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

To meet friends from the East Bay and South Bay, we picked Tuba. Not a big menu and not repetitive of other Turkish popular restaurants. Good flavors and interesting choices. Good Turkish wines and they are good about letting you taste first. The salad which is like a Greek Salad only more tasteful was huge. We really enjoyed the meal.... More

This place was spot on from the moment we walked in, we were greeted, immediately, seated and offered wine. The server, who was so helpful with choosing a glass of wine, brought me tastes.(HE OFFERED TO BRING ME TASTES!!) He was friendly and not at all condescending when we struggled with the pronunciation of menu items.( let's face it, service... More

The food and service here was outstanding. Best dolmas I've ever had in my life. I ordered a Turkish tea at the end: I won't ruin the surprise, but you should do it. We ordered a little bit of everything, and the shrimp appetizer was probably our favorite. We were a table of 2, but saw several groups having a... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
