Wonderful food and great service. We had late lunch and were not super hungry but the size of portions was just perfect. They don't have gf pita but replaced it with cucumber slices for the hummus.

So good! Almost everything was gluten free because of the type of food and was really good. No reaction afterwards

We ate dinner here a few nights ago - our first since our daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease. I noted this in our reservation and the super wait staff were fully aware when they came to greet us. The menu clearly notes what items are gluten free and our wait staff clearly explained how they use a separate fryer for those items. We enjoyed a very flavorful meal of hummus, with cucumber and romaine leaves in lieu of pita, crispy cauliflower, grilled halloumi on tomato and some of the best falafel I’ve ever tasted. All in all a great experience.

The staff were very knowledgeable about coeliacs and I felt very reassured and safe (and I’m usually very nervous about restaurants!!!). I had the lentil soup and cauliflower special (very nice)

Fantastic food. Very knowledgeable staff. We shared “the Feast” and they mad a couple of alterations to make the entire thing gluten free for us. My favourite dish was the Najib’s special crispy cauliflower. I could eat a whole plate of it. So good!!

You absolutely can’t go wrong with any Nuba location. Menus are clearly marked, they are very used to dealing with Celiacs and the food is sooooo good!

Knowledge staff and servers. The food was out of this world. Most of the entrees weren't labeled as GF, so it pushed us into a more middle eastern style of eating. The way to go is to order a bunch of mezze (middle eastern tapas) and enjoy the spread. No pita, but for a salad-nut the romaine leaves were perfect scooping and stuffing utensils.

Alright, so this is actually for their Broadway location. I've been to Nuba in the past, and have really enjoyed the food (DELICIOUS baba ganoush), but my last encounter was after my celiac diagnosis. I went in after reading many a positive review for being safe for gluten free individuals, ready to get my baba ganoush on. I explained in detail to the waitress the seriousness of the situation- no cross contamination, special preparations, etc. She gave me a very ditsy head bob, said it was fine, but that she didn't have a gluten free bread replacement except lettuce (unfortunately I cannot describe her vacant attitude appropriately here). I said that would do me just fine. The food arrives, and was tasty as always, but SURPRISE! Not only did I get very sick the next day, they charged me $4 for the lettuce. I'm alright paying extra for gluten free ingredients, but I could purchase two heads of lettuce for that price. Between getting sick, her bad attitude, and lack of transparency I wont be going back. I'll miss the ganoush though...
