    Try the No. 1, with several kinds of pork, pickled vegetables, and a mound of cilantro on a baguette that's perfectly crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. Read more

    Simply the best Vietnamese sandwich in NYC

  • Jess N.

    Some things/a lot of things are just better getting outside of Manhattan. Fresh ingredients & warm bread... by far, NYC's best banh mi ($5) & the "Special" coffee is sweet, heartwarming goodness.

    $4.50 banh mi

    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.

    Donna Mc · February 16
  • Lyndsey M.

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

    Lyndsey Matthews · February 7
  • Danika L.

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

    Danika Landers · February 3
  • Lori L.

    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 :(

    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 -.-

    Great banh mi and Vietnamese coffee.

  • Felicia Y.

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

    Felicia Yesari · May 9, 2014
  • Dan E.

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

    Dan E · April 9, 2014

    Go for an avocado shake on a warm sunny day

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

    Yummy Vietnamese coffee

  • Rohan S.

    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!

    Can't go wrong with #4 and Iced Ovaltine or Horlicks.

  • Village Voice

    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...

    Try the Chicken Banh Mi

    Mike Chau · May 25, 2013
  • Minnie C.

    Best avocado shakes sold here.

    Minnie Chan · May 15, 2013
  • 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
  • Lyudmila G.

    Best Banh Mi ever!

    Lyudmila G. · March 21, 2013

    lives up to hype. #1 and #7 the two best banh mi's I've ever had. papaya milkshake also great

    Ro Gupta · March 17, 2013
  • Sean D.

    The grilled pork # 8 is one of the tastiest sandwiches I have ever had.

    Sean D. · October 6, 2012
  • Jerömy

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

    Currently my favorite place to get Viet sandwiches now that the other one that I used to like went downhill. :(

    Liana Lau · December 4, 2011
  • Minnie C.

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

    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!

    Becky Wong · October 9, 2011
  • Christen D.

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

    Christen Duong · August 27, 2011
  • Ian W.

    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.

    Ian Westcott · August 15, 2011
  • 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

    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

    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.

    Frank Kim · February 24, 2011
  • The Corcoran Group

    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.

    The Corcoran Group · February 11, 2011
  • Chris C.

    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.

    Chris Cummings · January 17, 2011
  • The New York Times

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