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

With a beachfront location at Station 2, this is an easy restaurant to find. And what a find! This is Indian food prepared perfectly for the Western palate and equals the best Indian restaurants in my home town of Toronto, Canada. If you love Indian food or want to try it for the first time, this is a great choice.... More

If you're craving for some Indian food, this is the place to be. We ordered onion pakora and veg spring roll and we couldn't stop licking our fingers. It reminded us of the food back home in India. It came with tamarind and mango chutney, we were suprised that we could get such authentic food in Boracay! We also ordered... More

This is the place to go in Boracay for authentic Indian cuisine. The food is great and the service is top-notch, but the prices are steeper than most comparable establishments. The ambiance is also pleasant, but can get a bit hot during the summer since the place does not have air conditioning. Try the southern and northern sets if you... More
