What a welcome find this was in Mendoza. We ate here and at the other Govinda (located more centrally) and both had delicious, healthy snack options as well as more filling dishes. Way too many for me to document here but you won't be disappointed with the range or the quality! Simply delicious! The juices are great too - I... More

The food was well seasoned and offered a huge selection at a very reasonable price. Be sure not to arrive late as trays are not replenished. A cafeteria style allows you to see what you select if your Spanish is insufficient. Price is determined by the weight of the plate.

A buffet of vegetarian food. The tofu was just like real meat and was tasty. They then weigh your food and you get a drink.

Having eaten our way through Argentine meat dishes over the past two weeks, it was nice to try something different. Govinda offers an incredible array of vegetarian dishes and delicious fresh juices. The restaurant operates self service and you pay by weight (about 180 pesos per kilo), so you can have more of what you like without worrying about how... More

In a country where meat reigns, this place is a godsend. It has many different dishes to choose from, and since it's a buffet style/pay by the kilo restaurant, you can eat as much as you want of these very, very delicious dishes. The spices are perfect: a lot of Hindu-style flavors, and the variety makes you want to return... More

Having eaten here recently, the options for food were average. Food in the buffet trays went cold quickly, and cannelloni, spring rolls etc were cold to eat (not a fan of cold food). Reasonable. 120ars per kilo to take away and 160ars to eat at the restaurant. The Dessert gulab jamun was very good. Don't think I would go again... More
