Situated in Jordon, this sandwich stall has been decades old. You will find most authentic vietnamese sandwich here in hong kong with most reasonable price. All the fillings(pickled carrot, vietnamese sausage etc) tasted great and are home-made in their factory few blocks away from the sandwich stall. The baguette is baked warm and crispy yet still moist inside

If consider yourself a bahn mi connoisseur and are only willing to accept the best and most authentic version of the sandwich, you might have mixed feelings about Tim Kee. However, if you're just looking for a very affordable and delicious sandwich, you truly can't go wrong here. The shop is a bit hard to find and very easy to... More

Have you been to Vietname? Did you try Bahn mi in Hanoi? Then don't even consider going here, it is such a disappointment!! The bread was old, the sandwich full of carrot and duck liver,the taste boring! None of that deliciousness with coriander and delicious sauce, flavours coliding in your palate!! If you haven't been in Vietname maybe you will... More

Very nice - crispy baguette sandwiched with Vietnamese sausages, pâté, carrots, cucumbers and stuff. Vietnamese baguettes aren't easily found everywhere in town. However, it's slightly overpriced and the baguette was a bit too dry.

I love Banh mi sandwiches so when I read all the rave reviews for this place, I had to try it for myself. It is a small shop with only 2 stools, it caters towards takeaway. There is only one kind of banh mi with 2 sizes-small or large. I bought a small. It was ok. There wasn't a lot... More

It is the best Vietnamese sandwich in town. To me, the location isn't convenient so I don't go there often. Sandwich is made to order so the bread is hot and crispy. There's Vietnamese sausage in there and pate and apparently pork knuckle, carrot, etc. I requested the sandwich to be split in half so two of us can share... More

I consider this as the best Vietnamese baguette I ever have in Hong Kong. Can't say if it is also better than those in Vietnam as I personally prefer toasted and crispy baguette. This place is in the middle of no where and the closest subway is the Austin Station. Quality of food has been keeping up well.

My first experience with Vietnamese sandwiches. Bread is ok (not sure what they have in Vietnam, but French bread is usually better). Strange looking filling of processed meat and pickled veggies, but tases better than it looks (and sounds)

I'm a big fan of Vietnamese sandwiches so on a recent trip to Hong Kong I went out of my way to go to Tim Kee for a sandwich. I wish I could report otherwise, but our party was unanimously disappointed. The quality of the bread was nothing like a French baguette, and the filling was bland and dry. You... More

I am a vegetarian and do not like to go to places where I smell even a little of meat or fish. There are several good veggie restaurant but not around the neighboorhood where the Dorsett is located.

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
