Great Dinner followed comfy cinema

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

For Vegetarians like me, it was good choice. Although variety of vegetarian food available was limited, but whatever was there was good. It was little on higher side as far as cost is concerned.

If you like vegetarian and Indian cuisine, you will love Govinda's buffet. We found this gem in our Fodder's travel guide...The food selection is small and they often run out during the dinner rush, but everything is delicious. The restaurant is in a Hare Krishna center on the 2nd floor and the 3rd floor is a movie theater. The dinner... More

Vegetarian buffet and a movie...food was good. Not great but I'm giving it a 4 cos I'm a generous soul and the experience is everything sometimes. Loved the lounge all over the floor movie theatre. We saw The Lunch Box and it was a perfect fit. Great lazy night dining experience.
