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!
