Perfect for a bite if you're looking for an off the beaten track eatery where you can sample the more unheard of Vietnamese dishes. Spacious and fast service. Good prices and a variety of lush dishes.

We went because the restaurant is on guide books with a very good review but we were disappointed! Staff was not friendly and food was average for an average price with pretty small portion.

We had lunch here - spring rolls and vegetable noodles. Both were really nice and well priced. Atmosphere was nice too and it was fairly busy. Very friendlt staff. Would recommend if you have the time in Hue.

Nina's cafe is hidden in the end of a narrow street in hué but it shouldn't! The food is delicious, the staff is helpful and the environment is amazing! If you are close by, and want to run from the busy and noisy streets of hué, this is the place!

This is Vietnamese food as though it's cooked by a Polish grandmother. Everything is boiled to death and devoid of the fresh flavors and textures expected.

This restaurant tucked away down a little alley way was a tad difficult to find but what a discovery!! Every dish from Hue pancake, banana blossom salad and nina's special dish to the banana cake and coconut ice - I wanted to licked the plate of everything!! Such reasonable prices and friendly service as well!
