Nina's has a fairly good selection of British foods. You can get your Heinz beans and HP sauce here along with loads of other canned and frozen goods (Scotch pies, Sausage rolls, etc). There's also a decent selection of chocolate bars--just be careful of the...More

This restaurant is more of an extension to the grocery store. They serve a la carte as well as combination meals. Some of the items (Chola Batura, Chicken Curry) is reasonably good but several items are tired and boring. We have been there a few...More

This is "THE" place for takeout Indian food. They have either a buffet or you can order something on the menu. I've been working through the menu & so far every dish is delicious. There is also seating if you want to eat in.

Shop and takeaway your lunch or have a filling indian lunch and then shop for your groceries. I love doing it anyway. Nina's food is tasty and you get pretty much everything you need for your indian kitchen

My sister and I love this buffet restaurant. We ordered the 2 item combos with white rice and naan bread to go. There was plenty of food and it was excellent. I think anything you order there is delicious! I can't remember the names of...More

Went there to buy spices and discovered the restaurant in the back of the grocery. The food tasted like I was in India, not bland food you find in many other Indian places in Orange County. Try to eat here once a week now. There...More
