We had lunch here for 3.25 dollars with a soup, a hot plate and a juice. Super good and portions are big. Definitly recommend.

We decided to order off the menu rather than do the set/buffet lunch which may have been an issue as they didn‘t have their pizzas nor pesto sauce for pasta so my children tried the veg burgers. It was definitely not to their liking -...More

We went for the almuerzo (set menu lunch). It was inexpensive at $3.25 pp for soup, rice dish with salad, and a drink (banana lassi in our case). They serve a filling meal at a very good price. It isn't, however, a taste experience. Not...More

We headed in here for the almuerzo which we thoroughly enjoyed. $3.50 for a delicious soup followed by aubergine pakora with brown or white rice, three salads and sauce. Also included a choice of drink. Everything was very tasty, great value!

We really enjoyed our “almuerzo” (fixed price lunch) at this restaurant. For $3.25 each, we had vegetable soup with quinoa, a plate of lentils with brown rice and both small green and beet salads, and a beverage. You get the almuerzo at the serving counter...More

We have to start by saying that we are not picky at all.... BUT: The salad wasn’t fresh at all, feels like the vegetable was defrost and the sauce was from a bought bottle. We asked a vegan burger and got one with cheese, the...More

I’ve eaten at Govinda’s in several countries, and this one is probably the best I’ve tried in terms of flavor. Govinda’s everywhere is reliable for vegetarian food that’s pretty healthy, but flavor varies greatly, and this one serves a good variety of flavorful dishes. Their...More
