    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.

    Treat yourself to a $3 Tiger Beer at An Choi as you explore the LES' 100 GATES Project, an open-art exhibition comprised of 100 street murals painted by notable artists on exterior gates. Read more

    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!

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

    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.

    Not authentic but food is decent. Very electric lower east side vibe, friendly service, and they tend to get busy for dinner on the weekends. If you are indecisive, there's pho and banh mi combo.

    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.

    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 :-)

    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.

    pho and banh mi are made for each other and an choi's BEEF PHO BANH MI is yuuum. it comes with a side of pho broth for dipping fun!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    An Choi, the Lower East Side Vietnamese street-eats spot, has opened this next-door shop peddling pickles. Look out for daikon, jalapeño and okra varieties. Read more

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

    Best combo ever! Half Bahn mi and half portion pho of your choice is the best of both worlds, still largely portioned

    Get the Pho Bo Dac Biet and don't forget to request the herb plate... you'll need it to add all the extra flavors to the dish! Read more

    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.

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

    Hipster Viet joint that serves... hipster Viet food. Not crazy authentic but a fun atmosphere for pho, summer rolls, and banh mi.

    The crab pho was disappointingly flavorless BUT the chicken bahn mi with fried egg was delicious!

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

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

    The Vietnamese iced coffee is excellent! They use Cafe du Monde coffee.

    Kinda underwhelmed. Definitely tasty, but more of a "fusion" place than an authentic place. Try the playful main dishes over the bahn mi and soups.

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

    The pho is great! Get the salt and pepper shrimp to share beforehand.
