Nuba - Kitsilano Ratings and Reviews
One of our party has severe food allergies and sensitivities. She was treated with great respect. The meals were modified to take these into consideration and she had an absolute feast!
We decided on a tapas style meal and it was amazing. The Cauliflower is a must try dish! For the Baba Ganouj, ask for cucumber instead of the bread, the combination is amazing.
The portions are large so order fewer than you normally would for tapas. We could not even come close to finishing our meal. The prices were exceedingly reasonable and we were surprised how low our final bill was
The only complaint we had was that we were seated in a corner next to a wall and the next table was so close to us that it was actually uncomfortable for conversation, for them and for us. Plus, getting out between the tables after the meal was awkward. That is likely a better spot for a table for 4 instead of two tables for 2.
All in all a great experience with fabulous staff and delicious food.
We enjoyed a lovely family dinner at Nuba, sharing a few Le Feast platters, which never disappoint. All dug in to the wonderful food, from the nine year old kid to the 81 year old Grandpa. Always so tasty, ample portions and the service is outstanding. Recommended!
Our experience was very good. We love the cauliflower and it could have been a bit bigger. It was a bit skimpy. I remember it being bigger at the 2nd Street restaurant. Our friends from Switzerland like bread and they were a bit disappointed in the flat bread. Not that tasty - kind of boring. Otherwise no complaints.
Wow what a great restaurant! My wife and I went to Nuba to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. Food was absolutely awesome. We tried the "Spiced Prawns" and "La Feast" which is a great sampler - huge. On top of the great food, the service was phenomenal. The guy who seated us was very friendly and gave us a tour of the restaurant (luckily wasn't too busy at the time). Our waitress (Sarah?) was lovely - knew the menu well and was a joy to have as our server. Both seemed to genuinely care about the service they provided which I think is too rare nowadays. The food was fantastic but I would go back for the service alone!
I was pleasantly surprised by Nuba. I scored it high in all categories except for value as I found it somewhat overpriced - share plates for 2 with 2 drinks was $100 before tip. Some would not scoff at that, but for me, that's a bit overpriced for "tapas."
The food here is healthy and creative, the menu, varied. The cauliflower dish is a real standout and the choc. quinoa cake was delicious, chocolaty, but light.
There are many little nooks and crannies in this location, so you can enjoy privacy but still have a sense of what's going on in the restaurant. I loved that it's not noisy. So many vegetarian restaurants in Vancouver are off my list due to the din of noise. The cocktails were also amazing. I feel like the chefs here are progressive and on the cutting edge. I'm not a vegetarian, but would not hesitate to return to Nuba soon and recommend it to others. Good service too.
The service was excellent! As we only have an hour, food was ready when we arrived and everyone had their food as ordered. Only a couple had been to Nuba and recommended the place, so we didn't know what to expect. We all left happy and content. We would definitely come back and try the other dishes.
Thank you Deana for your assistance to make Dustin's birthday lunch a perfect one! Also, thank you for the 10% off on our meals. - Marivic
It was our first time eating at Nuba. I had heard really great things about the restaurant. I'm so glad we finally got to try it. The food was absolutely delicious. I'm not usually a fan of lamb but the lamb patties and Lamb pops are delicious! The Cauliflower is a must-order, so so good. Great overall experience
Have been there at least 20 times. And as always, loved everything about Nuba. From the wonderful hostess who recognized us and who had set aside our favourite table as requested on our online reservation, to the great service by the gracious, humble young lady, to the delicious vegetarian food we enjoyed. Loved the chocolate quinoa cake ! Highly recommend this restaurant for great food, great service and excellent value, time and time again . Thank you Nuba !
We chose Nuba as it was close to our concert venue and because it caters to vegetarians and, somewhat, vegans. The baba ganouj is the best, smoky and flavourful. I, the only non-vegetarian in the group, was somewhat disappointed in the lamb chop on the bone as it had a sweet sticky sauce and was, for the $, paltry. Servers were friendly and efficient and we had a good time all in all. One thing I did note (and remembered from a previous visit) was how small and crowded the tables are for the kind of plate-sharing dining that Nuba specializes in.
It's a rare evening when EVERY bite of both of our meals was amazing. Highlight was the original ways in which the potatoes were prepared. Steelhead and Flat Iron Beef were the orders. Down note was the Turkish Coffee - never had it before - like 2 little jugs of mud! - is it supposed to be this way? Did not tell the waiter, wanted no negative memory of this great meal.
