“Great casual vegetarian cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food is made with love, it is healthy & value for many & portions are filling. Casual cafe like dining but very busy. Suggestion: Grab takeaway & sit on Burleigh hill & enjoy both the food & scenery.

“simply yum yum yum, non vego's even will love it! very popular and inexpensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

One of the best places to frequent on the Gold Coast
In James st Burleigh which also happens to be my favourite street on the Gold Coast too, because it's so eclectic and different. Govindas is very busy though and there's usually a line of people waiting to be served but the line moves pretty quickly and I have never been unable to get a table if I want to eat in. The food is always exceptionally fresh because it's so popular and it has a nice friendly environment since a lot of people who are attracted to this place are vego's or alternate lifestyle types who seem to like to be positive and friendly, so now what can I say?? JUST GO! eat out or in, up to you ....... it's all good either way!

“Great salads”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

We go here when we want a fix of veg. They have the best salads...so tasty & very filling. Hard to go past...but always frantically busy at lunchtime. Well worth the wait though!!

“Great value vegetarian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Although the menu is simple as with all Govindas restaurants the food is delicious and there is usually a choice of the vegetarian curry, potato bake, pasta and an assortment of excellent salads. It gets hectically busy at lunch (the word is out) but worth it as the value for money is unbeatable. One issue is that the tables are not cleared fast enough when it gets busy so used plates can pile up on the tables.

“Reliable and good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I have eaten at Govindas many times and as recently as early January 2013. The food is good value for what it is: vegetarian, Indian styled. It's a simple cafe for eat in or take away. Samosa is good (mostly potatoes with a few peas), Dahl and veg curries all tasty. The lemon and ginger drink is refreshing. Worth a visit for a good value lunch.
