Nhu Lan recently added Chinese style BBQ. I've tried the duck, the bbq pork and the pork ribs. We can't get enough of the BBQ pork! At 7.00/Lb it seems like a real value. Of course the Banh Mi are great and the spring rolls...More

This is my favorite banh mi place. The banh mi here is very good. It's not located in Viet town. The price is reasonable and fast service.

The Nhu Lan Bakery on Lawrence has the most wonderful, FRESH and tasty sandwiches, made to order on their own fresh out of the oven bread. The Veggie Ginger Tofu is a mouth watering taste sensation (my personal favorite). The Lemongrass Chicken, Shredded Pork, and...More

I am obsessed with Banh Mi’s. And this place satisfies… yes satisfies my obsession. Get the Nhu Lan Special #1 sandwich! The Vietnamese style French bread is fresh and tender. The pickled carrots and daikon are just right; it’s not too sweet and not too...More
