Time Out says

Pho, banh mi and other Vietnamese mainstays in a heritage-listed Pyrmont hole in the wall

Simple but sumptuous lunchtime offerings are the order of the day in Pyrmont, where the office crowd only ever seems to increase, and the faithful Obunmee does not disappoint. Named after the pronunciation of the Vietnamese word for bread (Ổ Bánh mì), the quaint shop, shoehorned into one of the heritage sandstone terraces on Harris Street, has been open since 2014. The banh mi offerings are uniquely varied, ranging from the traditional pork roll to twists like the Veggies Delight – a mix of stir-fried vegetables with salad and a fried vegetarian spring roll. But the pick of the bunch for a hearty lunch is the chicken schnitzel banh mi, a crumbed, fried chicken breast served on a crunchy-crusted toasted baguette, crammed full of thick cucumber slices and grated carrot, and topped off with a tantalizing herb and chilli mayo.
