Dinner and a movie

A great afternoon and evening out, watched a movie on the very comfy day beds, would probably recommend an early session for maximum comfort. Then to the buffet for dinner afterward, it's a full Indian inspired vego feast, and surely something there for everyone. Food is very filling so you won't... read more

We booked dinner and movie. The food was delicious!!!! We waited to go upstairs to our movie, we went to the desk to pay and were told we had to join the huge que which went outside. The movie was to start at 8:45pm and were still queuing at 9:05. We decided to sell our tickets to some people already... More

Considering that this is my first vegetarian experience, I absolutely loved it. We too purchased a voucher from Groupon, but that didn't mean that our experience was any different. It was very busy, but everyone got to the buffet with heaps of food still there. There was not one dish that I could say anything negative about. I really did... More

Excellent experience we had when we had a deal of movies and dinner! My friend who is a total meat lover, enjoyed the dinner and was surprised! Loved the little cinema, family almost atmosphere and the whole authentic experience. It's a buffet too, so you can have as much food as you like...

We purchased a groupon voucher to experience Govinda's for date night. Everything about this place is great. The atmosphere & vibe. The friendly service. The generous amount of food available from the buffet. And the cinema, whilst not being decked out with the latest sound and technology... was so comfortable and enjoyable. Will definitely recommend and be back!

Seriously the buffet here is so full of delicious dishes that even if you are not vegetarian, you will enjoy a meal here. If after one plate full you are still hungry, simply do an Oliver Twist and go back for more. The staff were lovely, a peaceful environment including a small outdoor balcony if the weather is fine.

Had a great evening at Govinda's after finding a voucher on Groupon for this place. We watched a film in the cinema on comfy, gigantic bed sofas (with no pesky arm rests in the way) and then headed down to the buffet restaurant afterwards. Vegetarian food, mostly with an Indian theme was on the table. Found the food to be... More

We caught an early movie at Govinda's on a chilly Saturday evening and finished with a wonderful meal in the restaurant. The veggie buffet has something for everyone (even for those who pull a face at the thought of vegetarian!). The movies experience is intimate and relaxed, the staff are friendly and helpful and the food is bountiful, fresh and... More

We are very happy that we found out about Govinda's via an email from Groupon. We loved the vegetarian food (even though we aren't vegetarians) which was so delicious and you could eat as much as you wanted from the buffet. The food is a mix of Indian tastes (coriander, curry, etc) with modern salads (kale, quinoa, etc). The movie... More
