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!

This is one of the best, most outstanding Lebanese cuisine I have ever had! The food is all on point and there are creative concoctions alongside very traditional dishes, superb!

I love Nuba in general, especially their way of serving Middle-Eastern food is really nice and I'm not even mentioning the taste because it's brilliant. My only recommendation would be to serve Turkish coffee in porcelain cups instead of glass like it is meant to be, other than that it's a 10/10 to me.

My daughters are celiac and we were very happy with the options available to them and the modifications provided ( cucumber slices for our baba ganoush instead of pita for them) All our food was delicious and I had a drink special that was amazing. Would definitely recommend this place to others.

Food and service was excellent. We loved it all and our server Evan was awesome. He was friendly, super helpful and knowledgeable about all the dishes we asked about. Everything I ordered was vegan and gluten free and it was all delicious. My husband loved his dishes as well. Can’t wait to go back.

The music was a bit loud for one of the tracks. But had it been normal pre-Covid19 crowd then the music volume would have been fine.

Celebrating an Anniversary. The waitress was awesome. The kitchen was well behind . Waited for our main course over an hour. Felt sorry for our waitress. Food was pretty good but the chicken was dry. We were w a bit disappointed as usually everything is awesome.

The food was okay, but the service was very slow and quite grumpy! They seemed quite busy so maybe were not having a very good day, but it impacted our enjoyment over all.

Very tiny tables; they could not fit the dishes on the table. The server ended up explaining what the food was for like 5 straight mins without catching a breath. We appreciated the intention but it was just too long.

Food is so delicious! One of our favorite restaurants for sure. Only complaint would be it was cold sitting near the door as it opened quite often sending in a very cold breeze.
