Good Vegetarian Options
Here at Nuba, we offer authentic, healthy Lebanese cuisine in harmony and rhythm with modern times. We seek out the freshest ingredients—organic and local when available—and handpick them daily. A large portion of our menu is vegan and gluten free. All meats are halal, non-medicated, and hormone free. Our original recipes have been passed down through several generations, and sincerely nurtured. While the cornerstones of the menu remain unchanged for over a century, many recipes have evolved through time and travel into a beautiful balance of traditional and contemporary cuisine.

I would have expected more spaced out tables. I understand we are providing vaccination passports, however, we are still in COVID and it did not feel comfortable to be right up against others while dining.

Food was fantastic and very flavourful.

I was excited to come back to Nuba from when I went to the Davie location last time I was in Vancouver but last night was a miss. They messed up our order, the chicken and potatoes were soooo dry, pita bread seemed like it was frozen, overall super lackluster meal. The cauliflower is the stand out and I love the baba ghanoush. It was also my birthday - and while I don’t expect anything free - at the very least say Happy Birthday?? Otherwise why ask what the occasion is. Pretty disappointed overall.

Amazing food, I will always come back.
Our main server was hardly seen and was taken over by a seemingly exasperated server. Eye rolling at neglectful server. Seemed like lots of tension which was awkward. The third server was their saving grace. Walking us through our dinner, suggesting the sauce combos, happy and professional.

Outstanding cuisine. Great and fast service. Wet would have preferred a more intimate atmosphere. Night we were there the other diners were much younger probably by 30 years. That's Not Unusual in Vancouver and particularly in Gastown.

When served water , glasses were dirty, still lipstick marks visible on 3 glasses. Obviously they have not been washed properly, may have been rinsed only if stains still on them,
Also very poor choice of wine and unenthusiastic server, she looked as if she was bored and anything she was doing was a chore
Not a place to recommend if you want a nice dinner experience

Bad service from the beginning, booked a table two months ago and we had kids and they gave one of our tables to another guest leaving us separate from kids. Not accommodating toward it at all. Server is really bad, took drinks orders from kids without adults permission. Server had no knowledge of the restaurant or food. Restaurant was out of few things. ManageR was bad as well. This Server brought us wrong wine bottle. Food is ok and would not go anymore or recommend it to anyone.

Love their chicken lunch plate!
You can choose brown rice or baked potatoes for sides, and it was super nice to be offered half and half.

Food and helpings were good. This was a return visit. Waitress was helpful and pleasant. Wish she had brought serving spoons as we were obviously sharing and table needed a wipe. She did all that we asked but didn't anticipate our needs. Very enjoyable and pleasant experience. Would totally recommend it.

The service was outstanding and the rotating tap recommendations were very refreshing. We ordered the watermelon feta salad, the falafel and the Grand Feast option. The food was quite tasty, I thought the chicken skewers and lamb chops could have been seasoned a little more. Overall great experience, vegan friendly and very refreshing food - portions are great!

Food, service and ambiance were all amazing. Nuba never disappoints. We had La Grand Feast and added the Garden Falafel. Such an abundance of flavour with every bite being an absolute delight. Can’t wait for my next visit!

This place has become one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. The food is delicious, the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a few people with dietary restrictions and they were able to provide so much information about all of the food. You can order share platters or individual meals but everything is sooo good! I would also recommend saving some room for dessert, again you won't be disappointed!

Had the most wonderful meal with my fiancé last night! Jamie was fantastic and I couldn’t have asked for a better night. It was our first time there, and it certainly won’t be our last! This location has the best ambiance, you really feel like you’re away in another city. Thanks for a fantastic evening of great food and drink, and top-notch service!
