    Cheap and terrific banh mi (the meatball version’s best) on the northern edge of Brooklyn Chinatown, with ace coffee.

    "A perfectly crisp baguette, chewy roast pork, fresh cold cuts and pickled veggies...Ba Xuyen's #1 ($4) has them all and more."

    Unoficially, they’re the “Kings” of Banh Mi – better than everything in Chinatown. You can’t go wrong with any choice – try the Banh Mi with meatballs.

    I've been eating their banh mis ever since I was 10 (over a decade ago) and they have never failed me! Their bread and sandwich ingredients are always fresh and tasty. I love #1!

    My favorite legit banh mi place around NYC. If you're going to eat it right away, get your sandwich toasted.

    This Vietnamese sandwich shop is only open until 6:30 pm, but it is so good people hurry home from work to score their banh mi. Our favorite is the one made with canned sardines, mmm...

    The 'special' hot coffee is chock full o nuts with a healthy dollop of sweetened condensed milk and half and half to taste. No sugar required.

    #1 came with head cheese - not my thing. #4 (meatball) rocks

    For a quick breakfast, grab a couple spring rolls and an iced coffee. The coffee is actually Cafe Du Monde from New Orleans, brewed Vietnamese-style and poured over ice with condensed milk.

    number 9 grilled chicken! there are an extra 3 sandwiches on the menu that some don't know of. iced coffee in the morning - I'm a regular and today's tasted weird but they wouldn't remake it -.-

    Cindy Ung · November 1, 2014
  • Dan E.

    Red bean milk tea is outrageously good. Can't go wrong with the sandwiches.

    Dan E · April 9, 2014
  • Charley M.

    Amazing bahn mi for five bucks! Get number one or meatball.

    Charley Ma · January 5, 2014
  • Jiho S.

    Best banh mi in Brooklyn, and maybe even NYC. Go for the regular or the grilled pork sandwich

    Jiho Song · April 7, 2013

    Get the Number 8 is the most unique, best Banh Mi you'll have. It's a spicy and delicious meatball sandwich.

    Jerömy · July 9, 2012
  • Minnie C.

    Favorite is #1 and I also recommend their iced coffee, its not any ordinary coffee !

    Go to the No. 1: Banh Mi Pate Thit Nguoi—Layers of Ham, Head Cheese, Pork Roll, Pork Teriyaki, BBQ Pork, Cucumber, Cilantro, Pickled Radish & Carrot, Pate, and Butter. Read more

    Tourist tip: this banh mi place on the edge of Brooklyn's Chinatown is the truth. Hearty and filling, try one with a taro shake or cafe sua da - you're welcome.

  • Lyndsey M.

    Best banh mi in New York hands down. Start with the #1 and head back for the meatball banh mi.

    Lyndsey Matthews · 2 weeks ago
  • Danika L.

    Get the #1 Combo Banh Mi. Don't let the ingredient "head cheese" scare you. It's delicious. You're welcome.

    Ba Xuyen is a strong contender for NYC's best banh mi. At a mere $5 for a sandwich, you can't go wrong with the traditional #1 or the #5 with BBQ Pork.

    the best banh mi I've had. too bad the hair wedged deep in mine ensures I'll never have it again :(

    The sandwiches are amazing. Get some of the cookies to go. The steamed rolls are wonderful. They serve extra peanut sauce with them.

    Yummy Vietnamese coffee

    The meatball banh mi (which is basically a Vietnamese submarine sandwich) was yummy and really wholesome.

    Rohan Sood · December 16, 2013
  • Lyudmila G.

    #1, #3, #8 are the best! Actually, it does not matter which # you choose - you cannot go wrong with any of the choices!

    Pâté Thit Nguôi

  • NearSay NYC

    This is the best Viet sandwich stores in NYC, hands down!! We suggest the Pate Thit Nuong- Pate, ham, sweet pressed sausage, pork roll head cheese and white roast pork with red rind.

    NearSay NYC · July 28, 2011
  • Jeremy F.

    Cup of water is 50 cents with ice, 25 cents without. But refills are free

    The sardine (#7) is unlike any ole fillet-o-fish your taste buds have ever experienced. I know the photograph on their menu is not the most flattering but DAYMN it's a delicious sandwich

    Mac Vin · April 2, 2011
  • Frank K.

    Believe the hype on the Banh mi there, so damn good, and the avocado shake I had was yummy too.
