“nice healthy meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The Govinda kitchen is similar to many of the Bhakti Vedanta kitchens. The focus is on nutrition and hygiene more than the taste. For example during my visit there was ginger juice on offer and for those who do not know, ginger is an excellent digestive.
The meal is also very balanced and the quantity is not designed to stuff, eat only what is necessary as described in the Vedas.

I was so pleased that I wanted to go there one more time but got to know that they are closed on Sundays or at least it was on that day.

“good quality/price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Nice food, reasonable price....you can stuff yourself with the menu for two people for only 2990 ft. The restaurant/self service is nice and clean. Also the lady at the counter very friendly and helpful. Recommended.

“Excellent Vegetarian Indian food at reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Our dinner here tonight was surprisingly good. We shared a meal for two but really it was enough for four. Very tasty - quite different to the standard Indian food - maybe a mix of Hungarian in this but we thoroughly enjoyed it. For 2950 HUF or AU$15 for the 2 of us it was fabulous value.
A friend in Hungary recommended we go there and she was right. It is casual eating but there were lots of people eating there.

“Tolleable resemblance to Indian food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

the hotel was located in a nice calm area. the design of the hotel was done tastefully. the food was given in a large portion, but the taste was not much resembling to the Indian food taste, later we found that it was an Hungarian cook who learnt to cook Indian food and he is preparing those dishes. not bad !!!! there was only limited choice of the food. so we could not explore much . overall safe vegan food.

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Difficult to locate. Finally, when we did find it, the food though fresh, tasty and servings large, was cold. Indian food MUST be served and eaten hot. The dessert though given a traditional Indian name had little semblance to anything normally eaten in India. Prices were reasonable by local standards - not cheap but competitively priced. Of the two ladies on attendance to serve, one was friendly but the other was distinctly irritable and impatient and not even courteous.
