The location must be completely wrong. Went to where Google maps was directed by the app... Nope not there so walked to where it shows on the map in TripAdvisor and nope again!

This place was filled with tourists and not a single local. The banh mi didn't taste like banh mi at all and was very bland. I had to add a bunch of hot sauce to give it flavor. It was pretty much just a baguette...More

During my first couple of days in Saigon, I found it difficult to find proper Vietnamese food that I was sure was vegetarian. There's so much food around you, lovely smells and plenty of vendors encouraging you to sample their goods. It can be a...More

The name Banhmibistro, a combination of the Vietnamese word “banhmi” (means bread) and the French word “bistro” (means small restaurant), reflects the French influence of this traditional Vietnamese sandwich. Banhmibistro's owner wants to introduce this popular sandwich with a triple, but simple, concept of high quality fresh food, cleanliness and friendly service.The bread and pastries are baked fresh everyday and gourmet sandwiches are made to order. All with the special fusion taste between East and West.
