Govindas used to be on Elizabeth St but has moved to George St almost opposite the court building. Was looking forward to a good Indian vegetarian meal but when we arrived at the end of lunch there was not much available and what was had dried out a lot under the heat lamps. The vegetable curry was tasty but at... More

I stayed at the Ibis Brisbane recently (again), and was stoked to find that a Govindas had opened just around the corner from here. I LOVE the Gold Coast restaurant and this one is even better. It is not pure Vegan, and offers more variety that the GC store, namely the wonderful lasagne, which I ate for 3 days running... More

surprisingly big once you are inside!!! That's because it has a narrow frontage facing George St but its length gives it plenty of room for a good size indoor seating experience. On my 2nd day in Brisbane I was walking by from my hotel just around the corner and saw a crowd standing inside the entrance and ordering take-away food... More

After many years as an Elizabeth Arcade icon Govindas has moved to George St. It's a lot smaller but still offers Govinda's fabulous all you can eat feast meals so is worth tracking down.

Cheap, healthy vegan lunch Good place for a quick lunch in the city. No view and can get quite hot during summer but who cares when you have delicious, cheap, healthy lunch? I only hope they change up their menus a bit to offer a bit more variety. The buffet is about $12 pp so it really is a steal.... More

Went for breakfast the other day. Starts at 7am and would definitely recommend. Such yummy food with heaps of vegan options. My son loved it so much :) Will be back. BTW - That is the wrong address on top. It is on George St now.

Recently moved from Elizabeth street what this eatery lacks in ambience is well made up for in good healthy food at a reasonable price. The feast meal cannot be beaten. Beat the rush and get in early because the office workers have discovered this little gem!

For any 'foodies' especially vegetarian/ vegans etc do visit Govindas. Fresh , interesting cuisine with vegetables/ lentils/ nuts / curries make for an international eating experience. Fresh juices /teas add to your meal. Pleasant , informative staff for help if required. Good prices for budget conscious diners.
