Good food

Nice food, tasty and not expensive. Friendly staff, perfect for a quick bite. Only thing was that the menu is in Slovenian but the staff can translate.

We have been to Govinda's several times now and each time we come away full of good food. The dishes, although not highly spiced, are freshly cooked and seasonal. We especially like the desserts which last time included a very good halwa. The atmosphere is calm and conducive to relaxed dining. We have recommended Govinda's to friends who have also... More

I first came to Govinda's about year ago and I simply can't stop coming. The food is delicious, prepared with a lot of care and attention. The main vegetable dishes and desserts(love the pancakes) alone are worth the visit. The food is seasoned nicely but the dishes aren't overwhelmingly spicy and that's how I personally like it. The staff is... More

I am not sure who have changed in the last years - me or Govindas. I miss the old authentic Govindas with specific indian taste and unique dishes and who was a trend setter in Ljubljana. Now it became just tasteless vegetarian fusion of slovene and indian food. Good to eat from time to time, but easy to forget. I... More

I have been twice this summer. Never liked any of the main dishes, too greasy and not enough Indian flare. I would love to write down what we ate - but always end up trying everything they have out of curiosity. If you will stay away from the fried offer and only get fresh salad and dessert would be a...

Europe is not very good at other cuisines except intra-European ones, but this one is couple steps above that bad average. Very nice buffet style, vegetarian choices. It is somewhat Europeanized, but worth to eat especially if you miss Indian food.

We had a very pleasant lunch and enjoyed the buffet-style immensely. The quality of the food is excellent and being able to pick and choose from the buffet is a bonus. Although the spice level was on the cool side for us, of course, being a Hare Krishna kitchen, all the Doshas must be catered for. We will be heading... More

The place is a hare krishna venue with a self - service bar of cold and hot dishes. Soup 1.5 eur (good), plate 7.5-9.5 eur depending on the size. Quite greasy food, cantine -style but filling. For this price I would pick a veggie option in a nice place in the center, cause the location of Govinda's is really bad.... More
