Description: Wholesome Natural Vegetarian Food. (Prasadam) 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, bread, 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.

We love visiting Govinda's for quick, unfussy, delicious vegetarian food. We had the unlimited thali last night, which had great flavours and you could go back for free top-ups.

All for a great price. If you're looking for a wallet-friendly, quick and delicious vegetarian spot in Central London, do visit. You may have to wait a bit for a table, but it's worth it.

Incredible value restaurant in the centre of London. If you don't mind sharing a table if busy, and you like home style veggie and vegan cooking then go! Great value thali platters.

I absolutely love this little gem and will take any opportunity to dine in here. The quality is always fresh and everything tastes like home cooking! If I'm ever missing my mum's cooking, then this is the next best thing!

Recently had a friend staying with us from India and took him here as he was homesick and this place even got his approval!

On my recent trip to London I went here on two occasions for lunch. It's a buffet style restaurant and you can choose what you really want to eat as well as they have three different levels of set menus according to how hungry and varieties of items one may want. The most outstanding feature of the restaurant is the quality of the food. All items from the savory to sweets are made fresh on the day. value for money is also worth noting.
