Average Indo-Sri lankan food

True food is conveniently located at white sands beach admist the buzz of boracay. However the food was just average. recommend other places if you not very keen for Indian food.

I think most Indian will not claim this to be real indian food. Some diches dont come close. For example their Butter Chicken. It taste more like Tikka Massala then the nice classic that I have eaten worldwide and in India

Family of 5 had lunch upstairs, great ambience and view, attentive service. We had Rohan josh that was nice.. Would've liked some butter chicken but it was unavailable so we had a mild chicken dish for the kids that was bland and uninspiring, the chicken masala was ok. Man bread was well made and raita was good as well. If... More

We enjoyed our meal of the authentic Sri Lankan cuisine! The curries were so delicious! You must get the samosas! The kefir chia drink saved my stomach from drinking the night before :) We had great service, meal came on time and yes it is pricey but totally worth it! We came back during the week and went to a... More

The setting is lovely with low tables and comfy cushions. Upstairs has a great view over the beach. There are lots of waiting staff who are very friendly and helpful however that's where the pleasantness ends. We waited nearly an hour for food and when it came it was really average. The vindaloo lacked spice and the madras was greasy... More

This restaurant looked so nice when we passed that we went in and sat upstairs on the pillows, the view from there is amazing! Ordered a mango lassi and some very delicious apetizers, all very good. The bread we had was really yummy. Go there for sunset to enjoy the view!

We were only going to have main meals but after having a look over the menu there was no way we were leaving without trying the starters and we were not left... More

We decided to eat here after walking along the beach. It looked clean and one of the diners at the restaurant told us the food was amazing. We sat upstairs overlooking the water and gave it a go. You can also eat on the beach if you wish. The menu is first rate and the food we ate was totally... More

Been in Boracay 7 weeks and eaten out a lot so know what to expect. This was recommended by a guest where we are staying and I was dubious after reading the reviews here as I normally only eat in places with good reviews on here. Sat upstairs which was really nice but there were only two other couples there... More
