Vegetarian in a rough area

We walked from our Hotel Nikko at 5:30 in the afternoon to Ananda Fuara and the route took us up Market Street from about 5th Street to 9th where the restaurant is located. Going past the infamous Warfield Theater (where the Grateful Dead played many times) was cool and passing the Orpheum (where... read more

My lady friend is a vegetarian so she eats here a lot when she’s at work. We had dinner before going to a play. I liked it a lot. Sort of a woo-woo atmosphere all light blue with waitresses in silky dresses. The food was great for no meat and lots of options. I had the neatloaf non-meatloaf with smashed... More

Really enjoyed the vegan food options here. The advantage of a big city! We came for lunch and early dinners, and I loved the tofu scramble and wrap options.

Amazing food, attentive service and fair price. It is one of the best vegetarian food I've had in my life. I highly recommend, even for non-vegetarians.

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.

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.
