Kim Chau is a grocery business not an eatery. You will find no seating, no washroom, and no nice way of presenting the sandwich making process. Maybe one day they will make it dine-in friendly.

Kim Chau is family owned, and has fresh ingredients made at the deli. The bread is unique to this business and different from other Banh Mi restaurants. Delicious and toasted.
