To be fair, maybe I shouldn't have eaten here lol

I'm not a fan of vegetarian food, so maybe I should've gone elsewhere. People live like this? LOL

I got the Veggie Thali - 5 items for £7. So not expensive. The portions were small. I like Indian food and had to try it in London, but this isn't what I was expecting. The rice and fried bread were fine, salad was a bit sad looking. I didn't...more

I love Indian food because (1) I usually have more food options as I follow a pure vegetarian [no onion/garlic] diet and (2) I'm in England where Indian food is said to be awesomely delicious. I had heard about this place and was in the area just in time for dinner. It was a Sunday.

Govinda's is as good as it gets because:

1. You have this little cute cafe/restaurant right in the middle of the zoo area of Soho with reasonable prices

2. Great vegetarian Indian dishes

3. No one bothers you! You pick your food, pay, grab a fork and sit down to do whatever you want to do (read, stare into the space, lick your is the limit)

Will I be back? You bet!more

You'll never know.

Bottomline: if you're looking for a vegetarian option or simply...more

Very good food- the first two options on the menu- Small Thali and Large Thali are all you can eat! Yes please. When you go back and ask for a second portion of everything they might say "you are hungry". To which I said "yes". Hahahahha.

To be honest I have no idea what the dishes were called- but I loved the variety. A spicy red bean stew, a spinach potato curry option, another cauliflower...more
