The food is excellent. The service is good. The ambience leaves something to be desired. But, what can you expect from an express restaurant? I really liked the food. When I want to sit down and get a quick bite, this will be a place I will visit again!

This is regarding the Nupa on the South side of Rochester/14th street. We called in our order at 415 pm and wanted it by 430. I was still waiting at 5 pm when I finally got my food. There seemed to be one other couple in the restaurant who were waiting and a couple of walk-ins (who got their sandwiches... More

The second one is in Crossroads Shopping center off highway 14. I went to that one for lunch on a Monday. I told the counter person I was waiting for a friend & she asked if I'd like a cup for soda while I waited. I also saw her rush to hold doors for a man using a cane. These... More

Nupa is just ok. The food is quick and fast food like so if you are looking for that it is excellent. If you are looking for more it doesn't cut not enough choices.

Our family has been coming here for years now, and it remains a favorite. My favorite is the steak salad, my husband usually has the steak pita. The fries are great too. They even have items that they will make gluten free. The service has always been friendly. I remember one time the owner was walking around the dining area... More

New York prices for third world country food, in contrast to what most reviews say. May be the reviews were posted by the owner. For starters it is self-serve, and on top of it the guy on duty last Sunday was plain rude. Hated myself for being there, under cooked Falafel and old Salad. What's with the single door? Its...

I had the falafel pita and it was delicious. My husband had the lamb kabob and loved it. He said the baklava was just OK. The service was super friendly.

We were driving from MSP to Iowa City and decided to stop here for lunch because it came recommended by an app. My wife and I are all about no-frills places which serve very tasty food and this place fit the bill. The location is nothing to brag about because it's on the corner of a nondescript intersection, near a... More
