I grew up eating Banh Mi sandwiches in Seattle and was super stoked to find a Vietnamese Cafe in Killeen while visiting. I ordered a BBQ Pork Banh Mi and promptIy bit into a large piece of jalapeño with the seeds still in tact. It blew out my taste buds and I spent a good bit of time huffing and... More

Great place for a quick, tasty, healthy lunch. I usually stop in on saturdays when i am running errands. Nice atmosphere, healthy options. Boba teas are wide selection

Not only are they filling, but the flavor this place puts out is amazing. It's family run and the staff is always super friendly.

I love banh mi and Chau's hits the spot. Tasty pork banh mi with crunchy veggies on the toasted french roll. I also love their spring rolls. The pho and boba tea are great too. The staff are friendly and make tasty food but service can be a bit slow during the lunch rush. I get there early!

Amazing, clean and friendly atmosphere! Yes the owners are Vietnamese and accents are thick but isn't that the experience you want when in search of authenticity? You have to ask for tripe as it doesn't come on the menu.. Very savory and complex Vietnamese flavors in the soup! The mango green tea is to die for! Had to get another... More

This place just narrowly edges out my favorite place Pho 9 for best Pho in Killeen (though their Springrolls and service can't match Pho 9's). The food is great, though the waitstaff don't do English so well and are a bit awkward.

Vietnamese food has been one of my favorite cuisines, so every time I go out of town, I am searching food blogs for Vietnamese restaurants and this one had great reviews. I am just providing a review, but I ate here last year while visiting for Spring Break and of course, I repeated the routine this year. The Pho is... More
