This visit we just had soup and a little of the buffet. They weighed my plate. So cost effective. Two of us for lunch on $8! Loved the heater in the bathroom!

My family and I eat at Govinda's almost every time we pass Eugene. In fact, I schedule out trip so that we can stop there for lunch or dinner. I feel so good after eating their food even after overeating. Fresh salad, hearty soups, rice,...More

I enjoy the variety of food here. It isn't really Indian so much as Hindu influenced. Enchiladas were served alongside dal, for instance. For dessert, the halvah with cardamom was a stand out, although there were many choices. The atmosphere is relaxed, unassuming and very...More

Had been traveling abroad and missed good salad, vegetarian fare. Found this place and had wonderful lunch/dinner (closes fairly early in evening) buffet style. I would be a regular if I lived here.

I tried everything and liked most. Some better than others, of course. Split pea dal and vege soups both superior. Didn't much like the gluten free breads but didn't expect to. Halvah desert scoops were my favorite.

Indian food I have never enjoyed all that much, and never think vegetarian is going to be as good, so I didn't have high hopes for this place. All the buffet items were really fresh, good salad stuff, dressing is out of this world. Not...More
