If you’ve ever found yourself at the Hare Krishna Temple on a Sunday, you know that the eating is good. The Temple, known for its "Sunday love feasts" abundant with vegetarian fare, will soon make those offerings available much more often.

Construction is almost complete at Govinda’s, the forthcoming restaurant that will be attached to the temple. Govinda’s will offer a variety of fresh vegetarian Indian dishes like tofu curry with basmati rice for both lunch and dinner. The dining room will seat approximately 75 hungry patrons, who will heap lentil dal and naan on their plates buffet-style.

According to the Temple, all that is left to be completed is the parking lot. Once that is finished, the restaurant will open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and for dinner from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Govinda’s will resemble Kalachandji’s, an excellent vegetarian buffet operated by Dallas’ Hare Krishna Center. The restaurant is set to open by the end of next month.
