Great vegetarian food

I loved Ananda Fuara. The restaurant is quiet and cozy and the food and service are excellent. Would definitely recommend. Only downside is it is located in a slightly unfriendly neighborhood. Would not recommend at night.

I haven't eaten at Ananda Fuara for many years because I stopped working in the San Francisco neighborhood surrounding it. It's still a good choice for tasty and reasonably-priced vegetarian and vegan food. The night I ordered takeout, the restaurant featured daily specials, including curry cauliflower and rice, and a samosa dinner. I actually ordered the samosa as a side.... More

I came here for dinner and had the ravioli - not worth it, really bland and boring. But I came back the next morning for gingerbread pancakes and scrambled tofu and it was delicious.

This is a very pleasant place to have a meal. Though is it operated by an eastern religious group diners should not be put off as the staff are very nice. There are a variety of teas available.

Ananda Fuara probably doesn't have the best entrance with the most street appeal, but the food certainly makes up for it. If you are driving, there is a public garage down the street, a short walking distance to the restaurant. The prices are reasonable, and there are some "shared seating" tables for small parties to share for space when necessary,... More

Great food and vegan friendly. This place does not look like much from the outside and when you walk in, but the food is very good and the prices are not too expensive.

Although the place does not look very attractive from the outside, the food and service are excellent. A lot of great dishes for a fair price and it all comes with an excellent service.

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 The Book of Mormon is playing) was... 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.

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.
