You must try their sandwiches...the pate sandwich is simply tasty as well as the shrimp. Wonderful soups and desserts...truly authentic; their portions are generous, too. Friendly staff, nice bar.

The Pho was pretty good, definitely well balanced, although the flavors could have been uniformly stronger. A bit more beef would be good , as well. Chicken curry was good, very brothy with perfectly cooked vegitables and chicken. The ambience is great, and is a welcome addition to the neighborhood!

I've been ordering from Bao for more than a month, and they've consistently impressed -- from Bao's friendly people that pick up the phone, to the food's prompt delivery. My favorites are the tasty spring rolls, very satisfying Beef Stew Noodle Soup (they sure give you a lot of broth in those plastic containers) and salt & pepper squid. Definitely give Bao a try, especially like me, as someone who grew tired of the usual diners of Gramercy.

Bao Noodles (and probably its sister restaurant) is the only place I know that serves grilled shrimp as a meat filling for banh mi. Good food at good prices.

Bao Noodles is one of the few available places in Manhattan that make the banh mi sandwich. A crispy, flakey French baguette filled with minced meat, pate, mayo, pickled cucumber, carrots, parskley, and a slice of mystery meat. It's delicious! The only problem is that the baguette was not chewey, or flakey like Nicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches. It was still fresh, but just a different more sourdough quality. Though, the filling was so delicious that it doesn't matter. Overall, a really fine Banh Mi Vietnamese Sandwich. I highly recommend their Banh Mi.

We've been to number of Vietnamese restaurants in the city, and usually have had good luck. Decided to try this place , since we were in the neighborhood. The food was Ok, but the service was lousy. Disinterested waiters, slow delivery, and lackadasical service made the experience really subpar. This could be a good place if they ever get their act together.

The food is good, although I've had better and cheaper pho at the Vietnamese restaurants in Chinatown. I had a couple of nice meals here and then I made the mistake of coming here for lunch one day. It's a totally different atmosphere. A waitress threw the menus on the table before we even sat down. Other tables didn't seem to be getting much service either, so we walked out.
