Different doesn't make it better. I had terrible tacos and my wife had lemongrass chicken. My tacos were not good at all, but my wife enjoyed her salad. Reminds me of a food truck, but has no wheels. Not an appealing interior and very cramped inside with limited seating. I won't be back.

A delicious sandwich in a cozy, off-the-beaten-track location. Employees were very friendly and the food was fresh and unique. Most sandwiches you can easily recreate at home but not a bahn mi from Bon Bahn Mi! You won't be disappointed.

Great place for lunch. Walking distance from MUSC. Everything in my salad was fresh and delicious. 5 spice beef is unique.

Tried the pork and lemongrass chicken tacos. Both were good but nothing to rave about. They were located conveniently to where we were staying so that made it convenient.

We went there for lunch and were blown away by how good everything was. Don't let the size of the place fool you. Get the Red Curry Beef sandwich and try the tea.

Ate here many times, usually to go, and have always enjoyed it. Their 5 spice pork is something I crave on a weekly basis. Adding that to their salad or tacos is a guaranteed win. They also have good iced Vietnamese cofee for a hot day. Small counter space to eat so call ahead and take it to go.

Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I went with the red curry beef on staff recommendation and it was great. Went great with their beer recommendation too! I also loved that it was right next to where I was staying. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I ate here and loved everything we ordered. I had the spiced pork sandwich and a tofu taco while my husband ordered the pate/ham sandwich, lemongrass taco, and red curry taco. We also got a Vietnamese coffee ice cream sandwich which I highly recommend! The staff were friendly and we will definitely be back on our next... More
