Thanks for the awesome feed back Bobby. We are trying our hardest to get more heaters, the colder it gets the harder it becomes. If you make a reservation give me a call I will make sure we get you a table under the covered patio where it is super warm. Thank you

I'm glad I came here so I can have a comparison between this restaurant and the one closer to me in Pasadena. The service is much superior here. Parking is easy to find. The manager Curtis was super friendly and spent time explaining the new app to me. The food server Katelyn was friendly and explained how the QR code menu worked. The food was tasty and appetizing. I felt safe with the way the tables are spread out. I have no complaints at all. Good job, True Food Kitchen El Segundo!

Responded on November 17, 2020

Thank you Mr. Kwong. It was a pleasure serving you. Next time you decide to visit our Pasadena location ask for Justin Chavez, he is our General Manager of that location his level of hospitality is some of the best I have ever seen. If you ask for him I know he will take care of you with above and beyond service. Thanks again for the great review.

This restaurant has adapted to the new Covid rules, by making such a lovely setting outdoors around a working fountain. All tables are sanitized and all services are masked and face-shielded. Menus are now accessed by scanners in your phone, so dirty menus are a thing of the past. Paying the bill is also on your phone thru their app. So easy, so fast, so clean!

The food is always so fresh and so delicious. The wait staff is so friendly and helpful. True Food Restaurant has mastered healthy and delicious eating in the most taste-tempting way.

Last minute decision to go out to dinner and found a table at True Food Kitchen. With tables outside at The Pointe, with heaters, we were very comfortable. Service was outstanding and the food didn’t disappoint: edamame wontons we’re a great start to the meal. Our only complaint is that we wanted more of them. Ordered Salmon, Pizza and a sweet potato grain bowl for entrees and all were delicious.

It was a busy night and the hostess accidentally forgot to seat my husband and me. When she recognized her error, she apologized and immediately ushered us to a table. No worries. We understood that these things sometimes happen. However, to make up for it, we were offered an appetizer and dessert on the house. Cool!
