I don't like writing this review but it's truthful and my experience. I went to Govindas on Thanksgiving for the first time, since it had read good reviews and was excited to enjoy a vegetarian meal on this special holiday. They were serving until 7:00...More

Govinda’s is a real local Tucson gem serving delicious vegan meals. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing. The outside grounds are beautiful. There are vegan entrees and sides that are wonderfully prepared and seasoned. It also has an interesting gift shop.

Wonderful outdoor seating with water feature, tables with umbrellas and live music which isn't overpowering. Delicious healthy food, amazing cashew salad dressing...crumb cake... Yogurt with fresh fruit and scrambled egg mix. Love this place and the koi pond in the back of building.

Govinda’s is the best, freshest, clean vegetarian food in Tucson (in my opinion!) Even if you aren’t a huge Indian-style food fan, the cuisine at Govinda’s has plenty of fresh delicious options, all-you-can-eat lunch and dinner buffet, cooked with love and consciousness, indoor seating as...More
