New favourite restaurant! The ambience is romantic and the food was incredible. I love that they have vegan options.
Very covid conscious. Felt very safe eating there. Amazing service and food!
I really enjoyed my Najibs special! The server a young Irish lady was professional and attentive.
I absolutely love this location! Broadway. I come back and recommend always!
Not the greatest experience, a bit uncomfortable. Waiter seemed a bit uninterested with a bit of eyerolls, but the new waitress training with manager were very nice.
The Mezze dishes were served within 10 minutes of ordering which surprised me and my friend.
The waitress was lovely, the music was great, the food was fantastic.
Nuba is always a good dinner out. The staff are helpful and attentive and the food is always excellent. Good distancing and safety happening.
Great service. Nice food. The menu could be extended with some moreArab /Middle Eastern dishes.
Loved our visit as we always have over the years and will return FOR SURE!
Bravo to all the staff, so courteous, organized and efficient.
Dinner was DELICIOUS!!
Great food and the portions are big, cozy atmosphere, the service is excellent!
So many issues. Believe waiter was under influence of something. One of four meals was incorrect. Salmon dish was sent back due to being undercooked. Next piece that came had same issue. Overall very slow service and would not put high on list of restaurants to go back to. Vegan ice cream and cookies was excellent though! Stay safe.
Delicious food, great atmosphere, great service!
I love Nuba, but this time we went and our server was too busy for us. I think they may have been short staffed, but we were without water for a very long time.
Lunchtime at Nuba was lovely, the tables were well physically distanced so it felt comfortable and safe. The staff were very attentive and friendly. There was a great playlist which provided a nice atmosphere for an afternoon visit. Delicious food. I would highly recommend Nuba!
A very serious problem: The wait staff did not wear their masks correctly. The mask must cover the nose as well as the mouth. As diners we were seated but the wait staff was standing. This meant that all exhalations through the exposed nose were in a perfect position to reach us, and we may have been infected. Remember that some people may be asymptomatic but may still spread the virus. A MASK IS NOT AN ACCESSORY. Because of this, we have decided not to return to Nuba until or unless this problem is corrected.
The food is really good but the price is too expensive for the quantities Compare to Nuba mount pleasant. Will probably avoid that one next time was ok but disappointed
Very tasty menu items. Everything is good so don't hesitate to try something new.
the cauliflower was delicious
but the portion of homous with the lunch
platter was not enough
Good but ultimately mediocre food. We had the large platter which gave us a taste of everything. The baba ghanouj was very good, nice and smokey. The cauliflower with tahini was overcooked and there was very little tahini. The spicy prawns were good.
Everything was great. We were looking forward to the lamb chops in the platter section but it wasn’t in the menu. Hopefully they will put it back! Otherwise the food was delicious as usual. My favorite was the potato and hummus.
Food was great
Went here for my 4 year wedding anniversary during Covid with the wife and I. The budget I had in mind was $100 for drinks, appetizer, and meals along with Vegan options for the wife. I was under budget with everything included which is a win. Only 60-70 bucks which included tip.
The social distancing measures were taken very seriously which gave me ease of mind. The food and service was excellent. I would return here for sure on another big occasion.
The only thing I would suggest is that the restaurant change the horrible carpeted old school looking fabric design on the wall where I was sitting. Just my opinion. Other than that, excellent experience.
Great meal at Nuba. Nuba is one of our goto restaurants, the food is always excellent and the service as well.
Nice venue to catch up with friends, good food, good service. Great neighbourhood spot.
Good food, vibrant atmosphere, quick service and personable staff.
The service was horrible! the host said they were full because we didn’t have a reservation. I went on open table booked a table and was able to get in... The service was awful, I won’t be back!
Excellent food, appropriately attentive service. It was a busy night and there was mild confusion with orders but everything was quickly rectified.
Great food and service. Shazam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My second time back to this restaurant and location. Food was ok... nothing earthshattering. I remember it was better the first time. Chicken portion was good, but the accompanying vegetables was sparse. The shrimp appetizer was very good.
Nuba is one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. I always get La Feast, shared with whoever I'm with. This was my first time at the Kitsilano location, and it has the best ambiance. My friend is celiac and was able to eat with no worries of gluten contamination. The only thing off was the service wasn't as good as Gastown, and they brought all of our food out at the same time as opposed to appetizers first as they usually would.
So lovely. Great atmosphere and sharing plates so you can enjoy more than one dish. Would go back!
Fantastic all around. Only drawback was they asked us to leave at 10pm on a Saturday night because they were closing.
Like the share plates at Nuba but we booked in advance for a family birthday and weren’t advised a wedding was taking place. Extremely loud, literally could not hear our own conversation, had to point at the menu. Food came to table fairly quickly but was not hot. This also could have been related to the wedding party. No consideration given to other guests that were trying to have their own celebration. Should have shut the place down for private party or at very least notified us when reservation was made
The food and our server were both very good, however there was a lady trying to rush us out at the end that wasn’t cool. Also, we didn’t get our OpenTable points and had to contact customer service.
The service was good as was the food. All this was enhanced by the decor and, as odd as it may seem, knowing the hisory of the place, used to be Orestes. It was a bit noisy but that's not all that relevant, I;m old.
Not this location as the food is not the same as the other location i have been in past
My wife and I tried Nuba for the first time this weekend. We managed to get a reservation for 5:30, which is a bit early, but we had a show to see and they were all booked up anyway. We later realized they're full booking was no coincidence.
The building was gorgeous! I asked a few staff and they could only say that it was previously a Greek restaurant, however it appeared to have been a house at one time. It's not your normal open area restaurant; there are tables squeezed into all kinds of nooks and crannies. It felt as if we were in a repurposed Mediterranean Villa. The layout made it feel a bit tight which is why I put ambience at four stars, however if you're okay sitting close to those around you it was truly a beautiful building.
Now I am not a food critic so I won't be able to use all the proper terms or even remember exactly what the dishes were called, but I'll try my best. We were really excited to try the three dip appetizer with pita. There was regular hummus, carrot hummus, and beat hummus. All three were delicious. We also ordered the cauliflower even though we weren't expecting to like it. We were caught way off guard by how absolutely amazing it was!! I would recommend it very highly!
We ordered the beef brisket as our entree. The beef was melt-in-your-mouth delicious as were the vegetables and mashed potatoes.
For dessert we ordered chocolate cake and rice pudding. Both were delicious but you definitely have to have a taste for rice pudding, which I do.
The service was great, our waitress was very kind and sweet. The food came and a very timely manner, and they were quick to provide the little extras that we asked for.
As I mentioned earlier, because you're sitting close to your neighbour and it was a full house, it was a bit loud. But I would definitely not let that stop you from trying it out.
As for value two courses at $35 for the dino Vancouver 2020 deal was well worth it.
Celebrated, for the second year, our daughter’s birthday.
Our waitress was great and the food was delivered so fast. The food was delicious and we were easily able to accommodate gluten free.
