The grocery is authentic British & Indian with many hard to find imported ingredients, curries, candies and sauces. The best part is the cafe, with great takeaway and fresh Naan.

Staying away on business can be a dull affair on your own so I decided to see what the local Indian fare was like. Coming from the UK we are spoilt for good Indian food. For $7 you get a curry, rice, a naan and some salad. It's excellent value as that's a lot of food for the cash. I... More

I cook Indian food at home and always come here for the Indian ingredients you just can't find in local groceries, I always pick up food from the restaurant when I'm here. Their vegetable pakora is amazing. This is a Indian and British store in the front and a small buffet type restaurant in the back. Don't let that deter... More

Great vegetarian options at the restaurant part. My husband and I are sad when a week goes by where we haven't gone to Nina's. The nan is always good and fresh. The vegetable korma is DELICIOUS! My only regret is that I don't have more stomachs to fill.

This grocery store has so many different items. It's fun to just wander the aisles! I also love the restaurant attached. Great for takeout!

This is a deli style carry-out or dine in place. The restaurant is towards the back of the grocery, making it a bit like a hidden treasure. I'm a big eater, so when I was first introduced to Nina's i ordered the three piece combo, I was not able to finish this. Their portions are fairly large, especially if you... More

This is a wonderful place to grab great food to go. Everything I have tried has been very good. You can also find Britsh food in the grocery. The people are very nice and you can even get a Bollywood dvd while you there!

I love Indian food. The style is a little different from what I am used to. The food is tasty and if they say hot it is hot. The Nan (Bread) is good. I had chicken vindaloo, hot, red, Sag, spinach, and another vegetable. If you haven't had eggplant, spinach, lentils or chicken from an Indian restaurant, you are in... More

So much more organized! They've added more items to the combo menu, as well as their a la carte menu and the food is amazing!

We found a coupon for Nina's in a flyer and since we are on a budget due to an extensive 3 month remodel, we were looking for inexpensive places to eat. Nina's is a British and Indian grocery store so when you walk in, you're a bit confused. But next to the cash register is a small buffet with 6-9... More
