Festive week has begun and so are the dinners and get together with family and friends. I invited my relatives over to Govinda’s at Karama for a nice vegetarian Diwali pre dinner.
This time I invited my brother, sister and fortunately my parents were in town too. Govinda was a perfect place to re-unite. The interiors of the restaurant features the beautiful paintings of Lord Radha and Krishna on the wall and you will hear the chanting of Radha Krishna Bhajan’s in the background. I love the style of their menu with headers like Brijvasi ki Pasand, Nandgoan ki Mandi se, Vrindavan ki Haryali. It reminds me of my childhood days spent at Mathura and Virndavan in India !!!
Now let me tell you all about the food that we had and my recommendation. You cannot miss the Sitafal Coconut Breezer and Govinda’s Paradise.Very refreshing. As you arrive, they serve the yummy Pani Puri shots. & I so love their presentation. The soups at Govinda’s are quite nice especially the Coriander Lemon soup and Chinese soups.
For starters Tandoori Platter, Paneer Ajwain Tikka & Govinda Tandoori Patter is good as we get to try Broccoli, Baby Corn, Cauliflowers and baby potatoes.
For main course, I would suggest Vegetable Kolphapuri, Punjabi Chole, Dal Makhani, Dal Panchratna along with a bread basket if you are with family. The dinner is incomplete without the amazing sweets: Gulab Jamun & Rabdi are yummy but my personal fvaourite is Kesar Rasmalai.
Govinda can surprise you with its elaborate menu and one can enjoy different cuisines from Chinese to Indian with the ever dependable Thali.
On an average a dish ranges in between AED 30 to 35.
