The food here is fresh and outstanding in taste. And it's not just me who thinks so... it's one thing all of my friends and colleagues (and I have a lot of both of those) agree on. We're all repeat customers. The roasted cauliflower is...More

Experienced delicious middle eastern dishes at Nuba the other evening. Great variety of dishes for a veggie and a meat eater. Not easy to find in a restaurant. Server was prompt and happily doing her job - really pleasant. Would definitely return.

Four of us went to Nuba Cafe for an early dinner, two of us being semi-vegetarian, and the other two being omnivores. The restaurant does not take reservations so we had a 15 minute wait before being seated at 6:00pm. We went slightly overboard underestimating...More
