6 of us ate at Ning’s last night, and it was all delicious! We got a variety of appetizers (calamari, summer rolls), curries, rice, and noodle dishes. They do allow you to bring your own beer.

Ning's always provides a great meal at a reasonable price. The staff are very sweet. We've been here many times, and really like the pineapple curries.

Ning's is a very small place, sort of cafe size, very informal and the opposite of corporate. Mostly people don't even book. I'd be surprised if they run to gift certificates. But you could contact the owner directly to see... More
