The food was delicious. However, the buffet costs AUD 20 per person which doesn't include dessert. I think this price should include dessert. Although the food was great, we found the service appalling. We were told the buffet closes at 9.30pm. But at 9pm, the waitress told us they are closing at 9.15 as it was very quiet. We went... More

This was my first visit to Govinda's and having read some of the reviews I was a bit apprehensive. But it turned out much better than I expected. Nice ambience with little tea lights everywhere. Attentive and friendly service. The buffet wasn't huge but enough choice. The salads in particular are lovely and fresh. A couple of curries (not fabulous... More

Well, after reading all the good reviews, my wife and I went to enjoy this reputable vegie buffet. What a huge disappointment, all the dishes were only about heavy lentils and cauliflowers over boiled and mixed with some curry sauce, not even tasteful, reminded us of the boring canteen food for kids and students. Hard to digest, not even indian-spicy... More

Govinda is located near King Cross Station. It is about 5 minutes walk from the station. Restaurant is on the first floor and there is a small flight of steps that need to be climbed ( I dont think there is any lift). There is generally a all-you-can-eat dinner buffer. Costs about $20 and has soup, rice, few vegetable curries,... More

I had read that this was a must-do for Sydney and it really was. Cool cinema upstairs on the top floor where they have lounges and bed-like mattresses which are inclined to the perfect position - so comfortable!! You take your shoes off and kick back just like you're at home. Such a great idea, i'm really not sure why... More
