Great food. The flavors were amazing. I would definitely recommend their falafels. I thought the t-bone lamb was a tad bit too firm and cold when served.
Service could improve when it took them 10 mins to seat us despite of reservation and no line. Also had to triple ask them for more pita, coz the server's just forgot generally.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Our server was on her second day, but when given my extensive allergy list, she enlisted the help of the senior server.
They took my allergy list seriously and made what is usually a stressful experience for me, incredibly easy.
Food was fantastic and reasonably priced.
Thank you Nuba for a wonderful experience!

Well first of all there were many items not available and we were not informed Until we were placing our order!
The service was okay, server was ridiculous, I asked about portions to share some starters and she assumed that’s what we wanted for dinner! I also felt like as we didn’t order any alcohol we were not treated as well . My son ordered what was left in the mains as the choices were limited as the didn’t have the lamb chops or the fish . He HD the bison and it was overcooked, taro was dry all in all not a good experience!

The food is of a consistent, high quality and the service, excellent, despite the high turnover of staff.
We would recommend your resturant to all our friends and family.
It is also nice that we are unable to book, unlike before Covid, it was on a first come, first serve basis. Not ideal if you live far away and wish to invite others to join you for dinner.

We had reservations and ordered our appys to start. No one came back to ask us if we want anything else til 30 mins after we finished eating them. Then when we told the server we wanted to order our mains she seemed like she did jot want us to order probably because they close at 9… but if she had came back to check on us earlier we could have got out order in sooner. I had the lamb chops and I could not cut into them i had to ask for a steak knife and still did not cut. My appy was the chicken and it was dry. Everyones food was like a 5/10. I would not come back here.

Starters were really good, the cauliflower steak was inedible, the sauces that came along with the roast chicken were a complete opposite fit and did not compliment the dish well at all.
The hummus cold mezze the shatta prawns and the chicken skewers were presented well and tasted really good.

Our server was extremely pleasant and helpful when it came to what to order and portion sizes. She also picked up that we were celebrating a birthday and gifted us with some lovely treats after we had paid our bill.
All in all, amazing experience :)

We entered the restaurant and there was a disgusting foul smell. It felt like we were around sewage. We thought maybe it’s related to the construction but it lingered all throughout the restaurant. We were on the table for 5-8 minutes and it was really not busy. Maybe 3 tables in there. There were no servers in our sight. The smell was overpowering everything else so we decided to leave.

Horrible service. Our order was wrong , the chicken and lamb were both horribly dry. the appetizer came out 15 minutes after our mains. One of our mains came
Out 20 minutes after the other so we did not get to eat “together” no apology or service recovery . Do not recommend the Davie street location to anyone

They didn’t honour our reservation- pretty frustrating to get rejected at the door. There seems to be a disconnect between their hours and the reservation spots so they mentioned that kitchen is closed at the time of our reservation!

I absolutely love Nuba- the food, the atmosphere, the service. The food is delicious - there is something for everyone. I have lots of options as a vegan but I know that I can bring any friends and they can eat freely without feeling the need to adhere to my restrictions. Highly recommend for the diverse food preferences in your group- you will not be disappointed.

The food was very good as expected. We really liked the ginger cocktail. Our server was a bit dispassionate and didn't clean our table before desert... just put the desert dishes on top of all the crumbs. I guess for the price we were expecting better service. Otherwise we were very happy with the meal and will be back again.

Server was very unpleasant and forgot our order at beginning. Did not apologize until her manager prompted her to after I complained ... It was almost my birthday which I disclosed in the booking and no one ever acknowledged.
