“Nina's is one of those hidden gems”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

All the reviews will tell you the food is amazing and stupidly cheap but nina's hospitality really made it. Definitely book and go nearer the end of the evening when it's not so busy!!

“Not just a great meal....”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Whilst Nina's cafe is quite hard to find down a narrow alley in Hue it is well worth persevering and making sure you do find it! Our meal was cheap, fresh and delicious. We were travelling during the rainy season so the restaurant was pretty quiet during our visit we pretty much felt like we were sitting in the family's dining room. We got chatting to Nina and as well as arranging our motorcycle tour with Bill for the next day (which was also excellent and we would definitely recommend) Nina very helpfully gave us some great tips for visiting Ha Long Bay later in our trip which we are very grateful for. Deciding to eat at Nina's cafe was one of the best decisions we made throughout our 2.5 week trip to Vietnam. All the best for 2013 Nina!!

This is a great little place to eat - good value and a lovely atmosphere. The food is really fresh and delicious, especially their Hue specialties. The restaurant is run by a very friendly family and service is excellent. We went here on Christmas eve and they gave all the diners a little gift!

“Loved Nina's!!!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Went to Nina's for lunch and it was so good we went back for dinner. The food is very tasty. I'd recommend 'Nina's Meal' where you can make your own rolls. Westerns who are missing the taste of a simple sandwich or fries will like some things on the menu too.

The atmosphere in the restaurant is really relaxed, George Harrison and Erin Clapton were playing the background. you might even meet the family pup called Sammy. The service we got was amazing. Had a lovely chat with Nina and when it started to rain as we were leaving, she gave us an umbrella!! She's very sweet.
