    Not cheapest compared to others in C'Town but ingredients & tastes are fresh, clean & pretty authentic..making this Vietnamese the best pho, Cha gio, Grilled Pork Chops, & banh mi place in NYC!

    Great prices and great for a quick bite, despite that it's pretty crowded during lunch. The Vietnamese coffee is authentic and their banh mi's and bùn's (vermicelli noodle bowls) are great for Togo.

    Banh mi classic is legit. Summer rolls are meh. Pho broth is literally some of the best I've had. Cash only. Long wait times if you're dining in but worth it.

    If you're hungry, go for the grilled pork chops, shrimp, & spring rolls over rice or vermicelli. It's delicious, filling, and a steal at only $11.95.

    So fresh! Crisp clean flavors with quality ingredients make for some of the tastiest banh mi around. The pho is also very good - so if you're craving something hot and soothing for the soul, do it.

    Closest and most consistent place to west coast quality pho I've had in my several years in NYC. Great ingredients, many options, and lovely service. Love that they're open late but cash only!

    Absolutely amazing! And cheap! You can have a HUGE noodle soup for 8 bucks (which you can share, quite frankly). Try the beef pho or brisket pho. And the cucumber lemonade! What an experience!

    Get the duck com, which is duck with rice. Great spot for quick meals. Low key, but always crowded. You would wait less if you come by yourself. They keep the restaurant quite warm during winter.

    Get the food to go, because there's always a line out the door. Their bahn mi sandwich is very good. And beware: the spicy version is actually very spicy. One sandwich will keep you full all night.

    The pho is definitely on the upper end of quality, but the spring rolls are f#cking amazing. Also, get a cup of Vietnamese coffee (hot or cold) to go when you leave. You won't regret it.

    The best part is the bánh mì, pho, and spring rolls will be the best you've ever had. Second best part is that you get more dishes than you can eat for $10-15 bucks

    Solid and most authentic viet spot in the west village and surrounding area. If you're ever in the mood for a pho fix or craving some spring rolls, this place definitely hits the spot.

    probably the best pho I've ever had. Place was packed when I went. Prices are very reasonable & the grilled lemongrass chicken pho was to die for 😋

    Affordable, tasty Vietnamese. Friendly staff! The grilled pork on rice vermicelli noodles and the beef phô are personal faves. GENEROUS servings, so come hungry & be prepared to take leftovers home!

    Finally a Vietnamese restaurant that has the best of everything. Pho, Banh Mi sandwiches, Spring rolls and vermicelli bowls! This is now my favorite Vietnamese restaurant. And they're open late!

    I had the Saigon Shack Pho and my friend had the lemongrass chicken pho. Both were delicious and huge, but the chicken was extra special. The brisket was my favorite meat of the pho.

    Spicy Special or Saigon Shack pho. Perfect sliced beef topping. Spring rolls and Vietnam sandwiches are also fabulous but I bet you can't finish them and the pho all at once ;)

    Good veggie banh mi with tofu. Love the sauce on the side, you can taste every ingredient (ginger sauce) in it. Very fresh great portions. Great service as well. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Food here is so good and inexpensive-don't expect great service. Our waitress took our order while smacking with food in her mouth. They will snatch your plate while you're still eating so eat fast

    Very good, highly recommend for authentic food. For comments about wait staff trying to rush you out, it's because their menu is extremely inexpensive, so they compensate with large turnover.

    The food is delicious. Service is very quick. There is usually a line, but it goes fast. It's cheap and cash only. My favorite dish is duck with rice.

    Absolutely amazing viet! Haven't tried the pho but the banh mi and vermicelli salad were delish :) always a bit crowded though

    The crab cake banh mi was phenomenal and spicy. Communal seating was fine since we were a group of six anyway. Hated that we were next to the door and the frigid air kept rushing in, but that's on us.

    Affordable banh mi & pho. (Often crowded at lunchtime for this reason.) Portions are generous. Keep in mind that it's cash only.

    The BBQ pork bahn mi was delicious; but not really traditional Vietnamese pork bahn mi. I think the beef or the ham would have been more traditional, but still really good food!

    First time having pho and OMG! Sorry grandma but this beats chicken noodle soup. I got the lemongrass chicken and it was perfect in every way. Also cucumber water!

    Make sure to bring cash! Fried spring rolls are delectable as are the pork chop and lemongrass chicken phos. Vietnamese iced coffee is sooooo good too. :)

    Best pho in NYC. The lemongrass chicken is also delicious. Long lines but they move quickly, and take out is really fast. I love this place!

    Really good noodle soup and good value. If there is a queue make sure u go to the front to get your name on the list otherwise you'll be waiting forever!

    Don't be put off by the 15 minute wait; this place has a quick and slick turnaround. Had a delicious pork chop bun mhi and a good chicken pho.

    Tasty food for a very fair price. What else could you ask for? Highly recommend the lemongrass chicken pho, the spring rolls and the cucumber juice.
  • Naisham J.
    The classic banh mi sandwich was delicious and a bargain. I will definitely be back to try other menu items

    Define rude...you fuckin' hipsters need to realize this ain't your mommy and daddy's kitchen. Good food, great prices (for the area), fast/friendly efficient staff. 8/10.

    My go to spot to pick up something and chill at Washington square park. Vermicelli is bomb, but you can't go wrong with other options!

    My second favorite pho spot in NYC. There's always a wait but it's well worth. You can't go wrong with the house pho and summer rolls.

    Wow, huge portions for low prices. Get the Saigon Shack pho and summer rolls with shrimp! You could probably split one portion with a second person.

    This cash-only eatery serves up some excellent banh mi (get the Spicy Pork Chop) and pho. Beware of lines during peak dining hours, though.

    Their pork chops are delicious. Inexpensive place. The only bad thing is the place is really small so it's hard to get seating even in the middle of the day.

    I'm Vietnamese and I thought the banh mi, pork chop bun, and pho were pretty solid. Get a cafe sua da to go. Fast service. Good for lunch.

    Although everyone comes here for the super tasty (and cheap) sandwiches, the Vietnamese drip coffee is awesome! Cash only by the way so plan ahead.

    One of the better viet places in ny. Spring rolls are in rice wrappers (how it is traditionally made). Broths are pretty good and not laden with salt.

    Best Pho I ever had in NY. They use different type of rice noodle and its great. Classic Banh Mi is cheap and tasty, great for lunch.

    The most underrated menu item is the papaya & mango salad. Add lemongrass chicken or grilled pork chop & get spicy chili sauce for dressing.

    Large portions-- I love the Saigon shack pho and the bun plates-- esp the lemongrass chicken! Good for solo and 2-3 ppl, can get crowded.
