We met 2 local friends here, and had such a good meal and a wonderful time. The best Turkish food we've had outside of Turkey! It was reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. We also had good wines along with our mezes.

Exceptional Turkish cuisine, efficiently served, attractively priced, with above average selection. Vegetarian and vegan dishes. Particularly enjoyed: Cevizli ezme cold appetizer or meze(outstanding), Mercimek corbasi salad, Falafel Salatasi salad, and Sebzeli Patican entree. While Kavaklidere Pendore red wine was pleasant enough it didn’t seem to have any particular taste worth trying again. Servers were a pleasure to work with. For... More

The food at Tuba was great! I tried Kuzu Sis, and Baklava & Cream Brule for desert. I really liked their Turkish coffee.

The best Mediterranean food I have tried. I love turkish food with all its spices and flavors. The meat is marinated to perfection and cut nicely! The Adana kebab is one of my favorites and salads are large and filling bursting with flavor! Turkish hospitality is always so warm and friendly! Wonderful staff. Good service.

We chose Tuba based on Yelp reviews and we were not disappointed. We were a party of 7, and each of us tried something different and loved what they ordered. The wait staff was very attentive and the service was excellent. Though we were not planning to order dessert , the waiter heard us drinking a toast to my MIL... More

Nice location on reasonably quiet street. If you're lucky you may find parking on the street right outside the door (we did)! The appetizers were great. Try the combo plate. Also the icli kifteh (like kibbeh) was very tasty. The complimentary bread was fresh and great. The main courses we tried were great. Names were all in Turkish so can't... More

The food, service and interpretation of the food we ordered was terrific. My husband and I had been to Turkey and experienced amazing food in every city we visited. We experienced it once again at Tuba (beautiful Lady) the other evening. Enjoy the warm and intimate Tuba as soon as you can. Thank you for being there when our Turkish... More

Get a reservation. We always try to find something different. This is it. The food is well prepared and very good. This was our first time having Turkish and we loved it. We'll go back.

After reading the many excellent reviews, I booked a table for two prior to my trip to San Francisco earlier this month. My father was born in Istanbul, and I grew up on Middle Eastern food in the home and have since made many Turkish dishes at home. We ordered the meze platter. The dolma..which we also call yalanchi...was only... More
