A pleasant surprise

Stopped in for lunch on a busy day in December. Although a tiny place with steady clientele, we found a table and ordered what turned out to be very tasty and good food served effortlessly in a minimum of time for a very reasonable price. Plus fast and friendly service! Will definitely return.

We stopped in here for our last meal during a week long visit to downtown vancouver. It's a small cafe and was very busy during the lunch hour it seems to have plenty of regular customers which spirals volumes to me about the service and food. I had the lamb in cabbage leaf special with tzatsiki and hommous. Portions were... More

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.
