Always fantastic vegetarian

The food at Govindas is unfailingly delicious. We have never been disappointed with anything from here. We only ever get takeaway but there is seating available. They have an amazing array of salads and their curries are so tasty. Try them...you'll be back for more

I love Govindas. I use to go to the Sydney one regularly and now that I am up on the Gold Coast I am a regular again. Great healthy food with lots of flavour and amazing value. Cash only but there is an ATM a few doors down.

Govindas is a great place to buy a beautiful and interesting vegetarian dish. They do hot and cold dishes including a fabulous kofta, awesome pumpkin salad and dreamy cheesecakes but if it's ambiance, service and a touch of class you are looking for, go elsewhere! Seating is very basic and finding one under a fan is no mean feat. (No... More

The fact that no matter what time you go there its a vibing and busy hub - don't let the line fool you ( I don't line up for much if anything) it goes through quick and happy friendly staff handle the fast pace with ease - good to see people who love their job especially under a swift pace...

I'm not really into vegetarian meals but I make an exception for Govindas because their food is so yummy. I'm also a huge fan of their desserts, especially their berry cheesecake! Prices are also really good, the atmosphere is nice although the seating is very crowded. Definitely worth it however!

I've just love their koftas make sure you have some mango chutney with them or even on the kofta salad it is yummy. I am not vegan but like to eat healthy, all their salads are good ☺ my mother in law (88) loves their hot food so do I, especially the veggie bake and lasagne. Highly recommend, sometimes there...

This place is always packed! It was a long wait, but it was worth it! The guy that served us was really friendly and the food was very tasty. Don't come here if you're looking to have a quiet, romantic meal - It's too noisy lol.

First visit on recommendation by a friend and it was most certainly worth it. Get there by noon before the lunchtime rush and you will not be disappointed. We had vegetarian lasagne and Kofta balls with salads and everything tasted delicious. Very quick service and friendly staff. Don't miss this great organic, vegetarian cafe in Burleigh.

For a great Vego meal, cheap, quick, organic veg where-ever possible, this was a wonderful pit stop for dinner. Each dish we ordered between 3 of us was excellent. The desserts are outstanding.
