This is the second visit to this establishment only to find once again they do not have items in stock that are noted on the Menu. Order flavoured Rooibos Ice tea only to be advised that they don't have any of the flavours in stock....Reduce your menu and carry the stock advertised. Customers around us were complaining about slow service, waiters were advising the customers that the establishment does not have sufficient crockery so they are busy washing. Witnessed two customers leave the establishment due to lack of service, manager was sitting having breakfast instead of checking up on customers, good thing about Ninos in ILanga Mall customers have many choices, never again.More

Flat white was so hot, burnt my mouth. Tasted like hot water and milk, no coffee flavour! Waitress told me that was what a flat white is, I beg to differ!

Really disappointed about the service at Nino’s. As we got seated apon arrivals our tables got cleaned, and we had the impression that we are served with care. However to our disappointment we waited 15 minutes, and never did the waiter come to take our...drink order, whilst there are 6 waiters and three tables occupied. The table next to us arrived later than us, but was served begore us. We called another waiter to place our drink order. After the drinks arrived we coupd order lunch. Just as the lunch arrives, the waitress yet again walks away, without giving us any cutlery. In the expectation that she might have collected some, we waited another 10 minutes. Then had to ask another waiter again. At this time we were only 2 tables in Nino’s. As the waither retuned she took the cutlery to the table next to us, who already had cutlery. As the informed her of their satisfaction, We had to call her. Only being one set, we had to wait again. When she retuned with the cutlery, I have asked her when is she bringing the still water I ordered with the food. She then brought tap water. I had to enquire again. Worst of all, the managet stand on the other side of the restaurant in the midle of the noisy waters, whistle they are screaming amd using Jesus’ name in vain. As we have to pay, the manager approaches the table next to us and avoid us completely. Never never again.More

We were shopping in the mall and needed Wifi access so decided to do brunch at Ninos. The young lady who waited us was gorgeous & funny & really helpful, in fact even sung me Happy Birthday, which made my day! The menu was extensive...& the food really very good, I had vegetarian & my partner chose eggs, bacon etc. You will not be disappointed and really popular with the locals.More

Disappointed, went to Ninos for early morning coffee and scones only to be advised that they had already run out of stock, what is the use having something on the menu which goes with early morning coffee when it is sold out early?

I had the chicken lunch, with avocado, corn, grains and a soft, succulent chicken fillet with a light sauce. Service was friendly and fast. Will definitely return. The restaurant is clean , airy and bright. Lovely to find something on a menu that is gluten...and lactose free, without having to ask for a meal that is both.More

Service was slow at Nino's. Coffee not great and food reasonable but nothing special. Restaurant relatively new but needs a tidy up. Messy counters, weak interior. All needs some attention!

We dashed into the ILanga Mall for a quick breakfast and were delighted with the prompt and friendly service and also delicious menu options. The food was delicious - I enjoyed a french toast stack and my friend enjoyed the eggs benedict which she claimed...were the best she has ever had. Price was good. Restaurant was clean and neat.More

The menu description definitely does not correspond with the meals received. The chef admitted to changing an item on the menu to a total different dish. I was very disappointed as I ordered the chipotle pulled chicken and received chicken strips and BBQ sauce on...a baguette. Someone from the kitchen annoyingly came to our table 3 times not accepting that the dish was wrong. He informed us that he changed the dish as other customers complained they didn't like the correct way as described in the menu. Even asking a different waitress to point out what meal I had on the menu, she could not identify it. My fiancé and I ended up sharing her tramezzini which was quite nice. Only after requesting the bill and noticing that they did not remove the item off the bill, did management arrive to kindly offer me a slice of cake instead , were at this point feeling very frustrated denied the offer and finely got here to remove the item. Will definitely not visit this establishment again.More

Visited the Illanga Mall restaurant today for the first time. Was pleasantly surprised by the quality service, price and quality of the produced used. Often the presentation of meals on the menu looks better than the real deal. Nino's hit the mark on both. Eating...out at a mall can be noisy and simply an iteration. The site is well placed and appropriate for a business meeting or business lunch where you can actually hear yourself. I am sold and consider myself a "Ninonian" :)More

On a hot day there is nothing that I crave more than an iced coffee, however Nino's in my opinion need to wake-up and smell the coffee. The service was POOR to say the least. I waited almost a full hour for a cuppacino and...2 iced coffee's. Furthermore the Iced Coffee was warm and SOUR. DisappointingMore
