Review of Nuba in Gastown

Overall Rating


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...

Celiac friendly?
