Govinda’s Restaurant in Tucson Welcomes Ten Buddhist Monks
By Thomas Haribol, ISKCON News Managing Editor   |  May 13, 2023

On May 9th, a group of nine Buddhist monks from Vietnam visited Govinda’s Restaurant in Tucson for lunch. While on a tour of North America, these traditional vegetarian monks found the temple’s restaurant via Google, which rated it the #1 Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant in the city.  This traveling band was familiar with Govinda’s restaurants through their worldwide travels.  They appreciated the wonderful prasada, asked thoughtful questions about the philosophy of Krishna Consciousness, and even left with several of Srila Prabhupada’s books.

Govinda’s in Tucson has been serving gourmet vegetarian cuisine since 1992, and is part of the welcoming ISKCON Tucson temple community.  It’s often called an oasis in the desert with its inviting indoor/outdoor seating, exotic birds, koi pond, waterfalls, and fountains.
