Our first time to True Food Kitchen. It was really good. The wasabi dumplings were excellent. The turkey burger was very good, too, except it could have used a little more spice. It's not ground turkey, either, but a turkey cutlet, which was a very nice touch. The turkey was moist and juicy. The lasagne was also excellent. We had a good meal and will definitely go back.

This was probably the worst meal I've ever had in New Orleans. The service was incredibly slow. The food was extremely over priced. It took 45 minutes for us to receive water. By the food came we were all starving. The whites of my eggs were not cooked and slimy, and my husbands plate had a long hair on it. We received no discount or anything.

Ended up walking out after 45 minutes of waiting on our drinks. Manager was seating people and left us waiting at door for a while and as we were contemplating trying somewhere else he finally realized there were people at the door but had zero sense of interest or urgency. We knew that was a bad sign but decided “how bad can it be” lol, BAD. Server looked consistently confused, slow, and apathetic but was really surprised when we decided to leave?! Dude.
