Great food and great prices. The caramelized chicken is amazing! We also had the pork lollipops on lemongrass stalks, a must eat when visiting Hue. You will find the beat passion fruit juice, out of many places having this delish, this one was the best we have found so far.

Friends we were travelling with found this place tucked away down one of the lanes in Hue. Lovely food and friendly service at reasonable prices.

We visited here for lunch following some trip advisor research and it didn't disappoint. Some have complained it was difficult to find-it is down an alleyway but is very well signposted so we had no difficulties in finding it at all. We ate around 2.30pm and it was quite quiet-there was a table of 6 and 2 other couples in.... More

Great value and nice food. The place can be hard to find all the way back in an alley, but it's well worth the search! A Broadway variety of VN dishes, all freshly prepared and tasty. Family of five dined for 450K VDN.

We went there because of the many recommendations here but we were quite disappointed. Food is as good as on the streets and if you look in the kitchen it is basically the same standard.. so we really can't recommend the place.

I don't know but it felt like another trip advisor trap to me. Food was very average, I had Bun Bo Hue and my partner chicken with caramel sauce (also good, but not delicious, just averege). I have had better soups for less money, it was quite good, but nothing to come back for. Also the place didn't smell very... More

The food here is perfect, traditional Vietnamese food made to the highest quality. Staff are lovely and the price is very reasonable at roughly 80VD per dish. If your in Hue have at least once meal here, and you have to have the rice cakes!

My partner and I are in Hue for 3weeks and Nina's has become a regular dinner/lunch destination! Every meal we have had has been incredible and the prices are very hard to beat! Food is fresh, full of flavor and service is always quick and friendly. Definitely recommend dinning at this restaurant, you will regret it if you don't!

Clearly every traveller in Hue has read TripAdvisor and goes here so it was packed with tourists. But that didn't make the food any less of quality - it was outstanding and my partners favourite meal in Vietnam so far. Would recommend going around 20:45 (when we went) as the crowds thin down by then, even 21:00 if you like... More
