Located on-site of the Hare Krishna Temple of Understanding, Govinda's is a purely vegetarian restaurant that caters to both devotees and outsiders. No garlic or onion are used in food preparation, which does not prevent the restaurant from having dedicated return customers.


Indian influence is strong on the local dining scene (Durban's favourite dish is the "bunny chow" – a hollow bread loaf filled with spicy curry), with multiple Indian restaurants spread out across Durban, peaking in concentration in the Indian quarter. Fine dining establishments dot North Durban, while fabled South African steaks are to be searched for in Florida Road (Durban's thoroughfare and popular entertainment hub) and beyond.
