Banh's Chinese and Vietnamese Cuisine has been a wonderful little gem on 9th Street for decades. Returning to Durham after a long absence I was delighted to find Banh's exactly as remembered. Same lovely ladies behind the counter, same menu, same everything. As is my custom, I had an egg roll and the delicious Vietnamese Hu Tieu rice noodle soup... More

Very pleasant and friendly service. Food was average, but the helpings were very generous. Very basic decor but seemed a very popular place from the No. of people there.

Make sure that you check out their specials, it's not on the main menu, so it's not immediately obvious. I got the special #1, rice noodle soup with shrimp, ground pork, BBQ pork, celery, and ground peanuts.

We started with spring rolls and tried each of the lunch specials: shrimp with snow peas, chicken and broccoli, tofu and broccoli, and ginger chicken. We were asked how spicy we wanted each dish, and selected steamed or fried rice. The place is clean (100% rating) and quiet and has about 6 tables but some order to take out. The... More

Been coming here for years....nothing much has changed over that time but the food is still really yummy, and the staff is so wonderful. Be sure you realize that they accept ONLY cash--no credit or debit cards. I especially love their soups. Wednesdays and Saturdays they have Vietnamese specials and the line is often out the door at lunchtime. Support... More

This is a Durham/Duke institution. I have been going here for +20 years. The decor, the menu and the smiles haven't changed. Make sure to come in on Weds and Saturdays (I think!) for traditional Vietnamese dishes.

Can't believe I haven't reviewed Bahn's before now. Cuisine is primarily Chinese and Vietnamese. I've been (mostly) lunching here for years and years, because it's good, a good deal, freshly prepared (when very busy there may be a slightly uncomfortable delay), and the small family staff are very personable. The full offering of Vietnamese specialties is only offered Wednesday and... More

food is good but owner is surly and we had to wait hours for our order-no apology. Even though food is good I refuse to go back.

Get it only 3 stars as it certainly isn't a gourmet place but food was better than you'd expect for a casual bar

Anytime I have cash and hungry for rice, I order the Chicken with broccoli sate with fried rice. It is delish. Fresh veggies, tasty sauce = can't go wrong!
