I had the daily meal (which consists of a soup and a main dish plus a simple green salad). The soup (with a slice of freshly baked bread) was too salty and lukewarm. The main dish was fancy: Rice with seeds, breaded (?!) red cabbage balls and grated carrots in a vegan mayonnaise - I hope I've named this correctly -, the combination of foods was definitely unusual. Unfortunately the main dish was lukewarm too, but everything seemed very fresh.

All this was not cheap - and here I disagree with other reviewers: 450 Dinar (~ 4 dollar) is unaffordable for a large portion of the population and can't compete with many other restaurants - which the restaurant probably doesn't want to do anyway.

The service was prompt and English speaking - and as friendly as the atmosphere generally.

I'm glad this restaurant exists - and I'm likely to return. The general quality is still good and - there are apparently no alternatives in Novi Sad.

    I see you disagreed with others concerning the prices in Ananda, and would like to clear out some things.
    Those prices they have really aren't expensive at all. For a very nice, fulfilling meal (depends how hungry you are, of course), that really isn't much. There probably are some places out there with the same prices and way higher income, but Serbia just "got used" to certain prices, so when you compare Serbian income with all sorts of prices you see in the city, you'd say "damn, how do you live at all?", but people would say "no, that one is pretty ok, actually" (again it depends, of course).
    There's a place in Novi Sad where a piece of cake is 50 dinars or so, and people say "omg, that's SO cheap!". No it isn't. It just a very realistic price.

    But ah well, I could go on about this until forever....
    I just wanted to try to explain to you how the situation is in Serbia. :)
    I'm glad you visited Novi Sad, btw. Ananda is the only vegan place we have, but it's a very good one! :)

I managed to eat there only once because the restaurant closes at 6pm and isn't open on Sundays. The food was tasty and constituted a complete meal. I also had a very tasty Indian spiced muffin (which survived the trip to the other part of the city, although the staff warned me it wouldn't). The food is very cheap by the western standards and quite affordable by Serbian standards as well.

Pros: very good value, tasty food
Cons: closes at 6pm

I'm eating in this vegan restaurant 4 to 5 times a week for more than 3 years. And all I can say is that it is fantastic. You can take away your cooked lunch or good sandwich for breakfast or diner, or enjoy a nice artistic atmosphere with very friendly staff. Prices are very affordable.

i am from novi sad and I love to eat at Ananda. One thing I would never say about it is that it is moderately priced. Why, beacuse it is cheap. You can have the whole main mail with home maid wholewheat bread and amazing fresh green seasonal salad for 3,5 euros up to 4 euros. Soup price is 1,5 Euros. Amazing vegan cakes are around 1 euro..

So enjoy your meal in this lovely place with low prices.

xoxo

fantastic to find Vegan in Novi Sad

Visited this restaurant when staying in Novi Sad for EXIT festival and I was so pleasantly surprised to find them here! They have daily dishes and when we visited it was a vegan pasta, like Bolognaise style with soy chunks in replace of meat. We also had tempura veg and desserts.

The desserts were Indian inspired and really nice with spices such as cinammon.

The owners are lovely and dedicated to veganism.

Thank you for a wonderful meal :)
