Let's face it: Banh's is a non-descript hole-in-the-wall Chinese-Vietnamese eatery with just a few tables. It is mainly a carry-out business. And the regular menu choices -- the stuff that sits under the heat lamps -- can be hit-or-miss. But the daily specials -- which...More

Eating at Banh's is about three things: love, community and family. A family run local favorite for many years, Ms. Banh's humble establishment caters to scrappy students and the intelligentsia of Durham. Everyone who knows, knows that Wednesday evening and Saturdays are Banh's days. This...More

Dined here with my boyfriend in July 2017. Small, cute, Vietnamese restaurant with good food at the right price and quick service! We were happy to find this perfect lunch spot. We got the vegetarian plate and vegetable pho. Highly recommend trying both!

Eaten there many times over the years. Can not beat the Vietnamese on Wed & Sat. Usually plan my visits around those days.

I love the vegetarian plate at Banh's on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and the food is great other days as well. They have excellent vegetarian options and it's inexpensive. It's cash only.

Fast, cheap, and always good. This isn't a fancy place, but it's genuine and delicious. No, they don't have bubble tea or other trendy asian quirks, but they have been consistently good for 30 years.

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...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.
