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!

My husband and I visited Naina’s Kitchen this evening (Saturday) and we had a delicious meal. It was our first visit to this location. (We had been to their old location a number of times.) The restaurant is a good size and parking is available at the back of the restaurant as well as overflow parking is available nearby. We started off with the Pretzel Knots appetizer and it was delicious. The pretzel knots are made in house and they are very good. This appetizer is served with two dipping sauces. For the main course we each chose a stuffed burger with a side of fries. The burgers were juicy and delicious and the fries were very tasty. I asked for a side of their Curry mayo for my fries and it was very good. We also found that the service at this restaurant was excellent. We were greeted right away and our server Lili provided us with excellent service. Thank you Lili! She was very pleasant and she was attentive to our needs. We were also visited by the manager(?) a couple of times and he asked how we were doing. We would highly recommend this restaurant and we certainly plan on returning again sometime.

Second time we have been to this restaurant. Both times we had an absolute great meal and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. If you are wanting a great burger, or other comfort food, in a very friendly setting, this is the place for you.

Great place for any time we’re going to the Saddledome. We don’t eat all day before and sometimes we share a stuffed burger. Free parking while at the dome is an added bonus/value/savings.

Amazing! Had the award winning burger from burger battle. So delicious. The waitress went above and beyond, she even offered to help keep my baby entertained so I could wrap both hands around the beautiful burger. We'll definitely be back to try the rest of the menu, not just stuffed burgers.

Been here four times,the food was good once out of those four times. Two of the times it was mediocre and the last time it was really not good at all. Servers were friendly and attentive but the last time we waited over 45 minutes for our food (after we had ordered) and there was one table before us.

Amazing burgers!! Love how close it is to the stampede grounds - however the website said it was free parking if you were attending an event at the grounds but they tried to charge us $20 with a $10 voucher to eat. The parking attendant was nice and let us go without paying when we showed him the website. Also it took WAY too long to get one burger - over an hour. They were way understaffed considering they only had 4 tables of guests. I would only go back if I preordered. If we wouldn’t have gone early, we would have missed the beginning of our event.

One of the best burgers I've had in Calgary. Service was slow as they only had one server working the entire place. This seems typical as when we went there last time it was the same.

We went with high expectations, and were excited to try the Dill Pickle Poutine. What came out vs. What instagram shows is completely different. It was hard to eat. The stuffed burgers have such potential, but everyone found them to be pretty dry. I’m willing to try it again, but our experience wasn’t very good.

We have eaten here a few times and have been pleased. But tonight was a birthday celebration and it was absolutely terrible. The service was painfully slow. We were five adults and a toddler and it was two hour turnover. Took forever to get drinks. Took such a long time to get food. And two people sat 10minutes waiting for their plates after everyone else was served. Food was mediocre and on the cool side. I doubt we would come back.

While their burgers are tasty & legendary, it is also wise to leave room for their house made ice cream. We got the last of their chocolate peanut butter ice cream with a dollop of whipping cream. The dessert had big chunks of chocolate & you can definitely taste the peanut butter.

P.S. Their grilled cheese sandwiches are also very good & it allows room for ice cream!
