I only buy vegetarian food in this restaurant, so can't say anything about the meats or fish. The glass noodles with vegetables, which are actually made from soybeans are excellent. Always a joy to eat them. I would recommend a few more veggies though. The Green Papaya Salad is out of this world. As far as I know this is the only restaurant that offers it without any fish in it. The rice wrapped glass noodles are also excellent. Add to the fun the Vietnamese coffee with ice, mango or coconut with tapioca desert. Also, the people who work here are a delight.

I can only rave about the dishes I ate from this restaurant, since I don't eat meat, they're all non-meat dishes. The green papaya salad is exquisite. I highly recommend it. The glass noodle dish with vegetables is also excellent. I always order it with extra vegetables, and it's a very tasty, not too saucy, not too salty side dish. Their vegetable dumplings are OK, another dish I tried is the vegetarian noodle dish with tofu. This is also OK quality. Some other nice things are the Vietnamese coffee and some of the deserts.

I should have read the reviews before ordering. The good review for the banh mi is more than two years old. Got the pork dumpling soup and lemon chicken banh mi. The soup was ok - big dumplings with little filling, but a flavorful broth. The banh mi was incredibly poor. Again, not much between the bread, and the chicken that was there was dry and flavorless. Almost no sauce, yet half the bread was soaking wet. I can only guess that it came from the vegetables. By the time I got to the last 4 bites of the sandwich, it was completely soaked - not that there was anything between the bread. It really stuns me that they would charge $8 for something of such low quality. They clearly don't care if people come back. Won't return.

I am a bubble tea girl. I have tried bubble tea from many places and I was really excited when I found out that there was a place near work that served it. Too my disappointment, Boi Noodles has the worst bubble tea ever! It's all premade so the tapioca balls are way too soft. Also, all of their drinks have WAY too much sugar in them. So don't waste your money buying the bubble teas here!

I got design your own lunch box special. I just can't compare the food to the vietnamese restaurants in Chinatown or Queens. It's too americanized version of Vietnamese food and we all know Americanized anything is worse. I would not recommend going to this place.

I stop by just to see what they were offering . For the last 5 years every time in NY I stop to eat at Boi Restaurant 44 Street and 2 Av. This time was not surprised all in the menu is good, my wife ordered Foo which was just delicious. I just would like to be close so I'd be able to order anytime. I am telling all friends when in NY stop by and try this delicious food...Anybody knows if still the same owners.

I went to Boi Noodles today for lunch and got the beef pho. I'm not a pho expert but I think it's pretty good. The service was very quick and the people were nice. I'll definitely go back again.
