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.

    In my experiences Lebanese food is aromatic - lots of spices and refreshing herbal notes, leafy green herbs, and zesty lemon, and garlic. If you are looking for that experience then Nuba will not do it for you. Our server was helpful and attentive, but the restaurant felt dingy, tired and in need of an overall. The baklava was very good.

    The food tasted good but the mezze was overpriced in my opinion. They have also changed how they make their potatoes. Liked them better before. Service was excellent

    Food is decent but serving portions are child like (basically 3 bites and it’s gone) especially since you pay $16 for each appetizer. Add 2 glasses of wine and a tip = $75.. I would not recommend it as a good value proposition.

    I don’t love in Vancouver, but any time I am here, I visit Nuba multiple times. I gave even had two birthday gatherings at the Kitsilano location! I have celiac disease, and eating here has been very safe for me because they take gluten free requests seriously. I love Nuba!

    Food not as good as previously. Chicken was undercooked to the point of being pink. Aubergine dish was very basic, especially considering the cost. I have experienced better at Nuba before.

    I love this Nuba and its food more than life itself, I think! I hadn’t been back regularly for a few years but, every time I return, it lives up to the high standard I hold in my mind. The server we had on Monday was particularly lovely and funny and seemed to jive with exactly what we needed. The food was particularly good - I loved the Najib’s Special (obviously) and the summery halloumi recipe!

    We are visiting from out of town and had an incredible meal tonight at Nuba. We were seated and greeted promptly by the friendly server, and everything we ate was absolutely delicious. The flat bread and hummus are a must, and we also loved the half roasted chicken and the incredible Turkish ice cream cake with espresso gelato. Thank you Nuba for a fantastic evening!

We will definitely be back when we don't have a time crunch so we can relax and really enjoy the great food.
