so different and i'm not normally into vegetarian

I had been to a Govindas in Brisbane and i have to say it was not as good as this one. Brisbane is basically a cafeteria - value but no atmosphere - whereas the Sydney Govindas in Crown st was a winner - really tasty food and a great feel to it, as much as you can eat - a... read more

Just amazing! The cinema is really comfortable and the food afterwards is great! Can't believe how reasonably priced it is!

I don't consider myself a vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination, however I was quite pleasantly surprised by the variety and taste of the food available. It's buffet style, so you get to taste a bit of everything, from cheesy potato, to broccoli and herbs and chickpees, as well as a vege lasagna. Loved the food and the intimate... More

I am veggie. Food forgettable except the rice/salads. Cold, fried potatoes looked like they were cooked a week ago and quite honestly the dish of the days were totally bland- the sort of food 10 guys in a house make at Uni when someone suggests, "yeah lets make a curry...." The only saving grace was the cinema which was quite... More

We bought a Groupon deal for 2 people which was a bargain. The food was very nice. My husband would prefer some meat. The ambiance is good. Very mellow with the red walls. Wedid have to queue up for the buffet. Not much room and we felt likecwe were iintruding on others. The cinema was made up off large lounge... 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 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.... 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
