Best buffet I have ever attended- and TOTALLY vegan. It was a dream. Not only does Govinda's offer a variety, the food is made with extremely high quality ingredients, is healthy, complex, and flavorful. I absolutely loved it and was stuffed to the brim at the end- the best way to feel after a buffet.

The restaurant provides an interesting setting and a nice display of vegan dishes for a fair buffet price. The food was fresh, but largely made up of salad bar items and dressings. There was an empty basket meant to offer homemade breads. We enjoyed a peaceful meal, but wouldn't plan on a return visit especially because the people working in the restaurant were not all all welcoming.

We were visiting family in Tucson, and they brought us here. As regulars, they were greeted warmly by name. We all felt very welcome. The buffet was delicious, vegetarian Indian cuisine. The paneer was great and the dal and curries outstanding.

I made a reservation very far in advance and when we showed up the person there said she didn't have us listed and almost seemed mad at us for showing up (yes, we were a big group but we had made a reservation!). She wanted us to pay before eating (which is fine, maybe that's how it's done there), but when we got to the tip part and I didn't move to leave a tip (we hadn't eaten yet!) she seemed personally offended and said that usually people left a tip.

The food was pretty good, healthy, self serve buffet. We did leave a tip although I'm not really sure why we had to because we served ourselves, even served our own water, and were in charge of emptying our own plates and dishes. It seemed pretty tacky to ask us for a tip.

Recommend for vegans/vegetarians. I personally probably would not return.
