The food was great, but the service was slower than reasonable for a Friday night. We were seated by the door and every time the door opened a cold draft came in cooling the food down. Would recommend going here but maybe at off-peak times until they sort their service issues out.

House of Dosas' speciality is, unsurprisingly, dosas. They're long tubes of pastry filled with curried meats or vegetables. With almost everything priced under $10, the food is a bargain. There are two large TVs, one of which is generally showing cricket. The food isn't particularly spectacular - but, for the price, it's perfectly adequate. There are a lot of variations... More

Very tasty food. They have a very extensive menu, most of which were things we had never had before, so we asked the nice young waiter to select a variety of dishes for us. The flavour was amazing. The accompaniments contrasted very nicely. It was very affordable - it worked out to about $25/head including some drinks. I have given... More

Went by this place on the SW corner of Kingsway and Knight St when taking a new route home. I On Thursday evening at 7:30 the place was packed. Hubby loves a good curry and was willing to give it a try on Friday night as it wasn't too expensive. Walked into a room full of wonderful fragrant aromas and... More

It was our first time at this restaurant. First of all, if you go there, bring cash. Even though they have Visa signs on the door, they also have a sign posted "cash only" and they mean it. The restaurant is old and dated and could use a scrub and paint job but the tables are clean, washrooms (a single... More
