My girlfriend and I went in to true food after seeing lots of good reviews and they did not disappoints. First off, the view is amazing, the restaurant ambiance is cozy and laid-back. Someone was celebrating a birthday beside our table but the partying was toned down-- they were cool and collected. Later we found out the group were yoginis... More

We love Indian food, really really much. About once a month we go out for dinner at one of the many Indian restaurants near us. We have also been to India as well, and ate like kings. The food served here is beyond bad, and not worth the price you pay. I could list a couple of main points why... More

Food was average, way too overpriced and even the drinks took at least 20 minutes to arrive. Only restaurant I'd seen cockroaches in throughout my months stay travelling around the Philippines. Girl serving us had absolutely no personality. Don't go there.

True Food was my first Indian food experience in my youth more than a decade ago and has been a true Boracay staple for years. I fell in love with Indian food because of this place! Having lived in Cambodia for 10 years, I was so excited to go back to it and revisit the flavors of my youth, but... More

We had food from here everyday for a week. Every visit to Boracay would mean a lunch or dinner here. Unfortunately, the food quality is inconsistent. One day its amazing, the next day you order the same thing, it would be okay. We ordered chicken 65 consistently and you can see the difference in quality everyday. One day its fresh,... More
