I love this place! I don't know how I didn't know about Govinda's until fairly recently, but I've now been several times, on various nights, and have always caught myself saying "MMMMmmmm... this is so good!!" Always plenty of vegan options... Don't forget to try the homemade chai, with a vegan cookie to dip it in. The love is made right into the food; you can taste it. Delicious!

Pros: delicious food, lots of vegan options, chill atmosphere
Cons: self service a bit confusing

The new management is greedy. They look at how much food you eat. I ate just 2 plates of rice, and vegetables, but the cashier guy told me I eat 3 people's food! This was because I asked for my student discount. I even emailed them about the issue, but nothing worked. The old management gave me discount for couple years, I miss those guys a lot.

Not good

The hosts are friendly, but the buffet was not very good. Lukewarm and just not much better than cafeteria food. It would not be a place to take omnivores (unless you want to turn them off from meatless eating).

This little restaurant is buffet style Indian cuisine. Everything seems very healthy. Their Italian dressing is AMAZING! And the salad bar is organic to boot. Definitely try them out! And try their homemade vegan cookies!

Pros: Affordable, Delicious, Healthy
Cons: None

This is my first time, but I am very impressed. I was welcomed at the door and given a tour of the restaurant and of the buffet. Today, the buffet was all vegan. I am told that lunches are usually all vegan and the dinners will have an entree with dairy.

The buffet was fresh, tasty, and well stocked. I got my money's worth. :)

This restaurant has been around for a long time. I've been visiting it for nearly three decades and have never been disappointed. There is no menu, you pay one price at the door and eat all you can for the a good selection of items. They have salads, pizza, italian dishes, baked goods, sauces, desert, and so much more. You can pick up a month's menu to see what is being served when but no matter what day I go I have been very happy with the selection. The space is not very large but I have never had a problem finding a seat, or sharing a table with someone. I highly suggest this place.

Pros: Very clean, Healthy Homemade food, Always fresh & delicious
Cons: Not a whole lot only some might not like, it is part of the Krishna temple.
