ISKCON Govinda’s restaurants worldwide offers people the opportunity to accept Krsna-prasädam– food that is spiritually pure because it has first been offered to Lord Krsna, and a viable alternative to give up the cruelty of meat-eating. The appellation “Govinda’s” is one of the well known aliases of Krsna meaning “He who gives pleasure to the senses”.
Your visit to ISKCON Punjabi Bagh would be incomplete without a stopover at the Govinda’s Snackbar. The 28X14 sq.feet humble snack bar offers an assortment of sweets, savouries, ice creams, desserts, beverages, cakes, health drinks, juices, breads and other milk products: All you can Offer & Eat!
