    For the price this is the lowest value for money lunch we have ever had. At about $17 each for salads, only tiny portions came out. The tabouli salad was almost entirely a bit of chopped parsley with just a few grains of bulgar. The lamb entre was lamb on the menu but instead came out as small squares of minced lamb. This is the first time in my dining experience ever that lamb served was minced lamb when on the menu it indicates lamb. This was a considerable disappointment.

    The food was delicious. Portions were small but we were expecting that. The music playing in the restaurant was well chosen and fit the ambiance of the place. Service was just ok. Food came well before the drinks arrived. They announced last call for the kitchen but wouldn’t keep a dessert we wanted to order in the cooler while we finished our entree (At least our server didn’t believe that was possible and didn’t bother checking for us) Basically we felt rushed to leave. The food is excellent here but the hospitality is lacking.

    I understand finding good staff can be challenging during these times. Our waitress was very nice but clearly very new in her role. She missed the mark on quite a few items. Most notably was when we our table ordered your feature bottle of wine and she kept asking if it was a cocktail. We had to go up to the board and show her it was on their menu. When we finally returned with the bottle, she didn't know how to open it and after many attempts and the cork crumbling, my friend had to step in and open the bottle. She forgot about us for a while and didn't clear our dishes for 30 minutes after we had finished eating. When we received our bill, it was incorrect and she had to come back several times with the adjusted bill. Overall, we love Nuba, she was very nice and polite and trying her best.

    First, They were so kind pushing my time back when we were late running downtown and then I ordered a meal I didn’t realize had nuts on it.. I’m allergic. They took it back with a smile and remade it. Even though it was my fault for not reading the whole description, they made me feel like I had done nothing wrong and they were happy to fix it. Would definitely recommend :)

    A good place to go if you like to try something new, actually the food is not bad at all, while nothing surprised me. Baked cauliflower has depth in taste, it mixed with bitter, sour, spicy & a bit sweet, very impressive. For other dishes, meat itself were all well cooked, but too flat & light if go without sauce, the pickles was great though. Nang was warm, good. We ordered bison steak, which is full of wild flavour but a little bit hard to chew as it is lack of fat. Side dishes are wonderful. Service is pretty nice, portion seems not big at the beginning but in fact it is more than enough. Price is very fair.

    First time at this location. Love the heritage building and walk down to the subterrianian vibe of the spacious restaurant. My guests were 1st time visitors. We ordered the Grand Plate X2 with an order of Halloumi and devoured everything. The creamiest hummus I've ever had, the bison so tender and juicy and the babaganoush! Service was great, very attentive and friendly staff. We thought it was very good value as the food was so obviously fresh and well prepared. The three of us ate a lot of food and enjoyed some fancy cocktails for $140. Worth it

    The womens restrooms were a bit disappointing, locks on doors do not align so cannot be locked. As with everywhere now, prices seem to be climbing while portion sizes are reducing.

    Food was excellent but I would not visit this location again unless I was with a single person. It was uncomfotably loud, which made it incredibly hard to hear the 4 people I was with. I would chose a different location over Gastown in the future. Also, open table asked if there was a special occasion when I made the reservation. I said it was a birthday, but this was not acknowledged by the staff, which I would have expected, having made note of it. Additionally, on most occassions where I have been to a restaurant when celebrating a birthday there has always been a gesture by the restaurant to acknowledge this with a small desert offer, perhaps with a candle, or a scribble of 'Happy Birthday' in sauce on the plate. Again, nothing like this happened. Our bill was at least $300 so I can't imagine this gesture would be a sacrifice financially for Nuba. I was disappointed.
