Great food and a great value. Love the pork bahn mi and the curry to-go boxes. Curry chicken is great as is the tofu.

This is the place if you're looking to get an inexpensive and delicious banh mi, or other Vietnamese dessert. Service is fast and there's no seating inside.

It is a somewhat ramshackle place, definitely unpretentious. Both the chicken and tofu sandwiches were very tasty. We had an assortment of their desserts. They were all good though the corn was my least favorite.

We were walking through Seattle China Town and my wife had mapped out this place based on researching good, cheap, banh mi sandwiches in Seattle. Well that research was spot on. Great value to quality ratio. There are eight options for the banh mi on the menu, ranging from $3.25 to $3.75. We were there about 10am and they were... More

Decided to try a new place for Banh Mi's so we stopped into Saigon Deli. First of all, the takeout food was sitting out, uncovered, all dried up. So gross! There were other pre-wrapped items that looked stale. We could see there were pre-made banh mi's sitting out, too. Ordered chicken, which was made in front of us, but the... More

No frills.... Just full of authentic foods and snacks, particularly southern snacks. Best of all is VN sandwich....various choices.....ask for extra veggies, don't forget the chili. Quiet busy little place. Parking is tight at times, though they have their own parking lot. Only take-out.

(over 50 visits by me) This very inexpensive place has my favorite bahn mi sandwiches. Many other bahn mi places in Seattle have (unfortunately) adopted the Famous Dave's approach of sugaring the buns and everything else, but this place actually offers some flavor contrasts in the flagship #1 bahn mi, grilled pork, with seasoned rice vinegar pickled daikon and carrot...
