Govinda's is an Indian vegetarian restaurant serving many vegan dishes as well. It was a new restaurant for me. It was somewhat surprising since I've lived in Houston for over 30 years and had never heard of the place until a friend mentioned it to me! We decided to meet up there for lunch and it was well worth it. The food is buffet style, and all the choices were done well. Somosas, a favorite vegetarian dish for many people, can be special ordered and they'll cook it up right then. They have a great selection of vegan and vegetarian desserts, including Bacalavas. Prices are reasonable, the restaurant is spacious, has a unique decor, and is well lit, and the wait staff are personable and efficient. The building and surroundings have a distinct Indian architectural style and are well maintained, adding to the ambiance. I'm looking forward to my next visit there.
I love vegetarian food. I am not vegetarian or vegan but I enjoy eating it when I can. I can’t believe I didn’t know about this place. I found it one day while I was having a meat free day. It’s so fresh, delicious and only $12 buffet for lunch! How can you beat that?!
This is pretty much the only place I eat outside of the house anymore. Great atmosphere, easy to make healthy choices. Great vegan food that's friendly for stubborn omnivores too. Great staff and the money goes to the temple which turns around and helps the community. 100% my favorite restaurant in Texas.
Fresh, delicious vegetarian Indian buffet, including some vegan dishes. There were some dishes that I wouldn't classify as Indian food, such as BBQ tofu, but it was tasty. Chai and drinks are extra. There were two dessert options..The location is really interesting. Place is spacious and welcoming. Will definitely come back during the day and check out the beautiful temple grounds!
It was THE BEST restaurant I’ve ever been to. the food was fresh and uncontaminated (as most restaurants have cross contamination). Flavor was phenomenal! Service was awesome, and the restaurant is very clean!!! I’d recommend this place 10/10 to anyone who’s interested in eating rich, flavorful food.
I read a few reviews of this being hit or miss. Most of the masses seem to like it.
On the day we went I found the food to not taste freshly made. My lunch companion thought it was good although not quite as fresh as she'd hoped.
Staff was very friendly and polite. The establishment was immaculate. The attached temple made for a unique experience.
Eventually we will give it another shot, but this time we won't go out of our way to get there.
The food is fresh and place is very clean! We go every week or 2. Everything on the buffet is delicious. Price is great and people are friendly. This is a pure vegetarian restaurant. People with diet restrictions and kids are most welcome here. Thank you again!
Good food and people. Vegan options on Wednesday’s and Sunday’s. Not gonna lie first time I tried it I wasn’t very impressed but the second time I went everything was good. I try to stop In at least once a week nowadays. They usually swap up the menu so there’s always something new to try out.
I just love this place so much. So many nice people here. The food is awesome! Even if you’re not vegan, I would suggest giving it a try. Great energy from this place and I just feel so good after eating here!
