Annapurna serves Ayurvedic/Indian cuisine. Food ifsvegetarian, good quality, a little spicey for this Pita type, but excellent nonetheless. Prices are high for what you are buying, but hopefully produce is organic and this accounts for the price on items. Keb Mo, the bluesman, was in town recently and said that Annapurna is where he eats when he is in ABQ. He also said "It gives you a better s-x drive and we know you all want great s-x!" Now, this just reinforces what I said above - that , for a Pita (Fire) type , the food is too spicy - which results in increased "Heat" in the body and a high libido. These results are not in keeping with the Ayurvedic goal,which would be to create a "sattvic" (calm, meditative) result in people. For me, though, the biggest problem is attitude. The service is slow (even though it is counter service) and the staff have a sense of "noblesse oblige" (look it up - it means "holier than thou" from as class perspective). I have had many experiences there which , unfortunately, bear this out. As someone who is sometimes on a schedule, sometimes getting take-out, etc., I find that the attitude of "if you are in a hurry, we don't want you here" seems to apply. When I brought a coupon from a service that they participated in, they refused to take it, stating that it was not good on the day of the week I arrived. I checked back with the vendor and found out that this was not so. Someone forgot that service is what makes restaurants successful.. So - buyer beware! Come with a good deal of time, patience, and don't take it personally when service is not great.

Vegetarian menu is mostly vegan. Staff was very helpful with suggestions. They were not busy the evening I was there and my order arrived quickly. Meal was excellent. I plan to return the next time I am in town.
There's a different restaurant here now, its Mediterranian. I don't know what this new place is like, I've never been in it.
