It’s Krishna by way of Lisboa at this classic dining spot, situated snugly in the middle of a residential area. The 30-year-old Govinda represents an interesting mixture of Luso-Brazilian architecture and Indian decor. The ceiling is supported by open wooden beams (in a former 19th-century life, the house was a grease-processing factory), while sumptuous sub-continent furniture occupies the various rooms. The couvert is a great start for the meal; eight different sauces with the house bread. You can’t miss the classic Indian dishes – go for the lamb or chicken curries or one of the tandoori specials for best results.
