TFK is perfect for healthy eats when going out with friends who'd want different cuisine. The menu here offers Vegan and Vegetarian as well as meat and fish. I personally love the inside out Quinoa burger (with sweet potatoes). My only objection would be that serving sizes seem to be smaller for take-out. And, since the menu is pricey that to me is a real let down.

Creative fresh food in a beautiful courtyard setting with indoor or outdoor seating. Staff is friendly, but very professional and knowledgeable about the menu. We will be back for this treat!

My wife and I had only three days in Pasadena and after discovering True Food Kitchen on our second day, we ate there twice! It is located in Old Town Pasadena and is very popular. However, we were seated quickly - without reservations - as we arrived around 6 - 6.30pm; by 7.00pm the restaurant was very lively and energetic. There is both inside and outside seating and a bar with an attractive decor. Despite being busy, there is more than sufficient room between the tables that you don’t feel as if you are encroaching on other people’s conversations! The wait staff on both occasions were very friendly, helpful and very attentive. After searching the menu, with its many mouthwatering offerings all reasonably priced, we decided to share the Edamame Dumplings, served in a light, flavorful broth, and the Brussels Sprout and Wild Mushroom pizza. Both items were delicious, so much so we repeated the order on our second visit; why change a good thing if you don’t have to! We took turns facing the open-kitchen, which was a novel experience seeing the staff preparing the food. On our first visit my wife ordered a Farmers Market Sangria and I ordered Ginger Margarita, which were OK. There are about 20 True Food Kitchen locations throughout the US. We were delighted to discover that in early 2018 they are opening a new True Food Kitchen in Boca Raton. Florida, close to where we live, so, we can enjoy the experience of really delicious food whenever we like!

Just because it's healthy doesn't mean it doesn't taste good...because it does! I ordered the teriyaki quinoa bowl which consisted of broccoli, heirloom carrot, bok choy, mushroom, brown rice, avocado, toasted sesame was delicious and filling. The Fennel Chicken Sausage pizza was also to die for. The crust was not too thick and not too thin. Meeting for lunch proved to be a loud and challenging time to talk but the food was the best. Located on Colorado it has street paid parking. Our server, Adriana was just as friendly and nice to us which made us feel very comfortable and relaxed in ordering the perfect lunch!

Right from the start, the service was amazing. Hoping his name was Alex was our main server. Started with the delious califlower app, kale salad and tatake (tuna) app. They let us get 2 halves of pizza and both were wonderful flavours. We had the lasagna, quinoa bowl with grilled salmon and a Teriyaki Bowl.. capping it off with a flourless brownie and pumpkin cheesecake. Wow. Wow. And the plans, details lighting, interior decor is amazing ...outdoor seating is just as incredible
