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

I went for a quick lunch there. They were very busy but were able to sit me down within a couple of minutes. They have a lot of choice (including vegan) and also have lunch deals. I took the portobello mushroom quesadilla with the dal soup. It came fast and was delicious. Good service. I will go again.

Hadn't been there in a few years -- glad we went back. Very good food, excellent service, and reasonable prices. We're not vegetarian, but enjoy their dal (red lentil soup), ravioli (saucy sauce and tasty fillings), samosas, and desserts (especially the Nirvana Chocolate Mousse Pie). What's particularly nice is that in the several years since we've been there, nothing has... More

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

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.
