Good Vegetarian Options
Lebanese-style taverna in the same space as the legendary Greek restaurant Orestes. Nuba unfolds over multiple levels through small, low-ceilinged nooks, and up and down numerous staircases. Healthy, delicious Mediterranean food served with panache.

We arrived a 6:45 and seated upstairs where it was not crowded. Service was very attentive and the food was fabulous. Would definitely return.

Great food and ambiance - very cozy vibe! However, the service was quite slow and the servers were not the most friendly throughout the experience.

It was our first time dining at Nuba Kitsilano, we usually go to the Gastown Nuba. As usual, the food was absolutely excellent. The service was attentive without being intrusive. This dining spot comes highly recommended!

The food was amazing! Unfortunately, the kitchen computers were down and therefore our mains arrived at the table at different times. Not a big deal but weird! The staff were lovely and doing their best with this situation.

Food was great but service was awful. Waitress was not very talkative and it felt like we were an inconvenience to her.The kitchen closed for the night and our waitress didn’t even tell us until we tried to order dessert. When we paid the bill, she slammed the credit card copy in the table and stomped off, didn’t even say “thank you”.

Almost everything about our dinner was excellent! The music was much too monotonously thumpy though. A couple notches quieter with some more variety would have been much more pleasant.

Delicious food as always. As a vegetarian, this is one of my favourite places to eat. The feast is a generous meal for two, and you get to taste many different wonderful dishes. Will keep coming back.

Sophie was an excellent waitress — very communicative and had a great sense of humor. The food was fantastic save some slightly over cooked lamb chop and chicken kebab. Regardless, the flavors really delivered. We’ll be back!

Exceptional service. Unfortunately we happened to choose a night where the temperatures were soaring and the restaurant has no air con. Despite that we had lovely service. Accidentally ordered a vegetarian share feast that was delicious but we would have preferred meat. Will definitely go back on a cooler night and make sure we order correctly.

It has gotten a bit more expensive since Covid, but the food was fabulous and there was quite a bit as far as portions go. We shared a rose bottle and a big feast for two and there was ample food, around 160$ tax and tip for two. Babaganoush and hummus, the best I have ever had as well as their famous roasted cauliflower.

The food was fantastic. But the music was much too loud for good dinner conversation. We asked to have it turned down but were told that wasn't possible. We will not come back, only do take away.

Slow service. Didn’t really feel like a service resto.

Also the pita bread was stale garbage. Put love into your product.

A trip to Nuba is always wonderful! Absolutely love the food and the service. A little sad to see the new wine list as I miss the old one, but that is my only complaint.

Le grand fest for 2 is a wonderful way to sample so many of the delicious flavours at Nuba. Treat yourself to the vegan ice cream and date cookies. Yum!
