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.

The food is all vegetarian but very very tasty. For around $14 it is all you can eat buffet-really good value. Environment was spiritual with the bhajan. This restaurant is unlike other Indian restaurants as it not overpowered by curry powder, garam marsala and other spices. It is really simple, lovely and authentic. I recommend all vegetarians and non-vegetarians to... More

I love Indian food with beer. The food is spectacular but if you want beer you can bring your own. They do not sell it there. A lot of people go there for take-aways so that's also a good option.

My wife saw this restaurant as we went past in a tram, and when we went in we were impressed with the food and staff who explained the different options. The food was great and we recommend the all you can eat option as real value for money. The restaurant is clean and the food (self service with cooked dishes,... More
