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.

“Great team let by a charismatic leader - good food too ;-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Nina, is a lovely indian restaurant. Jimmy the manager is a great guy and knows the menu like the back of his hand - trust him to order for you based on what you like and do not like and you will not be disappointed.

There are some real treats not to be found on the menu too, so be a little bit cheeky and ask Jimmy to go off menu.

Lovely ambiance and the food is really tasty. Worth a visit, probably one of the best Indian restaurants in DXB!

Well done to the whole team, polite and truly superb hosts one and all!!!!

“Tasty culinary experience in a wonderful atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We've had another amazing culinary experience at Nina Restaurant. If you're looking for high quality and sophisticated Indian food (yet cheaper than Amal at Armani Hotel) this is the place to go! The restaurant's atmosphere is really lovely, you feel transported during the entire dinner. Service is great and food very watery! Every single dish i tried was so tasty and delicious! Try the Kulfi at the end of the dinner, it's really worth it. Of course, expect to spend a considerable amount of money for dinner here as the restaurant is loctated in one of the most expensive hotels in Dubai!

“Very strange restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This place had the most confusing menu I have ever seen... not quite tapas but not quite a full meal. The food tasted good, but it took so long to order as we didn't know what we were asking for. If you want to have an Indian meal in Dubai go to Indigo at Grosvenor House - amazing every time.
