    Good value for food, I recommend the Le feast for 2 people. Service was friendly and the cocktails are definitely on the more tastier and unique side compared to other restaurants.

    Very busy so service was slow. Reservation made for 4 but we were sat at a table that was really only appropriate for 2 people. Our drinks came when we were almost done our food, we asked to cancel the drink order and they then appeared. Given 25% discount on drinks but we were more inclined to just leave. Food however was very tasty.

    Service was really poor; waitress forgot to bring things to the table that we had requested. She was also not friendly and we felt like a bother. Portions were quite small; not worth the value.

    the food was great. The sample platters were a little expensive, but VERY worth it since it lets you taste more than half of all the dishes they have, at once, and fills two people up.

    An hour and 15 minutes into our dinner the server told us there was another reservation for our table and we would have to leave within 10 minutes? Our reservation email said we had two hours AND there were a ton of empty tables around us so that was very confusing. Guess we won’t order dessert then! The service was very disappointing, the first words she said to us were “are you ready to order dinner”. Not hi how are you, any questions about the menu, would you like to order drinks…overall not the greatest experience despite the fact that the food was really good.

    The grilled cauliflowers and the falafels are next level! So good! I liked the Feast option but thought it was a bit expensive for it being vegetarian. I will definitely go again but it’ll have to wait a bit longer for me to save up more.

    Had a good time here. The good was great, ambiance was nice. Only point of feedback is that the staff may need a refresher on the menu. The feta was amazing, I’d reco you add it to any meal you order!

    Nuba was wonderful! I am celiac and they had so many meals that I could safely enjoy. I had the halloumi cheese and it was so good! I shared the special (cauliflower) with my husband. He doesn't normally eat cauliflower and he said he'd order this again. There are so many great meal choices and items that you can easily share with the table. I also liked the atmosphere in the gaslamp restaurant. I look forward to visiting Nuba again.

    The restaurant does not have air conditioning, and we were in a corner table with little air flow - so we roasted! But (luckily?) the hot weather is past so no longer an issue. The food was served promptly. The shish tawook was delicious!

    Nice selection of vegetarian food and the cauliflower was outstanding. I had the lentil and they were quite good. The only drawback was the element of surly service and a badly dressed hostess.

    The menu changes are disappointing. Portions are very small. The Halloumi was overly salty & the texture grated on your teeth. Was really looking forward to eating here after so long but the food was disappointing. Service was good though.

    Food was great. Service was poor. First, seating arrangement was poor (less than desired). They deceived us by making us order flatbread (and pay for it) even though free pita was available for everyone. When we asked if bread came with meals, we were told no. We then proceeded to order flatbread, only to find out from a fellow patron that pita was free. Free pita was served cold. The server never came back to see if we needed anything.
