Very close to NYU, therefore often crowded with students. Price may seem a little high, but big portion makes up for it. I always order the Phó, particularly Saigon Shack Phó. Rice dishes are also really good. The meat Bahn-mi is delicious. Wait times can...More

The Pho was delicious...really hearty. It is a cash only place and it is very tiny so you do have to share tables. The veggie spring rolls were delicious. Only drawback is that they do push you out. The minute your check comes and you...More

Nice lunch option-the $5 bahn mi sandwich was one of the best deals in the city. Didn't eat the pho but saw plenty being delivered to tables around us and it looked great-huge portions for the price. Quick friendly service!

I got shrimp vermicelli- the dish was pretty good, the sauce for the shrimps is really bringing out the flavors. The service is really good, but the place is cash only.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
