    Used to love it more, but there's too much meat (ratio is off) and too much of this sweet sauce in the sandwich.

    Best Banh Mi in the Bay Area. Price has gone up compared to before but still unbeatable within the area. Roast Pork sandwich is the star per usual.

    Roast pork for $4
  • Aldo R.
    The chicken sandwich it's really really good and cheap, but they add some peppers and gets super spicy, if you're not into spicy food just let them know.
  • Darrelle M.
    Heads up vegetarians: This is the best tofu banh mi I have ever had. Also one of the best sandwiches I've ever had, full stop. Only $4, cash only

    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

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    바게트는 씹기가 힘들 정도로 딱딱하고, 안의 내용물은 너무 짜다. 왜 인기가 있는지 이해가 안긴다.
