Clean, polished and a variety if meats. But it was missing the generosity, saucyness and flavour punch that I a grest banh mi should have. There is a hole in the wall banh me in laneway just off Willis that is much more authentic.

I've been back a few times now and really getting used to the summer rolls and Banh Mi sandwiches. Keep up the good work. I salivate sometimes just at the thought of grabbing my lunch there. Weird, but nice.
