We (a couple) walked in this place by mistake thinking of some other place located on the same small street near Vaci. Anyways, we decided to stay here and to try vegetarian Indian food. Even if it is hard to imagine Indian food without butter chicken, we were obliged to do so because all pre-cooked dishes were made with a... More

As a veggie, I was determind to dig this one out- easy to find by map, it was cheap ( you buy a set meal for an all in one price of about £7) and the portions are huge. Its run by the Hare Krishnas, so there is a lovely Hindu feeling- images, iconography etc. Really recommend.

Great place for a quick, tasteful and affordable vegetarian meal. Self service, the selection changes every day. Can be crowded at lunchtime as many office workers from nearby offices come here to eat.

Ok so the food won't be the best you've ever tasted and has a more Hungarian than Asian taste but anywhere offering vegan choice gets the thumbs up from me! Very reasonably priced, English speaking, comfortable, well decorated restaurant offering vegan and vegetarian fast food style meals at a very very reasonable price.

What can I say? Good, cheap, fresh veggie food with loads of puddings! Self service. Not nouvelle cuisine!

Every time I go here, I'm never disappointed! It's always the same good quality food with authentic indian spices ( less hot) and music. It s a pity they dont do more vegan dishes and cake. If you wanna have a quick,nice, healthy and tasty lunch or dinner with some original and exotic ingredients, it's your place to be.

Govinda offers cheap and good self-service (no waiters) buffet. Excellent for lunch or afternoon break, not for your romantic candle light dinner.
