Ninna: Restaurant Info 26 July,2015Check, Please! Bay Area

  • Susan

    Enjoyed our dinner on 2/11 very much. My scallops were perfect, one of my companions loved the lamb, another found his salmon well-flavored although a bit too dry. We did notice that the food arrived lukewarm; Ninna really needs to find a way to warm those plates! Surprising, when the cooking is so good.

    After watching “Check Please”, I went to Ninna with lots of excitement, but found very dissapointing. I think it is an over-rated restaurant. The owners claim this place as a “Thai-Mediterranian fusion” restaurant. I think it’s a not-so-good Thai restaurant with not much Mediterranian options. Don’t waste your money here!

  • Ninna is an outstanding jewel on Piedmont avenue. Yes, the overall theme is Thai+Med, but think of that as simply a guideline for the type of spices found in some excellent dishes. My favorite appetizer is the ravioli with curry sauce, and I never miss the fresh soup of the day. Their variation of the classic surf and turf is a fantastic kaffir lime spiced freshwater prawn over a perfectly grilled sirlion drizzled with a reduction. Remember that this is literally a mom and pop restaurant, so the service will be slow, but well worth the wait.
