Food is consistently great quality, well prepared and tasty. Service was erratic, but other servers saw the slow service and assisted.

Food is delicious and there are plenty of options to choose, my concern would be about the portions. I don't find them big enough.

I have been to this location multiple times, the food is usually quite good. However in this instance the Pad Thai was bland and without flavor. Definitely will give them another try but hoping quality is not slipping.

We always go to this restaurant and have tried all desserts. Great experience, but when you get to the dessert, there is nothing good to pick but the flourless chocolate cake. I do not recommend any of the other desserts. Also, this restaurant is very cold. wear your jacket!

I usually love True Food Kitchen but unfortunately on this trip the waiter messed up my order. He didn’t write down what I ordered then repeated back the wrong thing to me - which I corrected. When our food came it was not what I had ordered. At this point I was hungry & didn’t want to waste the food so I didn’t send it back. Please have your waiters write down the orders!!

Very healthy options and seasonal menu items, so there's something new every once in a while. I had been several times for breakfast, but I was just as impressed with dinner. Even the 14-year-old liked the pizza.

We enjoyed a good lunch--the chopped salad and the turkey burger. True Food also boasts nice coffee and teas. Service is competent. One gripe--it is quite noisy inside. Luckily the weather was cooperative so we could sit outside--much more pleasant. I'm sure I'll visit again--it is a good and reliable lunch spot.

Have been to several True food kitchens and this one ranks lowest. Food was ok but portions were smaller than at other TFK locations i have been to in the past. To be specific i am referencing the Curry order that 3 of us ordered. Parking was a problem and got forced to valet park with no restaurant validation.

We visited on an exceptionally cold day in Houston. However, it was colder inside the restaurant than on the outside. We were told several times that they were trying to adjust the heat, to no avail. We were there for a business meeting and by the end of our meeting we were all feeling sick and our feet were frozen. I frequent this restaurant often and was very disappointed in the management and saddened that my business associates had to experience severe cold conditions inside a restaurant.

The food was OK. True Food Kitchen is consistent. The coffee is terrible and tastes like instant coffee. The Mediterranean cauliflower was soggy and seemed to have too much of an acidic taste. You could not taste the harissa or dill at all. The Dashi ramen bowl had some flavorful taste but was lacking. I got the bowl with tofu, and it had an excellent char to it. However, the broth was flat and had too much oil. Plus, despite the dish being scalding hot, the soup was lukewarm. Overall it was just OK and far too overpriced for average food.

I was not impressed with the portion of my plates of food that was served. I have come in the pass and always had left overs. I guess that it’s the chef

Seasonal salad was good but slightly under seasoned and the grilled chicken (which I added ) was dry.

The flourless chocolate cake was fabulous!

Noise level was crazy loud at lunchtime. I wouldn’t go back at peak of lunchtime again.

Me and my wife would out with a couple of friends for a special date night!! We had been to True food kitchen before but it was our first time to the Galleria location. The food, service and atmosphere were awesome!! Everything here is super healthy and tastes great!! I had the Spicy panaga curry and my wife had the quiona burger both tasted amazing. I would also try the kale guacamole it was great!! We will definitely be back. Our server Rebecca was awesome as well.
