Masala Dosa has fantastic food. I really like their Thali - the combination and selection of flavors is beautiful.

I'm a big fan of this place, not just churning out chicken kormas and the usual fare, but focusing on thalis with great effect. Multi course meals with small portions that add up to a large varied meal, with various flavours. Typical mean might have...More

This iconic Indian Eatery has become our favourite in central Cape Town for two reasons: 1. The food. A variety of authentic dishes prepared freshly and served with flair. Personal favourite - the chicken dosa. 2. The owner and staff. Personal and caring. It is...More

You may like the food or not, it's kind of unusual and not the everyday kind of Indian food. For me personally, it was not my type of food. More importantly however, the prices were far too high for a snack kind of "fast" food...More

Our prices are absolutely in line with other restaurants serving the same thing, which is not surprising, given the preparation required. Far from being a fast food, the flour has to be made and left to ferment overnight, and the fillings are not cheap and...More

Was surprised to find a place serving dosas in Cape Town. We found them to be very yummy. Service was really good and prices reasonable. Thank you.

What can we say except thank you - and that you know where to come for dosas next time you feel the need?

Thank you so much! We don't think the craving for Indian food is strange at all, but we certainly hope you give in to it again when you're next in town.

A quaint little restaurant offering a fairly limited menu but providing good, almost home made tasting, food at affordable prices. The highlight is the personalized service. Serves both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food options. Also has a mini bar and offers alcoholic beverages as well.

Thank you! The best part is that you think the food tastes home-made. We hope you'll drop by again soon.
