This is a really great Indian restaurant! The food is delicious and the staff are friendly and helpful! Mr Suresh was particularly welcoming! I don't normally have dessert when I eat Indian food but I was really glad I did here! The gulab jamun were delicious!

Mediocre food! Dirty wine glasses, poor service and rude and condescending when as an English speaker I inquired about menu items. Very disappointed overall! Would not recommend!!!

Shocked at previous reviews as had a nice meal here on Saturday and the staff were lovely especially the owner. Nice choice on the menu - we had the whole fish tikka which takes longer than other dishes to prepare. Starters were nice crispy onion rings and pakoras. The dips could have been better and we did have to ask... More

This is the first negative review I've ever left on trip advisor, but thought it was my duty as a citizen of the world to inform everyone else about just how abhorrent a dining experience Govinda provided. A 1 star review is too kind for this "restaurant." I've never had such a woeful experience in any eating establishment as I... More

The food was not fresh and semi-cooked. We chose this restaurant because it is located very close to the old port. There are many other restaurants in it's vicinity,so you will have many other altenates. After a day long walking in Marseille, we wanted to eat the Indian cuisine, but later we repented our choice of this restaurant.

This restaurant is surrounded by lots of tourist traps, and this could be one as well. The food is not too bad, but the drinks are way too expensive. The food is toned down for the French palet and not very special. The styling is nice, but this does not add anything if the food is not up to that... More

Govinda is located in a really good spot surrounded by many other restaurants, and as food lovers we decided to give it a try as we like to compare indian cuisines from all parts of the world.

Went for the set menu at lunch today should have realised not good when half of what we wanted was not available. Fish fillet had bones in it, and we ordered chicken tikka masala which was disgusting with way to much salt to make it palatable. Tandoori chicken was dry and old. We left before the dessert so we weren't... More
