Welcome to Noya's Kitchen!
I was proud to open my own Vietnamese cafe in central Bath in december 2017. its a beautiful, homely, grade II listed building, and I'm so excited to welcome you TO 7 St James's Parade. See you there!
My roots in Vietnamese food run deep. I started cooking from a very early age. As eldest daughter I had to. My first experience was shopping for food for my 4 siblings and making us all rice in a Hong Kong refugee camp, whilst my parents went out to work. We’d recently left Vietnam in a boat and I was 7 years old.
Growing up in the UK, Vietnamese food was our link to the culture we left behind, and I’ve learned to love sharing my favourite dishes with my friends and customers!
Vietnamese food is all about balance. It’s simple but so fresh, as we use a lot of different varieties of fresh herbs. They are not just for garnish but play a major part in Vietnamese food. Dishes are aromatic, with layers of flavour, the amount of spice controlled to individual taste with use of chilli and dipping fish sauce. Have a look at my video for more…
At Noya’s Kitchen I make every dish to order with fresh ingredients so I keep the menu small enough to manage and broad enough to tingle most tastebuds! There’s always something different to try. Each meal sitting, or event is a bit different:
Lunches run Tuesday to Saturday 12-3pm
Pho Wednesday celebrates Vietnam’s most famous dish every Wednesday 6-9pm
Supper Club is my 5-course evening menu, announced on the night. Fri/Sat from 7pm
I also run my Cooking Classes fortnightly on Mondays 6-9pm
I hope to welcome you soon!
"Thank you, I sampled your delicious food for the first time at supper club last week. no wonder people rave about you - it was truly delicious, stunning food."
