Annapurna’s World Vegetarian Café® is a world-class Vegan~Vegetarian Restaurant with locations in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. We offer homestyle organic vegan food. There are many vegetarian restaurants in the nation, however, what differentiates Annapurna's is our ability to offer Ayurvedic vegan fresh food that is locally grown. Our organic vegan fresh food is offered with spices and vegetarian food that are made fresh daily.


Eating on the go with fast foods can quickly lead to fast food addiction which, in turn, leads to severe imbalance of your physical and mental well-being. Annapurna's World Vegetarian Cafe has the cure to this everyday imbalance. It's known as the "Ayurvedic Way" or most commonly known as "The Science of Life." Most foods target your sweet taste buds and only your sweet taste buds, and this causes your body to crave carbohydrates and sugars. Sattvic, also known as pure food, targets six tastes in every meal- sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent and pungent. With every plate combining these six tastes, your body receives a balanced and more relaxed feeling with every bite. So when you are looking for an organic Vegan Restaurant with authentic vegetarian native foods, stop and visit Annapurna's World Vegetarian Restaurant at one of our two Vegan Restaurants in Albuquerque or Santa Fe.


Annapurna's offers a sit down restaurant or take-out food with our Car-ma curbside service. So the next time you are in a hurry, you can still eat native foods that are made with organic vegan food at our Albuquerque or Santa Fe Restaurants. it's food that is made fresh daily.

I got the North Indian food sample and I got sick, so so sick. I took my mom and she had the samosa and the soup of the day. My mom threw up right after getting out of the car. Then I threw up 15 minutes later. We both are not very familiar with vegan food but something tasted moldy. Maybe a visit from the health inspector is in need.

Sampler platter is tasty. The samosas are very very good. The drinks are refreshing. Expensive. Self service. We cannot eat here often because the food causes so much gas, but thats our problem I guess.

This restaurant could do a much better job. The food, while decent most of the time, is overpriced. Be careful what time of the day you go, or you could wait in line for 10 minutes before ordering, then wait equally as long or longer to get your food. This restaurant prides itself on its menu...But a good menu doesn't equal a great restaurant. I would suggest the owners take a serious look at who they employ to manage their restaurant and cook their food. Maybe they feel being near the university allows them to slack on service to their customers? However, they could really improve their operation if they were more focused on the customer and consistent quality I.e. the basics of any successful business.

The food is tasty, fulfilling and healthy, but aside from the calm atmosphere and the feeling that the food brings, the young woman (Brittany) working the front of the store was rude, standoffish, and unwelcoming. She may have had a bad day or perhaps that is who she is but that is no excuse for the service that I received. It had an overall effect on our experience. 5 stars for the food, -2 stars for the service.

Well, they say the first impressions are the most important, and we...had to wait a bit. Why this place insists on having you order at a mostly full counter with seemingly scores of food choices, is beyond me. You have a situation where every person ordering is almost overwhelmed with choice, which delays the ordering for everyone else behind them. There's gotta be a better way. (We experienced this in their Santa Fe location also.) Having said that, man they give you yummy food, lots of it, and it's a great deal. The chai is amongst the best I've ever had, not overly sweet like many places make it. Lot of Vegan options, which is what we were looking for. Food was served fast for what we ordered, so that makes up for the wait to order your food. Ambiance is lacking. Not sure what the deal is with many restaurants in New Mexico, it seemed an afterthought to make your place inviting or cozy or even just a theme. Most of the places we went just put tables in a big room, put some decoration on the walls or ceiling, and called it a day. You gotta put a little bit more effort into these things to make eating out fun! Having said that, this place tasted good, and ultimately that's what counts the most. A solid 4 stars.

Annapurna's is great in terms of selection--the staggering amount of vegan options here leave me in a near option paralysis. That said, the food is just 'okay;' nothing is exceptionally good or exceptionally bad. The service is hit or miss. I've had very friendly cashiers and horribly rude cashiers, and most of the time, food takes decades to reach your table. I don't think it's worth the (in my opinion) expensive price tag, but it's nice for an occasional treat.

The foods really good. Lots of vegan options. Deserts aren't very good though. I've tried most of them and I only suggest the pecan pie and the date chocolate ladus. They're expensive but really good. Any of the other deserts are pretty bad. Great vegan breakfast burritos. Check it out!

My boyfriend and I both got food poisoning here last night. We were feeling great until I got the North Indian Sampler platter, including three dishes and only one chapatti, and he got the veggie burger and masala fries. For my platter, the saag paneer dish was rotten. When I told the server, she just said that the cooks would be throwing it all out soon anyway because it was almost closing time. She did not offer to refund my money. The other two dishes were so over-spiced that I couldn't eat them. The platter was supposed to be "vata-pitta balancing" - in other words, it was supposed to be grounding and cooling to the digestion. The remaining, non-rotten food was actually so spicy and acidic that I lost my appetite after a couple of bites, and the whole meal had hardly any protein and was very ungrounding. I had paid for medicinal food and it had the opposite effects. I eventually gave up forcing myself to eat it. As soon as I left, my stomach started to hurt. For the last 24 hours I have had diarrhea, horrible gas, and an upset stomach. My boyfriend also got sick from the veggie burger. He said it was tasted terrible. They had him pay extra for cheese, which they then forgot. There was dirt on his lettuce, and he also got an upset stomach and diarrhea. We are on a road trip across the country, so this sucks. Our friend liked her food, but had also had toilet trouble in the morning. The hot water machine wasn't working, so there were no hot drinks available. (Could they not heat water in a pot to serve tea in this "chai house"?) The atmosphere was nice, except that the two servers there acted like they were irritated to see us. I think fireballs were actually shooting from the girl's eyes. Everything was very expensive, considering the portion sizes, food quality, and the fact that you order at a counter. And, I don't care if it's all organic if it's going to give us food poisoning! This has slowed down our trip so now I have had to pay for medicine and an extra night in a motel. Tomorrow I am camping and attending a retreat and worried about that. My friend says that at their Santa Fe location, the owner is very good and oversees everything. I suggest the owner go down to Albuquerque and find out why the food is so bad and make sure no one else gets sick like I did.
