We visit this Facility often. The food is simple and delicious. It has fresh ingredients and a good choice for vegetarian folks. They also have a nice temple on the location. I especially like the all attractive deities of Sri Sri Rukmini Dwarakadhish. The temple hall is decorated with very nice colorful pictures of Hindu Gods. The ambience of the... More

The food here was spectacular, the price was inexpensive and the vibe was the best part. Do yourself a favor and have lunch here. Parking can be tricky, but it's worth it

We decided to try Govinda's in our home town after having good food at the Govinda's in Sydney on a recent trip. I don't think we will return and would not recommend the food. It was not very flavorful and just not that good. The price is great ($8) for the buffet, all you can eat, but we didn't even... More

Great Devine experience. Satvik food and spiritual atmosphere. Close to LAX Airport. Great Stop. Must visit. I wonder why Steve Jobs mentioned about the eating a full meal by selling can at ISKCON place in his Stanford Speech ! People Stay Hungry when you plan to visit Govinda....

Whether you are vegetarian or not, you wont be disappointed by taking time out to visit Govindas. If you travel by metro (Culver Citystop, Expo line), it is then a few blocks walking or the bus stops nearby. If driving, it is an easy place to find with street parking out front or close by. Its situated on the corner... More

Actually, I think I'm being biased because I've been to the original ISKCON temple in Mumbai (Which is GORGEOUS by the way!), and the food choices are too many to name here. The Govinda's here serves ok food. not too many options. But that also might be because I'm Indian, so I expect more from restaurants serving Indian food. Overall,... More

Govinda's is a solid vegetarian buffet when you are looking to get a fill of salad with dressing, rotating and continually prepared hot food, fresh dessert and even add on a vegan cupcake or a samosa to your buffet delight. Open for breakfast and lunch and suitable for families or on a solo run. I've enjoyed every meal I've had... More
