Govindas is a great family restaurant, suitable for vegetarians and vegans as well. The buffet is so cheap and great value for money. I think we paid only $10 or $11 per person for the wholesome vegetarian buffet. I usually only have one large plate full but my partner and brother consume about four plates full each time including desert.... More

We were thrilled to spot this little vegetarian gem in the middle of busy Surfer's Paradise. This Indian buffet was so popular that the serving dishes often ran low -but were soon refilled. We certainly were pleased with the variety and left feeling quite satisfied. The price (especially for this area) was a bargain and the food was very flavorful.... More

It could a good choice for pure veggies who do not get Indian food that often, but the menu was a big turn off. Nothing exciting or new, plus all seemed to be loaded with oil. Didn't opt to eat here after seeing the buffet.

we ate there late March 2015, the food is amazing and the all you can eat menu means you can load up. This was a good venue and was suitable for my vegan daughter.

I have been to Govindas in Burleigh but the surfers paradise store does an all you can eat buffet for virtually the same price as the large take away. I am a regular here before work for lunch and sometimes after for dinner. One of my favourite vegetarian places in the Gold Coast!

Visited Govindas last night as a solo traveller... After all, less than $15 for an all you can eat buffet has got to be good right?!? Cold and hot selection for buffet... Inc pesto pasta & creamy rosemary potatoes... Slightly odd for an Indian. Don't get me wrong, I left full to the brim... And as my first vegan meal... More

I took my wife there for Valentine's day since she is a vegetarian thinking she will have plenty of options rather then other buffet places with minimal options. However, I was strongly disappointed as the food options were very very basic (Lentils and rice). There was curry but it tasted very bland. I understand being a religious kind of establishment...

The choice of meals was quite good, 4 salads, pakoras, dahl, rice, quinoa, a stir fry, pasta bake and curry. Tried all the hot food and they were tasty but the curry was a bit bland. We took a couple of beers with us and they didn't mind us drinking them.
