Shabu-shabu
Our small, casual restaurant offers shabu-shabu (hot pot) and pho noodle soup made with the highest quality farm-fresh and organic ingredients. Organic meats, meats without added hormones or antibiotics, wild-caught seafood, four sauces, free refills for our organic hot pot veggies—it's a hot pot experience unlike any other. We make our broths, sauces, ice cream, and more in-house. If we can make it fresh, we do! We also have bowls and wraps, poke, smoothies and boba, as well as many gluten-free and vegan options. We may be small, but we create big flavors with a level of quality that is hard to find anywhere else.

Love this place but for what we like to eat there it is a bit on the higher end. I wish there was a rewards program of some sort. But again love this place and the food and that it is organic!

The food was great and we really enjoyed the whole experience. Sitting at an outside table during a busy time made it very difficult to get a server’s attention, but overall, we really enjoyed it and will be back!

My boyfriend and I have been coming here once a week for almost the past 3 1/2 months. It’s our favorite place. Great food, great service, and pretty good atmosphere. I’m always excited about the end of my weeks because I know I’m going to be dining at True Seasons with the best Pho in Orange County! ❤️❤️

I liked this place before, but service has always been really slow. This time service was slow (we were one of 3 couples in there) and the food was bad. We had to send out meat back and go up four tiers on the meet quality just to have it taste ok. For $30 a plate for a small order I would expect a lot better. Plus- service so slow. I like the owner but she kept having extended conversations with the wait staff while we were sitting there waiting for things two or three times. Sadly I think this will be my last visit here

Because the food is organic and oriented towards a healthy menu, this place deserves a lot of credit. And I did thoroughly enjoy much of the food. And it was in good size portions as well. I was a little troubled by seeing that we had to pay extra for broth. I thought that was a little bit chintzy. And, because it was lunch hour on a Sunday, the service was very slack. Like I couldn’t tell if my server was the bartender or the woman who came from the back. But after a while I kept having to yell and call for things that I wanted. Which was OK, I’m not that picky. My friends were disappointed. The other major problem, is that that type of restaurant is definitely not set up well for hot pot. The table felt cramped and I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to have to sit at the bar and reach across people to get your food from the pot. Nice idea, but it really doesn’t quite work. Still, I like the attempt, and the food it was quite good.

Food was good, but since I lac experience with this style eating I could have used some help from the staff. They were really too busy to give any instruction at all. We winged it, but for the price help would have been appreciated.

I'm still dumbfounded on how 4 servers were able to ignore us for so long when the place is arranged in such a way that everyone is sitting around them (even with a reservation). Food was fine, but service does not match the prices.

Thanks for being so great.

I love coming here every time I come here I get the same thing. This time I ordered a smoothie too. It was delicious it wasn’t too sweet and it didn’t taste too healthy it was perfect to have on a hot day driving home. I appreciate that I asked them for specific things and they were able to accommodate to me. I love coming here. Keep up the great work.

Diego was charming and attentive and runs this small restaurant with pride and professionalism. His personal touch makes you feel like you are important and welcome at his table. I love the quaint feel of this place with the eclectic music that gives this unique vibe to complement the great organic and healthy food.
A true gem and one of my favorite places to dine.

And, dont forget dessert as the banana coconut organic gelato is amazing and I understand that is made with great care byn Yesenia who is also so sweet and easily shares her kindness and superb service.

I’ve been coming here the past couple of month and I really enjoy the food here.
We get the vegan hotspot and we add a bowl of rice and my boyfriend and I share it. It’s super filling and we both leave with our stomachs full.

I am incredibly happy with the service I have gotten here, I had a little trouble the second time I came but the third time she made it up to us and we felt a lot better about going back to our favorite spot. We never eat out because we can never find an all organic restaurant and now that we have this is our go to every time.

Thanks for everything that you’ve done! Five stars.

Very interesting place. I was expecting a restaurant and it was more like a bar, but with food instead of alcohol. It was different but good and we will go back.
The workers were very friendly and helpful in trying to teach us how it all works!
Everything is fresh and healthy. The pop cycles are great and made fresh daily.
