Recently Nuba was featured by USA Today on a list of the best spots for gluten-free food in Vancouver. Nuba earned the top spot, among many other exceptional places worth checking out, including East is East, Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co., Ask for Luigi, La Mezcaleria, The Wallflower Modern Diner, Graze, Vij's Rangoli, CHAU VeggiExpress, and Miku Restaurant. The writer had these kind things to say about Nuba:
If you're going out with a varied group of diners Nuba Restaurant is an excellent choice. Whether you're gluten free, vegan, vegetarian or a lover of meat, the options are plentiful, healthy and very tasty. With several locations throughout Vancouver, chances are there's one in your hood.
Nuba is one of Vancouver's favorite gems that has built a strong following which has leadi to its expansion across the city. Everything from the hummus, baba ghanouj, falafel, pitas and main plates are bursting with flavor and are quite healthful. Each item on the menu is very reasonably priced and made from quality, local ingredients (where possible). The West Hastings restaurant is a very popular lunch location amongst the business district workers. Dinner is no exception and is always packed with people waiting to get their Lebanese fix from Nuba. Each of their locations is equally delicious so don't be shy to give any of the properties a shot. Nuba specializes in Middle Eastern dishes and their mezzes are similar to tapas. Alongside the mezzes are larger plates if you're not into sharing.
