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.

Nice choice of lunch options with good size portions. Place relatively small, so go a bit before noon or you'll have to wait a bit. Food was tasty. Certain to head back.
