I NEVER write reviews but after reading the reviews for this place I feel it is my responsibility as a food lover as well as Vietnamese to express my opinion.
This place has got to the be the worst Vietnamese cafe/deli I've ever eaten, wait...2nd place, the top honor really goes to Lee's Sandwiches.
Maybe because there are so few Vietnamese restaurants in midtown and so people are forced to lower their standard or something, but people totally overrate this restaurant. It's pure crap. Sure it's cheap, but all Vietnamese delis are cheap. Their soup sucks, their sandwiches suck, their service sucks although the latter will always suck in any Vietnamese delis.
If you really want Vietnamese food in this area then I guess you're limited to your choices. If you just want a good Vietnamese sandwich, go to Don's Cafe on Bellaire in China town. Best ever. As for the Pho, the only restaurant that's good is the Pacific restaurant/Thai Binh Duong on Bellaire accross from Hong Kong 4. Don't go to Pho Saigon please...or Tau Bay for that matter.
