we do halal, y'all!!!
our webpage sucks. our food game is tight.

Simply Banh Mi

sandwiches you have to get down for... literally.  we're downstairs.

open tue-sun 11am - 7pm

welcome to SIMPLYBANHMI!  DC's best vietnamese food with admittedly DC's crappiest website. there's nothing fancy up in here. we're a brother (john) and sister (diana) duo... "duo'ing" the best we can to bring our mother's recipes to the masses!   we deal in good eats, not so much in the interwebs... but the dang thing works

when we first opened shop we were a small, ten seater in a tiny basement with a "loveable" staff, surprisingly good banh mi, super reasonable pricing, and obsessive attention to service. today we occupy the main floor with lots of room for 22 guests.  our menu has grown to include pho, rice, noodle and salad bowls. the staff are still the same down to earth kids that started the shop. wait, did we mention we have vegan, gluten free, and halal options? we do. what?! true story bro.

bread is a limited commodity here at simplybanhmi. once it's gone, it's gone for the day. if you are coming in for sandwiches, call ahead. we'll be glad to set aside some baguettes for you! 

do us a solid.  come in, eat, relax, enjoy and help us pay da bills.

hours: tuesday - sunday 11am - 7pm 

closed: monday... cause we're only human.

tl;dr brother sister owned shop with the best banhmi, pho, rice, noodle, salad options that are halal, vegan, gluten free. their website sucks. closed mondays.
