Govinda's is an amazing Hare Krishna Indian restaurant in Kampala, the only reliable place to eat that we found. We ate they almost everyday, enjoying their delicious spicy and only vegetarian food! In the day they provide a thali buffet for 1200 Ugs under £3's.

The staff were very friendly and after a while we got to know and become friends with the staff and were invited up to the hare krishna temple above where we were looked after and welcomed into their way of live. We had many spiritual chats and even ended up using their kitchen to cook and provide food to the orphanage and community that we were working (Well it wasn't work but more like living!) If you vist please send our love to them as they are dearly missed. ( From Tobi and Catarina)

Also got addicted to the ridiculously sugary Indian sweets which is dangerous so be careful.

Pros: Only Veg!, Friendly!, Tasty and Cheap!
Cons: Shuts at 9pm

Big menu

Quite an extensive menu, of veggie Indian food.

We ordered dosa, which was a bit sad and soggy, especially in contrast to the really good dosa in the nearby food courty at Garden City mall.

The rather grey looking buffet didn't look too appetising.

The restaurant is quite nice looking, spacious, fairly busy at lunchtime.

(There is also a great juice shop just up the street, which is a plus reason to come to this spot).

Pros: Big menu
Cons: Lower quality
