“Best soup ever”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Hands down one of, if not the best pumpkin soups ever. Chunky and flavorful,without the need for salt nor pepper. Had the salmon sandwich, tuna bun and pretty well brewed Lavazza coffee. Nice ambiance if not a little too perfect. Would return again.

“Niniq not as nice as it sounds”
Reviewed 22 January 2013 via mobile

Been frequenting for quite a while until today it made me change my mind. The waiter recommended Food Platter..there's very little chicken meat coated inside big chunks of chicken skin! Could only find a decent piece among half a dozen pieces of battered skin! When commented on it the waiter had the cheek to say 'it's like that' n coupled with the poor service..well I might as well go elsewhere. The bread's ok but not the cakes. Environment's small n cramped. Attending staff's not as friendly n smiley..not as accommodating.

“Great bakery restaurant”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

Niniq makes absolutely beautiful cakes and bread, but its not just a bakery. Their menu offers a good range of Western and Asian dishes. If you're travelling with a fussy eater, this is a good place to come – you can still order really nice Malaysian, Indonesian, Taiwanese food and your fussy friend will be happy with their menu options too. Also, I recommend their iced chocolate. You could really taste the fresh milk and creamy ice cream.

“Cozy Restaurant”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

despite the surrounding location is not conducive as the restaurant itself, Niniq provides great bakery items and good Indonesian cuisine. The price may be is not up market side but definitely it’s not a cheap place for lunch or dinner either. The restaurant atmosphere is perfect for small group gathering or 2-3 people relaxing time over great bread and coffee.

I went here for a business lunch. Food was fresh and tasty. Coffee was not brilliant but OK. Great place to grab a bite if you are in JB for work.
