We took lunch at Govinda during our day long sight seeing tour. The food was very good. The dal soup was very good and highly recommended.
The staff knows english. They accept euros also.
I like the ambience of hotel. If you are taking hop on-off bus. The place is very convenient.

We are 4 veggies who love Indian food. We dropped in as we were going on a night cruise along the Danube so went for our tea!
If you are tall be prepared to duck on the way in! It's in a sort of tunnel underground!
Lovely kind of Krishna vibe going on,ladies dressed in sari type clothing,and a type of canteen style service.
The food was amazing,my son had the pepper pakora with spicy chili bean pasta and loved it. We had the veg curry,cous cous with tofu,chick pea curry,turmeric rice,celery pakora,dhal,pourris,and spinach rice and it was all gorgeous and huge servings. The food is served on tali style plates and we had home made ginger and rose lemonade which was fab! This place must be popular because the food was mostly nearly all gone.
For dessert we had a soya chocolate mousse a sort of chocolate swiss roll and chocolate cherry cake,the mousse was gorgeous!
The prices are so reasonable and had we gone thee earlier we would have eaten there every day! They spoke german better than english and really enjoyed hubby's sense of humour!!
Lovely chic interior,if you are veggie or vegan you will luv it! Surprised to find such a lovely veggie place in meaty Budapest!
Teenagers cleared their plates! Much better than anything we ate elsewhere!

Food was okay but bland. Good and filling and cheap. Uninterested staff, wouldn't go back. Not much atmosphere either.

My wife & I like Indian vegetarian cooking. We ate at Govindas three times - very tasty, good variety, inexpensive - ~10 Euros for a huge meal for two people, drinks included. It's a 5 minutes walk from St Stephens Basilica.

We went to this place on our first day at Budapest and was taken by surprise both by quality and quantity of food. The food was liked by my children too and we went again to the restaurant on our last day. Highly recommend this place.
