Good, reliable, honest nutritious vegan food with love

$10 for all you can eat is a blessing especially for those who have few $. We go there regularly because we love the simplicity and the spirituality of the place and people. If you're satisfied with a simple and very limited menu in a quiet simple dining room then this place will be OK or better for you. If you are a food snob...well...just don't bother. We love it.

Pros: simple nutritious food, quiet, spiritual feel, Soup on rice

Cons: I'm not big on their dessert but then I'm usually , Shoes are left at the door and my feet get cold..

Solid value

All you can eat buffet style subcontinental food. The food is reasonably spicy, but won't make you sweat.

The broccoli has been cooked to perfection. Optimal crunch factor.

All plates, cups and utensils are disposable, so be sure to bring your own if you can.

all you can eat

Hari Krishna all-you-can-eat buffet. Pay $10 and serve yourself. Always has rice, lentil soup, two hot vegetable-based dishes (often one or both are spicy), Halava, Vegan Halava, salad with lettuce, broccoli, carrot, and capsicum, and salad dressing. Hari Krishna is not vegan but most of the dishes other than the halava are vegan. Plus they have a vegan halava.

Pros: Lots to eat, Cheap

Cons: Serve yourself, Not too many options


02 Mar 2020

Thank you for the feedback. We have now introduced plenty of options like Roti, Samosas, Pies, Papadums and Lassi. Please come and try our new options

Best Value in ADL

$10 will get you an all-you-can-eat feast of delicious vegan curries and fresh salad. There's also a halava, a semolina dessert available. One is vegan and one contains dairy. The only other non-vegan item is custard. Hands down the best value feed in Adelaide. It's at a temple so footwear is required to be removed before entering. EFTPOS is available. The outdoors area is open for warmer evenings.
Tip: only disposable cutlery and crockery is available. Help reduce waste and bring your own bowl and spoon!

Pros: Very cheap, Tasty, Healthy

Cons: Only disposable cutlery and crockery

Thank you for the feedback. We have moved away from disposal cutlery and have introduced proper restaurant grade plates and bowls and stainless steel spoons, forks and knives. We also have special plates and bowls for kids under 5.

$8 All You Can Eat Veg/Vegan

Govinda's is a great place to go Friday, Saturday or Sunday night if you want healthy, veg/vegan food for an unbelievable price. Why bother cooking for yourself?

There's normally three different curries on offer (buffet style) as well as salad, rice and Indian style dessert. Typically the curries are not hot but are nicely spiced.

Govinda's can be a little hard to find the first time you go and it's not too clear where the restaurant is at first. But don't worry there's plenty of smiling people around to help you find your way.

The food has a pleasant home cooked vibe to it.

For $5 extra you can do takeaway (they even give you a tub to fill up yourself).

Pros: Great atmosphere , Excellent value! , Healthy
