Beautiful restaurant

Stunning eatery, wonderful staff. Had the butter chicken, which was lovely. Wine was divine but very expensive, at around £45 for a bottle, however this is the norm for Dubai.

My husband and I have visited Nina's on a number of occasions over the last few years when holidaying in Dubai and each time we agree that it doesn't get any better than this restaurant. The setting of the Nina's in the Arabian Court at the One & Only is stunning. The staff, managed by Javed Khan, are outstanding in... More

Not realy a traditional Indian restaurant, but better for me. It's a mixture of indian/european/arabic/asian mixture of food served nicely. Very tasty, a bit spicy. Decoration of the restaurant is lovely and staffs are very nice. Best is to take the degustation menu for 2.

Hubby and I shared a beautiful meal at Nina from the set menu. The food was top quality - tasty, well spiced, fresh and with no trace of quality or grease. Staff were great; really helpful and friendly. Cocktails were good quality. Restaurant is set in the One & Only hotel and is definitely worth walking around the grounds after... More

We visited Nina restaurant every year for the past 4 years, sometimes more than once within our few days stay. Last year after the change of a chef and management we were a bit disappointed but returned last night for my partners birthday. Wow, the welcome was great, some of the staff remembered us from before and they were all... More

The staff were very attentive and provided great insight into what to order from the menu. Well worth getting a selection of dishes and sharing as there are some great options. Remember that this type of indian food is spicy hot not heat hot like you get in the UK...there is no Rogan Josh or Balti in sight.

We were very much looking forward to our meal at Nina having really enjoyed our visit last year and I am very pleased to say that we weren't disappointed. We ordered the 'Experience for Two' set menu and the presentation of the food along with the tastes were truly fantastic. They certainly don't skimp on the quantity of food and... More

The attitude of the team at the restaurant could have made this a perfect evening, but it seemed like they did not care if we were there or not. The food was ok. The only reason to return... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
