The reviews are so good that we were keen to try it whilst in Bath, especially as we were all fans of Italian food. Okay so it had a great vibe- bustling with people and lovely low romantic lighting.

    Vietnamese Stirfry

    This is a stir-fry that was cooked by my brother’s partner Toan when I went to visit him last week. He is Vietnamese/ Chinese and is used to cooking in this style.
