“Give it a miss...”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

I heard Govinda's was the best vegetarian food in Sydney, so I decided to give it a go and was sadly disappointed! If chips, papadums, one soup and a bowl of plain lettuce for salad is the best they can do, I would give it a miss! The service was ok, but the whole experience was not worth it... even the cinema was quite poor - I would rather pay the same price and see a movie in a proper theatre with real projection and sound equipment so you can enjoy the movie!

“Fantastic food, friendly staff and great value”
Reviewed February 23, 2009

I very much enjoyed last Saturday night at Govinda's. The staff were all friendly and the food was delicious. Two members of our group weren't vegetarians but still loved the food and they usually moan if a meal doesn't include meat/fish.

The buffet was constantly replenished, tidied and cleaned. Everything tasted fresh and the dishes had some amazing flavours.

It was great to chill out and put our feet up whilst we watched a film in the Movie Room afterwards. The bed style seating is a fantastic idea, especially after such a big meal.

The buffet and movie package was such good value. Both for under $30. I'll certainly be visiting again and I've already recommended it to friends and colleagues.

All you eat vegitarian - what's not to like. And the movie theatre is very cool. But it is the same veg food all the time - they need to change it around a bit.
