I went here quite often on my last stint in Brisbane an upon returning the food is still very good. For $12.90 you get eat as much as you want, inclusive of a dessert and drink. Take-away options are also cheap, at $8 for large (not the feast-meal which is still 12.90 take-away), and progressively cheaper for smaller sizes.

Very filling and tasty. The atmosphere and interior is spartan and not of much interest. Just off Queen Street Mall.

Sundays there is a different feast meal from 5-7pm for $5 which also involves some Hare Krishna activities like chanting and dancing.

I eat there now and again. I think it is very good value as for about $12.90 you get a massive plate of assorted vegetarian hot foods, some salad and a poppadum, a delicious ginger, lemon and mint drink and a small dessert. The restaurant isn't easy to find being upstairs but is only one block from Queen Street Mall. The décor is not in the least fancy and although it is run by Hare Krishna, anyone can eat there.

I love Govindas. The food is tasty, value and quick. Three ticks. Only pretentious people used to paying a solid part of their salary for a tablespoon of food in a 'fashionable' restaurant disprove of this Vegetarian paradise. WOOOOOOOOOOOH. :D
Try it for yourself; you won't be disappointed. :)

Went there with discount vouchers and I'm happy I didn't pay full price. The so-called 'feast' consisted of a stodgy and extremely bland curry, a soggy papadum and a sickeningly sweet ball of semolina floating in awful, gelatinous custard. The home-made drink was pretty bad too.

This was the food the hare krishna sales reps would hand out for free at uni in exchange for listening to their spiel. OK when free.

The place has a run-down vibe that may appeal to a certain clientele. If the food were OK, then whatever, but the combination of both made for an experience I never wish to repeat.

I recently purchased a groupon for a cooking class and meal at Govindas. I actually purchased it without noticing it was a vegetarian class. I am 100% beef eater, but to be honest, i was pleasently surprised on how much i enjoy the meal. THe cooking class itself was just okay. It was all demonstration - i would have rather been able to get in there and do some of the cooking myself. The location is pretty good as it is right off the queen st mall (meyers centre), but is tucked up away in the 1st floor of a smaller building. Not the most visually appealing place in Brisbane. But i left the meal extremely full, and was rather satisified being it was a vegetarian meal. Prices looked really reasonable as well. The chef is extremely passionate about his food, and i think that is really why this place has been popular amongst the veggy crowd. If the restaurant had a better atmosphere and a bit more visually appealing, i would come back. But i am probably a 1-timer at this restaurant.
