Nina is a colourful new-wave Indo-European dining venue. Descend the staircase and enter a vibrant, lively setting with an alluring sense of discovery. Flickering candles, curtain beads and contemporary music set the scene for an evening at Nina, the mistress of spice. The food enlivens the palate, with a strength of flavour and seductive aromas that create a journey of exploration.

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. The food was just as delicious, the... More

This was one of the restaurants we ate in during our stay at The Arabian Court in the One and Only Royal Mirage Resort on Dubai. We always like to try so called "ethnic" restaurants when we are away from the U.K. O.K., Dubai isn't India, but there are a lot of Indian people in Dubai and we wondered if... More

I first went to Nina's about 10 years ago. Very few places in Dubai manage to maintain high quality food and service. Excellent food, great service. Very well priced.

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.
