If you have the time ...

Best ribs I have ever eaten. Shame about the appalling, slow service by complete amateurs. Even with no-one in the place they STILL take forever. If you have time to spare then OK. Otherwise avoid.

We braved the xmas shopping in bath today "29-11-14" it was packed. We were in need of a coffee and bite to eat. We saw the sign for bonghy-bo and transended the stairs to find a small courtyard. We ordered what I have to say is one of the most flavoursome coffee iv tasted in a while. I had a... More

We have known Bonghy Bo's a while but we never fail to enjoy it. Their speciality noodles are great especially at £5 along with Ribs and other Asian food Very good Wine at £4.30 for a 175 is also a steal. Don't go for a large choice of food but what Katherine offers is lovely as is the service. Inside... More

Spending the day in Bath, we saw Bonghy - Bo and thought it looked nice so gave it a try for lunch. Very friendly, helpful staff, lovely layout and good food. The only thing that ruined it was the owner? constantly haranguing the staff in full view and hearing of everyone for what seemed like very minor indiscretions. Felt tempted... More

After asking many people on the streets of Bath for "a nice lunch and a glass of wine" someone finally pointed us in the direction of Bonghy-Bo. Saved! A beautiful patio and indoor seating, friendly staff and a great menu. We had 2 kids in our party and the owner was nothing but hospitable, offering to be flexible with meal... More

Eat lunch here about once a month - always enjoy it. The food doesn't change much (over twenty years) but always very good.

For a pit stop or longer lunch break this is a restaurant with excellent food and service .It is perfectly placed in the centre of the high end shopping district of Bath .It is excellent value and I particularly recommend the noodles ,thai prawn or chicken sauces . This isn't somewhere with a remote owner .There is hands on management... More

Bonghy-Bo is our destination of choice if looking for a light lunch when shopping in Bath. It is perhaps a little more cafe than restaurant in decor and furnishing but I have always found the staff to be exceptionally friendly and the food, whilst basic and a little bit limited in choice, is reliably delicious. Unlike some Bath city centre... More

We went for a quick lunch yesterday while in Bath for a weekend and thought it looked quite nice from outside and reasonably well priced. However, we ordered a round of sandwiches and when they arrived we found the bread was riddled with mould. It wasn't the odd bit here and there that could easily be missed, it was all... More

I've been coming here for years and so I thought it was about time that I gave Bonghy Bo some recognition! It's a great place to enjoy a quiet coffee, meet with friends, grab a bite to eat and even study! I always go for noodles when I come here and they are always delicious. The coffee is good and...
