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.

Everything was just great. We do really really appreciate to have been assigned to the most lovely table of the restaurant.
Thank you for recommend us the special for 2people to share, so we could try almost everything in the menu; the beef skewers were awesome, so tender! And the shrimps, perfect. The cauliflower was very yummy too. Everything delicious. Unfortunately we were so full and didn’t have room for desserts... so we’ll come back!
Thank you!

They called to make sure I was on my way as I was a bit late and overthought they had another reservation for the table one hour later, they made an effort to open a different table so we were not in a rush to enjoy and finish our meal. Food is good! Thanks!

Wonderful experience here! Our server was great, professional and hospitable, the ambiance was great, and the food was great. The Najib's Special was a bit over-seasoned compared to what I've had in the past, but overall, everything was delicious, the lentils and the rice pudding dessert being especially stand-out. Thanks for a great evening!

My group of five foodies really enjoyed our meals. Four of us selected from the Dine Out pris fixe and one went rogue and ordered Brussels sprouts and tabbouli from the regular menu. The dip trio was very nice, and of course Najib’s Special cauliflower is LEGENDARY with good reason. Of the three mains, the brisket rated highest. We noticed the chicken option was not accompanied by any veg side, while the vegetarian stuffed zucchini, fragrant and tasty, could have used a heartier accompaniment than the green salad (I left still hungry!) Overall, as usual for Nuba, the food quality was top-notch and the server struck that nice balance of present without being intrusive.

Tried the dine out menu. Both roasted cauliflower and trio of dips were really amazing. The beef brisket was nice but the mashed potato was bland. Cookies and cream was okay.

Amazing food and a cozy ambience! I definitely recommend this place if you want to try something new. The servers were very friendly and the service was quick. We ordered garden falafels, trio of nuba dips and saffron chicken which were all exceedingly tasty.

Food was delicious - we had a great table just inside the door in a little booth that was perfect for the 4 of us. We shared all of our food choices and my only thought is that it would have been easier if the plates were a little larger.

Very convenient location for dinner and movie. Wine was expensive and no 1/2 liters. Tables small for two people, food and drinks. Waitress was efficient but not overly friendly - more robotic. Food fantastic.
