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.

One of the Indian vegetarian food restaurants available between liceu and placa de catalunya stations, the food is reasonably good though the prices are a bit expensive. However bear in mind that you do not get the authentic Indian taste for some of the food items

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.
