Solid vegetarian food

As stated, a very safe vego option in a whole region of meat-heavy cuisine. The set menu will fill the hungriest of people for relatively cheap. Has a nice quiet feel. Note: google maps shows the wrong address if trying to find by map. If you end up near the train station, turn around and walk... read more

It's a rather good place for Indian food lovers. I think it's the only place in Almaty where you can practically feel that special atmosphere. My friend and I enjoyed it so much. The food is very nice, and the ladies in Indian outfit are very affable. So, I really enjoyed being there.

I've been to several veggie cafes in Russia, with either Indian and European cuisine, but this place in Almaty still beats them all in terms of the main thing - the FOOD (but I must admit, Rada & Co. in St.Petersburg comes pretty close). My first visit to Govinda's was something like four or five years ago, I haven't been... More

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

it's a bit tough to find, and you might get distracted by yammy Georgian restaurant that is right across the street, but really, if you miss or crave good Indian food - go to Govindas! food and service is great. just mind: it is all vegetarian. and make sure to ask for their lassie - so goooooood! haven't been there...
