The food was good here. We managed to try some new dishes that we had never tasted before. The place is very busy. The staff do not seem to be too friendly. My understanding is that this is not an all you can eat buffet - You basically get a plate and you help yourself to what you want. Once... More

This had been touted as a really awesome place and the reviews here corroborated the perception. We landed with high hopes of an awesome meal in a not-so-great ambiance. The expectations were reasonably set. The place is pretty ok - in the same campus as the ISKON temple. It is a buffet spread that is definitely not 'cheap' - somehow... More

An amazing variety of hygenically prepared Indian Vegetatian food that is out of the world. We loved each of the items served especially the desserts and sweets. You must visit this place.

What I am going to write about is not the food quality or ambiance of Govinda’s Restaurant (which is Fine as per me), but the inhuman approach of a Restaurant like Govinda’s. I went to Govinda’s restaurant yesterday night along with my family and purchased coupons for the buffet (the only option available). By the time our dinner was over,... More

Besides being one of the biggest vegetarian restaurants in Bombay, it is beautifully decorated, has delicious food with authentic tastes and the buffet, besides being a bargain in Bombay, offers a huge and always changing selection.

The restaurant is basically located inside the ISCON temple in Juhu and follows the buffet system. The food is of high quality and the standards are maintained in every dish. The dishes are mainly simple dishes with tweaks here n there from the chefs which tastes delicious. The ambience is very soothing and comforting. It's a must visit for a... More

Govinda has been one of my fav places to go for pure veg food since childhood.So it pains me to share the view that it has progressively deteriorated year on year. Instead of u go to any restaurant like RK or Golden Chariot ur per head cost wud be around 400 and still get fresh food and good taste. Food... More

I am sorry but the food & restaurant is too much hyped. I do come to Mumbai often, & every time I do visit Isckon temple Juhu regulary. Today I deceided to try a buffet lunch at Govinda's, taste was not so great, sweet was not so sweet. According to me price (450/= rs. Per person) is too much compare... More

Easily the best vegetarian sattvic buffet that can be had in Bombay. The quality of what you get here is the best. Save room for the dessert. Super heavy - if you eat lunch here you won't be able to eat dinner! All the food is cooked in pure ghee!
