We turned up with no booking...

We chanced it on a Friday and managed to get the film & meal combo for $30 each. The table of 4 next to us managed to do the same as well. We chose food before the 8pm film and found the buffet to be good - soup, pasta, chips, fried broccolli, veg curry, rice, and a veg cottage pie.... read more

I went to Govinda's first over a year ago and going back, it did not at all disappoint! The staff are SO friendly. My friend lost her ring on the night and they called us the next day when they found it. They bent over backwards looking for it at the time. The food is so delicious, the salads were... More

We recently ate at Govind's and took in a movie as well. The food was delicious! The venue for the movies was very unique and comfy. Great atmosphere all around. Would definitely return.

Went there for the meal and movie combo. Cinema is very unique with futon-style seating. I picked the ONE ROW which had shorter leg room. Watch out and avoid that. The meal (we chose to eat after the movie) was enjoyable. The deep fried cauliflower was the stand out. I think there should have been an eggplant dish (given it... More

The vegetarian food was excellent in casual surrounding. No alcohol, but that didn't matter, we had a couple of beers before! Best to be on the open terrace. Followed by a film in there own cinema on mattresses and cushions. It could not have been more comfortable and relaxed

My friend and i came here for dinner last and it was amazing! The atmosphere is lovely and even though the selection seemed small there was certainly enough variety. The service was great, very friendly staff however a third waiter would have been good to allow service to be quicker. All in all I had a great time and will... More

As far as I can tell this place is run by a religious sect. Certainly not hard sell but plenty of advertising on the walls and the vegetarian only meal was a giveaway. Still, an interesting experience thats for sure. We got a deal which included Meal and Movie for about $15 per person so it was great value. The... More

I was worried that Govinda's would be too much Hare Kirshna at all, but it's not, not at all. Service is friendly, food is very good and prices are okay. Design of the restaurant isnt' great, it's a bit dated and is not very charming. Food is all vegetarian which is great and it's all you can eat from a... More

It is always good to eat food that has been prepared in vegetation kitchen. The food here is well prepared but not outstanding. We went expecting Indian food. Although there were dishes which were notionally Indian, there was not enough variety of spices so many dishes were quite bland. A good selection of salads and a help yourself buffet. The... More
