Nina spent nearly two decades with the Wong family restaurant, Rainbow Chinese Restaurant and Bar, located on Eat Street in Minneapolis. In 2005 she opened East River Market which evolved into ChinDian Café, a full scale restaurant located in northeast Minneapolis.

As her menu grew, customers started asking how they could take Nina’s signature sauces and syrups to use at home, including her famous Ginger Syrup, Lemon Syrup, Black Stir Fry Sauce, White Stir Fry Sauce, Egg roll Sauce, Sweet and Sour Sauce and Dumpling Sauce. Nina now offers a full line of sauces and syrups that make it easy to create the flavors of ChinDian Café at home.


Chin Dian Café, combining the diverse flavors of Vietnam, China & India into a singular delectable experience. Using only the finest locally produced, organic free-range meat & vegetables to create a warm and satiating experience.

Chin Dian Cafe is located at 1500 East Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55414. Open Monday through Saturday, call us at 612-676-1818.
