I'm torn about writing this review. We visited on Valentine's Day - one of the busiest days of the year for decent restaurants so I feel like I should cut them some slack. Nuba has been one of my favourite restaurants for the last little while. However, they slipped a few notches last night. Let me start with the service... More

This is one of my favourite spots for a nice meal. We usually get La Feast + halloumi cheese. The cauliflower is awesome, but the quality of the dish varies from visit to visit. This location has a nice atmosphere as well. The last time we went they were busy with a party and our food was slower to come... More

We had a very nice lunch at Nuba on Broadway. This is higher end Lebanese - not your typical falafel shop food. I had Kibbeh balls which were delicious and my wife had a veggie stew which was also very good. However, the pita bread was really bad, unacceptable in fact, and we didn't eat it. It tasted like plain... More

I went were on a casual double date with my boyfriend, brother, and sister in law and had a wonderful time! None of us really had much of a clue what Lebanese food really entailed (except perhaps falafel) but had heard good things about Nuba! And rightly so! The venue itself is super cool! The building interior feels like your... More

Had lunch with a vegetarian friend. Ordered the "La Feast" lunch set for 2. Food quality did not match the prices, and was really just half as good as hole-in-the-wall places run by actual Middle Eastern families. Texture and seasoning was a problem for most items. For example, the hummus had powdery texture and minimal flavour. Of the entire set,... More

Nuba Kits has great food - pretty much the basics of what is served at other Nubas around town but a few special dishes to Kits too. The atmosphere is very nice - the decor is beautiful and there is always a good crowd. It's a very nice option to have in the neighbourhood.

We chose this location as it served both brunch and lunch options on Sundays and it takes reservation through OpenTable. We tried the breakfast manouche, lamb sausage with poached eggs and lamb kafta. Both were very good and flavorful. Their daily juice special was made with fresh ginger and it gave it a nice kick. The service was good and... More

We had dinner on a Friday night with another couple who have been to the other Nuba. Many people have told me what a great restaurant this is, and I was looking forward to trying it out. It was indeed worth the visit! Service was great, food was wonderful and delicious, the ambience was fun. Lucky for us it is... More

Good food at an even better price. They had a vegetarian platter that was very reasonably priced and a ton of food. Very tasty.

There are several Nuba restaurants in Vancouver; we tried this location and the one on Hastings. The latter served a platter for two that was well prepared and a good value for the money. The former, served a mediocre platter, much smaller portions & poor value for the money. The falafel was cold and somewhat tasteless. The Hastings location's ambience... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
