  Restaurant Govinda
by Belsaita

We went there again a few days ago (Feb 2006). It keeps being a charming place with excellent food.

The atmosphere is relaxing and invites to conversation. Ambient music is smooth and varied (ethnic rhythms, mantras, and so on). All ingredients are lacto-vegetarians; they do not use meat, eggs or fish. Mostly Hindu specialties, but you can try as well some international dishes as crepes, pizzas, spring rolls, as well as a salad's buffet.

They do not serve any kind of alcoholic beverages (for this reason the place is banned for a few of my friends, not a real problem for me)

Favorite Dish: From Monday to Friday there is a lunch menu, on Weeekends the offer an special menu from a selection of their "a la carte" dishes: first and second course (to choose from 4 options each), hindu bread (to chose from 2) and one dessert, all for 12.50 ?.

I always have eaten a la carte. Dishes are copious, so a couple of appetizers to share and a main dish was more than enough. I love their homemade lassis (specially the plain one, with some salt and pepper on top, but I always ask to have it less salty).
