Glad we sought it out!

I'd heard that there was a Govinda's, in Surfers, so we went there for lunch, during a beachy day out with our little ones. The food was super, as was the price! A peaceful & relaxed atmosphere, despite our children acting as though they'd never been to a restaurant before. *sigh* Very patient... read more

We love popping into Govindas for dinner on a regular basis as there is no booking required, the staff are always friendly and the food is well priced, satisfying and varied. Regardless of whether we eat as a couple or with friends, the atmosphere is always relaxed and enjoyable. I would thoroughly recommend Govindas in Surfers Paradise for beautiful salads... More

An astonishing culinary experience that would convert the most devoted meat lover to a vegetarian. Everything is very fresh, great dressings and sauces. We will definitely come back :)

Beautiful vegan buffet. So many gluten free options too. Winter special is cheap aswell! I came here before with my partner who isn't even vegan and he was impressed. Indian style food, nothing too spicy or overbearing though. Try the Dahl, it's the best lentil soup I've had in a long time and their raw cakes are to die for.

All vegan food. Hare Krishna style. Loads of flavour but not full on spicy. Mostly healthy food. Some not so healthy(fried) but being a self service buffet you can control what and how much you eat. I eat there quite a bit and I'm happy that it is always different. It's my favourite place to eat out on the coast.... More

Govindas is my favourite places to eat on the Gold Coast. Very well priced and friendly staff. Pakoras, koftas, dahl, choc mousse and the cupcakes are my favourites. Delicious salads, pasta bake, potato bake and curries are on offer as well as a dessert fridge filled with yummyness. Home made lemonade and mango lassi are amazing 👌

The board said Special $12 lunch. My daughter is a vegetarian and I am a curry-lover, so I was expecting some tasty curry choices, but there was only something resembling pea soup and another tasteless potato curry, and a few salads. I didn't go back for seconds as one round was enough. Very disappointing. They can do better than this.... More

This review claims that only a pea soup, curry, and a few salads are available and that 12$ is overpriced. This is misleading, actually 4 salads are available couscous, pasta pesto, brocoli and tofu and garden veg, Also condiments are available with the salads, Tahini , Mango, Balsamic and more. The "pea soup" is a lentil vegetable soup. The curry... More
