We kept coming back.

We dined every night at Ninas cafe. Very nice place with friendly service. We loved the food, and we could find vietnamese food for our children, which hasn't been easy. It is very hard to find. You have to go down a little alley to find it.

After the rave reviews on TA I thought I would give this place a try. I was wrong to do that - place is completely over rated. I love Asian food and it takes a lot to say that I didn't enjoy a meal in Vietnam. But the food was very bland - ordered morning glory with garlic, stir fried... More

The menu is pretty big, which is a bit of a warning sign but the food we ordered tasted fine and came out reasonably quickly, albeit they got the main dish wrong (too hungry to send it back). Prices are ok, not ridiculous, not cheap. We had Spring rolls, stewed aubergine, squid and ginger, steamed rice and a Bok choy... More

Waitress spoke reasonable English, a little hard to understand at times but was very friendly. Restaurant was a little out of the town but had a pleasant atmosphere. Vietnamese coffee was the best I had so far in the country. The food was a little greasy and flavourless, it didn't really live up to reviews.

Tucked away in a quiet lane. Good food, inexpensive, nice atmosphere. Patrons were mostly tourists who know a good spot!

I had been told about Nina's cafe by people I met in Hoi An. It was helpful to know that it was tucked away down an alley. Which made it easier for me to find. I just had a noodle soup and a beer and the food was very good. Only 1 other table was taken but the it was... More

We visited here as the reviews appeared to say it was worth visiting. Oh dear! The place was basic (nothing wrong with that) but the food was dire. The meals (duck and beef) were tasteless and the meat was so tough it was basically inedible. Not an experience I wish to revisit.

we enjoyed a nice evening in Nina's cafe. The quality of the food was very good and freshly made (which you do not get in all restaurants in Hue). Clearly a place to go.

It is really the best place to start your acquaintance with Vietnamese food. Lovely place, great service and truly tasty meals! Our first visit of Vietnam and we are lucky to begin with Nina's Cafe. Also great idea to have sets in menu. Especially for such novices as we are who have no idea what are they dealing with. Definitely... More
