The restaurant is beautiful and open, very inviting. There are ample gf items offered. My wife has Celiac disease. She ordered the gf lasagna bolognese ans could not say enough about how good it was. Service was excellent and very conscious of gf needs.

This was a great find for our family. All the desserts were gluten free! It is rare to be able to eat dessert out at a restaurant. Menu was clearly marked, gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, and vegan. Staff was super knowledgable and the items. And, the food was very good.

True foods is always great with celiac disease. I have eaten here multiple times and have never gotten sick from it. Their gluten free marked items are prepared separately from gluten. They are very knowledgeable and careful!

Came for brunch and was blown away by the number of GF, DF, and vegan options. Staff were kind and knowledgeable. The butternut squash soup was particularly delicious. GF DF pizza also good. Didn’t get sick either! Will definitely return!

Staff were so nice and tried so hard to accommodate me, but two out of three Nima tests for different iterations of the same dish came back positive for gluten. Maybe my Nima was too sensitive, or the dish was prepared where they make their pizza dough, but I didn’t feel comfortable eating there, despite good experiences at other True Food Kitchen locations.

Excellent food and all gluten free, dairy free, and meat free items are clearly marked on menu. Menu changes seasonally. Wait staff was very knowledgeable and asked if it was a gluten allergy. When I ordered the spaghetti squash casserole without the cheese, the waitress asked if I would like to add their homemade almond milk ricotta, which I appreciated! Delicious, fun ambiance, and the place was packed. Good cocktails too and they change seasonally as well.

OMG THIS PLACE IS A HIDDEN GEM of this app bc it was crowded but their food is AMAZING. Totally celiac safe, this is the kind of place that knows what they are doing. All the staff were knowledgable and had menu items marked. However they can also make other items gluten free through modification. They have gluten free pizza crust and pita as well as buns and bread. This was our first time there but true food kitchen has already made it to my list of all time favorite restaurants (which is EXTREMELY selective let me assure you). they have a ton of dairy, vegetarian, vegan and of course gluten free options. But whether you are a die-hard carnivore who believes vegans are a blight on this planet to an exclusively raw food proponent, there is something at true food kitchen for you. I had the phanaeng curry with chicken and a chance to sample the entrees of my dining mates, the Moroccan chicken and inside out quinoa burger. We also ordered the cauliflower appetizer I forget what the exact name was. All three were excellent. I would order the curry again right now even though I am so full I doubt I’d be able to keep anything down to be frank. Anyways phanaeng curry was an infinity-out-of-ten, the Moroccan chicken was excellent as well, I didn’t think it was good as the curry but still the kind of dish that changes your life. The quinoa burger was phenomenal as well. The cauliflower starter had some sort of sauce and it was partially blackened and on the same level as the curry, which again has made it to my list of all time favorites. Finally, as the culmination to a heavenly, otherworldly experience, we had for dessert the squash pie and a blueberry muffin with ice cream. The squash pie was amazing. Enough said. I wanted to rewind my life after I ate it so I could eat it again. And again. And again. We will 100% be back, probably tomorrow for brunch if I can convince my family to go. If you haven’t tried this place, you HAVE TO GO. there are so many menu options in all different sorts of cultures and cuisines and as a celiac it’s amazing that places like this exist.

Been to several True Food Kitchen locations and enjoyed meals without any issues. The menu is based on an anti-inflammatory diet. Scrumptious seasonal menu with many GF and DF options.

When we come to Oakbrook this is our favorite place to eat! They have so many gluten free and vegan options. Even if something isn’t listen as gluten free on the menu they can often modify it to make it gluten free.

I went with another celiac for dinner and we both got teriyaki chicken and asked the server to make a note that we both have celiac. We both got super sick. Definitely glutened and very disappointed because this is supposed to be an allergy friendly place and that’s why we picked it for dinner :(
