Doesn't live up to reviews on Happycow - Edit

Appearance -
Not good at all. Be warned: there is no seating in this restaurant; you need to take your food elsewhere. The one worker present was very lethargic and didn't seem interested in helping us. He couldn't explain the menu items to us very well.

Food Quality -
Sandwiches are assembled in a sort of Subway-style method. They start with a baguette, put tomatoes and lettuce on the bottom, and then put in a generous helping of Vietnamese food.
There are 6 different types of filling to choose from, my girlfriend had red curry with tofu and veggies and I had BBQ seitan. After this, the sandwich is toasted in a small toaster oven. Our baguettes were very stale and the sandwich filling was stone cold even after its brief stint in the toaster oven. The sandwich filling itself tasted alright, but not good enough to make up for the lack of temperature and the rock hard baguette. All that said, it was dirt cheap.

I'd be willing to make a return visit and give it another shot. Maybe I was just there on an off day.

Best vegan lunch in downtown Boston! - Edit

Quick meals that are delicious and mostly nutritious...with desserts to die for. It is like a sampler of My Thai with a lower price point. Service is always friendly and fast enough. Cash only, but they will run upstairs to process credit cards.

Pros: All vegan, family run.

Cons: Cash only, or you have to wait a minute for them t

Odd - Edit

This place was a little weird. We wound up going upstairs to My Thai Vegan Café first before we realized this was the place we were looking for. Its kind of divey but the food was pretty good. Has a set menu of different sandwichs to take with you. The lady behind the counter was really nice. The food was ok. Not sure I'd make another effort to go out of my way but it wasn't so bad I wouldn't go back. Owned by the people upstairs at My Thai Vegan Café.

Pros: Decent prices, Interesting choices, Easy to grab and go

Cons: No seating, Kinda messy to take with you

Best sandwich ever! - Edit

This place is amazing I had a fake meat BBQ sub with peanuts, salad and chilli and it was quite possibly the best sandwich I've ever eaten. I also had a lovely mango smoothie and some carrot cake. Very friendly staff, highly recommended.

More Amazing Thai/Vietnamese Vegan - Edit

Visiting Boston again, and we went to My Thai, but noticed Cuong's Vegan next door. Turns out it is run by the owners of My Thai, and it has to be some of the best takeout in Boston, if not anywhere. Curries, noodles, rices, fake meats, all vegan, all delicious. Have to try this one.

Pros: Delicious, Good Variety, Incredibly Reasonable Prices

Simply Delicious - Edit

As soon as I saw that this place was opening up next to My Thai Vegan Cafe, I knew I was going to have to eat here. The other day I had the perfect opportunity to do so and was not disappointed! The food was delicious (I got the red curry sandwich), and the price was unbelievable. There's no seating which is something to keep in mind if you plan on eating here - only grab food if you're on the go or headed back to work!

Fantastic food, fantastic value - Edit

We came for a quick dinner before a concert downtown. We ordered the papaya salad and the green curry sandwich. The papaya salad was huge, and the woman behind the counter made it with great care. She mixed the ingredients and sauces into the papaya shreds one by one, and the result was a refreshing salad with beautifully balanced flavors and textures.

Since we arrived relatively late, there was not enough green curry left, so she offered to give me a mix of green and red curry. This was ideal, because I was having trouble deciding between the two in the first place! The curries were both delicious, and the peanuts and hot sauce on top of the sandwich rounded it off very nicely.

In all, our feast came to a whopping total of $11.50 - an amazing value. We will definitely be coming back.

Pros: Cheap, Fast, Delicious
