Vegetarian food for meat eaters!

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... read more

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

If you are into vegetarian food this is a good place to be. Staff is very friendly. Be patient as there is always a q up to buffet. Always make sure you book in if there's is more than 2 people.

We decided to try Govinda's as it is very local to us and wanted a different cinema experience. The film plus vegetarian buffet option was very well priced. The cinema itself is very comfortable and it is nice to be able to relax on the cushions whilst watching the film. The food itself was decent, tasty but nothing out of... More

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

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... More

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
