We went to Nina's after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. It's tucked away down a back street but locals directed us. The cafe is cute inside, decorated with lanterns. It isn't an upmarket restaurant so don't expect plush decor. I ordered the Set Menu 3, which consisted of four courses for around £5 and each course was delicious. I had... More

The fish in claypot here was delicious. One of the best I've had in Vietnam and I've had a fair few. Nice location, friendly staff, and good value for money. Recommended.

After reading several great reviews we maybe had too high expectations. There's nothing wrong with the cafe but there are so many great options nearby that we were a bit underwhelmed. Some of the food was good, other dishes were bland. Prices were about average for the area. Just average all round really.

We stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant and it did not disappoint. The fish in clay pot was delicious and everything was reasonably priced! Also, the staff were incredibly friendly. Definitel go here if you travel through Hue.

Went to Nina's twice whilst visiting Hue. Food very good with a good selection . Service excellent and price also very good. If Nina is there she is an excellent host and always smiling. If you get a chance ask for their chilli jam it's very good. If you like it she will sell you some. They have a board... More

First things Ninas isn't easy to find. It's necessary to take a passageway on the right of the hotel and then turn right again. Price wise it was really cheap at less than £4 for a drink, vegetable spring rolls, tofu and noodles and veg. However having selected Nina's on the basis of the tripadvisor reviews I was really disappointed.... More

I was looking forward to going here after reading the reviews but overall i was not that impressed with the food. We had the fresh spring rolls to start, the vegetables were cooked inside. They were ok but not the best we have had. We both ordered the curry, vegetarian and chicken, it was ok but nothing spectacular and the... More

Decided to try it based on the high TA ranking, but found it very average. PROs: Very fast & tasty. CONs: No greetings, no smiles. Rather small portion. Quite hard to find. Price a bit higher than expected (veg dish 2 - 3$, meat dish around 4 - 5$).

This cute little restaurant/cafe was really worth the night. It's not very expensive, for good quality food. The servers are very nice and smile a lot.

We intended never to go to the same restaurant twice but that all changed once we'd been to Nina's. It's a bit hard to find - down a couple of alleys - but is well worth the search. Yummy!!!! The staff are extremely friendly and try to speak in your language in order to make you feel special.
