    wanted to like it...

    I passed this place many times but never around lunch time to try it. I am a huge fan of vietnamese traditional sandwiches and have found a few good places in the city. I ordered a traditional sandwich and also a chicken spring roll, since I love spring rolls. the ingrediants in the roll were fresh, but not wrapped well, and a very very thin wrapper which was already broken. so, it was not good to dip since it broke apart immediatly. the sandwich was part good...the veggies fresh. but the meat was a mystery lunchmeat and not very tasty and I removed from sandwich, and the bread sucked. way too bready, and not very flavorful. more like a hoagie roll as opposed to a baugette. I get these sandwiches by my apartment, and its a thinner baugette, that is crispy on outside and chewy on inside, and makes a huge difference. their salads and burritos may be better...it looked fresh and different spin than a typical deli burrito-although I know not truly authentic.

    Pretty good for midtown wasteland

    The restaurant is a good option for people who work in midtown. It's not fabulous nor authentic, but it tastes good!

    great take-out and eat!

    Im a fish-eating vegetarian so passed this place many times assuming they didnt have anything i'd eat. I finally reviewed their menu and saw a tuna sandwich or wrap - EXCELLENT. No mayo but their is a sauce that is used instead. Great flavor and the amount of tuna was so much that i couldnt eat both halves at once. Great taste and i imagine for those carnivores out there the chicken, beef, or pork are equally tasty!

    An Oasis

    In a desert of good lunch places, this place truly stands out as a favorite. Both the sandwiches and lunchboxes boast really fresh ingredients, ample portions, and fantastic flavor. For under $10, you get a great lunch. Perhaps it's not authentic, but that's not necessarily what I'm seeking--it's bold and delicious, and I'm thankful it's in the area.

    Enjoyed it!

    I have never had a Vietnamese sandwich before and judging from some reviews I still haven't. I can only judge them by how I liked it and I really did. The first time I went I had the banh mi and I have since had the BBQ Pork sandwich as well. I thought the ingredients tasted very fresh and while $8 may be alot for a sandwich in mid-town it is not that crazy. And it is very filling as well. The people that work there are very pleasant and the place is very clean. All in all a nice edition to the neighborhood.

    Pretty Mediocre Food

    Look, I know we're not in Chinatown, we're midtown, so I'm not comparing Boi's sandwiches to real Vietnamese sandwiches, but instead taking them at simple face value. That said, they're not so good. The Bahn Mi sandwiches are WAY too bready. The service is way too slow. With 3 people ahead of me on line, it took 20 minutes to get my sandwich. Also, it would be helpful to have service people who spoke some English. It took several trys before the guy making the sandwich understood "no avocado." I don't think I will go back there again.

    Not bad for the area..

    The sandwiches are decent and the prices are what they are, considering this is midtown and not Chinatown. If you work in midtown and are lucky enough to have a 2 hour lunch, then better to go to Chinatown to get the real stuff. But for me, this isn't bad. This is coming from a vietnamese girl whose family owned a Vietnamese sandwich shop..
