Loved the view of the ocean from our seat

Loved their cozy seats which had the best view of the ocean only at True food. Their food was really good we had couscous and two different curries. My husband always says that we will definitely eat there again whenever we get back to Boracay :)

We ordered pita with falafel. The bread was dry, and the falafel didn't have any taste. Homemade? The Dhal linses were not to interesting either, too much curry. But good location.

I've always wanted to eat at True Food. Finally did last week:) Samosa, and Chicken Biryani were amazing. I would definitely come back to eat there.

Thought you can't go wrong with indian restaurant but it's not true. It's two storey restaurant, more of a lounge area upstairs with low tables and big yellow pillows to seat on. The food wasn't great, potatoes with cauliflower were too sour, prawns biryani barely had any prawns, naan was good, sri lankan chicken didn't taste bad either. However it... More

So I went to this place highly recommended and tried their mutton Biryani. It was disappointing since I have tasted better mutton biryani in Manila. Even my friend who recommended the place said that this time around he didn't like the food. Maybe they're just having a bad run..

WE normally avoid Indian food when away from the UK as we have been spoilt for many years with the quality of food served close to home. We had however been told about the seating arrangement at True Food and the quality of the food on offer.. In both we were not disappointed. The sitting is on cushions scattered around... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the restaurants sister business, true home hotel. Such a nice beachfront view! Cozy wooded atmosphere and great staff. The staff was very friendly, always attentive and making sure that we were satisfied. The lamb biriyani was very good and so was the chicken masala. Happy we spent many Delicious meals here!

Lamb Biryani was tolerable, chicken masala did not live up to my standard/s for Indian cuisine… the chicken was not even chopped and these were served in big portions instead of small chunks… lastly, their seafood or fish curry was eeew…. sorry to be the bearer of bad reviews… first and last time that we'll set foot in this resto...

I found it odd walking down White Beach and watching people pass by this place. My wife and I love Indian food and never pass up the chance to try a new restaurant when we travel and were a little surprised at the lack of customers (usually a bad sign). Luckily for us the food was spot on. We tried... More
