Nice place, really good dishes. Tasty local food with nice flavours. Nicest food we eat in Vietnam. We have eaten Fresh rolls, Nem lui, noodle with beef, and dessert : steamed banana cake with tapioca and coconut cream.

Really great vibe. Great food. The appetizers were great we had the 10 piece rice things with crab meat they were delicious. I got the main bun bo dish with crab meat , it was ok, but the vegetable pho was on point. Excellent stop, especially considering the rest of Hue is pretty much a terrible experience.

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!

Went for dinner - had the shrimp curry! It was so delicious! Went for lunch the next day - the banana flower salad with shrimp and pork was also amazing! Tried the banana, tapioca and coconut cream pie, was nice, liked the texture. Staff are very friendly. Good service. Had to force myself not to go back to Nina's for... More

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.
