    The service was good. The food overall has gobe a bit downhill. The veggie mezze sharing plate used to have better variety including olives and Macedonian feta. Not anymore. Feels like they’ve filled it out more with more potatoes and rice. Tasty, but certainly not as good as a few years back

    Even though we made a reservation 3 days prior, they sat us at the table closest to the kitchen when several other 4 seat tables were available. That didn’t impress.

    I enjoy Middle Eastern foods. However, the food at Nuba was not as tasty as expected. We had the Sampler Mezza plate. Kofta was good, the shish tawook chicken did not taste authentic, I have tasted better, the prawns were slightly overcooked, the cauliflower was great, but the pita bread was stale. The hummus was good, but tahini was runny. Overall, this is my first visit and I was looking forward to it as I heard from several people that it was good but I was disappointed. Price wise, I thought charging $29.95 per person was a bit steep for what I got.

    We went to Nuba to celebrate our anniversary. Very cute restaurant and the staff are all very friendly. The food was fantastic. We ordered a vegetarian platter and there was quite a selection of appetizers. Also had the baba ganoush and wow, it was the best I had ever had. So smokey tasting. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for something different and very good value for what you get.

    Horrible service, partly due to theatre and after work crowd, but mostly because of the server's poor attitude, lack of responsiveness, and poor table maintenance.

    Nuba is a classic in Vancouver, never disappoints. The Gastown location especially is a really cool room in a heritage building. Food is delicious, servers are laid back, friendly, and knowledgeable. We were running late for our reso and they were flexible and accommodating. Thanks Nuba!

    I don’t understand why this place is so highly rated. It’s overpriced mediocre food. We got barely any meat on the shish kebab plate. The ambience is decent but it was so loud - kitchen noise and some construction noise from above! The service was also just average. They didn’t even offer us a small dessert for Valentine’s Day and 7 year anniversary. We also had to switch 2 tables because the legs were wobbly. Highly disappointed with this pick.

    We loved the vegetarian sampler - perfect amount of food for two people. The vibe was cozy and fun. The only change I would make is yummier pita (and maybe warm it up too)... other than that, great experience! We will definitely come back for another visit. :)

    Nuba had tasty middle Eastern food in a funky setting. We had a very fun dinner w friends there. Service was excellent. The food at Nuba would be massively elevated if they had fresh baked Turkish Flatbread, or home made pita. The "grocery store" dry pita did not do the very tasty dips justice

We’re tasty snd well presented. We will recommend Nuba, which we have known for years bit had not been to recently. We will be back. Thank you for keeping the menu authentic, the food simple and the prices approachable. Sincerely M Girvan

    Great food for what are normal Vancouver prices. Only issue was we went at lunch and the service was very slow, multiple items were forgotten, the salad had no dressing on it, etc. Overall nice location, worth it for the food, try to go when it's less busy.

    Extremely delicious. I went to a few Dine Out restaurants this week, and this was by far the tastiest and also happened to be the cheapest. The portions were really great so you could actually finish all 4 courses without being totally stuffed (but it was still a full-sized dessert!). Attentive staff, great drink selection, food was executed and seasoned well with balanced, rich flavours. Probably the best value meal I've had in Vancouver in years, and in the running for the tastiest (other contenders coating over $100). Slightly loud, but it's downtown. My friend and I were in a quieter corner which helped. Personally, I'd love if the music kept a more Middle Eastern / world music theme all evening!

    Nice vibe in the restaurant but very disappointed that despite booking through the Dine Out website they were not able to let us order off the Dine Out menu because they had run out of ingredients. A very poor look for a restaurant and a dampener on the evening. The food we did get was nice enough but I wouldn’t rush back.

    We joined a friend for a light dinner before a performance beginning at 7pm at the Playhouse, 5 minutes walk away. We came down on the #50 bus which stops a few steps away; he walked 10 minutes from the Seabus. We shared excellent Veggie Mezzes. Good food, ambience, quick and friendly service.

    We had a reservation and got seated a table that was highly inconvenient and asked to move - only to get excuses and attitude from hostess. Finally got moved to a better table. Unfortunately the quality of food is not up to par for a Lebanese restaurant and was quite poor. Will not be eating here again.

    Waiter was friendly, food came fast, was hot and great as can be. Wanted to order more drinks and once food and drinks arrived we were pretty forgot. Tried to get waiters attention for 15 mins, requested another drink and waited another 15 for it. Still my favourite restaurant and honestly not a biggie, we'll be back.

    We had high hopes for a treat of homemade Lebanese dinner but the two sampler was disappointing and over priced. Chicken was dry, plain and potato was mush. Sorry, this is not 4.0 we expected.
