GOOD: Meal Combos are a good deal.
BAD: The coffee included with the meal is premixed with sugar, not good for people watching their sugar.
Obanhmi “O Banh Mi” is a Vietnamese Sandwich shop on Kingsway open for about a year with other locations in Surrey and Calgary. There are many Banh Mi shops in the area, so what makes Obanhmi special and worth a visit?
Obanhmi is not a regular Mom-and-pop shop. Their menu is designed for franchising, offering Meal combos and Buy 10 Get 1 Free, not with a stamp card, but with your phone number. They also offer sides, and extras to customize your banh mi. Different from a Banh Mi Deli.
#1 Lemongrass Chicken Meal $11.50 includes Spring Rolls + Coffee 8oz
#4 Sate Beef Meal $12.00 includes Spring Rolls + Coffee 8oz
Good portion size.
Lots of fillings from end to end of the sandwich.
The baguette is soft, and less flaky than other similar Banh Mi shops.
$-$$ AFFORDABLE! Fair price. Similar to other Bani Mi shops. Over $5 sandwiches. Expect to spend over $10 for a Meal Deal and sides.
GOOD! Portion size is good. Fillings fill entire baguette. They use tasty fillings, sauce, spreads inside the sandwich.
GOOD. Welcomed when entering store. Menu explained by staff.
Overall, SATISFIED. Obanhmi has a funny looking name, but the sandwiches are easliy one of the more impressive in town. The meal combo is priced right.
CASH AND CARD.
