Govindas is a vegetarian Indian restaurant located near the Al Jazeera grocery store in the Juffair area, a short walk from our hotel.  We had seen it the other day on the way to the Patong Thai restaurant, and later it was recommended by another co-worker, so we decided to hit it last night.

Of all vegetarian cuisines in the world, Indian is by far my favorite, and this place continued to affirm that opinion.  There were so many good looking dishes, we kind of went overboard, so you could probably eat here for less than 5 BHD per person if you got what you can actually eat in one sitting.  The leftovers were much appreciated the next morning for breakfast.

I really don't know how to describe how good the food was, if you haven't tasted these flavors before I don't know how to describe them.  I think I can safely say nothing in Yokosuka comes close though.  The paneer tikka (roasted cheese cubes with tikka spices) was amazing...and so was everything else.  I'll just leave it at that.
