As a starter we had kale guacamole, humus , and Edamame Dumplings with nice breads. Very original and nicely presented. Very light and Nothing was loaded in calories. After... More

True Food Kitchen has a fresher and more raw take on food, ingredients and cooking. The look and feel is modern, which is a bit cold, but the overall experience is worth it.

Our niece recently graduated from high school and I asked her where she wanted to eat. She couldn'tdecide with all of the end of year projects she had to complete so based on her palate, I choose this place for her. Their healthy selection of vegan, gluten free and vegetarian choices was my main draw. I wasn't sure if our... More

Chia seed pudding with the crunchy coconut on top is fantastic Normally I go for the chocolate, but after sampling all their desserts ( all good ) the CSPudding is the best. Must be relatively healthy as well ( I hope, even with some sugar in it ) I get it every time I go there I could eat every... More

We were going to go to the restaurant next door. High price steak house but the seating would have been an hour or so. True Food Kitchen was able to sneak us in with only a 20 minute wait (well worth it). The food was healthy and the taste was exquisite. My wife and I were pleasantly surprise and would... More

Honestly, this is one of my favorite restaurants in South OC. It's healthy, fresh, clean, and the staff is always friendly. My wife and family come here often because it's so close and convenient. After you get done eating, you can always walk it off in Fashion Island.

First of all the food was excellent! My summer blend salad was delightful tasty and crunchy with grilled cauliflower and asparagus being the main ingredients. The outdoor patio is wonderful and the indoor restaurant is quite charming. A great place for a healthy business lunch but do make reservations ahead.
