Indian Canteen, but not really, more a slovenian-Indian mix

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... read more

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.

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

Very good restaurant in Ljubljana which is a vegan friendly town. A little bit far from center, but decent and cheap food, with a self service buffet to choose from. It is not all vegan, but it is very nice that they write on meals which one are for vegans and which are not. It's a like a student cafeteria,... More

Govinda is a Hare Krishna owned vegetarian restaurant in Šiška. It is located on a side road very close to Union beer factory. It is a self-service restaurant and they provide a decent variety of ready-made food. I tried most of the dishes. The food was decent if a bit bland. I missed the spices which are so characteristic for... More
