Great food in massive quantities.

As locals we have eaten at Govindas numerous times. Without fail they provide healthy food at very cheap prices and in overburden quantities. It's a small shop, among many, with some indoor tables and 2 tiny outdoor tables. You line up cafeteria style and pick from a menu or blackboard. Last week... read more

This place is very well rated and they certainly deserve those good rates. I had a salad with veggie curry with tofu and was delicious. Price-wise: fair

The daily specials were yummy and the regular menu was sensational. Beware however as we visited the Q1 Hotel (heart of Gold Coast) Observation deck and there was a Govinda's nearby. We though they must be the same operators but the food was not as good.

Its no fuss good food. Its a vegetarian/vegan restaurant. Buffet style. I think this place could be amazing if it was a vegan restaurant.

Taste very good and fresh, I don't think it's traditional Indian but I like the taste the curry is not too strong , but also recommend the govindas in surfers for the same price but it's a buffet.

Great vegetarian cafe. Very tasty and generous serves & very popular. Difficult to find a seat at lunchtime but that is a good sign. Constantly bringing out fresh food
