Govinda Italian Restaurant Bangkok Reviews
Vegetarian Italian Fine Dining Sep 26, 2011
Located on Soi 22 Sukhumvit, in the first alley way to the right of the Soi when coming from Sukhumvit. Inside the alley way it is to the left at the back.... you may need to ask someone.
Owned and operated by two Italians, Marta and Stefano - and they even help cook the food, so you know immediately it is going to be 'proper' Italian food!
Govinda has a whole range of Italian foods, from pizzas and mozarella salads to the finest soy meats (stuffed chicken breast and various sausages) or soy seafood - but with a twist: it's all vegetarian, and still very delicious! Desserts are very well worth trying too - crepes, panacotta, ice creams, and the best of all in my opinion - the chocolate mousse.
For vegans, Govinda offers soy cheeses and all dishes are egg-free. They also offers gluten-free pasta, for people who are sensitive or allergic to gluten products. Govinda also imports many of their ingredients from Italy, especially the porcini, artichokes, cheeses, radicchio, tomatoes, and wines. They supplement the imported items with organic vegetables grown here in Thailand.
A wide selection of wines is also available from Italy, Australia, Chile, if you wish to complement your meal.
The savoury dishes, aromatic atmosphere, pleasant music and very affordable prices is why I frequent this restaurant at least once a week... sometimes more.
With both inside and outside dining areas, and a second level also, it can hold up to 50 people. You may need to book on weekends as it can get very busy, and if you sit outside, remember to bring your insect spray! They are closed on Tuesdays, which seems to be when I crave Italian food the most!
Staff are very attentive, almost too much so, as sometimes I feel as though I am being watched all the time. And I hate being watched when I'm trying to down a good pizza. They speak pretty good English, and also know how to pronounce the names of foods in Italian.
Govinda is a vegetarian’s dream…. What more could you ask for?
