“Fantastic Service”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I did not expect to get 5 star service when we went here. I was pleasantly surprised that that is what we recieved! The food is much more subtle and refined than indian, I really enjoyed our visit and would not hesitate to return again.

“A unique experience we will be repeating!”
Reviewed February 17, 2011

We had checked out restaurants on trip advisor before we left for our holiday to Christchurch & found Nobanno with great reviews so we had to try it.
We are so glad we did.
The staff were great explaining the whole story behind the cuisine, that they are Bangladeshi & not Indian as many people think, the different way they flavour the food & then the waiter went through the specials.
I had the Badam Beef which was melt in your mouth, so tasty (they are right about the difference to Indian) & my partner had the Palong Chingri (a prawn curry dish with herbs & spinach). we also had garlic naan bread which my partner used to mop up all his sauce at the end of his meal.
Normally we love indian food as we really like our spices however we are now converted as this was 2 of the best curries we have EVER tasted.
See you next time we are in Christchurch!

“SUPREME Not to be missed”
Reviewed February 11, 2011

Unique Indian, mild in spice the curry of Lamb, pumpkin and mustard seed was enjoyed by those who love all Indian food and those who are timid to spice. All of their dishes are mild but so mindfully flavoured and well prepared you wont miss the heat. We had some first timers in our group and this was a real treat for all. A week later we are still reminiscing about Nobanno and it's still the leader of three weeks of a culinary tour of NZ. Wish they were on the North Island.
