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.

    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.

    Reserve an early dinner if you want to have conversation, it gets very loud later. I am glad we reserved for 6:45 because it was not too noisy until about 7:30.

    Dunya has always been a go-to brunch spot. Unfortunately today the service was exceptionally bad. The staff was very rude and bottomless goes until 3pm but they would not refill our glasses before the 3pm time frame ended. We have been to Dunya so many times and have usually enjoyed our experience but after this time all 8 of us will not be returning

    The moussaka need more seasoning, in particular some nutmeg. Portions were large. Service was good. Music a bit too intrusive. Every song had an annoying beat as if the chef was pounding something in the kitchen. The sauntered Calamar was okay.

    Dunya is a wonderful neighborhood venue on Nob Hill. Inventive Turkish and middle eastern fare, creatively imagined and very flavorful. It's small so reservations are a must. Service was very good (even though server was on her first day) and the chef/owner very engaging. Will be on my list to always visit in San Francisco. A great small restaurant. Highly recommended.

    Best Turkish restaurant in San Francisco. I've tried so many places, Gyros on North Beach, Troya, Tuba and La Mediteraine and this place beats every single one by far. This is the generous Turkish place you would get in Istanbul with quality ingredients, amazing wait staff and by far the best ambiance for a date or a catch up with a friend. Their Beyti, Borak, Goat Cheese Pistachio, Mixed Grill are AMAZING. Their Ararat Salad (great Armenian touch) is the best Mediterranean salad in SF city. All in all these people are so kind and just love what they do. You literally feel that the waiters are owners. Hard to beat any Turkish place like this in SF city. We keep coming back!

    Had dinner with some friends that I had not seen in a long time. One person found plastic wrap in their salad. They gave her another salad, although instead of apologizing told her that the lettuce came in a plastic wrap. Ofcourse, it does, but the restaurant is not suppose to serve it. The coffee was cold. We told the waitress. She once again told us," It came warm. We added milk, that made it cold". I would not revisit this restaurant.

    Casual, good go-to. Love the mezze platter, although we ordered the red snapper (one of the specials for the night) which was overcooked and way to salty. I'd recommend sticking to the menu.

    Since my last visit, Dunya has become v. popular (and concomitantly noisy), but does not appear to have hired enough staff to cope. Ran out of baklava on a Tues. evening. Tasty, well-seasoned food but insufficient information provided for those of us who want to know more about the sources of the food we're eating.
