welcome to SIMPLYBANHMI! dc's best vietnamese food with admittedly dc's crappiest website. you won't find a fancy kiosk here to take your order. there's no modern industrial influence in our decor. our serving-ware isn't handcrafted and eclectic. we're not about design... obvs. 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, marketing, design or anything else "cool"... just food. just service. hopefully we can make a living at this... looking at you web visitor!
when we first opened our doors we were a small, ten seater in a tiny basement with a "lovable" 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 and the food is still top notch. prices remain super reasonable. check the yelps, playa, but just the good ones. wait, did we mention we have vegan, gluten free, and halal options? we do. what?! true story.
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 the bills so we can stop hearing criticism from our mother. just kiddin... sorta.
