Ordered the following: Spaghetti squash- tested safe with NIMA Lasagne- NOT SAFE veggies/chicken/rice- tested safe with NIMA Flourless chocolate cake- NOT SAFE

So about 50 percent of the advertised GF items were NOT GF.

Amazing menu with many GF choices! GF pancakes, pizza crust, pita (!!!), hamburger buns. Food is fresh (herbs growing on site), modern, so many choices. DO NOT MISS this restaurant!! The menu online doesn’t reflect their expansive menu!

In town for a conference and pleasantly surprised to find this place was a grubhub delivery option given that NOLA is notoriously not-great for GF. Ordered dinner and a few add’l things to keep in the hotel fridge for later. Everything was great. The GF pita came warm and was very good with the hummus. Would def go back

We’re stayed in NOLA for a week and visited this place three times haha. Very hard to find gluten-free options in the area and this place is good. Recommend the strawberry margarita.

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 :(

We ate lunch here and I was excited about the many GF options clearly marked on the menu! The food was delicious and our server was very knowledgeable. When our meals were brought out they made a point to remind me that my husband’s meal was not GF and unsafe in case I was going to try a bite. We had an excellent experience.

Not dedicated, but everything was clearly marked. I went here twice, got the teriyaki quinoa bowl and the spaghetti squash casserole. Both were good. No issues after.

We loved the restaurant. My wife had the Korean Bowl; I had the Korean Steak, our daughter had the Chicken Parmesan. My wife has celiac disease; gluten is poison. The staff took exceptional care to ensure that there was no cross-contamination. They offered three GF deserts; we tried all three, and they were terrific! I'd highly recommend it. Great ambiance, wonderfully fresh ingredients, and tremendous service!!

This is a scratch made kitchen that can accommodate allergies. Menu is very well marked, servers are knowledgeable, allergy marked even on my bill so I know the kitchen saw it. Felt very safe and comfortable eating there. They even have GF pita for the hummus appetizer even though it’s not marked on the digital menu. Gluten free dessert available. I grabbed a gf/vegan squash pie to-go!

We stayed at a hotel not far from here and ate here 2x during our stay. Once at the restaurant, and once for takeout. Decent size gf menu, including some kids meals! They can even make the kids pizza gf. My celiac daughter wanted the kids chicken meal which came with soy sauce. I asked the waiter, and he said they make it gf in house. She had no issues with it. Food was excellent and the service was great as well.

The food was fresh and delicious and they have so many options if you're vegan, keto, paleo, gluten free or just regular. They cater to your food preferences no matter. The food came quickly and they had good customer service.

True Food always goes above and beyond to make sure I don’t get sick! I have been many times and have had great experiences with them. They have so many delicious GF meals, including the most amazing lasagna. They also have the best hummus and offer GF pita with it. I’m very sensitive to cross contamination, and I feel safe eating here!

I will say, I only get meals that are marked GF. One time I ordered a meal that contained gluten that had to be modified for me to eat, and there was a bit of farro (wheat) left on the plate. 😩

All in all, I highly recommend!! I eat here regularly and feel very safe now that I only order meals marked GF. I give them 4.5 stars for safety because I’ve been here so many times and have always been safe except that one time!
