+ Very affordable Indian vegetarian restaurant in central London

+ Buffet option also available

Govinda's is a very affordable vegetarian restaurant in Soho, just off Oxford Street. The building belongs to some kind of religious organisation, and sometimes you see people in ethnic costume playing music and stuff outside. But do not worry. The restaurant is safe. They won't try to sell...more

I came across this place while trying to find an alternative place to grab something to eat around Oxford Street. I absolutely loved their vegetarian dishes and will definitely come back here every week before my Spanish class. The small thali I went for was really filling and the curry probably the best I've ever had (and I've tried quite a few). Hearty, home-cooked food. Nothing pretencious...more

I have definitely found my veggie spot in London! So cheap (for London), great and simple food and setup make me happy. I got the filling spinach roll, burger, small salad (filled with crunchy sprouts, minced veggies and a light vinaigrette) and a DELICIOUS carob ball studied with carob chips for dessert. I even had food leftover, all for £8.25!!! There are delicious- looking lassis in a side...more

There's nothing special in still place but I love going there!

The banana sauce that they have is really good, a combination of chili and sweet. It's great for vegetarians too since this little place is Hare...more

Govinda has REOPENED as of late March 2014 - after a temporary closing in February.

So if Yelp tells you the restaurant has closed - Yelp is WRONG.

Here is the original review I wrote in January of 2014:


London is not known for cheap food - although it exists.

Some of the cheap food is of the stomach pump variety.

Also - a lot of Indian food...more
