    I have bought there beef bulgogi banh mi for years. I like it spicy. You can add egg. I also love there durian shake but I try not to order it too much since I'm lactose intolerant.

    The combo of piping-hot fries, kimchi, spicy mayo, jalapeños and scallions (plus the optional but highly recommended addition of a runny fried egg), is nothing short of genius. Read more

    The vegetarian spring rolls were delicious and not greasy. Good prices, nice staff, clean, mellow environment, nice bathroom, and free WIFI. I will definitely go back.

    Best bulgogi banh mi I’ve had! Next time will definitely add the egg! Super juicy, flavorful meat melts in your mouth as the delicious pickled, crunchy veggies are the perfect complement. Yum!

    So many delicious sandwiches! Try out the Kakuni Pork Belly! It just melts in your mouth, complemented by the bread. Also, each stamp is per $10 worth of spending now, not per sandwich.

    Order the bulgogi bahn mi with a runny egg! Also get a Vietnamese iced coffee. There’s always a line here. Although the line moves fast, it can take a while for your food to come - it is worth it!

    I really love this concept. Food is delicious although it's a little expensive but that's the only issue I have with this place and it's virtually impossible to get to if your disabled.

    What a variety of baby mi's to choose from! Kimchi fries don't need an explanation, and the chicken wings are super moist!! Now a Vietnamese iced coffee to wash it all down #worththeheartattack.

    Legit with the spicy banh mi. They don't play when you ask and order your sandwich with the extra green sauce. Pair it with a cool refreshing Vietnamese iced coffee.

    Im a (not so recent) convert to the veggie life. The biggest thing i crave for is pork. (Like in banh mi!) Boy did this spots veggie ham banh mi take care of that!

    Can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches. Cheap and generous portions. Banh mi fries and viet iced coffee must adds

    Don't expect traditional banh mi here. It's another case of making everything fusion. That aside, the JoJu Monster was delicious. The coffee is on the sweet side, so ask for less sweet.

    Find modern takes on the Vietnamese banh mi, with fillings such as Pork Kakuni and Beef Bulgogi. Don't skip an order of the banh mi fries, either.

    Banh mi fries with a running egg on top, pork belly sandwich, sesame milkshake 👍 & chicken wings (too greasy😖)

    A very different take on the Vietnamese sandwich. Try the BBQ shredded pork but make sure you get an egg with it. The egg is worth it.

    Kimchi fries surprisingly delicious! Wasn't too impressed by the pork belly banh mi, I liked the Joju one better!

    Tried the pork belly and it was a little too jellied for my taste although I had been warned. I will go back and try the original, but this place is clean, friendly and has VERY reasonable prices.

    Vegetarian ham makes me feel like I'm not missing much from carnivore counterparts. Get the ban mi fries to be super full!!

    Their “green bomb” is the spiciest option and it’s not terribly spicy. So if you like your food somewhat hot, don’t be afraid to try it.

    The hype is real. Kakuni pork belly with green sauce, add a runny egg = champ. Skip the fries.

    Limited seating. We went on a Sunday and more than half of the tables were being used for people playing some sort of fantasy board game. Not eating. Just playing the game. We took the food to go.

    Don't forget to add a fried egg and ask for extra spicy sauce on the side. Can't get enough!
