I have been to this restaurant many times when I'm in the Civic Center area. The vegetarian food has always been good and it's easy to get vegan options. It's a small place but sometimes they are short a server or it feels as if the servers are a bit overwhelmed when all the tables are full, so I have... More

I have dined here many times. Don't be put off by the images of Sri Chimnoy, the guru to the people that run this place, and fear not, you won't be abducted and forced into food service. The food is good, the atmosphere is tranquil, especially in contrast to what is directly outside.

I really don't like to write bad reviews but I can't help it. The service was terrible, the atmosphere is cold and the food was not tolerable...followed by indigestion...and yes I am vegan. Really can't recommend anything here except I must say the chocolate cake was outstanding...there I did find one good thing to say.

What a nice place, with very nice service and kitchen staff. I am not a vegetarian but really appreciate vegan food, which makes sure that my lactose intolerance is accommodated. The food is tasty, plentiful, fresh, and even the teas are special. We especially enjoyed the chocolate cake for dessert!

It looks like an Indian restaurant with vegan / vegetarian options. But it is NOT. It is more thai and non-veg, poor choice for Indian food seekers.

Good for Indian food. Have lot of varieties and the food is nice. I tried the meal which had a mix of roti dal and rice. The curry of the day was good.

Lucked into this unique eatery while in SF for the marathon. Very peaceful and warm, cheery decor. Loved being able to order a side of stamed veggies to have with the curry plate of the day. Appreciated the varied menu and thought my meal was fresh, well-prepared and tasty. Since I often find restaurant food too salty and/or too greasy,... More

It was one of the best veggie restaurant we did in Frisco! The price/quality rate is really impressive for the quantity you have! The place is not really beautiful, but it has charm for the market street full of brands and chains restaurants. We ordered salads with a Mexican style ( I don't remember exactly) but it was really fresh... More

Ananda Fuara is about a 15 minute walk north from the Powell St cable car turnaround/Westfield Mall, along Market Street (only a few minutes from the Civic Center stop on the MUNI) so if you're a vegetarian, it's very easy to get to and is a fantastic place for an excellent, tasty, hearty brunch/lunch/early dinner (but check which days they...

Neighborhood Profile
Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things government and performance-related in the city. Although its streets are best walked during daytime, numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz center offer year round entertainment within the shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold tipped dome of City Hall.
