25k banh my

Tasty mushroom-based banh my. 25k is the most I’ve ever paid for such a thing but I guess that’s Saigon for you.
Extra points for using a paper bag but then minus points for, of course, trying to put the paper bag in a plastic bag 😂

Cheap and good

I got the veggie sticky rice and it was great, a small portion but it's good for a snack if you don't need a whole meal.

Quite disappointing

Communication was quite difficult, I asked for a vegan banh mi with no butter and no cheese and got one with butter anyway... Luckily, I noticed it when I opened the banh mi to check what was inside and before I actually tried it so I could get back to the shop. There were some English speaking customers who explained them I didn't want butter and I got a new one.

The banh mi wasn't bad although quite poorly filled...

Bog standard Banh Mi

Nothing too special here. Just an okay Banh mi for a decent price. Just make sure you ask for no mayo, as mayo goes in the chay Banh Mi by default.

If you want a better Banh mi for just 5K more, and you’re close by, you’re better off going to Au Lac Healthy World. Banh Mi’s there are out of this world.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Serves meat, Just an okay Banh mi, Limits options

Very good banh mi

Forgot to ask for no butter but that’s my fault. Very tasty though, the sauce was delicious and it had some kind of fruit in it as well which was a nice change and really delicious.

Good breakfast

Cheap (20.000) and I like their mushrooms. This place was eight in front of my hostel, so I took one banh mi for breakfast everyday.

Báhn mi before beers!

The veggie Báhn Mi was 20,000VND which is like 65p. What more can you expect than bread mushrooms and salad???

Pros: Cheap, Quick, Easy to read menu

Cons: Slimy mushrooms , No where to sit

cheap and delicious

The vegetarian banh mi is very tasty, it’s quick and very cheap. Especially as there’s no many veg Banh Mi options that I’ve seen this is great!!

I don't know what everyone else is on about. It's cheap street food that happens to be vegan if you say no butter. Does anyone realise chay means vegetarian not vegan?
Cheap marinated mushrooms stuffed in a bun. Zero complaints.

Pros: mushrooms in a bun

Cons: people complaining about good simple food

Easy takeaway

Ordered both banh mi and banh beo. First thing the shopkeeper did was butter my roll. It may have been margarine but as he didn't speak English and I didn't want to take the chance, so I gestured for one without butter. Filling was good, lots of mushrooms. Banh bao was nice too.

Pros: Easy, simple takeaway , Good taste, Cheap

Cons: May use butter

Quick, cheap eats near backpacker area

Great location if you are staying in the backpacker area, but be careful because some of the buildings have the same number, so it might be confusing to find. Anpham is almost just opposite Zeus greek takeout place and Espy pizza place.

It's pretty no fuss, simple, takeout food. The banh mi and banh bao are pretty good and inexpensive and fills a hole. Quick snack type food perfect to take with you on the bus if you are heading out for a tour somewhere.

Pros: Quick, Inexpensive, Veg bah mi and banh bao

Cons: Numbers a bit confusing
