Govindas Pure Vegetarian Burleigh Heads Reviews
Delicious Vegetarian food @ Govindas Pure Vegetarian Nov 13, 2010
Since I came to Australia, I've been becoming a vegetarian, but not for a special reason, just because I want to try a new life style. So far, I've been cooking or asking for vegetarian dishes where I go to eat. So, the idea of going to a place just about vegetarian and krishna food sounds more than appealing.
First of all I have to say that there's just 1 original Govinda in Gold Coast. This name is popular and somebody else used this in Surfers Paradise. This place is located in the chilled out Burleigh Heads.
It's a small restaurant in a shopping center. This place encourages the communal spirit. Even the tables are designed to share. There's no menu, but food options. Daily they prepare 4 salads and 6 hot dishes, plus rice and desserts.
The way this works is the following: like in a buffet you see all the dishes available. You just have to pick the dish combination and size to order. There are also some juices and the water is free. Then just pay for your order, take it and find a seat.
My 1st time there I was with 2 friends and we ordered the Supreme combination which included 4 dishes, rice, pakoras, lassi & halawa (dessert). It was a lot of food, more than enough for the 3 of us. All the portions are large, plus it's not expensive. And what about the taste of the dishes? So good!!! They are not hot or used many spice, but taste so good. Hard to believe that the food without meat can taste so good, you have to try it.
The atmosphere is great here too, very peaceful. Staff is helpful and very friendly too.
Definitely this is the perfect place to grab a bite in the laid back Burleigh Heads. Delicious and healthy food in a very nice and quiet atmosphere. You don't need to be a vegetarian to love this place!
