Info courtesy of Vegetarians in Paradise

A bustling, all vegan restaurant with the same high quality foods as their Palm Springs and Palm Desert locations. Focused on convenient, healthy take-out and fast food. Many selections, each creative in ingredients, flavor, and presentation. Our favorite appetizer is the Tempeh Chips with an Asian dipping sauce. The Bongo Congo was great and as was the Rockin' Moroccan, both generous entrees.

I ate at the ones in Chicago. I lived in Chicago for awhile they have at least 4 Native Foods through out Chicago. I found this one in California through the Happy Cow website. I love the food. They have a great selection of foods to choose from. The inside of place was a great clam place to eat and to bring your children. It has a good family atmosphere. If you are looking for a great family place to eat choose this one.

The service here was friendly, but it took forever for our food to arrive (at least 25 minutes). Also, the space upstairs for dining is tiny and kind of grungy and uncomfortable.

We found the food to be largely bland and uninspired. My philly cheese steak was spongy (both the bread and the seitan) and had no real flavor to it. My friend's Gandhi bowl does a disservice to the man it's named after (who believed in the inherent flavorful nature of vegetarian food), as it was basically a salad with leafy greens and some spices randomly tucked away at the bottom of the bowl.

The chicken wing appetizers were good, crispy and light. Our cheesecake was also good, though it wasn't made by Native Foods, and came in a plastic container. All in all, Native Foods in Westwood has much room to improve.
