GovindaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s is a buffet restaurant situated inside the premises of Iskcon (Hare Rama Hare Krishna) Temple. The area surrounding the place is tranquil and the garden behind it has a calming effect.
The dining hall is large with artistic interiors and comfortable seating. The food is considered as a prashaad (offering) of Lord Krishna. For Rs 300 (Rs 350 on Sundays) a large variety is available; spring rolls, hara bhara kababs, pastas, mexican rolls and more make up the starter menu.
The main course includes Punjabi and Rajasthani vegetable dishes (falls a little short of perfection!) served with parathas, rotis and puris along with dal, dahi curry and rice.
An array of desserts is then laid out, if you have the stomach for it.
live a stone's throw away from ISKON and have been goin to Govinda since I was a kid...just one word- the food is divine, its pure veg, cooked in pure ghee and all the food there is ' bhog' as in offered to God b4 served to customers. they offer thalis which are great- like 10 different sabjis and the chaas/ lime juice given at the beginning just set the mood for a chappan bhog expereince. their' pakoda platter' is too good with atleast 5-6 different types of fried appetiuzers served with amazing garlic chutneys- ambience good too- loads of foreignors and rich Juhu familes
prices have increased wAy too much in the last couple of years
