Authentic, creative, reasonably-prices Mexican cuisine. Great margaritas, amazing chile rellenos, and bacon wrapped shrimp to die for. Go here

The original Ninfa's on Navigation still reigns as the grande dame of all Tex-Mex restaurants in Houston, TX. The food is always exceptionally well-prepared with the finest freshest northern Mexico herbs, spices, vegetables, meats, and cheeses. On my most recent visit to NonN I enjoyed...More

Great food and excellent service! Bathrooms are not my favorite but they're clean. I didn't love smelling like a taco when I left but it's been pretty standard any you're in an old school Mexican restaurant. Good salsa but not my fav :)

This high-energy restaurant offered a varied menu. We got great advice from the server for those of us with food allergies. The mixture of delicious enchiladas, tamales, and other Mexican dishes. This is a favorite location ... worth a visit.

Is it the same as it used to be- no? Are there better TexMex restaurants in Houston- yes. Should you go to the original Ninfa's- without a doubt. Nachos and Tacos al Carbon are where it's at!! Service is mediocre but the beers are cold.

I really do not know. I'd call to ask first. I didn't notice any while we waited. Good luck!

I have never seen a separate room for private parties. You should call them and inquire.
