As usual, the food is good, you can hear yourself talk and the service is fast, friendly and great. Many servers take part in it- working together. The tablecloth is cleaned off between courses- a detail I always appreciate in a restaurant. Portions are generous.
Everything was wonderful except the eggplant dish I had was undercooked. The eggplant was hard in the middle. But the rest of the food service and ambiance was delightful.
Turkish coffee is the bomb.
Fantastic appetizers. We have tried many, but they Tuba Sampler covers all the bases. Their lamb is out of this world! Their Turkish wines are limited, but I wouldn't know the difference to be able to judge.
Service was disappointing. Long wait time (>30 minutes) despite reservation. No attention paid to mitigate for the long delay-- eg. we were not offered water as we waited, or a glass of wine, or an appetizer on the house. In fact, when we were finally seated noone came to take our order or tell us the specials (I had to ask myself about the specials) and, during our meal, the waitress asked us to get up and push our tables to the side to seat another group next to us. Despite me expressing we were unhappy about the wait, the restaurant staff did nothing to make us feel better, except at the very end of the meal giving us a coupon for $20 off the next visit (I will not be returning there.) . While the food is quiet delicious, paying high prices and wasting time on such a sub-par experience does not make for a pleasant evening. I was so, so disappointed and do not recommend this place to other diners for a dine-in experience.
Have been dining at Tuba for quite a few years now and every time is a great experience. Great service, excellent Turkish food, and always leave very happy.
It was my wife’s birthday and she loves to have dinner at Tuba! The service is always exceptional from the entire staff! The food is excellent as well! They made it very special bringing out a beautiful decorated plate with a cake for her! Thank you as always for the great experience!
The food was good. Really good actually, but maybe not quite living up to the hype. Or maybe my table ordered the wrong things... we all felt the food was a bit heavy, but maybe that is typically Turkish? I'd definitely go back to try a few other options. The service was rushed and we were given the check the same time our dessert arrived and our servers inquired twice more if we needed anything else... clearly hurrying us along as they had a wait for tables.
This is one of my GO TO restaurants. I live in SF and am always drawn to it. The classic simple salad is, by far, the best in SF. the rest of the menu is standard....but quite good.
As always, the service was great, the meze tasty and the lamb divine! We shared a lovely bottle of wine with our food, the servings of which were ample for sharing.
Went for our anniversary and loved it. Have been wanting to go for a long time and glad we finally did. The cold sampler plate is awesome!
The hummus and phiilo dough stuffed with feta cheese appetizers were very tasty. Also recommend the shrimp, beef and lamb kebob and the beef and lamb kebob wrapped in lavash bread. Because it was a BD celebration they serve this yummy chocolate dessert and sing happy birthday to you! Very cozy dining.
The food is so good and tasty. I was amazed how nice and friendly the staff is there. They really try to please you. Overall, it was a great experience..
Very loud and noisy restaurant. Good food though!
Food was AMAZING. We came on Christmas Eve. Had a reservation for 12 people. Not one sad face. Food was fresh, delicious, and no one felt like they overpaid for anything. It’s a true gem!!
I chose this place without knowing much about it.
We needed a place with vegetarian options and it proved to be a real find! We loved the tasting plates, and the service was fantastic. I will definitely return and would have no qualms about recommending the place to friends.
Tuba gets even better with time. The staff is super-friendly and the traditio0nal menu is always yummy.
Very cozy place with caring staff and fantastic food. I just returned from Germany, and it has a touch of the German "Gemütlichkeit" that I always enjoy.
Staff was genuinely cordial, helpful, attentive, KIND. The full meze sampler plate was outstanding. I would return for that one anytime! Skewered lamb with vegetables was lovely with dipping sauce. Desserts were all fun for my guests - chocolate pyramid and shredded filo with cheese, so very tasty. Pomegranate juice was refreshing. Mint tea with fresh lemon on a beautiful small saucer was charming. Food presentation was festive, a treat for my guests.
The food is always delicious, and great service.
Food was amazing. We tried each of the two Turkish rosés and they were delicious. I had no idea that Turkey made good wines. The server was incredible. She was so friendly and engaging. She really made us feel welcome.
Outstanding food with unpretentious service. The lamb shank on Fridays and saturdays is the best dish ever.
I celebrated my birthday at Tuba with a group of friends. Sharing mezzes and entrées was great, the waitress suggested the right amount of food, and everyone was happy at the end. However, the restaurant was packed with groups and very loud, so this place is not great to have a deep conversation.
Excellent food and service!
Love this place. Most Best food and services in SF
Excellent service. Very good food. Nice ambiance.
I have been to Tuba many times. The food is consistently outstanding as is the service and presentation. The portions are large and healthy. I would like to try their unique desserts but I never have room!
Awesome food! Awesome place. Great service. Delious food and charming set up
It's The Best turkish restaurant ! Don't hesitate anymore!
