[The owners] have something special they have brought to the table: an Asian sub shop called Banh Mi Bistro… Every dish absolutely screamed freshness, without a limp veggie in sight… Pork cold cuts and pâté were presented in the most enjoyable baguette I have had in some time… Rest assured, I won’t be craving a Jimmy John’s fix in the foreseeable future — not with this gem right on my way to work!
This little hidden gem should be added to your must eat list! Banh Mi Bistro is a quick, easy, inexpensive and absolutely delicious any time of day. They have all kinds of Vietnamese food and drinks to try… The pork pot stickers […] are amazing. I don’t know what they do to them that makes them so special, but seriously, you have got to give them a try. The [Shaken Beef banh mi] sandwich is quite a large portion… and the flavor profile is off the chart. I think that no matter what you eat here, you’ll be pretty happy about it, and I think you’ll be thanking us for the recommendation!
[Banh Mi Bistro] in West Phoenix is where it’s at for an affordable Vietnamese sandwich. [It] has many affordable lunch options, whether you are feeling a little on the light side and grab a salad, or need something a little more substantial like a banh mi. There really isn’t any way to go wrong at this place. We can’t wait to go back…
The smell of the chicken, pickled carrots and jalapeño all mingled together… The first bite was a combination of textures, temperatures and flavors. The cucumber and jalapeño were cold and crunchy. The chicken was warm and perfectly spiced. The baguette, simply put, should be the standard for all bread from now on. It was dense and airy at the same time… I was pleased and so were my taste buds.
My sandwich [was] generously packed with juicy seasoned moist chicken, daikon radish carrot salad, fresh cilantro, spicy jalapeños, a flavorful magical sauce of some kind and house made aioli… This sandwich was forking delicious and tasty.
Banh mi? It’s a Vietnamese take on French sandwiches, and let me tell you, [Banh Mi Bistro] knock it out of the park… This restaurant kills it. I’ve tried most of the items on the menu, [and] nothing beats the BMB Special (grilled pork with pâté with pickled daikon and carrots with TWO fries eggs)! … Wash it all down with their famed cafe sua da (Vietnamese iced coffee). Super friendly and helpful staff…
I’m very happy to see Banh Mi Bistro try to educate the valley about banh mi sandwiches and Vietnamese cuisine. The [banh mi]bread was extra flaky and crunchy the way it should be while the cilantro and pickled vegetables brought a soothing and aromatic bite! The service and staff seemed very genuine and helpful educating their patrons along with welcoming back regular customers. Overall A+!
Finally some traditional Vietnamese dishes prepared fresh and with authentic ingredients and for a damn good price! … If you’re looking for that new spot to feed your tastebud’s desires for authentic flavors, head over to Banh Mi Bistro and join the bandwagon.
