I am finding it difficult to emphasise just how good this restaurant is. The distinct cuisine is quite frankly superb. The variety of flavours and textures is overwhelming. The only answer is to go and try it for yourselves. The restaurant also has a very casual and friendly vibe with excellent, welcoming and attentive service. The wine list is short but entirely adequate and they have some fun cocktails. This is truly a wonderful place to go.

Special birthday dinner - very difficult to choose from the menu as all looked delicious - we shared the scollops followed by the risotto and yellow curry
Blue cheese ice cream desert to finish - all just perfect
Great cookery and professional service throughout
Well done Team True Food Kitchen Ventnor! !

This is top quality cooking and presentation. To start with the restaurant looks great and has a good atmosphere. Service was friendly and attentive. But what really grabs you about this place is the quality of the cooking. I had the fish of the day - swordfish - which was some of the best fish I’ve ever had; my wife had an excellent steak. The small plates we had were very good too (particularly the duck gyoza). If I was going to quibble, which seems a bit harsh, I would say that rice or noodles might be a more appropriate accompaniment, for some of the dishes, than potatoes, but that shouldn’t detract from the overall experience.
The restaurant is small; reservations are therefore essential.

What an amazing culinary experience! Michelin inspectors get yourselves to this place! The food was creative and fresh with great service. Intimate setting and feel very special. These chefs need to be recognised on a wider platform as their Asian fusion small plates were so good. We were amazed Ventnor could offer such a great culinary experience. Thank you and take a bow.👏🏻
