The highlight was the yummy naan ! So good . And the saffron rice perfection!. I would come back and buy just. Nice and clean restaurant inside. Pretty view of estuary.... More

We had difficulty finding the right eating place here!

The food is well crafted and very tasty and for those who like curry favours but don't like the heat of chillies a must. The service was friendly and informative. Downside the wine list is a bit on the short side.

Booked meal for two not aware it was a set menu. Happily the set menu was excellent and extremely good value. The food is amazing and we received first class service. The red rose was a lovely touch.

Nobanno is a lovely restaurant - highly recommended. The staff are always very attentive, taking the time to tell you about the food and philosophy of the restaurant and Bengali cuisine. Delicious, tasty food that's similar to Indian, yet distinctive and a nice change. Food was prepared with care, and the warmth of the staff makes this a memorable experience.... More

This place is a gem, attentive service. Very responsible priced lunch options! Curries all came with rice and a small salad. Ordered nahn which was crisp & lovely. We even received a birthday box of chocolates
