located on Larkin Street round the corner from the hotel i was staying out this year September 2016 I stumbled across this lovely restaurant. Was finding it hard to find vegan options in San Francisco and this place was amazing- vegan options clearly stated and loads of them- even vegan ice creams, cakes and cookies on offer. Staff absolutely amazing,... More

I came by during my vacation to San Francisco because I was keen to seek out a vegetarian restaurant and this is well placed next to the Civic Center. I walked in for an early lunch and was pleased with the relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff. I ordered the soup and salad combo which was a daal and small carrot/beetroot/leaf... More

The service was quick and pleasant. The food was above average. The samosas were good except for the raisins in them! The mango lassis were among the best anywhere. Ravioli was excellent. Hummus was bland. Falafel wrap was OK. Clean bathroom.

Have been here many times and finally review time - overdue, but well recommended ! "Ananda Fuara" means "Fountain of Delight" and it certainly lives up to its name. The food is housemade, delicious and healthy and with an airy and peaceful dining environment, your meal here will be enjoyable (if not outright delightful!). The place offers many selections for...

I was quite happy to see a pure veg hotel while walking on market street. The food options were good. Equally great was the taste and their service.

Stumbled upon this place by accident on a Saturday and decided to try it for brunch. I had the french toast, topped with roasted bananas, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and candied pecans. It was the best french toast I think I have ever had in my life. The toast itself was just the right texture and had a great taste (most... More

What a delightful and simple dining experience near the Civic Center of San Francisco. Ananda Fuara creates a space for mindful dining and delicious dishes. The Neatloaf is spectacular. The teas are a must. Try the Rose Cake. No, try everything! I'll be going back.

Greens restaurant may be snazzier, but Ananda Fuara is much more reliable, nutritious, and affordable. The staff are wonderfully honest and dedicated, even if they can get a little overwhelmed at busy lunch rushes. The kitchen is impeccably clean. The food is 100% vegetarian, and they have many vegan dishes, too. The dessert case is amazing. Best chocolate cake in... More

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.
