Food is wonderful, but service is rude! – I was very dissapointed when I went to Ananda Fuara. The server we had was rude, and seemed annoyed that she had to actually work. We must have sat there for 20 minutes just waiting for someone to come by (there were only a few occupied tables in the restaruant.) The table behind us was filled with 4 or 5 of the staff, and we overheard them saying cruel things about another member of the staff after she walked away from the table. (There went our faith in there "peaceful spirituality".) The place seemed very pretentious, and fake. Very different from the experience I thought we would have.

The food however was VERY good, (we had the Neatloaf and a Vegan Chicken Pesto Wrap) but the negative experience really affected that.

I'd recommend trying the food, but call in and order or get it to go.

Even meat eaters love this place!!! – Im a hardcore meat eater but I love when my veggie friends take me here! The neatloaf sandwich is simply scrumptious! A great place for a quick lunch or when in that akward middle market area...and even though its a little akward to see blond haired white women in traditional Indian garb, well, its worth the sight...

Sari-wearing followers of Sri Chinmoy run this charmingly unusual Upper Market vegetarian restaurant. – This vegetarian restaurant, run by the Bay Area chapter of India's Sri Chinmoy religious sect, hosts an eclectic mix of serious vegans and Civic Center business types. The female waitstaff all wear brilliantly colored saris, while a TV plays an endless loop of Mr. Chinmoy alternately meditating, preaching, and performing feats of strength. Neatloaf--a mix of brown rice, ricotta, eggs, tofu, onions and spices--paired with mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy, is the much-praised house specialty. Also popular are veggie burgers, vegetarian burritos and samosas with chutney. Breakfast is served until 11am, and the low prices and satisfying hotcakes (multigrain or buttermilk), scrambled tofu and various omelettes make it worth the trip. Beverages include herbal teas, traditional Indian lassi drinks, lattes and of course, the requisite smoothies.

Decent Veggie Food for the Price – Yummy stuff for a decent price. No gourmet offerings here, but the food is solid and satisfying. The proportions are enormous, particularly the salads.

Vegetarian Oasis – My wife and I were amazed to find this place and others so close to our hotel on Market in the Civic Center area. The many street people give the area a feel that wouldn't suggest you could dine so well. The ambience of Ananda Fuara is relaxed and the staff were prompt and helpful.

The vegetarian menu compared very favorably to other here and in our native New Orleans.

I had the Samosas dinner and it was delicious. My wife had a greek salad. Everything was fresh and nicely presented.

We love this place! – We've eaten here 25-30 times over the years. We's eat there more often if we lived closer. The food is terrific... we tried almost everything on the menu. Our favorites: tofu scramble for breakfast; neatloaf, samosas, veggie burgers, dahl and hummus for lunch/dinner. My husband is a strict vegan ;our son is a picky eater ...We're all happy. We have always found the service fine and friendly....the staff may be followers of Sri Chimnoy... so what...they are down to earth and nice not phoney nice like some pricier snobbier places. The place is an oasis ....very clean and comfortable. Great food, good prices, friendly staff, very pleasant eating atmosphere......what more could one want? To those whiners who criticize the "new age" atmosphere just go eat somewhere else! Whenever we've gone there the customers......business types, students, visitors, miscellaneous (like my family) love it!
