As a British national, I love curry! This place served up a great garlic naan. The dhaal dish I had was average (although all the portions were huge!) the chicken tikka masala was on the bone, which wasn't expected or explained prior to order. The rice was fine but nothing to shout about. We had the buy one get one... More

Every year, I go to Boracay for vacation and every year, it is a must for me to dine here in True Food. I love Indian food and True Food never fails to satisfy my craving. The price to dine here is on the high side, but the dishes are good for two people. I will keep coming back to... More

We tried the food today. Being British I love Indian Food but was very disappointed with the this place. Food is OK but expensive and is not authentic Indian, seems to be more pepper spicy than Ginger. Nan bread is good, rice was dry, Lamb Vinaloo wasn't very disappointing, Fish Korma is not made with fresh fish. A good place... More

Good and delicious food. A bit pricy for Philippines, but you are in a tourist destination - all restaurant have similar prices. Nice upstairs area. Friendly staff

Having been located in Kalibo for 4 months on a building project and having to put up with the bland local dry rice and meat options I was very happy to find this place.. They offer authentic indian food in a great location. The indoor floor seating area with massive cushions was nice and a great place to relax, one... More

(I recommend SPINACH CURRY with Naan) Non vegetarians:- Stick to Chicken Gravies and Naan .(As lamb is not original and you will get some soys meat balls). Naan is... More

Pleasantly surprised there is at least one Indian restaurant in boracay Pros: very wide spread menu serving both Indian and some Mediterranean food. Beach front sitting option for dinner. Nice ambience inside. Taste and quality food. Huge portions per order. Cons: thought a bit too pricy. Items: veg biriyani - tasty and close to being authentic. Could have avoided mustard... More

Haha that's how my husband described their naan! There's an old Filipino corny joke that sometimes when the food is so good, you'll forget your name. In this case, we forgot the name of the chicken dish we ordered. It's not our usual Indian chicken order so we were happy to try it, and it was awesome! Had the sweet... More

Me: "How come our bill seems so expensive?" Waiter: "Sir, you are paying for the ambience." Me: "AMBIENCE?...HEY! WHO ORDERED THE AMBIENCE?!!!" This place has great ambience, especially at night and on the second floor. Sitting on the floor on top of huge pillows while the cool breeze blows in is a nice way to relax after an action packed...
