Citysearch Editorial Review. Turkish food is both hard to make right and hard to find--a real shame for locals, as the pan-Mediterranean flavors benefit immensely from the kind of super-fresh ingredients for which California is known. That's why it's exciting to report that the food at Tuba, in addition to being authentic and inexpensive, is also delicious. From the sigara boregi, cigar-shaped rolls of phyllo with feta and spinach inside ($7), to the perfectly cooked, incredibly tender lamb chops ($22), it's hard to go wrong. The staff, in true Turkish fashion, is wonderfully friendly and hospitable, sitting to chat with patrons and offering honey-drenched baklava to go with an intensely rich cup of Turkish coffee. The atmosphere is warm and romantic, with deep red walls and dark wood, but even in a less-inviting space, the kindness of the staff would still make diners feel right at home. Tuba's reasonable prices and tasty food should make it a reliable winner for the neighborhood, but it's worth seeking out for non-Missionites as well.
Great Place for Turkish Food!!!!!.
I planned a dinner for 26 people at Tuba for my birthday and it was so amazing!! We had such a great time. The restaurant created Pre Fix menu for my guests and even printed a bday menu for each guest. We basically ate everything you see on the menu for a really great price. Even though everything we delicious - my favorite was the Icli Kofte and the Lamb Kebab.
The restaurant is currently BYOB! They let you bring your choice of champagne, beer and wine.
