I grew up in Houston in a big Vietnamese community. This restaurant is about as good as it gets in NYC. Pho is great and so are the apps!

Being Vietnamese, I'm always on the lookout for places to eat the usual: pho, banh mi, etc. I was shocked at how good Cha Pa's was. The pho bo was spot on, the broth tastes exactly how it should and is clear, with no powdery bits. The rice noodles were fresh and still had the tiniest snap. Everything from the iced coffee, to the spring rolls (cha gio), to the fried banana dessert were all fantastic. The chicken curry was good but outshined by other menu items. The restaurant is designed with a modern, minimalist hand, bordering on a little too stark but it's clean and bright. The portions are enough to satisfy you, but aren't the massive servings people might be used to these days. It's really about quality over quantity here, and the quality is high.
