Mediterranean
Opened in 2010, Dunyā is designed and created by chef & owner Coskun Abik. Dunyā Restaurant has garnered local acclaim as a Mediterranean casual dining experience touched by the fusion of refined urban technique and culturally traditional flavors.

Offering fare inspired by fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients, Dunyā brings this same delicate balance to a new era of vibrant Mediterranean dishes in an industrial chic setting located in the heart of San Francisco’s Nob Hill District.

The décor captures the warmth and feel of Mediterranean hospitality, while a vast floor to ceiling array of local and imported wine bottles is illuminated by blown glass filament pendants, inviting guests to pull up a chair to the full service wine bar.

    Loved the shakshuka! Thank you for not making it too spicy. We also had a burger and an omelette, everything tasty and delivered fairly quickly to the table. The bottomless mimosa was tasty and strong! The ambiance is Middle Eastern/Mediterranean. The music was a tad too loud but great service. We will definitely be back.

    Dunya has been a longtime favorite of mine over the past 4 years, but unfortunately my birthday dinner there this week was a total flop service wise. We continually had to ask the waiter to come over (we waited 15 mins, after I'd asked for someone to come take our drink order) - and despite understanding it was probably an understaffing issue, the waiter's attitude and and disposition towards creating an enjoyable dining experience was really disappointing. Everything was a rush and we were made to feel like a total inconvenience. Not to mention, at the time, we were the only patrons at dining table indoors (everyone else was just sitting at the bar), so it didn't seem like they were flooded with patrons at the time. The food was good and the portion sizes are fantastic, but the service element was severely lacking. Pretty bummed by this since I hadn't been out to eat in a while and decided on Dunya for a special birthday occasion. Might rethink dining options in the future.

    Been going here for years. Neighborhood gem. Prices seem to be increasing and it's not quite as affordable as it once was (especially if you get wine) but that's to be expected in the neighborhood. Was packed on a Tuesday. Long lag between the apps and the main's but otherwise good service. Likely the kitchen was overwhelmed. The Meze platter is a must.

    We made new year reservations here for yesterday at 11:30. Don’t know if it was a miscommunication and where the error happened between opentable and Dunya but the restaurant was closed. We ended up at the restaurant at 11:30 which was our reservation and found a lock on the door. We had to scramble and find another spot

    The food was tasty and a perfect proportion, the decor was charming, the wine elegant, but for this boomer, the noise level was high. This made for not the perfect place for a cozy dinner for two. I think it would be a nice choice for a group, an office party or maybe on a day when it wasn't as well used. Sweet spot though.

    We ordered Moussaka as well as lamb meatballs and enjoyed pinot noir. The Moussaka was the best we've every had the opportunity to taste. Perfect texture (not too firm, not too soft) and wonderfully spiced. The lamb meatballs were great, spicy, but still tasting of lamb. The wine came out a bit warm (storage temperature too high?) but it was good.
