Wait staff quite slow and unaware but pleasant enough once engaged. Rice dishes contained healthy portions of meat with an average amount of veg. Disappointing overcooked dry rice in one dish but perhaps just an oversight. Flavours are lovely and authentic with strong spices and heat. Would return to try other salad and noodle dishes. Tip for owners: A teapot might work better for the table than small individual cups of very strong tea
The spring rolls were exceptional, the noodles of excellent quality and the cocktails imaginative. This was just what we were hoping for - nothing extravagant, just good honest food. The service usually good, it was attentive, but discreet and not intrusive. We will be gong back.
It was our third time at Coba and we had the same experience every time. The soups are great, but never proper hot. For a spicy, hearty soup- which you sit on for 15-20 min as the portions are huge - it is essential for me. The service is friendly but the radio style music was a bit disturbing. It's a small venue, so they should be more careful with the type ofmusic and volume.. Still, it's a great place, would reccomend it!
Superb place. Great food - especially the lamb and prawn toast - and great service
The restaurant was fine, most of the food was fine (veggie spring rolls were great!!) and the service was good, but it wasn’t anything outstanding. I don’t regret going but I won’t go again.
The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Excellent vegetarian options as well as options for meat eaters.
Celebrated my wife's birthday here, the food was delicious as always - this is one of our favourite restaurants in London, and very convenient to get to from Kings Cross.
This is a very special restaurant ... not only do the provide excellent food but the staff are always friendly and welcoming. We have probably been to Coba several times last few years never been disappointed.
Fantastic local Vietnamese restaurant with imaginative modern twists and a lovely vibe. Friendly staff to and always happy to give you doggy bags for the inevitable over order
Nice simple menu, tasty food and good value. Bottled lager a little expensive even though it’s authentic imported. The prawn toasts are legendary! Will be back !
delicious, tasty drinks, v. nice and accommodating staff.
Fabulous food and great service. The lamb cutlets were delicious!
I was impressed with the service, and we were both impressed with the food... a relatively small menu..
so everything was very good!
Food was average, but liked the ambience of the place and drinks. Will not go back as food wasn't good enough.
The best vietnamese restaurant I tried in London. Great atmosphere (I love the seats facing the street!), stunning food, exceptional cocktails and very big portions! I visited for dinner and everything was perfect, from the welcoming approach of staff, to food and service. Portions were so big that we did not manage to finish everything and I asked for take-away! I would strongly recommend this restaurant and I personally cannot wait to be back!
Delicious food, fantastic service, friendly staff, loved the whole experience!
I love this place. Always look forward to coming back to sample more of the incredible food. Excellent cocktails, starters to die for and the best Pho in London. Tried the lemongrass and coconut curry this time round and no surprises it was superb. I always leave CoBa with a massively full belly as a very satisfied regular patron. Great to see the restaurant is getting so much love from the neighbourhood nowadays...tucked away in a quieter location than kings cross but once you go you will certainly go back.
Unfortunately but as usual, CoBa had run out of Prawn Toast! This happens time after time and is a shame since this is one of their famous dishes. Not impressed to have this happen yet again. The waitress told us that they had run out by 7.30! Not great.
The Waitress forgot my order of a cocktail too.
Nice vibe and generally a very good place to eat.
I love tasty and fresh food, and Coba did not disappoint. Exceptionally tasty food, and delish cocktails
Booked standard table but was put on a high table together with other people. There were plenty of standard tables available which stayed empty throughout the meal. Bad service and condescending waiters. Food not bad but relatively average.
Won’t be back; plenty of better options for similar or better price
Very nice surprise, well worth the walk from kings cross
Exceptional food. A stylish hidden gem in a tucked away corner north of Kings Cross - this place is well worth a walk!! The starters (particularly prawn toast and spring rolls) are some of the best in London and the main dishes - all generous portions and SO fresh were full of flavour and perfectly cooked. Great atmosphere and fabulous cocktails to boot. 10/10 in every way.
My second time here and the food was even better than I remember. The Coba's sling is still my favourite cocktail ever!!! so yummyyy
Excellent food and just round the corner from us! Good value for money as well.
A few hits mixed with some near-misses in a very noisy place make this a great place for a quick bite but don't hang around. It was a 1 in 3 place. 1 cocktail great, 1 so-so and 1 a waste of calories. Food was better at 1 great, 2 ok and 2 so-so dishes while the staff was lovely but a bit random in their attentiveness.
YUM!! Fabulous hidden gem this one. Super fresh and delicious food, lovely staff and cool venue. The starters are amazing.
Excellent food, and amazing cocktails. We will definitely be back!
Fantastic cocktails, delicious authentic food and superb service - will definitely be returning
Great restaurant. Good food. Good cocktails. Friendly servers.
All let down by a location, which is pretty remote by London standards - 15 minutes walk from Kings Cross and very limited parking.
As always incredible food and lovely staff. Every time we go to this restaurant we have special times. Lots of wonderful memories!!
This was the perfect place to have a pre-theatre meal before heading to the Pleasance Theatre around the corner. Flavoursome, fresh-tasting food from a well chosen menu in a hip setting - if industrial filament-bulb lighting, stripped wood and earthenware crockery are your thing, you will love CoBa! Highlights were the summer rolls and the BBQ Beef in Betel leaf. Cocktails were also good quality, nicely presented and not too sugary (which is my usual gripe). Good, friendly service too. A winner.
Super lecker :) Nettes Personal ;) Einziges Manko waren die unbequemen Bänke.
The place has fantastic lighting which makes the ambience really enjoyable. The food is also good but not exceptional. There is only one option for wine by the glass but it’s a pretty good one. The service is friendly and quick. I would definitely go back, it was a good night out.
Love this place! Best Pho outside Vietnam! Fresh flavours, great menu, cool interior, friendly staff and well priced!
Ranks among my favourite restaurants in London!
Quite enjoyed the food and cocktails. It's casual, quite a small menu and the restaurant is in a bit of an odd spot near Kings Cross / Islington - not much else around.
Best Vietnamese in London. Summer rolls are a must. Actually all the starters are a must. This place does EXCELLENT food.
Delightful and excellent food. 5 of us eating and sampled a lot of items. Great value.
A slim menu but fantastic-tasting food. Service was efficient and friendly. Decor is industrial-chic - not exactly cosy but the young clientele will have liked that. And it's beside the point - the Australian-Vietnamese food is what you come for and the food is completely delicious.
Lovely restaurant. Walk-in seats available, which is always good to see. Short menu but everything we tried was delicious. Wines reasonable price and very good cocktails!
