Do you have special dietary requirements? Look no further as Nova caters for gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan options. If you have any further requests, please send us through an email and we will see if we can assist.

To celebrate your graduation evening, we have a Fujifilm Instax Mini instant camera to capture some special moments. Our staff will gladly come around and take a few snaps for you to take home and put on the fridge!

Please note that Nova requires a $10 per head deposit on each table to be paid at the time of booking. The deposit will then be taken off your total bill on the evening.
