1)The food was really tasty, 2) he served in a fewer than 8 minutes. 3)the waitress is polite and respectful. 4) the juice they have is fresh. 5) the price is a little bit expensive (we had three main plates and three starters like Hummas, baba ganoug, and majadra) all of these cost about $90. If they add hummas with... More

Two of us stopped by for dinner at 7:30PM on a Thursday, ordered, and took seats at the open table by the window. Since this small establishment only has about a half dozen tables, we observed a steady stream of patrons carry out their food. Our food arrived in fewer than 10 minutes. We enjoyed Taboulleh Salad, Lamb Kibbeh, and... More

Fresh ideas, friendly staff. The best hummus I have ever had! The food is healthy and definitely worth a visit. The restaurant is small and seating limited, but worth the wait.

Had a great meal at this restaurant. The food was fresh, well prepared and provided a multitude of flavours. It was refreshing to see that they didn't offer up just another "Earl Stones Club" menu. I'm definitely going back, not only is it tasty, but healthy too!

Great rooms and great window tables (tbl 301/1 was ours). Decor and ambience were spot on. Service was smart. Our guy knew his menu upside down and inside out. To start I had the house special which is "Najib's Special" - this is crispy cauliflower tossed with lemon and sea salt and tahini. Really great starter. The "fish of the... More

The food is always fantastic - try the falafel with avocado wrap! And the cauliflower ... to die for. The service can't be beat -- always there when needed but never overbearing. The Cambie & Hastings location is better than their other locations both for food & service. The other locations are good but C & H is better. If... More

Had some takeout pitas from Nuba, which were jammed with deliciousness. It was my first visit there but plan to return! There were many vegetarian selections on the menu, which was great as some in our group did not eat meat. Fresh and yummy.

Not exclusively vegetarian, but many vegetarian dishes to choose from. We had lunch at the Gastown location at the corner of Cambie and Hastings. The four of us shared their Le Feast which is a sampler of six or seven of their most popular vegetarian dishes. All excellent, but best to add one additional dish to fill four people. Nice... More

We wanted something a bit different for dinner in Vancouver and were looking at the Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, but found that the Cafe Nuba was only 3 blocks away from where we are staying so decided to give it a go. It is certainly not a place to go for the decor, but the food is amazingly tasty! We ordered... More

I've been here several times. I like the menu, love the veg options but I have had mixed results. Also, some of the dishes are quite expensive for what you get. If you go, try lunch time when it is more casual. Dinner is hit and miss.
