We got a set menu for 21 people and they brought 7 sets of food and it was barely enough for 10 people. On top of that, they kept pouring water in every empty glass and handed us a 1k AED bill just for water. Food is bad, small portions and rip off. Basically we paid 350 aed per person... More

We've come to nina about two times in the past the food was innovative, exciting and tasty. Our experience recently was less so. Gone are the Indian dishes with an actual twist, it's basically just North Indian cuisine not at its best. The lamb kebabs for starters were bland and overlooked. The biryani was the most bland unfragrent dish I've... More

What's the twist? It's Indian with a high end slant, no phall here, it's frogs legs tikka, which was awesome but some old favourites like byriani. Set In an okay location and only worth a visit if your staying In the hotel.

Took my wife and son here for our first abroad family holiday, I came to this place once and to this day it's still the best indian food I've ever had. The spice journey way unforgettable. I'll never forget the time I came to this place but honestly it's amazing and I hope to return in the near future.

The atmosphere is charming, the food tasty and the service excellent. This is a very fine choice for good Indian food in Dubai. Every dish we had was well prepared and tasty.

We went to this restaurant twice whilst staying at the hotel. The Tandoori Sea bass was amazing as was the tandoori chicken and persian lamb stew. There was a DJ playing fantastic music who was called 'Goldhand'. Nina's is definitely worth a visit.

My wife and I ate at Ninas on Sunday evening, and enjoyed a lovely meal and a very enjoyable experience. My wife was given a red rose by the wonderful lady manager, to celebrate International Women's Day. We were returning guests from our visit to Dubai last October, when we also dined here.

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.
