    The lunch special is great - mini beef pho and the bahn mi of your choice! The steak or tumeric fish bahn mi are my faves.

    The pho here is very good, if pricier than Chinatown. The broth is very fragrant and fresh tasting, and I doubt they use MSG (if you're afraid of that sort of thing). Add beef balls to your pho, FTW.

    Delicious Pho! Very flavorful (and on the sweeter side). The spring rolls were really good too. They have interesting appetizers that are worth a try.

    Great weekend brunch deal with unlmtd drinks! Waiter was super nice and made sure drinks were always at hand. Enjoyed the combo B pho and traditional bahn mi. Wasn't too packed either. I'd recommend.

    Don't miss the banh uot thit nuong: It's a jumble of succulent grilled pork, bouncy Vietnamese ham, cucumbers, fried shallots, herbs, and cool, thick rice noodles. Read more

    The pho that I tried here is pretty big and good. I would say it is better then Chinatown but it is a bit pricey and their lunch ends at 2pm which is kinda silly. It should be cheaper during lunch...

    Quite possibly the best Banh Mi in Chelsea – definitely try the pork belly sandwich, and add a side of spring rolls or salad tron.

    The $21.95 weekend brunch menu with unlimited drinks is a great deal... lychee bellinis, mimosas, bloody mary's, vodka kumquat limeade... mmm...

    Fresh and good, but not as funky & flavorful as banh mi or pho served up in Asian neighborhoods/countries. Seems toned down for the uptown Chelsea crowd.

    Co Ba aims to serve the same kind of homey Vietnamese cooking offered at neighborhood stalls, though this version is prettified and refined. Read more

    You must try: Wok-seared lemon grass curry (tapas) and for entree, caramelized Pork Belly braised in coconut juice - hmm hmm good!

    The sandwich with the grilled chicken was delicious! And the Co Ba champagne. And the veggie summer roll (that was 4th on the appetizer menu). EAT HERE!

    The pho bo here is ok. Noodles were good, broth lacked depth, beef was overcooked. Service was friendly and environment was comfortable. I'll try Banh Mi next time.

    The grilled aubergine (egg plant), okra and shiitake mushrooms are the perfect starts to any meal.

    Ever tried eating a pork chop with chop sticks? Was definitely tasty...but frustrating to eat.

    Spring rolls and traditional banh mi are delicious, trendy and spendy but worth it in the area. They deliver!

    No matter what they say... pho is not pronounced "foh" it is pronounced "fuh" with a question accent mark
