My wife and I ate their the other evening; the meal was perfect. We arrived at 5.45, about 15 minutes after it opened for dinner and about 1/3 of tables were already taken. We had four different dishes, each was brilliant. I doubt if there...More

A long-time Chelsea favorite, the service is good and food top notch. Only thing I don't understand is why they have a B Grade from the NYC Health Dept. They seem better than that. Gives me some pause. Hope that earn an A soon.

Good food with great menu. Portions were rather big, but we see that more in NY. The location is not that big, but still a good atmosphere. Friendly staf and the pricing is not top end, good money-value

We enter the restaurant before 06:00 pm and were able to be served. The food was very delicate and could suit young teenagers. The menu offered different type of dishes. The spices were balanced. Before we finished our dinner, many consumers made their way to...More

Overall, this restaurant was pretty good but not great. My husband and I ordered crispy rolls and beef rolls for appetizers - those were both good and would recommend. For dinner we ordered a chicken dish (get the sticky rice) with lemongrass sauce and tilapia....More

A hot summer day is an excellent reason to visit this unassuming place. Very good Vietnamese specialties, good service, calm and lovely surrounding.

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
