Very nice vegatarian Indian restaurant. I'm sure that even those who eat meat will love this place though there's no meat. The atmosphere is very nice. The food is just great .

I am a big lover of Indian cuisine, and I must say Govinda's is truly the best Indian place in Almaty. Great food, friendly staff, hearty atmosphere. Very recommended!

Though they serve not fully original Indian food, but close to this. Menu is rather interesting, meals - delicious, and they offer some Indian goods to buy.

This restaurant was so hard to find. There are not many numbers on the streets (nor street signs) in Almaty. If you walk north on Abylai Khan st, go past the park on the left, cross the Mametova cross st and to your left the buildings turn to apartments. The restaurant is there, set back from the road, up a... More

I ate at Govinda's only once, after walking around Almaty in search of it for a good hour. The food was worth the hike. I had half a set meal, which was served just five minutes after I ordered, and tasted very nice indeed. The tastes of the small curry dishes on my plate were, perhaps, a tad too 'shy'... More

It's a vegetarian restaurant. The service is always excellent, people are attentive, it is clean. What can I say about the food? It is awesome! It's my favorite place to eat.

Food - typical Indian vegetarian food, prepared freshly (expect waiting for food about 30 minutes). Interior is very basic, don't take your date there for the first time, unless you are into holistic lifestyle. However, food is totally authentic and prices are very low, which is unusual for Almaty. It is located a little further from the city's main attractions,... More
