Where else in Toronto can you get a real meal for $10? By no means is this a fancy restaurant; in fact it's actually some kind of religious charity organization. The food was tasty and fresh. Service quite alright. Your plate is filled with your...More

I visited this restaurants a couple of years ago, it was not bad at that time. At today's visit, the food contained almost no spices at all, just very bland vegetables that had been kept warm for a long time-think school canteen. I hope this...More

Govinda's is not your conventional, traditional Indian buffet restaurant. I will not even call it a restaurant. It is like a canteen, a pleasant, delightful make shift cafeteria that is elegantly set up in the assembly hall of a church/temple building. The food is prepared...More

Govinda's does not disappoint. Great vegetarian platter for lunch including soup and salad to start, a choice of 2 desserts at the end, savory pakoras and a great heaping plate of hot food. This place does not advertise itself as a buffet, so don't get...More

The best piece of advice is to not go in with high expectations of a spectacular vegetarian buffet. Saying that, however, I absolutely love Govinda's! Everyone that works there is warm and welcoming, all of the food is made from scratch with love, and if...More

Govinda's is an extension of Hare Krishna temple. Most of these temples around the world have a restaurant/canteen open to general public. You don't need to be a devotee or visit the temple to eat at Govinda's. One thing to keep in mind is that...More

This vegetarian restaurant is in a Hare Krishna Church, formerly a Christian Church which creates an interesting atmosphere. The service is excellent, but the food, completely vegetarian, is average or below average. The problem is that it sits in trays waiting to be ordered. Also,...More

Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and
