    Food therapy

    I've been going to Bo Ky for breakfast for the past 35 years. I would usually spend more on parking than the food but it is always worth it. Their seafood noodle soup, special beef noodle soup and other dishes revitalizes the mind and soul, especially on cold winter mornings! Life would be unbearable without eating there at least once a week.

    Poor service.

    Noodles = acceptable. Duck = not bad but not for the price. If you plan to eat in, expect rude waiters throwing menus at you and acting like they can't see you while your waving at them. Food is okay but there are other restaurants two blocks away that sells the same exact thing and taste the same. Very very important. If you plan to order take out, double check your order because if you wait till you get home, it will be too late.

    Huh?

    Good food. With such cheap prices, can't expect anything much more. Really. Don't forget to confirm orders with the waiter. Would be a great Delivery.

    Forget the atmosphere, just enjoy the food

    Shared tables, loud, noisy, indifferent service -- the food makes up for all of it. I never have a problem with the waiters; I just point to the menu and say Number Whatever (whatever number the seafood rice is) and within five minutes I've got a steaming hot plate right in front of me. Absolutely delicious, and the prices are dirt cheap. It's worth a trip to Chinatown.

    Solid

    Grew up in NYC, but never went to Bo Ky until this past week. No atmosphere and weak service, but the food and prices make up for it. Definitely try the beef noodle soup, the broth is as close to comfort food as you can get.

    Nirvana for Foodies on a Budget!

    As a born and bred New Yorker, I have tried virtually every cuisine represented in ours, the greatest city on the planet. With 18,000 restaurants from which to choose, it's unusual for any of them to stand out above the rest. If you want GREAT food with NO atmosphere (you don't pay for it either), waiters almost as surly as Sammy's Romanian, and more than the guys at Hong Fat around the corner (good food, no atmosphere, indifferent service, SHARED tables enforced) on Mott Street, then Bo Ky is the only place in town for you. If there ever was a restaurant to equal the quality of the food at the prices they charge, I have not found it, and believe me, I have looked far and wide. The menu listed here does not have everything they serve, but it's close. The one thing I found tastiest of all is the sauce, orange in color, and a little spicy (I like that) that they put on several of the dishes they serve. It's so good, you could pour it onto your hand and lick it off, no distractions like meat or veggies necessary. Their duck, only 7.75 for a half, is as good as any you'll ever have, and far less than you'll find anywhere else. I have had better duck in the past, but that was at the Czech restaurant, Praha (Prague), which has long since bit the dust, and of course it was far more expensive as well, in keeping with its upper east side location. Bo Ky, while staunchly Vietnamese, is located right in the heart of Chinatown, where you might imagine it would be overshadowed by all of the great Chinese places to eat. Anytime of the day or night, any day of the week, be prepared for a short wait, because, after all, this is New York, and believe me, we KNOW where the good food is! The one-time food critic, Gael Greene and I agree, for foodies on a budget, Bo Ky is Nirvana!
