Connected with the ISKCON movement, this is the chained restaurant that serves authentic Jain food. Definitely worth a visit if you want to have some delicious vegetarian food.

We were under the impression that this is a branch of the iconic Govindas at Juhu in Mumbai, but that was not the case. However, liked the menu, the food, the service and the quality.
