“Amazing food”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

I have just returned from a gathering at Nobanno, and I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and the atmosphere. Food was possibly one of the best I've had in a while and quite a unique mix of flavours and spices. Will definitely bring my family next time.

“Great food and fantastic service”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Great news that Nobanno is back and it has the same great food and serviced that they had pre-earthquake. Sometimes you read reviews and think I must have got them on a bad night but I have been coming to Nobanno for a couple of year pre-quake and have now found them down in Ferrymead and every time I have been it has been superb. If you like Indian food but find it a bit lacking in fresh veggies then come here. The food is very fresh and has veggies making up the sauce. The food is only half the great dinning experience the excellent service makes up the other difference from a normal Indian restaurant and yes this is Bangladesh food not Indian. Christopher and the team go out of the way to make you feel very welcome and even though for many years I lived in Nelson he would always remember me and my family when I visit. Now I live in Christchurch I expect to be a very frequent customer. Keep up the good work!

“Indian cuisine with a difference!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Food here is from Bangladesh so not Indian but similar. They don't use chilli but the food is still very spicy and very delicious. We had a lovely evening here with friends and our host was charming, informative and welcoming - if somewhat eccentric. I had the goat curry which had a hint of aniseed - divine!
The breads and rice were perfectly cooked. A word of warning, the rice is not included with the main.

The choice in music was unusual and left room for improvement. A mix of Boney M and Spice Girls?
Would have been 5 stars with some more suitable music!

Will definitely return next time we are in Christchurch.

“Nobanno”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Fantastic to see it up and running again after the quakes and with the same lovely food. Servings are large (oh well you can always take left overs home te he) Very different from other restaurants as the flavours are fresh, unique and delightful. Very attentive staff. Would be a fantastic place to go with a large group of people so that you get a chance to taste more dishes :)
