    This combination pate sandwich is sooo good. Please tip. $4 feels like robbery. Their dessert drinks in the fridge are delicious too

    It's literally, a hole-in-the-wall, but these kinds of places are the BEST places. It's simple banhmi sandwiches but they're delicious. I got the combination!

    For the price this place is great. At $3.75 a sandwich, you can't lose. Bread is a crunchy and meats are good. Roasted pork is better than the fanci pork.

    The best is the pork combo at Saigon Sandwich. It's an ethereal blend of steamed and roasted pork, pâté, cilantro, chilies and sweet pickled carrots on a toasted baguette. Read more

    Some of the best banh mi I've had. Get the combination with roast pork, pork loaf and pate!

    Definitely the sandwich, but also try the taro drinks in the fridge! The ones with translucent bubbles make great desserts

    With some of the best Banh Mi in the Bay Area, no wonder the line for this sandwich shop is across the block. But we assure you, once you get it in your hands, it will be worth the wait. Read more

    First experience of Bahnmi but all two kinds of Bahnmi were surprisingly l and gorgeously delicious. Have never been able to find better one across the States. Miss it!

    Way overrated. Hype must create all these positive reviews because the meat was dry the bread was hard. Not even worth the $3.75.

    Yeah, it's cheap at only $3.75 but tofu banh mi is one of the messiest, soggiest sandwiches i've ever had. So oily and just plain gross.

    If bread wasn't so bad for me, I'd eat here every day. And spend the money saved on happy hour at boozeland next door.

    A veggie tofu sandwich I had was spicy, but it was somewhat pleasant spicyness I've never tasted before. Large sandwiches for a low price and they open early, so it's a good place for a breakfast.

    good banh mi and a great budget lunch option in the area! get the combo, and try to push the salad and peppers evenly into the sandwich before your first bite, for an even flavor throughout.

    Vegetarian tofu sandwich is great. No where to really sit so shamelessly stuff your face as you walk down the street.

    The combo is where it's at. No need to pick between awesomely creamy pate and juicy roast pork

    Had the Tofu Bahn Mi, which strangely enough isn't displayed on their menu. It was $3.75 worth of good.

    Huge, delicious sandwich for $3.75! Cash only. Only downside is location - it's in the middle of sketchy handful of blocks. Pro tip: if you're walking, take Polk to Eddy

    Grab a bite at the undisputed king of Vietnamese sandwiches, where lunch can still be had for mere pocket change. BBQ Pork is the standard order here (splurge for the combo with a slathering of pâté). Read more

    BBQ Pork is the standard order here, but anything on the menu will only run you $3.75 and comes stuffed on a French baguette with the usual accoutrements of pickled carrots, jalapeños, and cilantro. Read more
