Simple vegetarian food—usually curries of some kind—coupled with a happy vibe and very cheap prices make this place a winner. Based in the Hare Krishna center, Govinda’s serves buffet-style meals in a basic room of black-lacquer tables. The menu changes nightly but always includes a delicious Indian dahl soup, vegetable curry, penne pasta, lentil pie or potato au gratin, cauliflower pakoras, potato wedges, rice, poppadums, and salads. It’s BYO, doctrine-free, and very bohemian. After the meal, there’s a movie (albeit on a different floor). Movies start at 7pm, and you watch them from a prostrate position on large futon-style chairs. It’s hugely popular, so make a booking.
