love this place

Raw and true. Great food. Ate with some friends who are locals. Definitely a happening spot. I had the curry and it was nice and spicy because i asked for it that way. Also had a ginger cocktail. Great. everyone else enjoyed their plates too.

I ate three meals at True Food Kitchen in 2 days. Does that mean I loved the food? Not really, but I was looking for something that was reasonably healthy, marked gluten-free, and quick. I was staying at the Island Hotel nearby and got takeout the first night. When I called to order they said it would be ready in... More

This is one of those "healthy restaurants" that make you think- why can't they all be like this? Broad menu, with everything from comfort food burgers to Kale in all it's glorious forms. A big bar area with TVs showing the football matches. in other words, something for everyone. Skinny health conscience bypes in yoga pants eating salads in the... More

I went here for lunch with my friend on a Monday afternoon, and it wasn't particularly crowded, and we were sat repetitively quick. We ordered, and it took around 30 min to get our food, which is way longer than usual. The manager came out and said one of their stations ran out of something, and to wait a bit... More

I took my wife here for here birthday and would recommend it as an excellent place to take a wife for a special occasion. The menu is unique and contains a variety of styles of food, all with excellent ingredients, prepared perfectly. However, the serving sizes are on the small side so order an appetizer or several drinks prior to... More

Eclectic, healthy menu. Food well prepared. Service timely and friendly. This is a happening place, sometimes a bit of a wait, especially for the patio.

I've been here once before and made a special point to come back during this visit to SoCal. I love the premise and the atmosphere. The food is great - healthy and organic, well prepared with a modern, appealing approach. We ordered the Sea Bass which was wonderful and the Moroccan chicken which was good but a tad dry in...
