Description: 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.

“Not as good as it was”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

This is one of our regular restarants that we visit in dubai , we have always been very impressed by the choice of food and quality combined with excellent service , however we has a big disappointment this time , a very limited menu and the food took for ever to arrive , when it finally arrived it was cold , we complained to the waiter who realy was not trained to deal with the situation , it took the manager over ten minutes to Come and see us , who felt a cheeky smile would sort out the situation , we ended up leaveing the restarant hungry and very disaponted , we eat in many top restarants around the world and do appreciate that sometimes things can go wrong, when it does the sign of quality service is how the the staff sorts the issue , jimmy the manager did not deal or defuse the issue , now off our list of favourite dubai restarants ,,,

“DELICIOUS INDIAN FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

As a previous reviewer has said this is probably the best Indian meal you will ever have. The fusion of flavours was so well thought out that it was a taste experience of the utmost pleasure. My only advice would be to request a table on the ground floor level which have lamps. We were sitting upstairs with just candles and being in our fifties with diminishing eyesight we have to request a torch to read the menu! We are going back to Dubai in June and cannot wait to eat again at this amazing restaurant - head torches optional!

“A Delicious and Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Quite the best meal that we had in Dubai, original and tempting Indian food, definitely not your normal curry house, everything was marvellous and beautifully presented. We wanted to go back on Sunday night to try some of the other dishes that we were tempted by, but it was closed, so we went to the very disappointing Eau Zone instead.

“not the normal Saturday night curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is probably the best Indian meal I have ever eaten, however if you are looking for your usual English style "ruby" you will be disappointed, in fact as far as I can remember, only one dish was familiar to me.
We started with a selection of breads and pickles, the breads were warm and full of spiced flavours, whilst the pickles were fruity and delicious. The starter was for me the star of the whole meal...deep fried soft shell crab with a fresh mango salad, served with a spicy seafood broth....simply amazing.
my wife and I then had the mains of curry, although as I said not like anything I had tasted previously, they were well spiced but not such that it took the roof of your mouth off...more delicate.
If you like spiced food try this restaurant, I am sure you will not be disappointed.
