Nuba - on Davie
Fantastic Lebanese food. Don't miss Najib's special
Regardless of location, the food at Nuba is excellent.
We will be back!
Server was very unpleasant and forgot our order at beginning. Did not apologize until her manager prompted her to after I complained ... It was almost my birthday which I disclosed in the booking and no one ever acknowledged.
Everything was just great. We do really really appreciate to have been assigned to the most lovely table of the restaurant.
Thank you for recommend us the special for 2people to share, so we could try almost everything in the menu; the beef skewers were awesome, so tender! And the shrimps, perfect. The cauliflower was very yummy too. Everything delicious. Unfortunately we were so full and didn’t have room for desserts... so we’ll come back!
Great dinner with girl friends. The food NEVER disappoints. Such great quality, value and array of choices! Fresh and flavourful you never feel the weight of the meal after you have indulged. There is a dish for any taste and preference.
They called to make sure I was on my way as I was a bit late and overthought they had another reservation for the table one hour later, they made an effort to open a different table so we were not in a rush to enjoy and finish our meal. Food is good! Thanks!
All good! We enjoyed the experience and the food was excellent.
Wonderful experience here! Our server was great, professional and hospitable, the ambiance was great, and the food was great. The Najib's Special was a bit over-seasoned compared to what I've had in the past, but overall, everything was delicious, the lentils and the rice pudding dessert being especially stand-out. Thanks for a great evening!
Great food. The music was a bit loud. Hard to carry on a conversation with four. The restaurant was very busy. Service was good and un-rushed.
Loved it! We forgot about the Dine Out special menus available so appreciated that choice as well. The food is fantastic
My group of five foodies really enjoyed our meals. Four of us selected from the Dine Out pris fixe and one went rogue and ordered Brussels sprouts and tabbouli from the regular menu. The dip trio was very nice, and of course Najib’s Special cauliflower is LEGENDARY with good reason. Of the three mains, the brisket rated highest. We noticed the chicken option was not accompanied by any veg side, while the vegetarian stuffed zucchini, fragrant and tasty, could have used a heartier accompaniment than the green salad (I left still hungry!) Overall, as usual for Nuba, the food quality was top-notch and the server struck that nice balance of present without being intrusive.
Tried the dine out menu. Both roasted cauliflower and trio of dips were really amazing. The beef brisket was nice but the mashed potato was bland. Cookies and cream was okay.
Amazing food and a cozy ambience! I definitely recommend this place if you want to try something new. The servers were very friendly and the service was quick. We ordered garden falafels, trio of nuba dips and saffron chicken which were all exceedingly tasty.
Great location, fresh Mediterranean food, nice decor. Will certainly go back. This restaurant also has other locations in Vancouver
Food was delicious - we had a great table just inside the door in a little booth that was perfect for the 4 of us. We shared all of our food choices and my only thought is that it would have been easier if the plates were a little larger.
Very convenient location for dinner and movie. Wine was expensive and no 1/2 liters. Tables small for two people, food and drinks. Waitress was efficient but not overly friendly - more robotic. Food fantastic.
A little noisy but delicious meal. Great pre-show location.
It was a busy night so very happy I made reservations shortly before. Service was excellent as was the food. Staff accommodated our need to dine quickly and dash to a movie and offered biodegradable take-out boxes for our uneaten food - we were stuffed! Thank you.
Food was delicious and the service was great! Will definitely go back!
Friendly and helpful service. Didn’t feel rushed. Delicious
While booking, I had added “Birthday” for the occasion. I expected that theses kind of notes gets passed to the servers but that wasn’t the case.
This is my 2nd time going to Nuba in Yaletown. I've been before for dinner and wasn't particularly a fan, however I've heard such good things that I assumed we were there on an "off" night. We gave it another chance and came for brunch, and quickly regretted it.
We got the shakshuka and salmon benny. Shakshuka is a dish with eggs cooked in simmering tomato based sauce. Instead we got a small cast iron pan with a pretty average tomato sauce with two previously poached eggs thrown in. Instead of warm, thick slices of bread to dip and soak up the sauce, you get think slices of pita bread. I understand that they want to stick with the Lebanese concept, but if it doesn't work for a dish, change it up! On top of that, the dish was almost room temperature, which didn't help. The lamb patty that we asked for on the side was dry, burned and clearly just microwaved on demand.
The salmon benny was better, however the poached eggs were not warm and runny, but again, lukewarm and overcooked. It came with a salad on the side, which didn't have enough dressing and therefore wasn't very flavourful.
It definitely wasn't the worst meal I've had, hence the 2 stars, however considering it was almost $60 for brunch for 2 people, not only was it not worth it - but it put a damper on our morning because we felt so disappointed and frankly ripped off. We walked away saying "never again."
We have a great time. The service excellent and the food is very good and well served.
I have eaten at Nuba on 3 or 4 occasions, and always had a great experience. The food is alsways out standing and the serving staff are always so knowledgable and very helpful and pleasant. I always reccommend Nuba to friends who are lookling for a delightful food experience, with a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Thank you to all of your Staff for a most enjoyable Dinning experience once again.
