    I had a lousy experience with Bahn Mi My Tho. I needed sandwiches two weekends in a row and they were never ready on time and the last straw was when I arrived they hadn't even started making them and weren't the least bit apolegetic even though I'd purchased about 1000 sandwiches in the past. They're too small an operation to handle large orders and they've changed the bread and it isn't as good as it was. When I arrived to find my order not started I called Mr. Baguette-a few miles down Valley in Rosemead. They had 100 sandwiches ready in 10 minutes. It's a large operation. I think the bread is the best in San Gabriel. They are substantially more expensive than most but I think well worth it.

      I agree with this. While I prefer the sandwiches made at Banh Mi My Tho, they just don't have the size/capability to do very large orders. Also, while they make the sandwiches for the large catering orders, all the individual orders for regular customers get held up. I'd try a Banh Mi Che Cali branch.

        My mom pre-ordered a bunch of banh mi at the Banh Mi Che Cali branch on San Gabriel and Las Tunas and the pick up went smoothly. They were just finishing up making the last few sandwiches when we got to the store and had different employees count them over to make sure they had the right number!
