Nina's heavenly delights is slightly above average. The formula is familiar and the storyline is predictable.
Nina's Heavenly Delights shines through because it is a lesbian movie that is not just about that, ie being lesbian. The cooking competition is a whole story of it's own that would hold most people's attention

The love scenes appeared natural and if the two leads are not lesbians, they made a good job of it

I personally enjoyed Nina's heavenly delights and will definitely watch it again
