Temporarily Closed, Bida Manda Owner Champions his Competitors

By Brent Woodcox

With his restaurants, Bida Manda and Brewery Bhavana, temporarily closed because of a gas leak, owner Vansana Nolinthe took to Facebook to do a surprising thing: encourage his patrons to visit his competitors for dinner. This is just a small part of how the man known as "Van" has conducted himself as a business owner of our city but he deserves recognition for his generous spirit and the way he champions our Raleigh community.
