Devotional cooking - Edit

I visit Govinda's almost every Saturday for the vegetarian lunch club (they don't have the veg club on Thursdays anymore). The dishes are Indian "thali" style often with rice, subji, chutney, puri, lassi or chai and salad. Sometimes you get samosas, pancackes, pakoras on some other surprises. Every week has different meny and although mainly lacto-vegetarian there can be some vegan option too. Taste is guaranteed delicious as the Hare Krishnas cook with devotion. In practice the lunch costs 6€ and often you can get extra sweets or cake for a small donation. Great tasteful experience but some determination is sometimes needed to get in - the doorbell at the gate sometimes does not work and you have to climb some stairs - but the trouble is rewarded. Oh, and in addition to the Saturday lunch they have the Sunday feast starting at 16:00 every Sunday, where there is a great and free (donations accepted) vegetarian feast at the end of the temple program.

Pros: delicious, good value

Cons: sometimes hard to get in

Excellent Menus - Edit

I really enjoyed the atmosphere here. The Hare Krishna devotees were very friendly and hospitable. They have a lunch club on Thursdays between 11 am to 3 pm and on Saturdays- 12 pm- 4 pm.
Excellent healthy Lacto-vegetarian food both Indian and Westernstyle.
