Respond to Review of Govinda

Review: My boyfriend and I ate lunch here seeing as it was close to where we were staying. I am a bit of a fiend for Indian food and always try to get some in every city :) Vegan menu items are not marked and so I tried to pick out a few dishes which seemed as if they might be vegan, but unfortunately most of them seemed to be either creamy or cheesy. When the waiter came to take our order I asked if the dishes I had selected were vegan. He checked with me what I meant by vegan (which seemed strange but maybe it was a language barrier thing) and told me that yes they were. We had vegetable pakoras as a starter which were served to us with yoghurt sauce, which was luckily on the side. For mains we chose a spinach, aubergine and mushroom dish, and a cauliflower and potato dish, with rice and pappadums. Both curries were served in big portions but were quite bland, nothing special. Our waiter was friendly and the space was pleasant. The bill was pretty high - at over 40 euros for one starter, two mains, some rice and pappadums and water it is probably the most expensive Indian meal I've ever had in Europe. To be honest, if I wanted Indian in Barcelona again I would probably choose a omni restaurant over this one.
