Nuba - Kitsilano
Nuba was a great place for dinner; it has very inventive (non-traditional) dips and dishes for vegan/vegetarians. I loved everything about the grand feast!
Absolutely delicious!! Will be back.
We stumbled on another branch of Nuba (there are 3 or 4 in Vancouver as of this writing). We ended up at this one because... it was available on a Friday night at 7pm. The food is delicious and mostly healthy, the prices are reasonable including drink prices. I had the salmon "fish of the day" - cooked perfectly. My buddy had the beef brisket, which he also enjoyed.
Nuba was a great choice for a quiet, healthy lunch where it was possible to have a conversation without yelling at each other. Don't hesitate!
The food was absolutely delicious, we ordered the Le Feast (Vegetarian, share platters) and it was incredible. A great sampling of different dishes. The best part however was the desserts.. do your self a favour and leave some room for one, I especially recommend the Pistachio Financier or the Yogurt Ice Cream. I can not speak to their wine/cocktail menu as I stuck to non-alcoholic beverages for the evening, but my husband really enjoyed his Lebanese coffee (which had fig brandy). The decor is beautiful, the lighting is intimate, and service was attentive without making us feel rushed. Overall a very wonderful restaurant for dinner. Its not a cheap date night but we feel it was worth the price.
Love Lebanese food
Much better options in Vancouver
This restaurant is dark and dank
Our server was uninterested
I would not go back
Great friends so s great night out
But that was in spite of the restaurant
Ambience was perfect, set in back part of restaurant, courtyard with high ceiling. Food delicious: vegan stew, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, prawns, hummus and beet dips, chicken skewers! Eleni went out of her way to make sure our table for 10 was comfortable, enjoyable and spacious! Michelle’s service was spot on as in previous reservation. Friendly, helpful, engaging, really went out of her way to ensure we all had delicious food and a great time celebrating a birthday!
Love the delicious fresh food. Fantastic vegan, vegetarian options. And the lamb dishes will please any carnivores.
Knowledgable wait staff ,friendly and the food fresh clean taste fragrant, best meal we have had in a long time. Tried new things the waitress recommended and were so pleasantly surprised. We came in from Surrey and definitely worth the drive,
weekend lunch strarts at 3pm. Brunch menue is very limited, lunch menu is not much options either. The waitress was nice enough to ask the kitchen to serve lunch for our table an hour early . The quality of the food wasn’t as good either! I got very sick! The restaurant smells a bit like raw meat.
Great place for something different than the usual fare. Great service and the food is excellent, with a nice range of beverages for whatever suits your craving.
Great fresh food prepared with healthy, wholesome ingredients. A commitment to excellence!
It was a chique, fun date place, good enegy. Would return again
We ordered a few of the cold (beet dip) and hot mezzes (minced lamb and grilled cheese) and two portions of the Le grand feast. The server was really attentive and pointed out that the initial mezzes we ordered was also included in Le grand feast so she helped recommend some other dishes. Everything we had was delicious except the chicken skewers which were dry. Although the cauliflower was tasty it was not crispy at all per the description in the menu. They also ran out of the ice cream for the chocolate quinoa cake and substituted it for whipped cream instead.
As always, food was really good. First time at the Kits location and really liked the worn decor of the inside of the restaurant. Service was excellent!
Our group thought the Lamb Hushwie was superb, the best lamb ever, and the hummus was incredibly good.
Pleasant excellent food. Parts of restaurant can be quite noisy but they accommodated our request to sit upstairs where it was quieter, even though that section wasn't open yet. I wish, though, that their music wasn't quite as loud and that the speakers weren't quite so numerous.
We did find portion sizes smaller than other visits to other locations.
The food and service were fantastic! I took my father here, and he really enjoyed it too.
Excellent food, well prepared and presented by an extremely friendly staff.
A wonderful experience for our group of 6. Great service as always.
Must try the roasted cauliflower appetizer. It is amazing! We will definitely go back to try something else on the menu.
Nice variety of Lebanese cuisine to order from and tasty dishes though pricey.
Service was courteous and thoughtful as it was a birthday occasion.
Atmosphere was average, it got noisy during busy period with larger groups.
Absolutely delicious food, wonderful flavours - taste, colour, texture all excellent. Fun atmosphere. Good service too.
The food was ok but nothing special. The restaurant was busy and we had booked ahead for a double birthday celebration and were stuck next to the toilets in the hallway. We were not impressed with the atmosphere, service or the food
All was good. But the price is not value for money considering volume and quality of food and compared to other similar restaurant.
The manager (Anthea) is amazing, she remembered us, brought us our favorite wine, treated us like family. The food was once again amazing, the service is impeccable. I love Nuba even more than its predecessor (Orestes)
Ordered the grand feast for three. Overpriced. Very ungenerous portions. Meats over cooked. Baba ghanouj and hummus bland. Salad soggy. Will not eat here again. Very disappointed
We had lamb kafta, chicken tawoob and lamb hushwie pita. Nice healthy light lunch. Service was slow - looks under staffed. 2 waitresses - had to wave down to order, get more water, napkins and ask for the bill. Food was fast though.
Nuba serves very pretty and versatile/interesting flavours.
Amazing food and ambience will be back for sure.
The food was fantastic, the service was perfect. This was the first time I had been there since the days of Orestes, I felt back at home. Overall a wonderful experience.
I was disappointed in the quantity of the food. Instead of giving each of us the dish we had ordered, they combined them all on one plate. I definitely didn't think I got value for money.
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback and we are sorry to hear you were disappointed with the quantity of food. However, our la feast option, the item that you order, is a sharing style item intended for a more family dinner style. we do offer individual main course which might have been more suited to your party. I can only apologize that you were not made more aware of this and hope you will give nuba another chance in the future. thanks again best the nuba team
We love Nuba, especially for sharing with a group of five. The Mezza plates are so tasty, it's hard to keep it down to a number that you can actually eat. Friendly service, interesting decor - just great.
The food here is very good. There's something for everyone. I appreciate the vegan and vegetarian options and the willingness to accommodate if someone has allergies. The service is friendly and efficient. When I booked the table, I was asked if it was for a special occasion. It was for our anniversary, and I checked this. However, I'm not sure why the question was asked. Mention wasn't made and nothing special was offered. I've been to this restaurant quite a few times and have always had a good meal. I have recommended it to others, who've appreciated the recommendation.
The food was alright. The lunch plates are good portion sizes.
The chicken and lamb were overcooked. Loved the ginger beer
Excellent service; they were friendly and helpful, which in turn created a welcoming environment. The food was great! Everyone particularly loved the shrimp appetizer.
Best falafels, always great selection of local craft beers, fabulous service and ambiance
