We have eaten here many times. The place is VERY small- 2 tables and a few counter seats so we normally get the sandwiches and a drink to go then walk to a park to eat. The sandwiches are very tasty and incredibly filling. The rolls are truly excellent- I guess because Vietnam was a French colony, they take their... More

No, not the Moody Blues album, but rather the Banh Mi sandwiches at this teeny restaurant near the convention center. I don't normally eat tofu, especially in a sandwich, but it was mid afternoon and I wanted something light. So based on other reviews, I had the lemongrass tofu banh mi and the hot tea. Both were great. The sandwich... More

Holly Lemongrass tofu sandwich....get in my mouth! This was a real deal sandwich to explore your taste buds. I just needed a quick bite of lunch when I got to my hotel so I ran over here and was extremely happy with the nice sized sandwich that I received. Lots of yummy looking options and friendly service.

Out of bus from NYC at 1pm, we're all hungry. QT was at the corner next to Greyhound station. Vietnamese sandwich? Never had before. Why not give it a try. The shop is small but the atmosphere is cheerful. The two ladies worked there greet every customer and smile always. As vegetarians, we ordered #8 sandwich, tofu w/Mushrooms & Onion;... More

I support small business (SBA) and family business. Q.T. Vietnamese Sandwich is the best place for a tasty meal at anytime of the day. I travel to Philadelphia a couple days a week for business. I usually pass through Chinatown. When I have time to sit, or if I am in a hurry, I can always count on Annie Ha,... More

Best Bahn Mi in Philly! Been going here for years and it never disappoints can't go wrong with a #1 or #2. Summer rolls are good but not as good as the sammy.

I have a hard time finding an authentic banh mi these days and have a go-to spot in Chinatown in NYC. But Q.T. did not disappoint. I typically stick with the original sandwich (with the sliced pork and cha lua) and it made for a yummy quick lunch before my bus back to NY. Love the owners as well -... More

Best banh mi sandwich I've ever eaten! The bread is perfect and the people who own and operate this friendly place make a stop here SO worth a visit! Great sandwich and wonderful service!

While visiting Philadephia for a conference, I found this place on Yelp in an attempt to avoid the lunchtime crowds at Reading Terminal Market. To say that this place is a no-frills establishment would be an understatement. It's a tiny shop with minimal seating. Don't let the appearance deter you, though. Do yourself a favor--find an ATM (it's cash only)... More

Went here with my sister who lives in Philly and raves about bahn mi sandwiches. Such a great first bahn mi experience! I ordered (and devoured) the lemongrass tofu sandwich. I honestly think it's the best sandwich I've ever eaten. The bread was so fresh and crunchy. All the fixings were also fresh and complimented the tofu perfectly. Yum yum... More
