We shared the platter with a yummy variety of nibbles. My favourite was the vegetarian. The three main dishes ordered - chicken, lamb and pork and beef. All individual in taste and beautifully cooked.The nann bread has no yeast - the fruit one was my pick. Dessert - omg mango volcano, melt in your mouth - you must try, so... More

We wanted to try something different and it was worth it! The first time for a long time that I didn't have to reach for the salt & pepper shakers to season my food! Not bland at all and very tasty! Will definitely go back!

The food was tasty but with a top review here I was expecting more. I have had much better curry dishes.

It is amusing that the owners assert that they serve Bengali - not Indian - food. In the UK it is the other way around ... >90% of all restaurants claiming to serve "Indian" food are in fact run by Bangladeshis, almost all from just one small town (Sylhet) in the north of Bangladesh! Amusingly the Bengali lady in Nobanno... More

How difficult it is to differ from your fellow reviewers at times! We read all the great reviews and decided to give it a try. I initially wanted to book it as a surprise for our wedding anniversary which I am now glad I did not do. Firstly: the service is very good but sometimes a bit "too much asking... More

I was so glad to see they had reopened post quake. They were one of my favourites before. I took my husband there and he just couldn't get over the flavours in the food when it is not ruined by heat. We had the meat platter to share. He had a goat curry and I the prawn curry. Both were... More

We read good reviews on trip advisor and wanted to give it a try. We have bengali food regularly and were pleasantly surprised to find one in NZ. The owner was at times a bit too eager coming up to the table every 5 mins for feedback. The service was very average. They got us the wrong dish on first... More

They are still telling people this is not an Indian restaurant which is quite obvious once you try it. We had a lamb special, one garlic and cheese naan, one fruit and nut naan, one fried prawn entree, saffron rice and mango mouselline for dessert. Nothing is chili hot spices but it is deliciously fragrantly spiced. The lamb special was... More

Really nice restaurant! Good service, good food! I had my birthday there, the staff celebrated it with me together, I even got a gift from them! Really moved, and a memorable night!
