Noya’s Kitchen to open exciting new Vietnamese eatery in central Bath

Since 2013, a reservation at Noya Pawlyn’s pop-up Supper Clubs in Bear Flat (Noya’s Kitchen) has represented one of Bath’s hottest dining tickets, often fully booked 6 months in advance. But as of next month, we won’t have to wait quite so long to sample Noya’s vibrant, fully authentic Vietnamese menus, as she’s poised to open the doors to her very own, permanent restaurant at 7 St James’s Parade in Bath. “I’ve been looking for my own place in Bath for almost two years, and I’m so excited to have found this beautiful Grade 2 listed building,” says Noya. “My aim is to create a warm, homely, stylish space in which to welcome diners to my Supper Clubs and lunchtime sessions.”

Noya – who fled southern Vietnam as a refugee following the 1970s conflict and arrived in the UK with her family at the age of 7 – will run her 5-course, set menu Supper Clubs three evenings a week from December alongside a drop-in Lunch Club service from Monday to Saturday, which will offer seated diners a Vietnamese taster menu/small dish selection. “It’s not going to be a typical 7-day a week, menu-based restaurant as my ethos has always been to cook food that I love, while offering diners the opportunity to try something new,” she explains. “I’ll be cooking my tried and tested favourites of course, but can’t wait to get in there and start creating some exciting new dishes too.”

Bookings are being taken for the new venue already: Supper Clubs from 7pm-10.30pm Thursday-Saturday (pre-booking only), and Lunch Clubs – which can be pre-booked but are also open to walk-ins – from 11am-3pm Monday-Saturday. Meanwhile, private dining experiences are also available, and there are plans for a lunchtime takeaway in the pipeline.
