When next you're passing between here and there, and you happen by Ananda Fuara, we insist you go inside; enjoy the relaxing music and the soothing ambience, while sipping some home-grown tea or down-to-earth soups. Everything to eat is very good for you, and for a moment in time, everything seems all good.

The place is located right next to City Hall and the decor is very basic. The waitresses are dressed in saris, and we certainly appreciated the effort as people who grew up around that garment! The all-vegetarian food was good - samosas, tofu wings, nachos, ravioli (pasta could have been thinner but filling was great), lasagne (great filling) and wraps.... More

This restaurant is a great place to chill out - a good range of teas, decent coffee (but no decaf), an attractive range of cakes and cookies, and tasty vegetarian food. Very pleasant decor, peaceful background music, and (for SF) reasonable prices.

What a find. If you're vegetarian, make it a must do for breakfast, brunch or lunch: or all three. Corner of market street by the city hall. Sunday the farmers market on too so makes a nice explorathon. Good service, great eclectic mix of food. Nice simple decor. A little on the expensive side, but as a vegetarian, I'll take... More

I was with a friend waiting for Kryolan to open and my friend was hungry for lunch. I ate here 25 years ago as a vegetarian and loved their curry dishes and dal. I wasn't very hungry and so I just ordered a cup of the dal and my friend had the mushroom scramble with fried potatoes and toast. She... More

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.

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.
