We loved this place when we holidayed here last year but found it a bit lacking this time. The mango sago puddings were still good but the kofta balls were hard, dry and tasteless. Also, rather than being chilled the staff were a bit arrogant. It felt more like the all you can eat Govindas buffet in Surfers. Could be... More

Excellent Vegan place that we come to a lot while on holiday. But not all people who eat Vegan want to have Hari Krishna songs playing non stop loudly in your ear. It's actually unpleasant and makes you want to just get up and leave. Was thinking of coming down tonight but actually just couldn't take the thought of that... More

Best place for a quick take-out that you can eat on the beach. The queues speak volumes about the food at Govindas. Specialty meals differ on different days of the week. The lasagne and Shepherd's pie are my favourites but then the koftas, curries and salads are delicious too. Easy meals for the whole family - gluten and dairy free... More

When you see people waiting its a good indication the food is great. Staff get through the throng quickly. Even for non vegetarian there is something to eat.
