Actually, I think I'm being biased because I've been to the original ISKCON temple in Mumbai (Which is GORGEOUS by the way!), and the food choices are too many to name here. The Govinda's here serves ok food. not too many options. But that also might be because I'm Indian, so I expect more from restaurants serving Indian food. Overall,... More

Govinda's is a solid vegetarian buffet when you are looking to get a fill of salad with dressing, rotating and continually prepared hot food, fresh dessert and even add on a vegan cupcake or a samosa to your buffet delight. Open for breakfast and lunch and suitable for families or on a solo run. I've enjoyed every meal I've had... More

I went to Govinda's with two people to try the $8 dinner buffet. We had salad with a variety of toppings, fruit, hummus, curry and rice, soup, and various side dishes. (We were told that not all of the dishes are organic.) One of the people in our party is a big meat-eater, but he was halfway through his meal... More

I really enjoyed eating at Govinda's. The buffet was only $8 per person. I am not sure if everything was organic, but the vegetables were fresh and tasty. My favorite item was dessert. It was almost like a farina with raisins and cinnamon. Delicious!!! Everyone we encountered there was super nice and helpful. I will return when I visit LA... More

Great selections of appetizers, salads, entres and deserts for everyone but especially for Vegetarians and Vegans. Wonderful atmosphere, spotlessly clean and friendly staff. Great gift shop up stairs and if your in the mood a meditative spirit in the Hare Krishna Temple next door. A must visit when your in LA of Venice Beach.

Govinda's has a great salad bar and buffet, and the desserts are even better! The halava in the buffet, laced with carob (a healthier cocoa), was out of this world! I can still taste it. . . . Although a buffet, the service at this restuarant was amazing, especially the wonderfully sweet and considerate lady at the register. We were... More

What a find! A vegetarian restaurant (with many vegan choices). Food is prepared in loving service to Lord Krsna. What could be better? Really nice workers, lots of variety, freshness abounds.
