Pretty bad experience with the restaurant. The restaurant has tried to make changes to the conventional Indian recipes by adding some random ingredients mainly being paneer bhurji in samosa! The food was also oily and bland. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Its more suited to someone who hasn't ever tasted Indian food.

Visited Govinda in Barcelona ( its in vicinity of La Rambla). Shear disappointment. The food was really terrible. Its no where near indian taste. We ordered shabnam curry ( somethings which is common in all indian restaurants in Barcelona: on a contrary its very uncommon in any indian restaurant) and veg kofta. Both the dishes were terrible. I have visited... More

Being vegetarian Indians we went to Govinda which was near Ramblas. The food was good but it seems the person attending was not very respectful towards our budget orders. But the service was fast.
