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.

My wife and I went there, looking at rave reviews on TripAdvisor. Food was below par, made with supermarket pre-cooked portions like veg. nuggets with tomato sauce passing off as Koftas. Whole wheat rotis were heated store-bought wheat tortillas. Thali (full meal) was very expensive even by European standards and not worth it (was tastier than koftas though). We went... More

This was a gem of a restaurant for lunch just off the Ramblas de Estudios. Extremely well priced in relation to other restaurants, friendly and helpful staff who quickly adapted to variations on the menu. The vegetarian Indian food was light and very subtly spiced, the deserts were excellent. One of the most interesting and enjoyable Indian meals I have... More
