Loved this place. Best veggie food I have found in a long time. Very small and crowded restaurant but well worth the visit.

The food is tasty, however, the location is small and if you choose to dine in at an available table (if there is one) you will have people lining up in front of you as you eat. You will have them pushing into you, bottoms in faces and it gets pretty warm in there. Take it away and go and... More

Healthy, happy food in a sometimes crowded bustling little restaurant. If you hang around for a seat it won't take too long it is not a place to sit around and take in the ambiance.

James Street is my favourite local shopping are on the Coast, and whenever I visit I stop into Govindas. Be you vegetarian or not, the food is consistently high quality, fast, incredibly yummy and makes your insides feel wonderful. The little shop can get very very busy at times. An early dinner or lunch is a way to miss the... More

Great food. Courteous service. Reasonably priced. Nice ambience. BUT why do they have the bloody ceiling fans ON in WINTER ! They are ON for the STAFF not the PATRONS. Food goes cold and you need to wear thermals.

I like Govindas a lot, because the food is good wholesome vegetarian style and represents great value for money. I tend to visit once a week. Only criticism, the menu rarely varies! But I will keep going, either to eat in which is easy. very casual, there's great staff or to take out!

Great service, food is always tasty, but the cafe is always crowded - wish they would move somewhere easier to park and with more seating

I only have good things to say about Govindas. The food is excellent. The kofta is one of the best things I have ever eaten ever. I had it with a different sauce here. And it was excellent (it was some sort of satay sauce, I think... I can't exactly remember, but trust me when I say it was delicious.)... More

Bought some takeaway salads. We're delicious. Didn't eat in as it was quite busy. Individual I was with said most of the food was being deep fried that wasn't in the window ready to go. Would go back again and try eating in. Perfect spot on James street.
