I have eaten at many different Govinda's restaurants and festival dining places, but vegan was a new twist to me, mango lassi without yoghurt, and halva without ghee. The halva was a bit more crumbly than usual, but the flavours and textures were close to standard vegetarian Hare Krishna food. I was there on a Saturday evening when the place... More

This Hare Krishna restaurant was disappointing. The choice of vegetarian food was limited served buffet style with all you can eat. The Vege Curry was bland bereft of any spices and that along with the tasteless vegetable penne pasta, potato bake and pakoras with two types of rice and a crumbly semolina served with custard left me feeling wanting. On... More

If you want to eat tasty, vegetarian, healthy and cheap all together, do not hesitate on going here! Many vegetarian options, and you can choose to eat all you want for a very low price. Totally recommended! It is not a place to go for a special occasion though.

Went with friends who are vegan, vegetarian and meat eaters. All you can eat including sweets. Definitely try the kofta balls with tomato chutney- they are the best!!!!!!

I know Govindas food from the festivals and I was so looking forward to come to this one in Surface Paradise. No surprises, food was excellent, nice vibe and service. A lot of good options. It is definitely different to eat food prepared from the heart. If you are around, this is the place to go !

It's a nice and simple restaurant but with very good veggie and Indian food. For 14,00 AUD it's all you can eat. It's in the center of surfers paradise.

I was walking around the surfers paradise area when I came across this place. Ate here a couple of times, on the buffet and it was worth it. very few places serve all you can eat buffet in this part, but this one lived up the expectations.

Admittedly, it was a Groupon voucher that took me there, but no regrets. I was made welcome and pointed towards drinks cabinet (choice of 3 healthy juices included in price)the all you can eat smorgasbord of choices and given a large plate to fill as many times as I could manage...one return trip was plenty. Not so fussed about the... More
