Ananda Fuara is so quietly and consistently excellent that I don't think it receives as much acknowledgment as it truly should for being an outstanding vegetarian and vegan restaurant in San Franciso. They have about 50% vegan and 50% vegetarian options so plenty for everyone. I work nearby and it is honestly the most popular restaurant in the area for both vege people and meat eaters alike because the food is fresh, delicious and very reasonably priced. Their best dishes are their scrumptious dal soup, remarkably fresh salads (their lemon tahini dressing is to die for), curry dishes, neatloaf sandwiches and desserts. Thanks to Ananda Fuara, I can have freshly baked vegan cake and pies every and any day of the week! Now if only they would offer vegan ice cream . . .
Also, as a person who has been eating there for decades, I have never been approached by anyone in even the subtlest fashion about meditation or their spiritual affiliation. So I think it sends the wrong message to say here that the restaurant is affiliated with Sri Chimnoy and from my experience untrue that they offer meditation. This may discourage people from going there. Yes, the waitresses wear saris but as a business woman who works close by, I find that charming and adds to the peaceful atmosphere.
Cons: No vegan ice cream, No vegan chocolate chip cookies, No vegan milkshakes
