Best Vegetarian Cuisine Ever

This is my go to restaurant for vegetarian food. It doesn't get better than this! This is a small restaurant that is operated by the Sri Chinmoy organization.

A really spiritual treat. Run by students of Sri Chinmoy, Annam Brahma feeds the body and soul. Peaceful and meditative atmosphere, friendly and courteous service and simple yummy food. Mmmmm!

I've been coming to this restaurant for about 30 years and I'm not the only one. They have a large and loyal following from all over Queens. As you'd expect with Queens their customers are extremely diverse, both ethnically and culturally. Interestingly, I see a lot of Indians eating here which is perhaps the best endorsement an Indian restaurant can... More

This restaurant serves some of the very best Indian dishes that I have ever had. The food is delicious as well as beautifully prepared and served. The salads are exquisite, the samosas are divine and the chutney is superb. They have daily special entrees that are a real treat. I cannot visit this area of the city without getting a... More

I'd lunch at Annam Brahma just few days ago, coz I & my mom visited the Sri Chinmoy Center. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere there. The place was so peaceful and plenty of a positive energy. The staff was so friendly and warm, and the food very yummy. We tasted so many dishes, but all of them... More

Very unusual place, but in a nice way. Vegetarian restaurants may not be uncommon in California, or even in Manhattan, but in Jamaica, Queens it's something you don't often find. I really liked the combination of 'traditional' American foods (veggie burger with fries) and then the more exotic Indian dishes as well. A real little oasis amongst all the usual... More

Annam Brahma is unique! The food is superb, well thought out (or meditated upon), studied and tested before going out to the colorful, vibrant and luminous dinning hall. The staff is friendly, respectful, pleasantly tactful.and their flowing saris add to this sublimely atmospheric eatery. The extensive menu is full of variety, ethnicity, is reasonably priced and is very easy to... More
