Banking on healthy

I know I can always rely on Native Foods for a healthy, vegetarian dish. I had the Moroccan Bowl which had tofu, quinoa, grilled vegies, almonds and raisins. All very deliciously seasoned with Moroccan spices. A great combination of heat and sweet! It was especially fun, as I brought a friend... read more

I know I can always rely on Native Foods for a healthy, vegetarian dish. I had the Moroccan Bowl which had tofu, quinoa, grilled vegies, almonds and raisins. All very deliciously seasoned with Moroccan spices. A great combination of heat and sweet! It was especially fun, as I brought a friend, who had never been, and she loved it!

Vegetarian and alternative menu. Looked as though the food may have been substantial at first however after ordering and eating the dish, I was left feeling a need to order another dish to fulfil my needs.Drinks on offer were basically full of sugar, notably the teas. Went with water.

Such an interesting and welcoming restaurant/shopping space at The Camp. Service is friendly and helpful. Great vegan options, difficult to choose what to order! Nice to have light salads, as well as heartier meals available. Tried the chicken avocado club sandwich. It was so good I was worried I was eating the real thing! Fake thick-cut bacon was the best...

Native foods is an awesome place to visit ... It is the best vegan joint. Awesome salads and their vegan chicken wings are really delicious. Definitely a place to visit. My co workers who are not vegan love it as well. A ton of variety on the menu ... Great desserts ...... Love it ...

We enjoyed a nice vegan dinner. You order at the counter and they bring out the food in no time. Good variety. Native Foods also offers a tasty beer selection. Give it a try. From burgers to bowls, everybody will find something on this menu.

I was really looking forward to trying this based on reviews I have seen of the restaurant, we did not care for it, not sure if it was just a bad day or what. We had two of the chicken sandwiches that are their most popular, they were ok. The macaroni and cheese for kids was over cooked, the noodles... More

As a native american from Oklahoma, I'm a little offended that you would name a burger that is not a part of our culture. But guess you need to make sales.

I've been to many Native Food restaurants and this one in Costa Mesa is the most unique with it's layout and design. It is in a round building. Outdoor seating is available. Parking is not easy, but they do have valet parking during lunch which helps. I always get the Portobello-Sausage Burger with Sweet Potato Fries, as it is my... More

I tried to order lunch without oil in it. The manager told me that pretty much everything on the menu has added oil, all the sauces, salad dressings, even the soups. I could not even get the side of grilled vegetables without oil, because they pre-grill them in the morning with oil. I had the Azteca salad without dressing which... More
