The pho is tasty and generous, and the banh mi roll is unparalleled in NYC. Although those two are great enough standard-bearers for the store, take a chance on their rice and noodle dishes. I’m a fan of the grilled pork chop over vermicelli.
They also have a full iced coffee/pearl tea counter if you’re so inclined.
It’s always a treat to catch Quynh’s hospitality if she’s there, although lately she’s been running around both stores (there is another one on Nassau st in the City). But not to worry – a brother, mom or dad is always around to make you feel welcome and cater to your palate’s desires.
Nicky’s has been our neighborhood go-to for many years and we’ve never been disappointed! But don’t listen to me, I’m just a PHO-NATIC.
