You know a place is great when, while you want to try other things on the menu...what you had last was so good, you wan tot keep ordering it. Native foods will never win any decor awards but their food is excellent all the time ...flavors are thought out and well tested, inventive, fresh and fun. There is no place... More

None of us are vegan or vegetarian but we were still able to eat a very satisfying meal. We went during the middle of the week around dinner time and the line was out the door. It moved relatively fast and we were able to get a table inside for our group of 4. We ordered saigon rolls, twister wrap,... More

If you walk up to this Native Foods and see a line of 6 or more people be prepared to have patience for the wait to order. The food is really good with many different options for even the picky eaters. Great people watching while you eat at this location. Peak times are crazy with parking.

I was excited to visit Native Foods for dinner as it fills the vegetarian / vegan niche. We were travelling in Anaheim for work, and made this one of our stops for dinner with a colleague. Perhaps it was the long drive and fatigue from work, but I found my experience underwhelming. The location was difficult to see from the... More

Yum. I come here once a week, usually for whatever's the special of the day (I'm always excited when it's the Oklahoma bacon cheeseburger, with fake bacon, fried pickles, sliced seitan and ranch on the side (I get it with sweet potato fries and chipotle sauce). Can't go wrong with the lavender lemonade and watermelon fresca (combined, trust me, it's... More

I have been a couple of times to this café-style eatery. It's informal but fast and tasty - where everything described as "chicken" or "bacon" is actually meat-free. The teas and fruit juices are great, as are the sweet potato fries. It's different from anywhere else that I've eaten in Costa Mesa so gets extra marks for that alone.
