Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We only spent £5 on a meal and were completely stuffed after our meal. Such great value for money and delicious, can’t recommend more.

In a beautiful city that is heaven for meat eaters it’s hard to find a good complete vegetarian meal. Head here - food made with love not too spice and delicious - very kind staff.

Govinda used to be a reasonable vegan alternative located in downtown Budapest, next door to the main building of Central European University. A lot has changed since then. Govinda is depressing. When I was there, it offered 3 (THREE) sabjis, all of them based on...potatoes (and some other veggies), the food was oily and cold. Not cheap either. This place needs to be taken over by somebody that knows how to make good food and run a reasonable restaurant. Until then -- stay away.More

Great option for vegetarians/vegans. Everything looks great. We’ve had the casserole dish and it was out of this world. The lemonade is also very tasty. The atmosphere is nice. The prices are very reasonable. Will come back for sure.

A gem in the heart of Budapest. I found this place purely by chance, walking around sightseeing. The door to Govinda's led to a downstairs restaurant brightly lit, clean and with plenty of food to try. The variety was quite amazing and tasty too. Didn't...cost an arm or a leg either. I stayed in Budapest for 3 weeks and this was the only place where I chose to eat. They also changed the food every day, so it never got boring. If you want tasty vegan food, then try Govinda's. No airs and graces just Good food.More

Visit this restaurant by chance and it was absolutely a position experience. You can choose the components of your meal from a wide varieties. Cheap prices, good quality but unfortunately when I was there I couldn't pay with card as they told me the machine...is not working (don't know if that was temporary or not) suit is better to take cash with you. If I am not mistaken there was no free Wi-Fi there.More

Great vegeterian place to visit in Hungary. They have great menu, and prices are much less than expected. If you like Indian tastes, this is the place for you.

More of a cafe/deli setup than a restaurant, this is good spot to get a filling vegetarian meal in central Budapest. I could have easily gone back for seconds after polishing off my first plate of hearty spiced vegetables, rice and puri. The ginger lemonade...was delicious as well. I overheard an Indian customer complimenting the staff, saying that she would have assumed the cook came from India as the taste of the food was so authentic to that region.More

It was the first time I have visited this vegan place, it's pretty close to the office. The people are really chilly and nice, the athmosphere is very calm. I was okay with the food, in menu there were some soup, pottage with veggieloaf and...a lemonade, although both the soup and the pottage were spacy and salty. The price of the menu is not so bad related to district where the restaurant is located.More
