Congratulations Christopher Palma!
Christopher Palma, owner of Nobanno Restaurant, is the April winner of a Master Builders Business Hero Award:
He was nominated by happy customer Caitlin Wiblin:
"This restaurant was reasonably new, located just off Colombo street and my mum and I would go there for lunch frequently.
The service was ALWAYS incredible. The food was amazing and affordable. Christopher always remembered us.
He would remember our order so that we eventually did not need to order at all. We would just sit down and our meal would come out in record time.
I now live in Wellington but went back to Christchurch for my 21st birthday. I had my birthday dinner at Nobanno. They had just re opened on Ferry Road. It had been 3 years since we had their food.
There was a soup that we always loved. They no longer have this on their menu but they made it for my dinner anyway and gave all 20 of my guests a free bowl.
As I walked into the restaurant Christopher instantly recognised me and commented on how much I'd grown up. The service throughout the night was wonderful and the planning of the banquet was painless.
At the end of the night, Christopher gifted me with a bottle of wine for my birthday. He also discounted the rate per-person by $10 and gave us vouchers for our next visit.
Not only is the food amazing, the personal service is incredible. This is now my family's favourite restaurant. I have never had such good service before".
