A charming hole in the wall, take out only Banh Mi Restaurant. This is the real deal: the two column menu on the wall has one column in Vietnamese and the other English. Super-enjoyable, fresh sandwiches that are very fairly priced. A vegetarian in our group had the veggie sandwich and said it was great. Not much more to say!

It had been some 10 years since I purchase a sub at this location. Used go often during lunch as the office was across the street . Although the owner, who also prepares the subs is older, the high quality of her subs is still the same. Ingredients seem to fresher and tastier. Need to go by more often

The sandwich itself was well done. Good bread and fresh ingredients but there was not enough meat. Wish there was more of an assortment in the cold cuts. Also missing was the classic pate. I have had better..

Yes, the lineup out the door tells you a lot. There are many spots in Calgary offering Vietnamese subs, but there are NONE quite like Banh Mi Thi Thi. And I mean that seriously. Their bread is fresh, their sate meats are delicious and the add ons like cilantro and onions are good n' fresh and it is all toasted... More

For the lineup at the door I was expecting better. I got the Sate Beef and the quality of the meat just wasn't there compared to the best banh mi I have had in other cities, it came pale and flavorless and drowning in process cheese, which is a totally unnecessary banh Mih ingredient if you ask me. I kind... More

This place has the best Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sub's) in the city. The meat is always flavorful and tender, the toppings are fresh and the service is quick and friendly. The value for lunch is excellent, no wonder it is lined up every weekday at lunch time! I am a customer for life.

They have the best vietnamese subs. Parking is hard and there is usually line ups but well worth it.
