This really is a hidden gem of a restaurant. Based just outside of Perth in the suburb of Northbridge, Govinda's offers fantastic vegetarian cuisine for incredibly reasonable prices.
Famed for their $4 vegetarian take out curry between 4om and 7pm every day, these guys ooze friendliness and pride in everything that they do. You automatically feel relaxed when you visit Govinda's, the staff are very friendly, chatty and relaxed. Plus the food is awesome and the service is impeccable.
You can enjoy a dine-in lunch from Monday to Friday between 11.30am and 2.30pm, or you can opt for a dine-in or takeaway dinner between 4pm and 7pm.
For your $4, you get a tray filled with two or three different types of vegetarian curry, rice and a dessert with custard. Not only is it incredibly filling, but also incredibly good for you. Although this venue was forced to close down a few years ago, it's safe to say that it's here to stay due to its ongoing popularity throughout Perth.
Ideal for backpackers, vegetarians and students for an affordable and fulfilling meal.
