Good food, but needs better clarity about vegan items - Edit

Govinda is one of the better vegetarian restaurants in Mendoza, and (along with its sister location downtown) the only veg option in town that's open for dinner.

There's a reasonably good buffet selection, offering plenty of choice for lacto-vegetarians and roughly a dozen items for vegans, give or take.

Unfortunately, they aren't consistently well organized in the way they set out the vegan items, making it hard to tell for sure which items are vegan. There is a section that is labeled "vegan," but individual items aren't always labeled, and there are also a few vegan items placed randomly around the other tables, so vegans really need to inquire to be sure.

The other issue here (as with so many other Argentinian veg restaurants) is that the buffet food gets cold quickly and the only option for warming it up is a microwave oven, which has harmful effects both on nutrition and texture. It would be better if they would use the steam tables to keep the hot food hot, and also provide a conventional toaster-oven as an option for reheating items that have gotten cold.

Service was warm and helpful, and prices are reasonable.

Pros: Some vegan items (though one needs to ask), open for dinner

Cons: Microwave ovens

delicious buffet - Edit

Buffet was good, but more vegan options needed. A little bit more expensive than other veg places in Mendoza. Nice modern interior. I don't recommend the vegan cakes- a little bit artificial tasting.
Arrive early- things sell out!

Pros: interesting dishes, nice interior plus wifi

Cons: tad pricey, needs more vegan dishes

calling all the vegans in the house! - Edit

This is definitely worth a meal while in Mendoza. Lots of vegan options, all clearly marked with the v-leaf. Interesting food fusions of Argentina, Asian, and Indian influences. You will leave full and happy!
Plus, the space is bright and clean. An easy place to relax and spend a few hours at.
There are also foods and organic products for sale.

fine choice - Edit

govinda had a decent vegan section, and the staff was helpful in pointing out other vegan items not placed in that section. the restaurant is located a bit outside the center of the city, but worth a visit.

very good veggie food, nice atmosphere - Edit

Govinda in one of the best veggie restaurants I've visited, lot of veggie options, clearly labeled vegan section, home made fruit juice / beverages (lemon ginger is great!), in a nice atmosphere -recommend upstairs-.
Very tasty, with a bit of Indian style (but not spicy).

Pros: veggie choices, tasty, cozy atmosphere

Open everyday! - Edit

It was open even on Easter weekend, when everything else was closed. There is a great buffet but without a tenedor-libre option. You can buy only by weight (April.12: 45 peso por kilo). Even 15 minutes before the end of lunch time the variety of dishes was very good. Lots of delicious bakery. Some spicy things, all food is special, not just to full a stomach. Plenty of meat subsistutes.
There is a bar with desserts and drinks that is available between lunch and dinner.
there is free wifi.
