Oh my! If you want a trip through taste explosions, cultural influences, textures and beauty then this is the place. My friend and I had the 5 course tasting menu so lots of surprises, each dish explained and the chef checking in. I am no longer an oyster virgin as this was the first course and it was delicious. Every course was a feast for the eyes and a treat for the mouth. Thank you for a fabulous experience.

We were so pleased we managed to get a table at this fabulous little restaurant. We hadn't read any reviews so we had no real expectations, we just liked the look of the place and the menu seemed interesting. When we arrived, we received a friendly welcome and, straight away, we felt that this was a good place to be on a horribly rainy evening.

It was difficult to choose as everything on the short menu sounded good but we finally settled on some small dishes and a monkfish special. All the food was incredible, so many flavours and presented beautifully. I'd definitely recommend the prawn trio and the duck. Prices are higher than a lot of other local restaurants but I'd say this one is a cut above and well worth a visit if you want to try something a little out of the ordinary.

It's always good to see a young team running a restaurant, bringing new ideas to the dining table or injecting new life into old dishes. Keep up the good work, guys - you're doing a fantastic job.

Firstly, the environment, the service were great. Cocktails and drinks lived up to expectations. However, the food was disappointing. Katsu Cubes were flavourless and no Katsu to be found. Prawn trio - again flavourless. Monk fish starter, all show and no go - mainly bones and lukewarm curry sauce - very disappointing. Tempura fish good but whole experience not so. Better places in Ventnor.

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! !
