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.

    Food is tasty, service friendly but you had to ask for things versus proactive service. Wine list was all unknown bottles to those of us at the table. Might benefit from a few more pedestrian choices or a house wine perhaps.b

    The table was too dark, the lighting on our table was not ideal, a bit too dark in my opinion. The chicken skewers were dry but other than that the food was delicious and well cooked.

    Holy shitballs. The food was so good! SO GOOD. Bite after bite of incredible flavours. Loved it! However, we were seated beside the kitchen, and it was SO HOT. Not sure if it was because of where we were or the general heat in the room, but it was uncomfortable. But, I still wouldn’t hesitate to go back. So worth it. SO GOOD!

    Chicken shish skewer wasn't exactly filling, the length of shish skewers in the middle east is at least twice as long as what you use here :) - overall taste was pretty great though!

    Delicious food. Our server was excellent, & such a lovely human being. Very reasonably priced & comfortable, attractive surroundings. I was hesitant about choosing Nuba as my Book Club had not enjoyed the food when we attended a few summers ago, but I had attended the previous ? winter/spring with family & the menu had winter food dishes which we really found tasty as we did yesterday.

    Right when my group and I entered, we were not greeted by anyone for at least 15 mins. We had to actively make ourselves known by making some sort of noise near the entrance or peeking to make eye contact with employees. When we got seated, we were left alone for almost half an hour. We were sat right next to the kitchen but we weren’t able to get a hold of any employee. We didn’t have a consistent server the entire night so we didn’t know who to reach out to. We also didn’t get half the food and drinks we ordered until we were able to get the attention of an employee which was difficult as they looked very tunnel vision. They were attentive to other tables, so we felt out of place. Food was okay, but service requires some attention.

    Lovely meal, good friendly service. Went early but as time went by music and other conversations got louder which interfered with talking with friends at our table. If you want a quieter ambience. Go early and be ready to leave as the bass starts pounding. If noise level doesn’t bother you, go any time. Love this place and must have the roasted cauliflower— better than anywhere.

    Ordered the vegetarian platter. Wasn’t crazy about it. At the end the server gave our friends our bill and we ended up paying for their bill. The ambience is just great! It’s a try it once and move on kind of restaurant for me.

    I’m a frequent customer and usually love the food. Multiple hot items were cold and just didn’t have the same taste. Hoping it was just an off night. Unfortunately my 1st time friends won’t be back.
