“delicious food with vegan options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Govinda's weekend menu has a lot of choices for a reasonable price, about 17-18 euros with 2 plates, bread, dessert and a drink (they don't serve alcohol). The food is really delicious and the dessert was really tasty as well! They even have vegan ice cream! I'll definitely go back!

“Good Option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

If you are wanting vegetarian food Indian style then it is a good option. I had briyani which not anywhere close to authentic was tasty nevertheless. A vegetable curry with cottage cheese was equally good.

The cooking style is Indian though taste not truly representative. However it is a good vegetarian restauarnt and if craving for home food (for Indians) it would be worth a visit.

The tea is good

“A good vegetarian option in Barcelona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We tried the veg thali and also roti wt cauliflower and potato curry.
The dishes were pretty good and served generous quantities.
The paneer and the rotisserie were strictly average ,but the rest of the fare was good.
Tha ambience was pleasnt and clean,great location,service by the ever smiling Esther was excellent.
Certainly worth a visit for any vegetarian food lover

“Interesting and Unique Choice of Vegetarian Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

This restaurant is close to the North end of La Rambla. Definitely worth visiting if like me you have an interest in vegetarian food. Good flavours and some interesting choice of dishes.

I and my family are not so keen on paneer (indian cheese). Paneer features a lot on the menu, even in Samosas, so this limited our options a little. However, the aubergine dish, spring rolls, pakoras and the Veg biryani had good flavours and did not disappoint.

We visited this restaurant in the evening. It lacked ambience and was virtually empty. With hindsight, it would have been better to visit this restaurant during lunchtime.

Meal for a famly of 4 came to 55 Euros. Not excessively expensive but also not cheap.

“A great Indian Choice in Barcelona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This restaurant is well located close to Las Ramblas, it is not at all touristy. The food is delicious and the service is good. It is well priced and quick. It is all vegetarian but there are a lot of choices. It is a good choice if you are gluten free too, there are many options. Enjoy!
