Tuba Express - the sister restaurant of Tuba in the Mission - is a small restaurant with the same authentic Turkish food. The young woman who served me both times recommended wonderful Turkish wine, and several items on the menu. Each recommendation was terrific. I have been there in groups and as a twosome --- it is absolutely refreshing to be able to talk/hear everyone at the table. The mezza platter, falafel filled with feta, and their signature dessert are my favs (I am a vegetarian so I can't speak to the carnivore portion of the menu).
Very very good, authentic turkish experience!!!!
I’m so glad we found this restaurant! It was our first time eating there and we will be going back! The food was spectacular! Very authentic and the portions were generous for the price. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!
I really love this place. The food is fantastic, and affordable given the generous portion size. Service is great and very friendly. Certainly not fancy, but has a nice vibe that can be casual or date friendly.
Loved everything about this place. Amazing food and service. Wonderful spot to visit with friends. I will definitely go back - trying lunch next.
Small place with nice staff and authentic food
The waitstaff were very knowledgeable and helpful. The lamb kebab was absolutely amazing and the proportions were excellent (not too much just right).
Super fun neighborhood spot. Food very tasting at reasonable price, Turkish beer was fun to try. Hostess very friendly an accommodating
The food was great and the service excellent.
Tuba Express is a great, little restaurant that has a lovely European flavor! Jenni is the hostess and was very attentive to my friend and me and so was the waiter...Very delicious food. I have had the salmon dish twice now and the last time I was there I had one of the lamb dishes. The wine selection is wonderful. I highly recommend this lovely gem on California Street! The portions are generous. I have tried the Turkish tea and had the chocolate pyramid dessert which was scrumptious!!!
I have said before, and will say again, “this will be a treasured jewel.” The food is fresher than fresh, you get a ton of it, the best lamb chops ever, yes foodies, better than the iconic Kokkari. Turk Salad is a presentation of beauty, I could go on and on. Go in and try a little of everything, as everything is terrific!
Tuba Express will soon be a treasured neighborhood jewel. The food is so fresh, generous portions and the staff is warm and welcoming.
The cold mezze platter is great. The grilled lamb chops, FOUR to an order, with beautiful rice & salad all on one platter, for 24.00!! Any entree can be shared.
Cannot brag enough about Tuba, visited them 4 times in May and each time wonderful.
Great food & service. Ambience: feels like you're in the Grand Bazaar.
We were pleasantly delighted with Tuba Express. The falafel and hummus were the best I’ve had in a long time and everything else we had was delicious, too. What I liked the best was how comfortable I felt at the restaurant. It’s family run and you can sense the care that everyone gives to the food and service. I also love that they’re open through the afternoon. Tuba Express is a wonderful addition to the neighborhood.
A true neighborhood gem. It was the perfect place for a Sunday dinner with out-of-town guests. We had an excellent dinner. The kebabs, lamb chops, and Tuba salad were all delicious. We also shared the special dessert with shredded filo and sweet cheese. It was unusual and we will return to baklava next time. The service was attentive and friendly but not intrusive. We tried the Turkish mineral water--delightful! We will be back.
We had an early dinner and were seated in the back. As we started out as the only diners, it was very quiet for a while. The food looked and tasted great. We had shrimp, lamb kebab, bean salad appetizer, cheese roll appetizer, an unusual baked cheese with syrup dessert, and wines. The service was friendly and attentive. Tuba is a good general-purpose restaurant offering interesting food are a reasonable price.
I like this place as the price is right and the food is good.
This is a cozy place and was just perfect for our early evening dinner. The food, service and ambiance were all first rate. We had the mixed grill for two. Rarely have I had a mixed plate where EVERYitem was so tasty and wonderfully prepared. We will be going back again soon. That says it all doesn't it?
Loved, loved, loved the presentation and the taste. Authentic and delicious! Must save room for the baklava!
Good food at a good price in a very nice place. How sweet it is.
Everything was great until the end. Our server never gave us the cream for our tea we asked for and it took forever to get our check. We did not get great seats for our theater as it was first come. I almost gave them only 4 stars but I would come here again
Food and service are fantastic. We loved our meal. Will be going back.
The service was outstanding. Before serving us a wine we got to taste it. They gave a special dessert to my niece who had never had Turkish food before. It was a fun and delicious evening.
Wonderful I love lamb Shish Kebab and combo appetizer plate , server really polite , music is cool , hard liquor I love list
