    I love a classic Bahn Mi but the pork belly is by far the one you need to get.

    Hipster Viet joint that serves... hipster Viet food. Not crazy authentic but a fun atmosphere for pho, summer rolls, and banh mi.
  • Angela W.
    Best combo ever! Half Bahn mi and half portion pho of your choice is the best of both worlds, still largely portioned

    Get the Tam Tam, which is a tamarind cocktail. Sweet and delicious. Not what I was expecting!

    Awesome interior vibe — try to sit on the side with the bar and the vintage pinup poster wall.

    the banh mi here is actually pretty weak, at least in comparison to the more authentic places in the same area, but the environment is much nicer. you can't go wrong with pho & a seat at the bar.

    I love that they offer a pho and banh mi combo because sometimes a girl can't just pick one!

    I love Bánh mi and I love Pho, so I would definitly recommend the half bánh mi half Pho combo.

    Great banh mi and other Vietnamese dishes. I love the old world artwork and advertisements decor.

    Best Pho is the city I swear! Also - the salad roles are amazing + veggie egg rolls. The girls who work there are absolutely lovely.

    Still on the quest to find Phò as good as they have in the 503. This isn't it. Not bad, not great. They all just miss that depth that Phò Hung has off.

    The lychee cocktail at the bar was amazing! Nice and cozy! Will definitely try the restaurant next time as the menu looks great

    Pho broth was quite nice - a nice color, good southern-pho style sweetness, and unctuous toasted spice undertones. This stuff is high quality and definitely no MSG.

    The best veggie pho in the city. House Special Beef Pho is also the shit.

    Really warm and cozy venue, great choices of pho, and banh mi special with pho on the side is amazing

    Banh mi is yummy, pho was decent. I've had better Vietnamese food (for cheaper). I may go back to try the neat drink menu (cocky rooster?) Also the service was great.

    Super yummy, quick Vietnamese sandwichs, Pho and Bun. Recommend the bahn mi with pork belly and add the egg!

    We had to wait far more than expected, and at first the staff has been pretty rude too. The food was good though, we loved the chicken noodles way more than the House special Pho.

    Cute place with a cozy vibe. But didn't think their pho or banh mi was very exceptional

    The pho was great. The lemongrass tofu was great. Skip the shrimp vermicelli.

    Steak and eggs at brunch served with a baguette and a side of paté! Really good! And a $5 Bloody Mary that is almost like a gazpacho with alcohol.

    Great atmosphere and good portions! Lemongrass chicken sandwhich was very tasty, although it seemed a little too salty by the end. Make sure you have a full glass of water :-)

    Don't waste your time with the sandwiches the pho is amazing!! Cocky rooster was also great but a bit to spicy for me as I drained 4 glasses of water in the process of drinking it!

    Brilliant unassuming Vietnamese in the heart of the Lower East Side. LES is a treasure trove of cool spots!

    Get the pho & banh mi combo. Best of both worlds. The cocktails here are phenomenal my favourites are the Wild Whiskey and the Cocky Rooster.

    Chicken pho is great. If you feel like mixing it up, try the Vietnamese meatball sandwich.

    Vietnamese cuisine meets hipster culture. Our tip: This is one of the only spots in NYC that serves authentic Vietnamese food that’s made by an authentic Vietnamese staff.

    Decent sandwich but pricier than most banh mi places. The chicken was too dry though and required a lot of hoisin sauce and sriracha sauce just to give it some flavor.

    What a charming place. Wish food lived up to the atmosphere. Skip the Spring rolls for sure. The Pho is nice, albeit a bit oily. The Banh mi has too much bread proportional to the stuffing.

    Was so ready to love the food at this charming place. But both the crispy spring rolls and the chicken Pho disappointed. Both turned out to b too oily and bland. Service was the best part if the meal.

    I will say that as a banh mi joint, this place does not really compete, but everything else is great. I would definitely be back for another combo or for just the Pho.

    This place is pretty much made for folks who have never eaten real Vietnamese pho, coffee, or banh mi. Silly people who frequent this place are only doing it for the "vibe." Food sucks, sorry.

    They have Tiger Beer. One of the best beer's in the world, probably the best Asian Continent beer you can drink.
