Low seating and an amazing view give this restaurant a very unique feel. The only thing that lets this restaurant down is that the waitresses do not write the order down which results in them getting the order wrong. We visited this restaurant twice and on both occasions ordered the same dishes which were different on both nights. The food... More

This restaurant has great Indian food. It's especially great because it's so hard to find vegetarian food in the Philippines. But what makes this restaurant truly stand out is that it has a great view of the beach, especially at sunset.

Travelled the Philippines and this was my favourite meal in the 5 weeks island hopping. I'm British so I love a good curry and this was it. The only thing I would change is that meat is on a bone is rather not have it on the bone. It is more pricey than other places in Boracay but for the... More

Being an Indian and having tasted the food being served in True Food, I can safely vouch for the restaurant and its food. Its truly Indian in taste and served the way its usually served back in India. Its tough to find vegetarian food in Philippines and if you are a veggie or a vegan, and happen to visit Boracay,...

Truth be told True food turned me to Indian cuisine a decade ago and it's even better now! If you guys want ambience and great Indian food by the Beach this is the place to go!

The atmosphere was awesome, as True food is a beachfront restaurant. Wouldn't really call the service slow. The one who waited on me was very friendly and knew the ingredients of their dishes very well. She was able to recommend which dishes are vegan. Luckily they have a fresh raw salad on the menu. It had a nice spicy tamarind... More

The prices aren't cheap, but you can taste the quality of the food. The curry had so many layers of flavor- complex but very very good! Their breads are good too. The ambiance is very relaxing specially on the second floor which has a great view of the ocean and has a nice cool breeze. The service may be slow,... More

This spot used to be so popular in the 90s. Change in management has made service extremely slow. I've come here a few times and even if the restaurant wasn't half full, the dishes would take about 45 minutes to an hour to serve. It's disappointing because the food is quite good and it's prime beachfront setting is ideal.

My partner and I loved the atmosphere and interior of the upstairs of true food, we came here once for food and again just for drinks. Food was nice but average and not as flavourful as expected but you can't beat watching the hum of busy white beach from your own gold cushion :)
