Really good

Only one bengali restaurant in NZ - worth trying it. Really good food, really tasty, not too spicy. The global atmosphere is good and mains are affordable. Tried the specials (as I usually do) and havent been disappointed !

This is the first time we have eaten at a Bengali restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised at the flavours of the dishes. Some of the dishes will be familiar to those who regularly eat at Indian restaurants but with a completely different and arguably better flavour...none of the heavy spices, rather lighter and more fragrant. The service was excellent... More

I am a Bengali, so this is a review by a person who comes from the same region as this cuisine. We were on holiday in New Zealand and dined at Nobanno last week. The food was light and subtle and very tasty. We particularly enjoyed the succulent kebabs and the chicken dishes. This is a great effort to promote... More

This place is amazing ! This is the only "Bangladeshi" restaurant in New Zealand till date and I'm proud of these guys ! Right after you sit down at a table, a waiter will be there at your service and he / she'll will tell you about the Bangladeshi cuisine and how it's different from other South-East Asian cuisines. I... More

This was the first time I have dined at Nobanno since it reopened in it's new location and everything was as I remembered- beautiful. To start, we shared the Chicken Tikka which was divine! Succulent pieces of chicken and that sauce! We then followed this with a Chicken Narikaal and the Nobo Shukoor, both were fantastic, it took a fair... More

We dined here tonight with our two teenagers. Two of us had the Pistachio Chicken with Mango sauce which was lovely. My husband had a Citrus Beef dish which he enjoyed and my daughter had a Pork dish. Service was friendly, food very good. We would done here again.

We arrived early in the dinner service (5:30ish) and were seated right away. Since we had three young children with us we placed our order for starters and our meal quickly to cut down on wait time. The server was friendly and informative, giving us a bit about the background of the restaurant and the owner, Christopher. The starters took... More

The food was excellent, and the waiters really care about the guests, making sure you are happy. Service makes you feel like you are in a much higher standard kind of restaurant while the food is not very pricy. A must go if you want to try a different kind of cuisine.

Based on the high ranking on Tripadvisor we booked here. Despite the decor, we found the maitre de very accommodating and the food was delicious. They are very passion about everyone enjoying their food. I'll be back.
