This is a strange place that's part long and narrow white-tiled retro diner (where you place your orders) and part low-lit, spartan dining room (off to the side). It's kind of confusing. Is there waiter service at some point? I don't know.
There's a line cook and a guy manning the cash register. It took me a while to place my order with the guy at the register, because he seemed distracted by something and didn't want to take my order right away.
I got the seitan hoagie (~$9), but they didn't offer Daiya vegan cheese, so I skipped the cheese all together (they use some old school soy cheese which didn't engender any faith in me). The hoagie was decent, but nothing to rave about; the best part, in my opinion, was the wholewheat roll it came on. Other than that, it was just strips of seitan, bell peppers, onions and mushrooms in a piece of bread.
I also had a slice of chocolate cake ($5) which was atrocious. It looked good in the cooler case, but in actuality it was heavy, stale and had a weird aftertaste. What a waste of money; I took two bites and threw the rest out. This didn't seem like the type of place where complaining about the food would get you a refund.
Be warned that long lines quickly form at the counter. A group of five came in right after me and it took easily 20 minutes for all of them to get their orders in; to make matters worse, there's no room to linger, so everyone gets cramped by the counter and a line starts to form. This is not a sign that Govinda's is any good and worth waiting for. It's just a sign that they don't have enough space.
In summary, Govinda's did not impress me. If you're looking for a vegan cheesesteak, I recommend going to Blackbird Pizza which does a decent one with Daiya. For desserts, I'd go to Grindcore House or to Sweet Freedom Bakery.
