Opened by locals Avinash Abbineni and Koushik Koganti, South Indian restaurant Godavari Austin began serving the North Austin area in September.

Godavari Austin offers a wide range of South Indian and Chinese dishes for both vegetarians and meat eaters.

A few of the best-selling dishes include:
  • Mamsam Roast Biryani: baby goat roast with basmati rice, dum pukht and marinated with fresh herbs, spices and housemade biryani masala
  • Gobi Manchurian: deep-fried, spicy cauliflower fritters sauteed with scratch-made Manchurian sauce
  • Mysore Delight Dosa: a fermented crepe made from lentils and rice, coated with housemade paste and potato masala
Indian drinks are another specialty at Godavari Austin, including curated cocktails as well as flavored yogurt and milk drinks, Indian colas, and South Indian-style coffees and chai teas.

A buffet is offered during lunchtime hours, while a la carte servings are offered in the evenings.
