“Tasty vegetarian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I had a lovely lunch in Govinda's with my daughter and enjoyed a tasty vegetarian plate. We both found that the small plate was certainly sufficient, with a variety of hot dishes and some salads. As a non-vegetarian, I often find vegetable-only dishes bland, but this was delicious and certainly very good value. All the food is meat-free and is also dairy-free. Service was friendly and helpful, explaining what was in each dish. The decor and seating were plain and quite basic, but I found it a good city-centre location to go for a lunch break.

“Just awful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Went here looking for some good authentic Indian veggie food, however we walked in and found canteen food with no taste. Basically it was bland slop on a plate! Yes the quantity was vast but surly quality is better than quantity???? Very disappointed!

“Great cantina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

Local vegetarian cantina. They offer 2 soups of the day, a bowl @ app. 4 eur. The day we went to Govindas the dish of the day was a pumpkin pie ( very tasty) and other dishes included Tofu ragout, and a few veg curries ( quite spicy). You can chose anything you want in a small plate (@7 eur) or in a big plate (@10.45 eur). The plates get fully loaded - the folks are really generous there ! Good place for a quick veggie lunch.

“Budget food if you want quantity, nothing more”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

The food served is good quantity & filling, but if you are looking at taste or ambience as a factor, you better scale your expectations down. The service is just okay and if you want to accommodate 3 people in about Euro 20, you should be fine.
