Respond to Review of Govinda's Vegetarian Buffet
Review: If you're looking for delicious vegetarian/vegan food in an informal setting, Govinda's is a great choice. The energy of this place is wonderful; it's very clean, and the owner is always pleasant and greets each customer as they come in. Each time I've been there, the salad bar is crisp and fresh and the homemade dressings are delicious. As a vegan, I especially love that anything containing dairy is clearly marked. The pea dal is exceptional - and addicting! While the selection is a bit limited, it is all very flavorful and obviously prepared with love and care. And you always feel delightful after eating there, no funky heavy post-restaurant blues. :-) The only real drawback is the lack of organic ingredients. I've experienced very few restaurants that have such a consistent positive vibe. The building is small (it used to be a dairy queen) and sweetly decorated with framed Krishna prints. It's full of light, colorful, and clean. And it's inexpensive. One of my faves in Eugene!
