Dinner with husband on Monday night. Friendly service. Their food full of spice n skill. Really can taste the chef(s) take time to prepare, passion to combine seasonal fruit and vegetables to make mouthful dishes. We didn't take pictures; cos we just forgot until end of the dishes. Next time will make more room for dessert

We had an amazing experience. We arrived for an early dinner at 5:30 p.m. The food was brought in quickly, and it was fresh and hot. The flavors were mouth watering and irresistible. Wish we had this in our town.

Interesting location overlooking the water at Ferrymeade. Attentive, friendly service and great food all at a reasonable price. What else do you need in a restaurant? Subtle use of fresh herbs and spices appeals.

We were very impressed with this lovely, authentic restaurant. The food was just divine, it was so fresh and tasty! The service was fantastic, all the staff we met were friendly, genuine, and knowledgeable. And very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend Nobanno, we will definitely be back.

My boyfriend and I are visiting from the states and we had passed by a couple restaurants in Christchurch - when we wandered into his, neither of us where sure we wanted to eat here. (I'm picky and don't always enjoy curry foods) he convinced us by telling us why we should dine with him. He said "this is the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our delicious meal! The flavours were great and the service was exceptional. On finding out we were on "date night" they gave us our desserts for free! Very lovely and special night! Would recommend!

Three adults and three teenagers ate here on a Friday night, went with the banquet because we wanted to try a variety of things. Excellent value. Fantastic service, really yummy food and we left feeling very full. All of us enjoyed the experience and would most definitely go again. Highly recommend .

Amazing service and cool aesthetically. But the food was a bit bland and the restaurant overheated. The food wasn't bad, I just wasn't enticed for another mouthful.

Thank Harrison T
