Came across this place entirely by chance. Nearly didn't go in as it looks a bit rough and ready from the outside but turned out it was a good decision to get a sandwich here. Fresh ingredients, very tasty and great value. Highly recommended.

If you love Vietnamese subs this is probably the one place you should try when you're downtown. A varied assortment of chicken, beef and pork. The place, while small and doesn't offer seating, is clean with friendly staff. Note: cash only (As of May, 2014).

I've been frequenting Thi Thi since it first opened about 20 years ago. I worked a few blocks away from the restaurant and would go there to buy my lunch at least once per week. More recently, only periodically will I make the effort to go to the original Thi Thi in the east end of town. The shop is... More

Thi Thi makes a fantastic sandwich. The owners are friendly and efficient. With only a few items to choose from on the menu, the focus here is on making genuine, fresh, and delicious vietnamese subs. My personal favorite is the chicken sate, but the beef is also quite good. The balance of meat and veggies on a toasted french baguette... More

I have eaten in the restaurant a couple of times also. The orders are taken very quickly, the food arrives promptly, and so does the bill.

Thi Thi is the original sub-sandwich food place I've known and has really been an institution in Chinatown. This place serves an authentic, fresh, and line-up worthy Vietnamese sub ever! If you want something tasty and fresh (and cheap!), go here. You'll never regret it!

When we have an hour to shop and grab a quick lunch this is my choice for a workday lunch. Thi Thi does whole wheat subs and they make them as spicy as you like. I love my spice and appreciate that they can get serious for those who like it hot.

Good tasting and fast, a healthier choice than American fast-food. You cannot go wrong with a bowl of rice and some meat such as chicken or beef thinly slices and grilled to perfection with teriyaki sauce, compared to some burger joint offering 3000 calories in one cardboard box.

This is hands down the best Vietnamese Submarine I have ever had. It keeps luring me back. The line can be slow, but the family that runs the shop is sweet, and the subs are worth any wait.
