Bang on Ferry Road on your right with the water to your left. Decent place. Not authentic Bengali cuisine but some of the stuff was not bad. The owner wil tell you that the cuisine is not Indian but then he does sell chicken tikka, lassi and naan which is certainly not from Bangladesh / Bengal. Moreover, his dishes were... More

What a treat to go to a restaurant with such attentive and friendly service! When we walked in Christopher remembered one of our party of four as a previous customer from a few years ago when they were located in the CBD! That in itself was pretty impressive but the food was also fantastic. The food isn't made with any... More

All up it was very good, food was great and the staff were very professional. The food was sensational. Me and my partner had two drinks, starter, 2mains, 2naans and two desserts all up $100 so not badly priced. Well be back....... Paul&Myrrine

From the moment we walked in the staff were attentive, welcoming us with an explanation of the difference between their food and Indian food. It made my mouth water even at that stage, and when the food came we were all blown away. We went for the specials which were exquisitly flavoured. Special features: - The different flavoured rice bowls... More

My favourite thing about Nobanno is the staff's willingness to cater for any allergies or diet preferences. The food is absolutely amazing and the service is the best I've had.

Ambience, great service, and the food was to die for, I reiterate what many of your reviewers have stated, this has got to be one of the best curries (and not a chilli in sight) that I ,and I can speak for my fellow diners, have ever had. Attention to detail unbelievable , the owner and his staff all so... More

The food was delicious, the flavours aromatic and healthy just as promised. We had gone once when they were in town, and enjoyed it. We are glad that they have now moved to Ferrymead as it is that much closer to us. The staff are incredible, so kind, accommodating and passionate about what they do.

We really enjoyed our dining experience here. The fresh subtle flavours were different to those found in Indian restaurants. The host was passionate about his food and the staff very welcoming. After a beautiful meal we were treated to a dessert on the house which was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in good food.

I have eaten a lot of curries in my time in UK and abroad but I can honestly say this was one of the best curries I have ever eaten. A wonderful selection of starters and array of rices and naan breads with the main courses. The owner was exceedingly helpful and passionate in explaining about the food and the... More
