This is an excellent little vegetarian restaurant serving delicious food at a bargin price. For $2.25 you can have a hearty, healthy three course lunch. There is no menu you just get what they have cooked that day and service is quick and efficient. It is a whole-food type meal and my Husband who is a meat eater really enjoyed it! Behind the restaurant there is a pretty courtyard and small shop.

We do not eat meat. Everyone who is like us and travels, knows that Latin America is the most difficult continent to get cooked food to make us happy. Govinda's is definitely a great one. We had fresh Orange juice, soup, brown rice cooked with vegetables, vegetable Kofta, salad, beans, plantain, hot sauce, and dessert for $2.25. The amount was huge. We did not need to eat any dinner. It is a clean, fun place in the middle of Old Town. The only reason I did not give a 5 star is the fact that the food was not hot. It was served room temperature (except the soup). But I have to admit that in Indian homes food usually gets served at room temperature. We are going back there again on Monday and probably on Tuesday as well. They are open only for lunch. At exactly 12 PM the doors open. It is a buffet style place but not self served. There are tables in the court yard as well. The store sells really good looking snacks and desserts. I should try some of these next time.
