nice peaceful concept - Edit

Considering that this place is in the Hare Krishna temple it should be a vegan kitchen as opposed to vegetarian. Dairy is an extremely cruel industry responsible for unbearable suffering torture and pain. The food is way too salty and everything is quite oily. Sure the cooks have traditional methods and customs but I believe that we as humans can do better than what we have always done. I would recommend this place if you are not terribly health conscious because it is tasty and it is a peaceful atmosphere. But if you care about the high salt and oil content of the food you might as well skip this place. This place would be a winner if they would cut the dairy, oil and salt. If you like consuming those things then you'll like this place but I am sharing my personal opinion so that you can be informed before choosing to go to Govinda's.

Pros: peaceful place, inexpensive dining, nice flavours and scents

Cons: food is way too salty and oily, food can be made better and healthier then this pl

More than just a meal - Edit

Govinda's dinning room is stunning and very welcoming. The diners are always diverse. The food is fresh, tasty yet not laden with grease and is not over spiced. The attendants are very friendly and attentive. It is welcoming to families, singles or couples. On my top 10 list of best veg food in Toronto.

Pros: great quality , inexpensive

Cons: washroom is down stairs

Upscale Environment, Nominal Prices - Edit

Great Place. High ceilings, arches, beautiful building. The best is that they have a nice vegetarian buffet for both lunch and dinner and costs about $10 all-inclusive. Upscale Yorkville area at an inexpensive cost. You must go. I go every week.

Pros: Inexpensive, Great Food, Atmosphere

Taste the consciousness in the food - Edit

Food is more than just the material ingredients that go into it. So an angry chef can make people angry. This restaurant totally gets it. Lovingly prepared food, not too spicy, not too heavy, just right. Not too many people yet, but quite a variety and eat-all-you-can for a low price. Totally friendly and easy-going place, housed in a heritage building too. Very interesting.

Pros: clean, taste, price
