Location and contact

Wholesome Natural Vegetarian Food. (Prasadam) Our aim is to provide fresh, nutritious meals at affordable prices. We serve a wide variety of pure vegetarian cuisine, which is freshly cooked on the premises throughout the day. All of our products are meat, fish and egg free with many dishes suitable for vegans too. We do not use onions, garlic or mushrooms. Try the thali (it literally means plate) which consists of 2 sabjis (vegetable dishes), rice, bread, and a side salad. More conventional dishes include pizza, lasagna, veggie burgers, egg-free quiche or one of our delicious spinach rolls, all of which can be served with salad. There are over ten different types of fresh salads available daily

I visit Govinda's every time I travel to London, as it is the only eatery I know of that is allium-free. While the food is nice (it has a canteen-feel about it, and the food is microwaved and almost always served cold in the centre,...More

Couldn't be more central - adjacent to Soho Square Gardens which is a pleasant chill out place - early evening, anyway! 5 mins from Tottenham Court Road tube.

Really great vegetarian food and not at all expensive. The dhal, beans, creamy paneer and yellow rice are my favourites. The food is consistent, mild enough for anyone not keen on spicy Indian cuisine. Most of the servers are friendly and welcoming although there are...More
