Today is hopefully the last day I will be forced to eat outside my house as the painters finally put the last coat on the drawing room. Our drawing room forms the core of the house and since all the rooms lead off it, it made sense to do it last. But it also took the longest since it was in the worst shape. But I'm not really grumbling because these past few weeks have given me an opportunity to eat outside as it was impossible to eat at home. The painters did come at around 10 am by which time all of the cooking was over, but apart from the food, we also needed space to eat it in! And I wasn't one for eating standing in the kitchen. But since it was hot and sticky, I thought of going vegetarian.
Govinda is totally avoidable. The restaurant was clean but the waiters distinctly surly. The food was cold and unappetising and what was worse was that there were no seconds – something unheard of in thali style eating whose USP is unlimited food that is generously heaped on to your plate.
Will I go there?
All in all it was a terribly disappointing experience and definitely avoidable .
