I crave eating at Native Foods. I am not vegetarian but this is one of my favorite restaurants. I have never had a bad meal at Native. Their daily soups are fantastic, salads always fresh, wraps and burgers awesome! Love the sweet potato fries. Can't say enough good things about it, I just wish there was a Native Foods in my home town!

There are some things I do not care for about this restaurant. It smells like body odor inside (no idea why), the trendy "yurt" design makes the table seating cramped, and the demographic of the patrons can at times be off-putting. But when the patio is open, the place isn't crowded with lost (and barefoot) souls in search of their self-identity, and the craving strikes for one of my favorite items, I enjoy the occasional meal here. It still isn't my favorite, though.

Great food. When I go to restaurants I am not looking for healthy meal options. If I wanted that, I'd cook for myself. This place has some fantastic stuff, regardless of whether or not it's all that healthy as some people are saying. It's a restaurant like any other restaurant.
Anyway, I love the chicken fingers with the ranch, and the chili is also fantastic. I love their desserts and scarf them immediately. Had a salad once and the seitan wasn't so great but I think that's because I don't really like seitan. It runs a little expensive for my taste but I go there at least once or twice a month. Definitely recommended.

Amazing salads - great vegan food. The best vegan cheesecake I've ever had! The food was so good, we went there two nights in a row last time we were at Disneyland!

I liked Native Foods because we are regulars at the Veggie Grill and they must be co-owned or something because they have some identical menu choices. I got their quinoa French Dip once and I would not recommend the meat choice. Their nachos are AMAZING. Just about everything we've tried is delish.. their prices are reasonable, not accurate with this site. I'd say about $7-10 per person.

This is a restaurant I go to pretty often. There are of course certain things I enjoy more than others. My favorite item would have to be the faux chicken finger appetizer with the ranch. I need to get the recipe for that ranch because if I remember the taste of ranch correctly this one is far better. Unfortunately the chicken fingers are heavily fried. But there are also some healthier options like salads, veggie bowls, and even the pizzas are pretty healthy (really tasty crust). It has a casual and creative atmosphere and the yert its in is completely amazing! My only complaints are that sometimes it can take a while to get served and one time my friend had a bad reaction to the chilly cheese fries. But I think she just isn’t used to eating fried foods… I wish I could say the same.

simply an amazing restaurant, rumors or franchising, so i hope to see them everywhere for everyone to try because the four that exist are great. i love the atmosphere at the desert locations but this is the most kid friendly one, and my daughter loves the mac and chreese and pizza. i love the california dip (not on the menu but they'll make it!) sandwich. my hubby swears by the jerk burger. a must try! my whole family (non vegans alike) love it from appetizers to dessert...

Love this place. I wish they would open up a drive through or some way for it to be fast food. The tables are uncomfortable, so I usually get my food to go. Sometimes I'm waiting there a long time for it.

However, the food is great and I love bringing my non-veggie friends there. They can't believe how good it is. My fave are the chili cheese fries. Yummmmmmm!!!

Oh yeah, and Linda and Tanya are fantastic. I took one cooking class from Tanya and use the butternut squash lasagna and tiramisu recipes all the time. My friends can't believe it's all vegan! This place is great, and I'm so glad that Tanya has expanded this network, even though she must be on the road all the time. We love Native Foods!

I am not sure if it gets much better than Native Foods. They have an extremely varied menu, and I have savored everything that I have tried (or traded a dining partner for! -there is something for everyone's tastes here). They make the best seitan and the "Native Cheese" is spreadable ecstasy. Their deli case allows you to take whatever you cannot tuck in at the table home to try. Some favorites: Eat it Raw Mama! salad, Newport Reuben, Jerk Burger, and Rockin' Morrocan...

SO GOOD. Not necessarily healthy, but all vegan. I love their sandwiches. Their tempeh is just outrageous. I must warn you about their bowls. Sometimes they just don't taste good. I must advise you NOT to get the macrobiotic bowl. Also, always ask for your salad dressing on the side or else they will drown the lettuce in it. They have also over charred my boyfriend's veggies in one of the bowls he got.

Other than that, it's a regular restaurant in our rotation and I recommend a visit.
