We dined at Govinda on our last nite. It is located in a quiet part off Las Ramlas. The food was pure vegetarian - Indian, cooked from scratch at very reasonable prices. The chapatti & dal were excellent just like home cooked. Thanks guys.

This restaurant is too hyped, not value for money!! They food quality is average, nothing great. I tried they veggie thali and was very disappointed. Who serves tortilla as roti in the thali? Really very bad!! Their staff was pretty rude with us, had to call they every time we wanted something (including the bill!!). The place is pretty spacious... More

I visited this restaurant on 15/12 for a quick lunch. Prices are too high with limited options. Also the food specially Indian breads did't seem authentic at all. Waiter was nice and explained details of dish they offer Bit disappointed. I visited another Indian restaurant at La rambles a day before which was reasonable and fantastic food (Bombay spice)

Being a vegetarian and a fan of Indian food we went to Govindas for a meal. there happened to be an Indian family in the restaurant at the same time. They were a little disappointed with the menu and there's not a big choice. The food came quicker than expected as everything seemed very laid back. What we got was... More

Hindi cuisine is my favorite, and this place in the heart of Barrio Gótico did not disappoint. The best part of the lunch meal was probably the home made bread and the carrot soup, but the filled crêpe I had was delicious as well. For dessert I went with the vegan coconut ice cream, just a bit too sugary for... More

On a little square off La Rambla. Hindu cuisine, all veggie. Not expensive at all. Lovely staff, laid back ambience. Curries, salads and freshly pressed juice.

I have been visiting this restaurant for the past 7 years. Food quality is good . But over the years, the price is going up very past The restaurant looks tired. The cleanliness is coming down. There are many alternate choices now at much lesser prices. May not visit next time.
