“Incredibly delicious, highly flavoured Vietnamese food on a different level to the norm. Fabulous!”. “This is a lovely little restaurant with exceptional food” – and with a backstory to match: Noya Pawlyn left Vietnam at the age of seven and began cooking for her younger siblings in a refugee camp in Hong Kong while her parents went out to work. She opened her supper club/cookery school/cafe in 2017, and now it is at the forefront of the city’s food scene. “During lockdowns only, Noya & family have raised our spirits with fantastic takeaway food and it’s now a pleasure to return to her lovely restaurant & garden. Superb!”.

"Brilliant Vietnamese owned by the lady chef, Noya. Absolutely delicious food based on the owner’s home life, taught by her mum. Every time I go here, I come out with a smile. Consistently friendly and enthusiastic service contributes to a lovely experience."
