Govinda's is a great place to have vegan meals. We went to Govinda's with my friend to have a lunch. In a moment we got there we felt very welcomed. The waitress spoke English and wanted also to learn our language. She was very helpful and was having fun with us. The lunch included a soup, a drink (jamaican flower... More

This is a fantastic restaurant with amazing food.....BUT....Sorry to be honest and say this, the people who serve behind the counter need to learn the definition of "SERVICE WITH A SMILE". I was shocked at how unfriendly, frosty and unpleasant the staff members are which is surprising considering that they are all supposed to be devotees and surely should be... More

Unlike some vegetarian restaurants, it offers food from many countries, and it's all tasty plus the service is friendly. They also catered for a party for me, excellent.

Absolutely fabulous vegetarian cafe in Central London. It is unbelievably cheap Dishes include authentic south India Thali and curries. Depending on what time of day you visit you can eat as much as you want for a set price. Go late and price is cheaper and you can eat more... This place is not posh and has a laid back... More

I've been visiting this restaurant for thirty years and it remains a firm favourite of mine. Great value for money and good food. I also like that you can take as long as you need and as a lone woman I never feel uncomfortable here. I usually have one of the Thalis but the cakes are amazing if you have... More

Love the food... love the ambience... love everything about the place. Pure vegetarian (vegan options too). Try out the Paneer Tikka roll. The pizzas are great too. The thali options are really good to. The kids love the Mango / Strawberry milkshakes. If you're around the area definitely try it out.

Wholesome Natural Vegetarian Food. (Prasdm) Our aim is to provide fresh, nutritious meals at affordable prices. We serve a wide variety of pure vegetarian cuisine, which is freshly cooked on the premises throughout the day. All of our products are meat, fish and egg free with many dishes suitable for vegans too. We do not use onions, garlic or mushrooms. Try the thali (it literally means plate) which consists of 2 sabjis (vegetable dishes), rice, chapattis, and a side salad. More conventional dishes include pizza, lasagna, veggie burgers, egg-free quiche or one of our delicious spinach rolls, all of which can be served with salad. There are over ten different types of fresh salads available daily where you can try creations like mango, celery and walnut salad caprese, or fried and marinated courgette and eggplant. Stapes include simple salads like beetroot, potato and fresh mixed greens. If available. While you are here, try the tahini dressing, it's delicious! We have a selection of English treats such as home-made ice cream, cheesecakes and gateaux or try traditional Indian items such as sweet rice, laddhu (gram flour sweets) and barfis (condensed milk balls). Karma Free Diet Our restaurant also has an additional unique feature: all our preparations are first offered to Lord Krishna before being served and are thus called prasadam which means the Mercy of God. Dine in Govinda's for a truly blessed and karma-free experience! Take a piece of mercy with you All of our menu items are available as take-away, so even if you are in a rush or have just popped out from the office to grab a bite, you can experience the mercy of Lord Krishna! Party Time? If you are having a celebration and want to treat your guests to the Govinda's experience we can cater for any size of function. Celebrate someone special with a sumptuous egg-free cake. We have various sizes for any occasion. Contact us and we can make happen. Why not try Govinda's recipes at home? We have a large selection of vegetarian and vegan cookbooks to help you delight your friends and family with healthy, karma-free cooking. Pop in when you are next in the area or after visiting the temple next door. We look forward to serving you soon.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
