Good Vegetarian Options
Lebanese-style taverna in the same space as the legendary Greek restaurant Orestes. Nuba unfolds over multiple levels through small, low-ceilinged nooks, and up and down numerous staircases. Healthy, delicious Mediterranean food served with panache.

The food was fantastic. But the music was much too loud for good dinner conversation. We asked to have it turned down but were told that wasn't possible. We will not come back, only do take away.

Slow service. Didn’t really feel like a service resto.

Also the pita bread was stale garbage. Put love into your product.

A trip to Nuba is always wonderful! Absolutely love the food and the service. A little sad to see the new wine list as I miss the old one, but that is my only complaint.

Le grand fest for 2 is a wonderful way to sample so many of the delicious flavours at Nuba. Treat yourself to the vegan ice cream and date cookies. Yum!

The restaurant accepted our reservation at 8pm. They closed at 9 pm on the dot and kicked us out! Please leave more time for your diners or don’t accept those late reservations.

We were a table of six, we told our server that we would order ‘family style’ sharing all the plates of food we ordered- the problem was that the plates were delivered without a serving spoon or fork, even when we asked that a serving spoon be provided on the next plate......it required us to flag down someone to get us a spoon. In addition the food came too fast, hardly time to circulate and enjoy first few dishes, and then clear space on the table for next dishes.....and two dishes from our order were forgotten.

Service at the front door was professional, personal and quick. Ambience was great, romantic and nice lighting. Good space between tables (covid times). Our server was good but very robotic and formulaic, no personality involved. We had the La Grand Feast for two. The first course (tabouleh, hummus, baba, veggies) was the best part of the whole meal. The meat platter was overpriced IMO for what we got. The beef was too watery, the chicken was too dry but the prawns were delicious and the cauliflower was amazing. They had oysters as part of the dine-out menu but you could ONLY get them on the dine-out menu. I thought the point of dine-out was to allow customers to try your menu at a reasonable price..... why put something on the dine-out menu that you'll never be able to get if you go back?

We ordered the 3-course meal deal which included an appetizer, main and dessert. From the 2 choices given we chose: King oyster mushroom mezze (appetizer), Grilled bison flatiron (main); & Turkish coffee cheesecake which we complimented with a Turkish coffee. Delicious!

We ordered the lamb - it came to the table just barely warm. Sent it back - they said they would make another one. Again it was not hot. It was an expensive dish and to have it served just warm was not good. they did not even discount the meal. Ended up only eating 1/2 of it and taking the rest home as my appetite was gone. Will not go back.
