First Review by teafour2

It was ok - Edit

I ate at Govinda's in Lund and was super happy with the food, so I was excited to try the one in Gothenburg. There was nothing wrong with it, but it didn't live up the same flavor and atmosphere as the one in Lund. It was actually a smidge bland, which I was not expecting. However, since it is a lunch place, you should keep in mind that it all depends on what is on offer for the day.

The portions were small, but I was full, so no complaints there. The meal was nutritionally balanced.

Pros: sauces and chutneys, price

Cons: only opened for lunch

Friendly and Tasty - Edit

A popular place for locals, but only open Monday to Friday for lunch. With a different option on offer each day. Simple and tasty food, which includes bahjis, mild but spiced curry, soup, poppodums, bread, salad, chutney's and seconds if you can manage it. Staff are lovely and speak English. 75kr and a mango lassi is also included.

Pretty good - Edit

Let's be clear, Govindas is a Krishna place and Krishnas are about simple living, so don't expect anything flashy. The place has a very calming atmosphere - the food selection changes daily and while everything is vegetarian, not all is vegan. We had some very nice bahjis and a mild curry and rice dish and poppadom (buffet style - they serve you a plate - you can go back for seconds if you wish. It wasn't expensive and the food was decent enough.
