True Food Kitchen is a great little restaurant, but it gets really busy. My husband and I often order take out for dinner. We love the spaghetti squash casserole and the kale salad. Yum!

This is a fun place, open concept seating, high industrial décor and a fun bar. You can sit at a table or sit by the bar. The service is good,, not fast but the food is worth it.

Yummy, healthy food. I had the Panang Curry w/Chicken and it was delicious, nice crunchy veggies in it and a tangy sauce that made my eyes water as a good curry should. Good range of interesting drinks to try. Was very impressed with True Food and will plan to visit the one local to us in San Diego soon

This is my favorite- Go to spot... Great food, wonderful ambiance, especially outside open seating! Pizza's, drinks, curry, kale salad, veggie crudites and hummus with gluten free bread are all a must!

On a recent trip to Newport Beach, my husband and I had lunch at True Kitchen.

At that time he had tried to dine there... More

Do not expect gourmet cuisine... Just delicious healthy food. Ambience is average unless you sit by the fire pit. Great selections of drinks! enjoy!

For us health conscious diners, there could not be a better restaurant. Reasonably priced with a wide range of healthy items to choose from with several unique dishes. We enjoyed eating outdoors.

Whether you are into healthy food or not, this restaurant is fantastic for everyone. We go often, and always love it. Be sure to order the onion tart for an appetizer. We get it every time. We used to eat wheat but are now gf and have ordered it both ways. Both delicious. Most items can be modified to be... More
