I would recommend the Dal and / or the salads. The restaurant is run by meditating nuns, so plenty of good vibes.

The grillers are my favorite dish here, ask them to make it with "bacon strips" really crispy. (its fake bacon) I have taken people who are not vegetarian to try these, and they have loved them. Note that this is a very small, cozy, local restaurant with its own charm (Its run by Sri Chinmoy disciples). Prices are very good... More

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. The place has a really peaceful and calming atmosphere, so much so, that you almost want to whisper and not disturb the peace. The food is divine. I never thought vegetarian food... More

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

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
