Vietnamese food in the downtown area?

Can anyone recommend some good Vietnamese restaurants in the downtown area? I am fine with a dive-ish, bare-bones setting, as long as the food is good!

  1. When you say downtown do you mean Wall St/Financial District or do you mean below 14th St?

          What did you like there? I found it pretty bad.

    1. i like An Choi, though mainly i just order the summer rolls and glasses of wine...

      1. I like the banh mi at Vicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches on 2nd Street between A and B.

        Pho Grand (on Grand) has the best pho I've found in Manhattan.

            Unless I can't read a sign on my own block, it's called Vicky's—the two owners had a falling out and one elected to continued under a new name (and by peeling off a portion of the "N" on the sign), but thanks for the non-correction.

              Yes. :( I noticed them shuttered last week. I think their last day was the 25th. Very sad.

            1. Thank you all. I'm looking forward to trying these places out.
