My Mum and I were going to see a matinee show this weekend so we decided to go for lunch beforehand. I’ve walked past Govinda’s so many times but never been in so I thought I’d suggest it to Mum, who gladly agreed.
The restaurant is part of the Krishna temple and is a cafeteria style where you queue up choose your food and then pay at the till.
We both went for the Unlimited Thali which came with two curries, rice, lentil soup, salad and I added a Punjabi samosa on the side.
This meal was an absolute delight. I especially liked the kidney bean curry and Mum was a big fan of the lentil soup. Nothing was overly spicy which was good for a spice wimp like me! This huge plate was £9.95 with £1 for the samosa, they also do a smaller plate for £6.95. I think this was great value and had a lovely casual vibe. I would definitely recommend if you are in the Soho area.
After our lunch we still had a bit of time so we went to Tap Coffee on Wardour Street, part of a small chain of coffee shops with a stripped back aesthetic. We both had an oat milk latte and Mum went for a vegan rose and pistachio cake which tasted lovely!
As we were on Wardour Street we had to pay a visit to Yorica! I went for vanilla and matcha frozen yogurt with raspberry sauce which was lush!
