Great place, amazing food. More then amazing. The food takes time because it’s so fresh but so worth it. Staff moves way fast and are very busy, made us a little anxious seeing as every time they power walk past you it causes a huge draft and the floor makes your chair feel like it’s dipping. But we look forward to sampling more of the menu.

We made a reservation prior to going to an event on the Stampede grounds giving ourselves plenty of time. From time of order to delivery of our food it took an hour. This made our timeline very tight. Other people in the restaurant were taking theirs "to go" as soon as it arrived at their table in order to make the event on time. The hamburger certainly was not "the best in the city" and when it finally arrived was not the burger that my son ordered but something with a completely different stuffing. Since we were short on time he ate it anyway. The server did not seem too concerned. The potato wedges were burned on the outside and raw on the inside and had no flavour. My sliders arrived 5 minutes after the other food hit the table. This was not the experience we expected from the reviews and we would not return.

The stuffed burgers were very tasty (and messy to eat) as usual. (Friend still dreams of their award-winning burger with the donut buns making it onto their regular menu.) We both had different burgers with apples in it but wished they were diced or somehow spread out more in the burger. The Caesar salad dressing was a bit runny & the fries weren't crisp. Normally the servers are very knowledgeable but this new guy didn't know what the feature burger was, didn't ask if we wanted drinks or dessert. There used to be featured appetizers but forgot to ask since didn't see it posted. He seemed a bit overwhelmed though it wasn't that busy on the long weekend. Also, he seemed in a rush to finish his shift. After he left, the server who took over was very friendly & didn't mind us staying around to chat. We did miss seeing the list of past stuffed burgers on the wall (as it showed the creative combinations we might see again). Ample parking is always a plus!

Great food and service. A nice little gem selling comfort food. I had a classic grilled cheese with tomato and bacon with a half order of poutine. If was a generous meal and very tasty. Would definitely recommend.

Service was slow - understandable as there were only two servers but it took a long time to get our food and water. Tough since we were on a crunch to get to our event. Great location and if there’s an event at the saddle dome, they’ll let you park for free

Great service and delicious food.
Also got to park in the parking lot for the night if we showed our receipt on the dash which was a great perk also.
Will definitely be back and recommend others to check them out.
Thank you!

Naina's was great! Darryl was our server and he was amazing. He really made the whole experience so much fun. He was attentive, funny, friendly and just all-around awesome. I will definitely be back and I hope to have him as my server again!

A little disappointing to see the bar addition. We liked it as a burger joint alone. Not sure what the reasoning was (perhaps to appeal to the crowds following Saddledome events), but I think it takes away from the previous ambience.

Family of 5. Older kids. Our kids have never been so we took them to experience the poutine and stuffed burger.
Food was fantastic as usual. Restaurant was quiet as we went during a somewhat off-peak time. Servers are welcoming and attentive.
Portions were huge and everyone was stuffed. Had to take a lot of food to-go. Well worth the visit and will return again for sure.

Had the eggs Benedict poutine but it was very salty and a bit thick. I heard the stuffed burgers are awesome so maybe next time I will try that.

Delicious stuffed burgers! I don’t think they put all of the stuffings I selected in my burger but it was absolutely delicious nonetheless. Burgers/poutine were huge and very filling. Service was adequate. Will be back!

We were one of only 3 tables in Naina's, total number of customer being 7 not include my wife and I, and still waited 65 minutes for our two burgers. When the burgers came out they were missing ingredients, and the poutine was cold (squeaky cheese couldn't melt and gravy was solidifying). Also, our server never brought us our drinks and at one point even took our water glass to fill it but didn't bring it back. All the while our server kept telling us that the "skip-the-dishes" orders were really hammering the kitchen, as if us knowing that "dine-in" customers were of less priority than "Skip-the-Dishes" customers would somehow make us feel better about receiving such poor service.

Overall, I would not go back to Naina's.

Went for dinner before a Flames game. This is walking distance to the Saddledome and they offer free parking with your receipt. Great burgers and Poutine!

Stuffed Burger combos very filling, selected and created our own. Fries were excellent. Saved a couple dollars on the early special til 6 PM. Free parking in the back extended to late if you're going to a hockey game, or concert.

When I saw stuffed burger I didn’t expect the patty to be stuffed! That was great! Fries were not great but the rest was awesome!
