Nuba - Gastown
We love this restaurant. The food and service are amazing. Great place to share multiple items.
Most amazing food and atmosphere
Nuba - Gastown has been one of our go to restaurants when friends visit Vancouver, especially those who appreciate healthy, fresh, natural and tasty food. Also, it is a very convenient location, just a couple of blocks from the famous steam clock in Gastown.
This particular experience did not disappoint. The servers were attentive and knowledgeable. The food was very nicely plated and arrived quickly. Also, the desserts were excellent too.
Nuba never fails to please. I have brought many friends and colleagues here for lunch, but this was the first time I have brought my family for dinner. My girls were delighted, especially my hard-to-please vegetarian (mostly vegan) 19-year-old! We all agree, the cauliflower rocks!!!
Good vegan comfort food — some excellent — and superb, friendly service.
We had a great time. I brought friends from out if I’m town and they loved it, especially all the gluten-free options.
Staff were very helpful and took the time to accommodate a small birthday gathering. The atmosphere and food were awesome!
Very nice Lebanese food at a good price. We had the platter which had a nice mix of meat and vegetables.
Our visits and vacations to beautiful Vancouver are never complete without a meal at Nuba. Never a disappointment/ always delicious 🤤
It's our favorite spot to celebrate birthdays because there's something delicious for everyone no matter your dietary restrictions/requirements. Been going for years, love it so much. Najib's special cauliflower is a must!❤
So delicious! Make sure you get the Najib cauliflower and the Brussels!
We were really disappointed. We used to take people to Nuba when they were in from out of town, and have recommended it to numerous people in the past. We haven’t been since last year, and found that the quality of the food has decreased. Also, usually when we get the Grand Feast there are good amounts of each item, however this time it wasn’t equally proportioned. There were tons of potatoes (which we didn’t think tasted good) and very little meat (which was dry). We also really missed the lamb lollipops. I must admit, I don’t think we’ll be going back.
It’s what I call my dinner trick! I bring any new friend, out of town colleague or really just anyone who will dine with me to Nuba! We even celebrated my 30th birthday at one of the locations. My favorite location though is the gastown location. - Carissa
We had the feast times four. Great food, leftovers for lunch the next day. Our relatives hadn’t experienced Lebanese food before so a great intro for them.
Always packed, but always good service. Food is unbeatable.
Food amazing. Fast service. All around great experience. Would go back.
We had an early reservation because of a later event. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived. The service was friendly and quick. Unfortunately the pita were dry and the food was suprisingly bland.
Nice restaurant with a great atmosphere. Perfect for a dinner with friends. The food is good but definitely not spectacular.
One of those times where you go for the food but the service is so basic, so mediocre. Food before drinks, wine served after the meal. And them the audacity of the restaurant to ask for a preset 18% - 25% tip. Seriously? Not once asked how the meal was. Note to self - better places in the city to grab Middle Eastern food in the city.
Food is excellent! Two vegans in our family; Nuba has great options for them too! Totally recommend eating here!
As always the food did not disappoint. Good menu selection for everyone. Cauliflower is amazing!
Very good food, good atmosphere, very enjoyable evening
The food was great but our meal was very rushed, with the servers bringing tons of food and drink all at once. Clearly no room at the table but we had to make space. The table was too small for a group of 5 and we were shoved in the corner. Then we were asked to leave because there is a time limit on the table, something I was not told when I made the reservation or when we sat down. This was in extremely poor taste when they knew we were celebrating a birthday with our family. I won’t go back here for a special meal again.
Nuba is always a great place to dine. Best to make a reservation even if it is for an early time, because it fills up quickly. The grand platter was delicious, with the notable exception of the lamb skewer, which was so dry and overcooked as to be almost inedible.
I wish we could of had better service. But the food was delicious.
Always good, quite loud but the food and the friendliness makes up for that.
Nice place and it provides many vegetarian options.
Excellent everything! You can’t go wrong. Service is prompt and friendly. Food and drinks are beautiful and delicious.
Sadly our dining experience was not as we would have expected especially for the pricing of food. The food flavors were pretty average and the salad my friend received had no dressing and so was dry. My soup also was very bland in flavor. I’d recommend other people to experience other middle eastern/Lebanese food before trying Nuba especially at your high pricing.
The service and ambiance was all very good. Friendly and helpful staff
Good menu choices with plenty of choices for vegetarians - we had some hot/cold mezze and a vegan stew between 3 of us. Hot food wasn't that hot when it came out and almost every mezze dish came with exactly the same accompaniments - i.e. hummus and pickled cabbage - these were nice, but more variety of accompaniments would be better for when customers order several dishes to share.
Waitress was friendly, helpful and attentive enough without being all over us.
The restaurant is down in a basement and quite dimly lit, which we didn't mind but some may do. We were sat very near the toilets which wasn't ideal.
Great menu, great spot with ambience like one if the Eastern Europe cave restaurants. Very friendly staff and though they made a mistake with our order they were so great about it that it really didn't matter. What I really liked was we were not rushed through our meal, the place was not noisy and the food was wonderful. Will be back.
laid back setting with amazing food!
Great food , friendly polite staff
Good for gluten free and shared dining. Was hard to find.
Excellent! A fantastic restaurant with great quality food!
the baked cauliflower ,feta and fruit salad and the lamb were outstanding
Overall a very nice experience. The lighting ambience in the restaurant was a little tough on the eyes overall because of the flickering candles and constant breeze. Other than that ... The service was great and the food phenomenal (was my first time!). Thanks, Nuba!
Great for veggies.
Amazing food and mezze options- I wanted to order everything! Also homemade ginger beer is great :)
Delicious food and really great service. Took my family and we had a really nice time there.
