Expensive but good

I really liked mushroom pizza. The dough was great. Seitan pizza was alright. I wanted to try their vegan burgers but it was always unavailable. The price is a bit expensive for vegan menus but you can at least get student discount

Pros: You can get some non-vegan menus vegan

Cons: Vegan menus are more expensive than non-vegan

Took 1,5h to get food

They have vegan pizza, kebab and burger which is quite nice. When ordering we were told that it might take up to an hour for the food which was fine by us. In the end it took 1,5h and people who came after us (also ordered pizza, not burger) received their food well before us. Pizza was good, though.
One pizza is roughly 16‚ā¨

Pros: Tasty pizza

Cons: Waiting time

Cozy and great brunch!

I've been here few differebt times for different themed saturday brunches and Tuba has not disappointed me! There are also several vegan choices in the a la carte menu. Food has been great every time! The atmosphere is super cozy and relaxed, mismatch plates and mugs and retro textiles. Definitely going to go again when I visit Oulu next time! Check the brunch dates and themes from their website/FB. Reservation recommended for the brunches!

Pros: great brunch, great atmosphere, friendly service

Cons: Brunches are popular - best make a reservation

Nice vegan options

I went to Tuba casually by passing by, and I've been amazed! The ambiance is pretty relaxed and friendly (there has been a concert following my dinner). I had a seitan burger with mixed fried root veggies (normal fries and sweet potatoe fries also available - with vegan mayo or a√Įoli). The food was good and it was a very generous and fulfilling plate : just what I needed!
And very important detail : they've got oat drink for your coffee or tea!

Pros: Location and ambiance, Tasty food in copious amount

Cons: Slightly pricey , A pity it's not fully vegan
