“Upscale Dining on Main Street Shelby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Ni Fen is a nice treat. The food is presented well, great service and very friendly. Owner, Jeanette is accommodating and makes guest feel welcome. Must tries: Fried oyster salad, pot stickers and a fabulous banana ice cream dessert with bourbon liqueur that you must see to appreciate.

“Excellent Food & Service in a Quaint Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

My Wife and myself ate here on 2 separate locations when we were staying in the area last week. The food & service was excellent. It is a quaint little Bistro that will surprise you with the Quality of the Food. The Appetizers are excellent and the Main Courses are large portions and not over priced for the size that you receive. Highly recommend eating here if you are in the area.

“Great find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We were staying at the Inn of the Patriots in nearby Grover and were urged to come here for dinner. What a delight! We really didn't expect to find much (it was about a 15-20 min. drive) but the menu was excellent and the restaurant has a nice bistro atmosphere . Good food. Good service. Highly recommend.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

While the masses flock to the insipid chain restaurants up and down Highway 74, a few blocks away in the heart of Shelby is a completely unexpected gem! Gourmet food, kind and attentive wait staff, bistro atmosphere with white table clothes, and reasonable prices. For a few dollars more than the chain restaurants, why not sample the best? Try their mussels, a warm goat cheese salad, and their banana Ni Fen desert.
