Very sweet and simple
Posted on 09 / 20 / 2007
Well, after walking nearly 45mins to try to find Govinda's, I realised that it isn't really that complicated. The problem is that the block numbers are all scattered. I would suggest walking along the railway tracks until you get to block 15 then turn left until you get to block 17. Once I arrived, I was surprised at how small the place was, but I was lucky to get a table. I ordered the spinach curry set. I ate it quite quickly and I think it's not because the portions were small, it was that it was soooo light. However, after my yummy berry berry tart, my tummy was satisfied. The place is run by a couple of cute Hare Krisnas who are very soft spoken and sweet. I ordered 4 samosas to go and later ate them with my boyfriend. They were heaven. A bit pricey (4 for 1000yen) compared to the price of samosas in Canada (3-4 for a dollar). They even have a members card and when you fill it (I believe it takes 20 visits) you get two pieces of cake! Everyone who came in seemed to be regulars and I think I'll definately be one too!
Good variety on menu, Good value for mains, Non-dairy, no sugar desserts
Hard to find, Not enough seating
