Consistently delicious

Consistently delicious lunches and sometimes dinners. the menu has recently been expanded to include delicious rice bowls and a really good caulflower sandwich. I try to come here as often as I can, and so do many others. The line is always out the door.

My Catfish Salad was delish - a slightly sweet strip of fried catfish on asian slaw. Also tried a large bowl of gazpacho - loads of flavour, maybe a little bit denser than usual - the consistency of salsa. Counter service was excellent - friendly and knowledgeable.

My god. Had I known this place existed I would have made multiple visits. As it happened we were only in the area on our last day. Seemed nice. The guy who was at the counter may have been the friendliest servant we've come across in New York and the sandwich was amazing. Meat was tender and well seasoned and... More

This is a great place to grab a quick and delicious lunch while exploring the market. As always, the more delicious the sandwich, the greater the mess, but it's absolutely worth it :) good value, all things considered.

THE GOOD: Tasty sandwiches THE NOT SO GOOD: More fusion than authentic Vietnamese The sandwiches are very good here, although I was looking for a more authentic Bahn Mi sandwich, if I fancied a good sandwich I probably would come back here but not when I have a craving for an authentic Bahn Mi sandwich.

If you're not familiar with banh mi, this restaurant would probably rate 5 stars. They serve good banh mi packed with meat or whichever topping you choose. But if you're familiar with banh mi, you know that the bread should be crunchy like a baguette. Num Pang uses a soft bread similar to a hoagie roll. It was good, but... More

Doesn't look much from the outside but this delicious Cambodian street food in the heart of midtown Manhattan. Busy at lunchtimes but the service is quick and efficient and the food well worth a five minute wait. Eat in on the communal tables or take away that you can eat at nearby public seating.

Looking for lunch in NYC - Num Pang is definitely on the list! Great sandwiches and really good selection. Chicken was really good, but pulled pork and mushroom are also worth a try. If you work nearby; let's hope you know if already, if you're in the area and need lunch - GO!

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’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 neighborhood 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.
