Always great. A bit busy, but that's because it's good
Moderately busy for a Monday late lunch. Understaffed but those working here were good.If you can request a spot at the bank in the alcove. It's low seating, super comfy and away from the very LOUD music speakers. Playlist during my visit was brutal, french algiers style James Brown knockofff speedy music at full tilt. Hard to relax and eatDark mood lighting so pics are a bit dark but you get the gist.Had the falafel lunch plate. Came with crazy large lettuce/1/4 full cucumber slices as a mini salad. Food as always was good. Olives could of been fresher, player could of been hot but it's a nit pick. Yummy filling and nurturing food. As always at Nuba restos More...
So many good things on this menu, you really can't go wrong. But the fried cauliflower is really something special. Great wine selection as well.
Food and service are excellent.
Wonderful food as always and friendly staff
Love Nuba, always go here for dinner or their Najib's lunch special. Recently I had brunch and that was also fantastic. Always good service and a very cozy Gastown spot
Some of the best food I’ve ever had. The staff was welcoming right off the bat and let us pick our table. She recommended drinks (which turned out to be delicious). Our food took 10 minute tops and it was sooooo worth it. The falafel was by far my favourite but the chicken was soooo juicy and seasoned so well it has to be a close second. Will totally be back! Thank you for the great experience. More...
My girlfriend and I ate here when we were out on a trip to Vancouver visiting we started off with the crispy cauliflower which was probably my favorite dish of the entire trip I got a house a Oli and a green chili Verde sauce which just put it over the top. I had a beer at my girlfriend cocktail both were good the service was fast and the restaurant a decent decorations inside I will definitely be coming back by next visit More...
Amazing Lebanese food selection on a budget
The ambiance inside Nuba is great. It has a lively atmosphere and attracts a lot of young people. The service is good but slow - we were a big group. This has been a restaurant I've been wanting to try and I enjoyed it. We did their sharing menu. It gave is a variety of food and plenty of it! There were the hummus plates, salad and olives with pita bread for the cold starters. This was filling in itself. Then we had the hot starters - lentil, eggplant, cauliflower and falafel. These were all delicious and this is where I got so full! I also had the lamb and shrimp skewer. The shrimp was definitely better. My colleague tried chicken and she said it was great.Although the food was tasty and abundant, it was also pretty pricey. Worth trying if you want to try some new food. Great for vegetarians! More...
Amazing food, great esthetic, really decent service considering how busy they can be.
I constantly come by buying some food in here. I loved the prompt customer service and well cooked food. I recommend this place.
This place is worth trying. They serve big portions for convenient prices. Consistently well organized and with good atmosphere. Will come visit again.

It's nice and cozy!
Tapas style Great for sharing
We came during lunch time, it was group of 20, service and staff was efficient and we had our food quickly. Portions were reasonable and I personally found them very tasty. I would defo go back
Food and service was absolutely fantastic. Can not recommended highly enough
Intimate little place

Went for happy hour. Loved fresh drinks and tasty & healthy food. Naan was a bit cold but it was good overall.
I have been 3 times now and the food each time has been great. Good prices and portions, good service, what more can you ask for?
Unbelievable! I went in not expecting very much but the lamb was amazing. Highly recommend to everyone.
C M Shah Miraj
Great food and location.
Great food and atmosphere!
Super busy restaurant but staff manages the situation pretty. Great service and food. Roasted chicken is awesome (they call it the saffron chicken) lot of choices on the menu (for a person or to share, vegetarians, vegans, gluten free...). Hummus prepared with organic ingredients only and it's served with super fresh pita breads. New York steak is so so (supposed to be marinated but it's dry and tasteless) but it's not their specialty. Stuffed eggplants are my favorite. They roast them with red pepper, walnuts and feta cream. Delicious. Can't believe it's not more popular. I never see it on other tables but mine. Give a try guys. More...
Food is great and prices and good
Seamus C. W.
My go to place to eat with family and friends. Service is always on point and food is amazing. Only reason I can’t give full stars is there time limit and hey put on dinners. It’s enough time to eat but between policies like this and cactus clubs business model helps kill the traditional dining experience. More...
Buena comida arabe
Great food and ambiance.
service great, loved the food. wish they would open near us in the States. we will be back any time we are in Vancouver.
We stumbled downstairs a large party of us and we were treated so well. they moved us to the back low seats. Interior decor is just amazing .... It's straight out of a souk but hidden under an Edwardian facade. The staff and service were outstanding. The menu is such that you get a sampler--the sharing menu-- to be shared among people and it's plenty of food. The actual entre portion is small like a tapas dish but you get so much with it, that it's more food than you can handle, and the price is very very reasonable --especially when you consider the extreme high quality of the food. This is one of my favorite cuisines, and nuba nailed it in every way, not only surpassing all the standards, but also offering items such as shrimp and fish, that you don't get normally with so-called Mediterranean food. Our server / captain /guide Jenni was outstanding in her explanations, attentiveness, and vivacity. Thank you Nuba, I can't wait to visit again More...
Amazing place. We had a great brunch here unbelievably healthy and fresh.
The food was great. We sat at the bar and the bartender was the best I've seen. Poured a selection of wines so I could choose what to drink. Gave great recommendations, friendly and the busiest person in the room. More...
This place is absolutely fantastic! Service was impressive! Fresh juice was absolutely delicious! The vegan options are endless; and they’re allergy friendly for nuts! My husband and I stumbled across this place and decided to take a chance and we’ve already been back a second time! We’ll be eating here more before we head home from our honeymoon! More...
Une très belle cuisine libanaise avec des ingrédients de qualité
One of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver!!!
Great Lebanese food. Probably best to make a reservation.
Great environment, cool staff, and delectable treats (liquid or solid)
We had the Grand Feast and Flatiron Steak. We were served quickly and the food was fresh, nourishing and bursting with flavor. Service was fast, the host and server were friendly and the place has a great vibe. More...
The food is exquisite, complimented perfectly with an authentic atmosphere and great service.
Great food. Overpriced.
First time eating at the Gastown location, we ordered the Mama Dallou’ah which was delicious, it's a beet dip so it was sweet and I prefer savoury dips, but my friend really liked it, and Najib’s Special which was excellent, and came with two dips, the server explained the two dips but we missed it, but they were not tahini like the menu says. I had the juice blend on the menu that has spinach in it and it was fantastic. My friend loved her steamed almond milk with cinnamon and spices. The photo of the location on the website looks bright and airy, but the restaurant is down a flight of stairs from the sidewalk and is not nearly as bright or big as it appears in the photo. Our service was okay, he didn't look us in the eye or smile. I would definitely go back for the food and continue getting the food delivery for my office. They don't Doordash for lunch so you need to arrange a courier for pick up. More...
Awesome, healthy food.
The srrvice was curtious, polite, and fast. The drinks were delivered in time for our meal. We did not need to wait long even thought it was a full house. The food was good and tasty, worth going back. More...
Awesome underground vegetarian spot with many creative middle eastern offerings. The variety of hummus is amazing and I would highly recommend the tasting course so you get to try a bit of many things. This is somewhere I like to frequent and is always a great experience. More...
After many days had really authentic Mediterranean food. The place is tucked away underground so maybe a bit hard to locate.The falafel plate we ordered was excellent. I think best falafel I have had since my stay in Egypt. The chicken tawook plate was great too. The chicken was very moist and the taste was perfect. We will definitely go back to try out more! More...
A cozy spot for a lively meal with friends and family. We went for lunch and shared the Najib's Special Lunch Plate and the Chicken Tawook Lunch Plate among the three of us. The pita and the generous servings of hummus made it a rather filling meal.The roasted cauliflower was definitely the star of the show, though the chicken was also juicy and had a nice grilled flavour. I didn't feel that either dishes were exceptionally good though (I imagine the cauliflower can be easily recreated at home).Prices were OK. This is probably a restaurant you'd go to for the atmosphere and to share an intimate meal as the food isn't enough to warrant 5 stars. More...
Great food, incredible baba ghanouj, lots of vegetarian options
If you like vegetarian food and Lebanese cuisine, Nuba is perfect. I definitely recommend the La Feast to share!
Leslie P. Polzer
Great food, try the feta and the chicken skewers
One of the best place to eat lebanese food in Vancouver! Ambiance = A1
Nice restaurant, food quality is good.
Tasty food at a fair price.
it was great for dining in but not for take out.good ambience, fully packed and lively. food was good and tasty. I would recommend.
Absolutly delightful! Great portion, impeccable service and quality of food spot on.
Delicious food, funky setting but a bit pricey for the serving sizes. We ordered a feast for 2 so we had a nice selection of foods to try.
Loved the selection. They have vegetarian selections, and the portions are big. Be ready to eat a lot and to have a great time.
I've been here before and usually only come because the lunch deals are quite affordable and delicious. I went for dinner with a group last week and we got a family style meal which I was surprised to see had the shared dishes which were 90% plant based! There was only one option on the individual dishes that was vegan, but that part of the meal was not very large in comparison to all the shared items so it really was a great display of vegan friendly shared meals. I really enjoyed the food as did my friends (najibs special, the falafels and the hummus all went very quickly!!). The service was also friendly and informative. More...
Food was amazing, but the underground space makes it really muggy and steamy
Chicken skewers and cauliflower were amazing, great and cozy ambiance.
It was a lovely experience of delicious tastes with great variety. Surprising number of gluten free and vegan options.
The food is great. The cleaning not so much...
Wrap was delicious, but chicken was a tad dry.
Nice restaurant in Gastown. Enjoyed the roasted cauliflower! Shakshouka- not so much.
Great food. I find the portions to be small, but the quality of the food is too good to pass up.
Really great food with a good atmosphere. Service was great and the specialty drinks are quite too. The lamb, chicken, and market fish would be recommendations.
Delicious, fast and polite service, fair price and clean.
Great Mediterranean food. We went at happy hour and we tried a few dishes. Highly recommended!
Always excellent. I have been here many times and have never had anything on the menu that I have not liked so far. The Najib's Special is definitely not to be missed. They have a great selection of house made drinks and juices too. More...
Good food. HALAL
The food was great! I had the lentil lunch platter which was excellent. It came with plenty of a mix of items (shame there were only three tiny olives). My partner had the lovely citrusy falafel as a lunch platter. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and the waitress was humorous and fairly attentive. I would love to return. The cucumber water is a nice touch More...
It was not familiar taste for me, but delicious! And resonable price. I'm gonna revisit here.
Jon Grabelle Herrmann
Excellent food, chill atmosphere. Super flavorful. The cauliflower, prawns, and the pistachio dessert are winning dishes!
A little pricey but it’s worth the money! You get a lot of portion too so it doesn’t feel like you’re wasting your money there. The food is so good!
Great Lebanese food available with this local chain which has expanded and upscaled itself as it grows. Food is always well deserving of its praise. Only issue is the wait and hustle and bustle from it being very busy More...
THE most amazing hummus and beet hummus!!! Among other things of course. The cauliflower is insane!!!!
Fresh lebanese restaurant, good vibes
Great vegan options, fantastic atmosphere.
Excellent food and staff very helpful. Turkish coffee was excellent
Blown away. The food here is amazing.
Great food with easy going friendly staff. Call in before you go as they close for after lunch and open only before dinner.
Good food and good service
Extremely flavourful food. As someone who eats middle-Eastern and Lebanese food all the time, this definitely stood out to me as special. The hummus with beer was exceptional and so was the halloumi dish! More...
All I can say is wow. Everything I ate and drank was fabulous. You have to try the cauliflower.
Very tasty food, decent price, great service
My favourite restaurant in Vancouver. Food is always incredible, service is great, fast and ambience is a bit different in each location, which I love. The infamous Najib's special is always the highlight of the meal! More...
Dined at all of their locations over the years, but here the most on several team lunches and food is always first rate. Hearty portion sizes, wonderful flavors, and decent prices. Recently started using Ritual for pick-up to-go orders. Order always ready within a minute of predicted time in the app, made fresh and delicious. Evening prices are a little higher with different options but overall still excellent, though I to prefer aw a lunch spot. Will continue to visit regularly. More...
This was our first time eating at Nuba. We were so impressed with how flavorful the food was. We were also impressed that the menu offered meat options as we were expecting a full vegetarian menu. The chicken skewers were absolutely amazing. The variety on the menu allows for any type of diet to enjoy the food. The 2 person table we were seated at was a little small for the dishes we ordered and the waiter waited to bring our protein dishes until last which I would have preferred they came with the platter we ordered. I also tried the Lebanese tea and it was excellent. Service was very quick but we also didnt feel rushed to leave. More...
Great food & many healthy options to choose from. The service is a bit slow & I hated the music. Their music should be geared more towards Lebanese music since this is a Lebanese restaurant after all!
We went here today for our 29th Wedding Anniversary and the food was fantastic! We had the trio of dips, marinated olives, Najib's special and the vegan stew. Our waiter was so kind he brought us a small assortment of baklava, all of which were very good. I loved the atmosphere and how friendly everyone is at Nuba. We will be back! More...
This is, & always has been, my favorite place to eat in Vancouver. I've been gone for a few yrs, now...& am back for only a few days - & it's better than ever!! The place was packed!Today I only had Lentil soup & a Latte. Both deeeliciious! Back for more, tomorrow, probably. More...
Cauliflower is to die for
I could literally live off of their cauliflower. It's frequented my dreams for years.
Knockout! Best falafel ever. Busy place during lunch time, but that's completely understandable. Everybody is welcoming and efficient. Lamb is prepared beautifully. Plates are ample and beautifully presented. Sorry, I'm raving, can't help it. More...
Amazing food and good staff
Allan Jay Kose
The falafel plate & chicken shish-tawook are authentic and super flavourful. The steak tenderloin was amazing. The tabouli salad was decent but could use some more love in the recipe to make it true. Super friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. More...
Always love this place. Great environment, amazing food.
Manuel Humberto Ibarra Cervantes
The different dips were delicious, I asked for Lamb Kibbeh and it was really good, I went alone, I couldn't try all the things I would've wanted but was good, the service a little cold.
Food was good and cooked fresh.
I was a bit disappointed when I arrived by the look of the place. Very basic decor in a basement space. But the service was friendly and the food was good. And that dissipated my first impression. Not your traditional Lebanese cuisine though. Labneh served in a remekin and without olive oil is not something you get in a real Leb place. More...
Good food and unique ambiance
Great food and service.
Great service and food!
The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great. It's always busy so worth making a reservation if you're here in the evening!
Very good food, nice waiting staff: a good representation of (and an excellent first entry point into) Lebenese cuisine.
Maria Eduarda Borba Continentino
Always a great experience at Nuba!
Amazing food and great, speedy service. My go to place!
Excellent food and fantastic staff made for a truly enjoyable experience both times I’ve been. It’s a fantastic atmosphere
Very good atmosphere! Enjoyed their food. Great spot to just sit back and have a drink.
Food is great! I got Najib’s Special - the lemon-roasted cauliflower made perfectly.
I love Nuba. The stairs down into it is a pain when my knees are giving me problems. All the staff are friendly and courteous. The food is delicious for both Vegans and meat eaters. I invite my non-vegan friend there and they rave about their meals as much as I do. More...
Th food was amazing. The lamb kafta in particular, the lamb just melts in your mouth. High recommended!!
Always a treat! Get their large feast and I can guarantee you, that two people will easily eat to their hears content. Probably even 3.
Delicious every time.
delicious foods and awesome people!
Amazing food, so many vegetarian/vegan/GF options, and the lounge area is beyond perfect!
Service was exceptionally speedy and staff was accommodating. I was traveling and they had no issues with me changing tables to charge my phone (I'm a server myself and I know this can be a bit if a nuisamce). Also, their Falafal was portioned well and all kinds of tasty! More...
The staff were very helpful. They noticed we had 2 very tired children who were losing their minds. They bumped are our order to the front and had the food to us in 5 minutes. The food was also excellent. Awesome service awesome food More...
Have tried this place so many times and it have never disappointed me. The food is always fresh and tasty.
The tables are a bit small for the amount of food they serve... Which I guess is a good thing...? Got the Feast with extra skewers and really liked them. Also like the dim lighting that provides intimate atmosphere. More...
Love this place. Interesting menu, consistent quality, great options for vegetarian and vegan. The staff are friendly and the place is very clean.Because it's below sidewalk level. I always feel like I've been transported to the middle east. More...
Great quality food and large portions for relatively little money, nice atmosphere and very friendly serving by Jenny! We really enjoyed our dinner!
Dishes are simple yet delicious. I usually go with the chicken. Someone else got the eggplant dish and said it was also delicious.Service was great. Even got a sample of a new dessert they had. Good place for a date.They have multiple locations downtown and in kits More...
Wonderful flavors and love the atmosphere. It is always busy but worth it.
Not a big fan, as I love my meats. But my vegan friends loved it!
Great food and atmosphere. Can be busy at lunch but worth it.
Tasty food. Lots of vegetarian options. Juice is top quality, highly recommend the carrot one.
Good mezza. Pita was a bit dry for my tastes.
We we're a party of 5 so we ordered family style. What a wonderful selection of very tasty well prepared falafel, lamb kabobs, vegetarian delights and so much more.the atmosphere is cozy friendly and not pretentious definitely a spot you'll want to check out for the food and the ambiance. More...
Great food but can get busy
I’ve been coming here for the past 10 years amazing every time!
This location does take reservations unlike the smaller location on 3rd just off main. Super busy at 5pm on a Friday.
Stopped for lunch and got in before the rush! The food was great..a nice plate filled with the main meat..in this case lamb...with houmus, veggies and pita on the side. The service matched the food quality and very friendly and efficient.Plan to return the next time we are in Vancouver.Ray More...
I'm sure the other menu items are good but I cannot bring myself to order anything other than the deluxe toasted pita with najib and hot sauce.
Delicious food and great service.
They've got really good chicken but take outs aren't worth it(portions are much smaller)
Awesome food that is fresh. Something for all palates. Good serve during a busy lunch service.
Everything is amazing.
Started our meal off with homemade ginger beer which was he perfect way to warm up after a cold rain day. We arrived during happy hour so we started our meal off with the trio of dips. By the time we were done the dinner menu was available so we ordered the feast for two people. It was the perfect amount of food and also a great way to sample a bit of everything from the menu. The crispy cauliflower was tart but not as crispy as expected. The falafel was delicious as was the mujadra and feta. Great Lebanese food. More...
Good food, we tried the "Le Grand Feast" it was all good. Friends who suggested Nuba have tried most of menu. Roasted cauliflower was delicious. Menu has vegetarian and gluten free options. Service was good and quick, server was knowledge. Decor was sparse and cold. More...
Daniel Schmid Leal
Nice ambiance. Very nice healthy food
Roasted cauliflower is a must.
Always good for me!
The food here is amazing! Visited from out of town. Would recommend to those with a adventurous pallet!
The service here is amazing! Steph seated us and was so lovely. Then Shamick came to greet us and is so wonderful and knowledgeable about the food items and the vegan options. The food is so ridiculously good. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in a while and the service was awesome. More...
Vea Marriz Banana
Great food, bit of a wait.
Fantastic food with amazing flavors. My taste buds were dancing!!! .Great choice with Great laid back atmosphere. I will be back
Good food, good service and cozy
We had a reservation for a group of coworkers tonight. The food was fantastic!We specifically went to Nuba because of their vegan offerings (a few of us were) and their cocktails are especially tasty. For larger groups there is a set menu which they emailed us so everyone knew what they could get. Super easy and left us able to socialize.All 12 of us were satisfied and happy. The food was fantastic, the drinks wonderful and the service was perfect! More...
Food was good. Distracted staff.
Awesome food lots of vegan options. Everything was interesting and good
Delicious food, good options. Be prepare to spend around 20-30 per people
Delicious as always.
Great food but a bit pricy
Great cocktails, we got the petite feast which was a plate of spreads and pita and it cost us $10/person, which was a bit pricey for the content. However, the vibe is very lively and dark-lit, so would return More...
Always a great time at Nuba, try the shared plates! A lot of quantity for the price and a bit of everything on the menu.
A gem. First timers should try one of the platters.
Danilo S Abreu
Love the food but am obsessed with the Najibs Special -- an addictive cauliflower dish.
In Gastown - tucked downstairs and easy to miss but, well worth it. We (my sister and I) visited for early dinner and enjoyed mezzes - my favorite was lentil dish called Mjadra. Great place for 2 or small groups sharing. Busy for lunch so reservations are recommended. More...
Great affordable food!
Very authentic Lebanese food The food is mouthwatering and delicious
I like the food soo much. Only this Nuba is nice. The portion, food, drinks are really good. Tho place is very dark I wish they can really change the location.
Timeless Electrolysis & Esthetics
This place is amazing! This is my second time coming to eat here and both were excellent! Love the ambiance, food and the staff is always great! I can't wait to come again!
I love their food! So tasty and fresh!
Really nice ambience and decent priced for a place in Gastown.Food is pretty authentic and would visit again.
I've eaten at Nuba probably a dozen times in the past few years, and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. The food is always consistent and delicious, the service efficient and polite, and there's something on the menu for everyone... More...
A popular destination for lunch or dinner, Nuba offers bold flavours that will draw diners looking for vegetarian options or meat. The Turkish coffee is a strong brew but a must try for any coffee lover! More...
Very cool under ground oasis. Great food. Vegan super friendly. Did not disappoint. Enjoyed the sample platter. Yum! Did not go away hunger. Full of flavor but not spicey. Server was attentive, helpful but not pushy or bothersome. More...
Service was good, food was good. Would go back if I wanted Lebanese Canadian food.
I made a mess in my pants because the food was so good. Only napkins though, no wet wipes.
Really good and fresh. Nice place for a healthy lunch.
Great mix of plant and animal based foods great service and delicious food
Beautiful place. Food, hospitality and ambiance are excellent.
The food is amazing!! I love the variety of vegetarian options too.
M de Haas
Love this place. Authentic great cuisine. Took the wife for the first time and she wants to go back soon. I always get the juice of the day.
Delicious and very authentic!
Had the sampler meal between co-workers. Be aware, it's more food than you think! That being said, the food was delicious (especially for an umame lover), the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was very relaxed. I will definitely come here every time I visit Vancouver. More...
Delicious delicious Lebanese food. The falafels are delicious and everything else on the menu. Definitely take advantage of happy hour as the prices become more reasonable. Although a pricey place, the quality definitely lives up. More...
All around amazing. Great food, ambiance, and service.
Good place with nice ambiance. Food was really good but service wasn't that great.
So good!! Amazing food and service!!
Great restaurant experience. The serving staff will walk you through all the choices; food is refreshing yet filling.
Great place for tasty healthy vegan-friendly food. I had the falafel plate and shared the roasted cauliflower with my husband. Everything was delicious and not too expensive (not as cheap as a take-out falafel wrap, but table service and lovely atmosphere make it worth it). More...
Great atmosphere, tasty food, some interesting cocktails. I had a really nice time and a delicious vegetarian entre that left me full and totally satisfied.
This place is awesome!! Unfortunately our waitress seemed to be disappointed that my wife and I like to share entrees. Anyways, the food and atmosphere was great and a great selection of drinks!
I love the vibe of this place. It’s slightly underground but has a very sexy feel to it. We are always impressed with their food and happy they have several vegan options we can enjoy. Cocktails are great and service is spot on. I’ve been dozens of times and never had a bad experience. More...
Wow! We were in from the states for work. My team loved every forkful from Nuba! They have tasty and beautifully plated sharing menu. Tuesday night is discount wine!
Consistently drool-worthy. Excellent portions, great service and great selection of meal options.
Had dinner there with my colleagues for a late birthday celebration. Food was great as usual. I had first been to their other location at Kitsilano a few times. Always enjoyed the food and service. It never disappoints. My favorite appetizer is the cauliflower. I love it so much that I started making it at home. The taste is pretty darn close.... ! More...
Delicious food. Very friendly staff and management.
Awesome lunch spot if you can get a seat before everyone else!
The Oracle Oasis League
It was good food very busy the staff were really nice
Gastown staple! Never disappointed after eating here.
I love nuba great restaurant friendly staff
I'm a fan of their chicken tawook mesa plate. So delicious! Try to come at 11:30 to avoid the lunch rush.
Loved the food and the staff. Ambiance was the best part.
My first visit at Nuba. Will definitely be back. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Hot tip: get the group platter for about $30 per person if you have a large group. You get to try a lot more and some of the mezzzes are refilled as they run out. Also, the falafel and cauliflower is the best I've had. Definitely a must try. More...
Randle H. Fox
Mmmmmmmm good! Very tasty and reasonable. Decor is in need of an upgrade but overall this is a major go-to in Vancouver.
The Le Grand Feast was fantastic!
4.7 stars because perfection is hard to obtain! Delicious! It s 1 Of only 2 places I choose to Order Vegan, called Mjadra. Abbotsford chicken is wonderful. I Only come for lunch $$ because the price point is more affordable and I can order lunch platters. Great fresh squeezed juice! About $15 plus tip at lunch without juice. More...
Great spot. Even though it was busy it was quiet and the food was great.
Love, love, love Gastown Nuba!I’ve been coming here for years and the quality is still top notch. Service is great and many food options are available. Their flavours just make a party in your mouth...Their Turkish coffee is a must try!! More...
Fresh, delicious food all the time
Great food great service. Good value
My falafel appy was delicious. The female waiter was great considering we were a party of 15.
Nice middle eastern food restaurant, this unit it's located downstairs right in the corner of victory square.The restaurant uses fresh organic ingredients, it's a very fair price and the falafel plate it's amazing
Great service, quality food, good flavours. You can’t go wrong with coming here.
We did a small take out order, appetizers of hummus and Lamb hushwie both were very good. Would definitely return.
Food was fresh and tasty and service was friendly and quick. I happen to get takeout and they were extremely accommodating while i waited for my order.
This place is awesome! Food and service was fantastic!
I’ve got Mojadara as a vegetarian dish, costs about $20, the food cooked nicely and served fresh.I was seated quickly it was 3pm, I came here the night before and I left because it was fully booked.
Great taste! La feast and the Turkish coffee are a must
One of the best dining experiences ever!
I am not sure what I the most, the burst of flavors, the vibe, the staff, the atmosphere, the lights, the price, the location...There are 3 things I always getGinger beer, cauliflower and chocolate quinoa cake with cardamom ice cream, my body and mind nurture in this things.Also ask about the postcards hanging on the bar ...fun stories there! More...
Best place in town!
We had a carry out. Great hummus and lamb appetizer.
Great food, but busy place, but noisy. Allocate enough time to really enjoy it.
This place is always delicious! So many good vegetarian and vegan options that its impossible to try them all in one visit! Also great options for the meat eater in your life too. My favorite nuba location IMO as they all offer slightly different menus and I just love this one a little extra. Plus delicious local brewery beers! (Mmm faculty brewing ) More...
Great service and delicious food. Please provide more low carb high protein options.
The food is great, excellent price and quality. Very nice ambient and awesome service.
Amazing Falafel plate - crispy on the outside and soft crunchy on the inside.
Love the atmosphere in the restaurant. The food was good. I also think it''s a fair price for the value and amount of food. A good place to try out.
Delicious food, friendly staff
Great experience, steak was good! Loved the hot mezze 's, great to order with a kabob on the side.
The food is absolutely incredible!!
Very good food. Very good service. Worth the time and money.
Great food. The sharing menu is awesome!
I've been here three times so far, and have really enjoyed the food. My four star rating is a little bit of a harsh perspective, but I'm rating it based on being a downtown Vancouver dining experience. Overall, it's a good restaurant that I would recommend to others for sure. The staff are okay, but not super helpful and friendly -- that said, they do their job very well overall. The food is consistently delicious, but I feel its not at an 'exceptional' level. Again, its probably very close to a five star location, but I'm being a little harsh. More...
I went to this place during my trip to Vancouver and I really liked the food. It was a rainy day and we were looking for a good restaurant in Gastown, this Lebanese restaurant came up among top ones. Having looked through the photos, we decided to give them a try!The restaurant could barely be spotted in a rainy day because you have to take some step down to get into it. The place was busy at around 4 PM. We were seated in the back side where the comfy sofas are. The server was a girl who had very long hair. Not in the mood because she did not care about us that much. We ordered Falafel, Lamb Kibbeh, Chicken Tawook (skewers). The Falafel was YUM!!! If I knew they were that delicious I would have only ordered Falafels! It was different than the other Falafels I had already had! Greenish paste inside, so crispy, and the green sauce and hummus next to it, made it into a very pleasant plate! I really liked it!My husband got the Lamb Kibbeh. Something that was new to us, never had before, it came with good portion of hummus, salad and rice. I got chicken Tawook, 2 chicken skewers with the same sides (hummus, rice, salad and the green sauce). We both really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. All of the dishes were new to us, except the chicken skewers, really liked the flavor of all 3....The only reason I give them 4 instead of 5 is the attitude of the server. She did not even come to us once after the food arrived. Our glasses were empty of water and never refilled, never thank us to give them service because we told her we're not from Vancouver.... Her face was furious... she obviously was in her bad mood that dayAny way I do recommend this place to everyone in Van City! More...
there food is great i really like there ginger beer
Delicious and cozy. Was lucky enough to get a table for two without a reservation when we went, but I'd recommend booking ahead as it was packed. The mezze platter for two was plenty of food, but make sure to add a 1/2 order of the halloumi if you are cheese lover (it is awesome.) Service was fast and appropriately sassy, and the atmosphere was chill. Well worth a visit! More...
Authentic middle Eastern food ... So delicious!
Great sharing platters
Amazing food every time & excellent service!
Great vegan options
We always have a super long wait, but that is probably because we usually go at peak hours. The service is good, and the food is always delicious. Small note: The atmosphere at the Gastown location is a little more fun than other locations (Davie st.). So it's a little more interesting when bringing friends from out of town! More...
Amazing food, a little pricey but still great tasting.
Tasty Lebanese food. Great healthy and fresh ingredients. Definitely going back
My all time face place in the world!!
Great food, great service, nice ambiance. I love this place!

Delicious middle eastern food in a chic underground restaurant with generous all you can eat servings and vegetarian options aplenty. You can't go past Nuba for a quality meal at any of their restaurants in Vancouver. Why is the Gastown outlet the best? They allow bookings and cater for groups really well with split billings. The food is a garlic-infused journey with scrumptious salads, unlimited soft pita bread and free large sparkling water bottles. For $33 you can get two protein choices and a range of lentils, spicey cauliflower and succulent eggplant. The tabouli is fresh and fragrant. Staff are friendly enough but I suggest coming here for the food! A good wine list but this generally puts the cost of your meal up significantly.#nuba #letsguide #vancouver #gastown #lebanese #lentils #pita #allyoucaneat More...
Great option for vegetarians and anyone with food allergies or on a gluten free diet.
Had the large feast. good tastes.
Good service! We were seated immediately and got our orders taken briefly too. The food took a while, but it understandable because it was the lunch rush. Food and drinks were up to par. Nice cozy atmosphere More...
Great Service, high quality food. Portions aren't as much as you think. The grilled Saffron chicken is also amazing but not as big as advertised on the menu!
A feast of flavors in all the dishes, from appetizers to deserts. Good vegetarian options. Quick service and decent size portions. I would also recommend trying their signature cocktails! More...
Great Lebanese restaurant hiding in a basement. Delicious good, quick and attentive service.
Amazing service and great food!
Love the food here. Would not be a great issue if I were forced to eat here every day.

So good! The falafals are someone the best I've ever had! As a vegan I eat then a lot so I have gotten my fair share! And the food was so tasty and fresh!!! The waitress was awesome and so friendly. The menu is labeled for those with eating restrictions. And the waitress also made sure to ask of food restrictions or allergies!! Love love love would come again in a heartbeat. More...
Love the vegan options here
Went for a birthday meal and ordered the sharing menu. The food was good (in particular the falafels, chicken skewers and halloumi) & plentiful but there wasn't enough space on the table for it and our server, whilst efficient wasn't as friendly as other serving staff there... overall a good experience.
Always really enjoy the atmosphere and especially the food! A great place to bring my out of town guests :)
When I met a friend in Gastown, the old part of Downtown Vancouver, we decided to have dinner at the “Nuba”, a Lebanese restaurant in a basement at the corner of W Hastings & Cambie Street. Despite it was very busy, we were able to get some seats at the bar. That place had anyways rather the atmosphere of a pub than a stylish restaurant. We ordered “Le Grand Feast” a non-vegetarian two course meal with samples of appetizers (hummus, taboulleh, baba ghanooj and pickled cabbage) and pieces of different main courses (prawns, lamb chops, chicken skewers, and bowls with fried cauliflower, fried potatoes and a green salad). I did not like the taboulleh; it was rather just a mix of chopped parsley and green onion than the refreshing and tasty salad I know. And, the fried potatoes very simply bland, no considerable seasoning at all. Also the fried cauliflower did not have the crispiness that was promised in the menu (I believe that is not possible without coating). All other items were very good: The prawns were well spiced and the lamb chops were tender and juicy. I don’t know whether the price of 65.00 CAD is justified, but considering the amount and quality of the meal, together with the location in downtown, it might be ok. I also tried a drink of the day: Moscow Mule (Ginger beer with vodka; 9.00 CAD) – it was interesting how the vodka increased the spiciness of the ginger dramatically. Due to the elevated price it is certainly not a place that I would like to visit very often. But I can imagine that occasionally I could come back here. More...
You'll just have to find out for yourself.
Nuba served up tasty food for 8 of my coworkers today. We pre-ordered everything and they just took our drink orders and delivered our food lickity -split but without rushing us to finish up and go. You will never have a bad meal here and staff are excellent. More...
Excellent food - service - and drinks! Had the cauliflower, ribeye, and ginger beer and for dessert, Turkish coffee! All items very good! Staff very friendly and attentive ! Well done! Worth the price! More...
Cozy, relaxing place!
High quality Lebanese food in a very warm and cozy setting. Portions are a bit small and a little expensive but worth it for a good meal in a night out in Gastown.
Fantastic food, with very nice presentation. Very good service. A bit on the pricey side for what you get. Very warm and inviting atmosphere. Loved the falafels and hummus.

Very cosy and good for lunch. The food was a little cold
Loved the sharing menu, excellent value and every item was delicious!
I had to give 5 stars just by how yum the roasted cauliflower was.
Exceptional Lebanese food in an informal bustling setting. I had the stuffed eggplant and it is among the best eggplant I've ever had. The cauliflower specialty is fantastic as well. And the spicy shrimp starter was another keeper. While their beers are great the only cider on the menu is too sweet.They source their vegetables from a small farm about 30km south that maintains a dedicated plot for Nuba.Nuba will always be a planned stop in Vancouver.

Excellent food at decent price!
Tasty spot but make a reservation.
The cauliflower najib was delicious. I'm already looking forward to another visit soon!
Yum! Excellent service and delicious food! We were there on a packed Saturday night, but Kamran treated us like we were the only customers! Try the lemon cauliflower...amazing! More...
Solid meal, friendly staff, give er' a try you won't be disappointed.
Please get the Macedonian feta and thank me later.
Great customer service, delicious vegan food, wide variety of food. Fast service
We dropped by here without a reservation and the restuarant accommodated us even thought they said a reservation was needed and the place looked jam packed.Food tasted wonderful & the In house lemonade was top notch. Price was resonable and a wonderful atmosphere with the nice ambient light once the sun sets. We will definately visit next time with a reservation since we were given an hour to enjoy because another party had our tables booked. More...
Great service great venue good food
