Love their food!! The best vegan restaurant ...

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

This was the most amazing food ever! I am making a lot of it at home from the cookbook and am so happy with the results. We try to make everything from scratch including dressings and these are wonderful. The lavender lemon aid is one of our favorites. Give this a try if you are just starting out as a... More

I'm a vegetarian so researched the restaurants close to where I was staying in Costa Mesa and found this one which had great reviews. Went there for lunch one day and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was friendly, the restaurant clean and the food delicious. The menu choice is quite adequate with plenty to choose from. I had a chilli... More

Visited our friend living in the area after our wedding and he took us here. We ordered half the dishes on the menu and had a vegan feast! Some of the best tasting food on our vacation to California. The tacos were so amazing you'd think you were eating in Mexico. The nachos are better than the real thing, possibly... More
