Dunya Ratings and Reviews
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.
Dunya was chosen as our spot for dinner on Valentine's Day. We were visiting the city and used Open Table to make our choice. Everything we read about this place was true. It was a bit noisy, but that didn't bother us. We loved the energy of the place. We chose a late dinner and it worked out perfectly. The other thing that was great was that it was a relaxed atmosphere (we didn't have to get ddressy for dinner.) The casual atmosphere allowed us to transition from play to dinner. Loved it.
This was my first visit here. Highly recommended by friends. Got right to our table without a wait. Food was delicious & fresh with a variety on the menu that was suitable for any taste. Luckily for me I'll eat anything. We had the sautéed calamari , the Greek salad and the Adana kebab. We shared all of it. Portion sizes are perfect for sharing
This place is small and when full can be very noisy. We were there the evening of Santacon....lots of "happy" and loud Santas on Polk and in the restaurants. Ambience might be improved on a more routine nigh and might even be romantic. Food and service were very good.
This was a great choice for a business group of 7 people. We were able to get a reservation same day even though they don't have a lot of space. The wait staff was constantly filling water glasses and always nearby to bring pita bread or another serving of hummus.
Would recommend the mezze platter to try most of the appetizers. I enjoyed the Beyti and would also recommend the Mixed Grill if you're really hungry.
Great atmosphere and would absolutely go again.
LOVE Dunya! Ambiance is very cozy and inviting. Owner Coskun and his staff are very friendly and welcoming, makes us feel like family. The food is delicious! The mezze platter is definitely the way to go so you get a bit of everything. We also enjoyed the prawns and lamb meatballs. Will definitely be back!
We went to Dunya last night, and the food was fantastic. We got the hummus as an appetizer (the hummus was great, but the pita bread could have stood to be a bit more well done), the lamb burger was awesome (especially if you save a bit of hummus to add as a topping), and the beyti was amazing. The service was pretty terrible, though. Although we were seated right away, it was very difficult to get the server's attention for just about anything. Added to that, she didn't appear to be fluent in English, so that caused another issue with communicating effectively. The food, however, did make up for it. It tasted great, and the pricing was very reasonable.
I just moved into the area and this place is a great wine bar/Mediterranean restaurant. Had a bottle of wine with a friend and tried the hummus, lamb kabobs, and chicken kabobs. The hummus wasn't anything too special but the kabobs were cooked great, seasoned well, and hit the spot. I will definitely be coming back!
My boyfriend (Turkish) and I have tried every Turkish restaurant in SF and agree this ranks in our top choices for food and price. Mezze platter was amazing, every single item made fresh and tasting outstanding. Kebabs, Lentil soup, and Kunife all highly recommended! Great mix of Turkish flavor and fun wine bar! Highly recommend!
The food was yummy as usual, but this time the service was sub-par. Our waiter kept asking us if we were "still working on that," and he almost took my plate away while I'd put my fork down to sip my wine. There were two parties of four waiting to be seated, but all the four-tops were taken anyway; grabbing our table wouldn't have helped. He stopped by 3 or 4 times while we were trying to talk and enjoy our meal. As soon as we finished he brought us the check. We asked if we could have dessert. When the bill came again we had three different servers come and try to take the billfold away before we'd even had a chance to look at it. Briefly, we won't be going back.
I have been wanting to try Dunya for months now and I'm glad I found it. I took my parents out to eat there on a Saturday night and we were all pleased with our food and drink selection. We started with the Mezze Platter which was great! I had the lamb burger and my parents had the kabobs. My only piece of advice is that it does get loud and the bar area is close to the dining area. Not a quiet place for dinner on a weekend.
