Good Vietnamese restaurant. Casual atmosphere with a very nice selection of pho, sandwiches and noodle soups. Good choice when you are near Chelsea Market and a few blocks from Highline.

This is a nice, casual Vietnamese restaurant with lots of choices. I really liked the Tom Cuon (grilled prawns in rice paper) appetizer. I also had on multiple occasions the Bun Co Ba (crispy spring rolls, grilled shrimp and pork over rice vermicelli salad). I would recommend this place and would return again!

This small restaurant in the Chelsea district serves very good ethnic food. Our group of eight was easily accommodated and we all enjoyed our meals. Good selection and promptly prepared and served. They were out of Vietnamese beer when we visited ("large wedding party the night before") , but had more on order.

Tonight we went to Co Ba restaurant, two blocks around the corner from the Joyce Theater. This narrow Vietnamese restaurant was a real surprise with great food and simple decor and competent staff. The red brick walls with bamboo hats on one wall and Vietnamese Photo prints on the other felt like a NY bar with Asian flavor. Prior to... More

Long narrow room, exposed brick one side, decorated with antique blowups from Vietnam and rows of straw "coolie hats". We shared some small plates to get a range of flavours and textures, which we received absolutely. We can recommend the goi du du, rau nuong, banh duc man, and ca bam. The ribs, suon nong, weren't very lemongrassy or anything... More

Love this quiet restaurant, the nice service and the delicious food for a cheap price. Definitely worth to try a Vietnamese Sandwich!

I will keep it brief as this is really all this resturant deserves! Arriving for dinner and shortly after being seated, we were informed by the manage that the kitchen was closing and that we should order everything together and make it quick! Upon receiving our complete order together, we were then asked to pay our bill before we ate!... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our post matinee meal here this weekend. A short walk from the theaters, on a quiet street sits this small but attractive dining room. Typical Vietnamese dishes done with a modern flair. We had several small plates as well as the vegetarian clay pot. We especially loved the green papaya salad which came recommended... More

This is one of our favorite places in the city (Hells Kitchen location). The staff is super friendly and the food is excellent. We all started with lots of appetizers followed by our own meals. The food is fresh and the setting very cozy and pleasant.

On the recommendation of a Vietnamese friend, we had dinner at Co Ba 53 (located in Hell's Kitchen). We really enjoyed it! The appetizers were probably the best part, especially the squid! Super yummy! The drinks were unique and extremely delicious, especially on a warm summer's evening. Service was pretty fast, and servers were always available to refill water glasses,... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
