I was relieved to find a restaurant that caters to healthy eating lifestyles - as I have several dietary restrictions these days. It was nice to be able to select from a menu that had a lot of options for me, and that the kitchen staff was willing to adapt a dish for me. The food was very fresh and very good. (I had the antioxidant bowl and a fantastic sparkling green tea made with pomegranate and something else I'd never heard of, but it was so yummy and refreshing!) It's nice to know that I can go out to a nice restaurant for dinner and actually have choices that won't throw me off course.

I love the Curry dish. It was recommended by the waiter. I cannot wait to go back and eat it again :-)

Restaurant food and atmosphere was good. Prices are really good and affordable. Staff was good. There was ample parking on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant can be hard to find if you end up on the wrong side of the building you have to walk around the building or navigate up and down the stairs to the other side of the building. More signage would be good.

I went with my friend. I had eaten at True Foods a few weeks ago and could not wait for a return visit.
My friend and I enjoyed the food so much. Our server recommended our selections.
We will return soon again. The service was fabulous. Made dining there absolutely enjoyable.

Waiter forgot one order and had to be reminded after the entree had already come out - there was no compensation for it either.

The service was great. But the noise level was at an all time high. Definitely not a place for people with anxiety. The food tasted great but the portions for the price were really small. Drinks were awesome! I would have given it a 5 overall but I chose 4 because it was incredibly loud and small food portions. I will however visit again.

Great night. Love coming here whether it’s a special occasion or just a casual lunch/dinner. For some reason our tea never made it to the table but other than that no complaints.

Location is great but I wasn't thrilled with the food. No bread as well, please, I'm skinny and there're healthy bread options out there. Music was a lil loud in my opinion for the level of general noise. Waitress was a 10, super courteous and attentive.

Our days of coming here regularly are over I am afraid. Burgers were soggy, cooked incorrectly according to order, and just didn't taste the same. Sweet potato sides were undercooked and yet somehow mushy. Dumplings were doughy and undercooked. Waiter was busy with a friend the whole time we were there. Just not going to be my go to place any longer and I am sad as I love their burgers, Margherita pizza and spaghetti squash usually.

One bowl (ancient grains) plus tofu and a tiny cup of soup cost over $22. That was pre-tip and just tap water to drink. I was shocked.

The valet parking is a complete rip off. $8 to park in Houston is highway robbery.

Great ambiance, exceptional quality and taste of food. I usually get great service, but this time, it fell a bit short of my expectations. But it continues to be one of my favorite restaurants, particularly as a family place (since my family is pretty picky and we all have completely different tastes).
