First and foremost, the person taking the order was so incredibly friendly and happy - something that NEVER happens in nyc. Secondly, despite living outside of their delivery zone (i am in union square) he was more than happy to make the trek. When the food arrived (a mere 30 minutes later) the sandwiches were still toasted and warm. Everything from the service to the bahn mi and summer rolls were excellent. This should be on your must-eat list!

Must say I am personally addicted to those sandwiches... Delicious and fast bite. I find myself craving the portobello sandwich sometimes. I do wish they would have some more vegeterian options, very often they run out of mushrooms and there is no alternative for my craving...

I've eaten here a million times. Tried the sardine, pork and portobello sandwiches, and they are all delicious. Bread is crisp and fresh. Size is plenty big. They also have great coffee and limeade. The downside is occasionally its crowded and there is no place to sit. You could go to Chinatown to find another sandwich shop like this, but Nicky's is convenient to the village. All in all, highly recommended.

I was so happy when I first saw the vietnamese sandwiches place but after tasting it, I was quite dissapointed. The are charging a lot for such a small sandwich. I do not recoomamnd to anyone unless they have nowhere to go. I hope this will encourage someone to open a better one for better deal.

This is the second time i went to Nicky's and they have the best sandwiches and the staff is great. First time i walked in i saw a rugged guy at the register, but once i ordered he had the greatest attitude and very well mannered. Everyone and the food is great. I HIGHLY recommend Nicky's. And the best news the man at the counter told me was they opened one up in atlantic ave in brooklyn, which is 3 blocks from my home. I can have nicky's 7 days a week.

That spicy pork chop sandwich can't be beat. I'm from Seattle where there are probably more Vietnamese restaurants than bars, and I've had a lot of banh mi. While this sandwich is smaller (6") and more expensive ($4.50) than I'm used to, it's DAMN good. Even given this joint's higher prices than other banh mi places, it's still a great value for a meal if you're in the area. I probably wouldn't get it delivered, eat it there while the bread is still toasty and crisp.

I can't really see how he is talking about the same Nicky's. Most of the banh mi in chinatown, brooklyn (don't know about queens) pretty much taste the same. Usually the bread is lower quality than Nicky's and they are a little bigger and a little cheaper. To say that Nicky's is substandard seems to be just plain weird. They use better ingredients, especially the fresher and much better bread. Only gripe about nicky's is that, unlike some other banh mi places, $3.95 doesn't really give a dude with a hearty appetite a good meal.
