke institution. I have been going here for +20 years. The decor, the menu and the smiles haven't changed. Make sure to come in on Weds and Saturdays (I think!) for traditional Vietnamese dishes.

Can't believe I haven't reviewed Bahn's before now. Cuisine is primarily Chinese and Vietnamese. I've been (mostly) lunching here for years and years, because it's good, a good deal, freshly prepared (when very busy there may be a slightly uncomfortable delay), and the small family staff are very personable. The full offering of Vietnamese specialties is only offered Wednesday and... More
