Description: 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.

“great sandwiches, friendly service under 2 bucks!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

This place is on a busy one way road so it is easy to miss. However the italian meatball sandwiches with crispy feesh bread, tuna melts and croissants are truly a blessing in an area of average viet fodder and overpriced cafes.

The food and service are great, only grumble would be location but once you have been once it is easy to find.

enjoy

“You might be tempted because of the vegetarian options, but don't do it”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

I found this cafe online for its vegetarian options and we made our way all the way out there just to try a veg banh mi... wow, what a letdown! I love fake meat and I opted for the BBQ pork option, but it was one of the blandest things I've ever had in my life. It tasted like a normal American frozen veggie burger; no sauce, no seasoning, just a few mild veggies. My husband had a sandwich which was totally lackluster, and an incredibly boring banana shake. Nothing was *bad* but nothing was particularly good, especially for the price.

The staff was nice but didn't make up for the meal. Not worth the trip, sorry!

“Delicious Banhmi”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Great restaurant And service. I ordered the banhmi BBQ pork and it was perfect. Couple that with a few heinekens and the meal was exactly what I needed. The manager came around to meet me and sat for a drink. The restaurant is a little outside of the center but not a terrible walk. Food is also very well priced. Meal was under $5

“A Safe Bet”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

If you are new to Saigon, this place offers a safe transition from Western food to Vietnamese food. The banh mi sandwiches are tasty and come in Western and international flavors like BBQ pork and chicken teriyaki and they even offer bubble tea in several flavors. The location is not the greatest, as it is outside the very center a bit on a crowded one-way street which is difficult to get to from the adjacent park unless you go to the traffic light. But if you are in the area, or walking in the park, this is a good option for a meal.
