I visited Dosa place after many years.Dissapointing is an understatement. The waiter was attentive so they get 1 star .The decor had not been upgraded in years faded curtains but clean. The buffet had chicken that was dry appeared to have been reheated many times and not fresh. The saag(spinach dish ) was worse than frozen dinner entrees I have... More

8 of us went to have dinner there on a Tuesday night. The place was not busy when we got there. 20 minutes later a few tables got occupied. There was one server. We had to get up to get our own water and place settings. The quality of food has gone down in the last few months. The buffet... More

Our party of 3 shared the appetizers (cheese samosa and idli, served with 4-5 delicious dips and sauces), and ordered different entrees (including a vegetable dosa [crisp rice pancake stuffed with vegetables], a sizzling tandoor shrimp, and chicken tikka masala). All were truly delicious! The staff were attentive, helpful (ensuring that the level of spice/heat was held in check), and... More

I have never considered reviewing this place, even though I've been a regular for 4 years!!! But this is so sad. Dosa place has just one review and that too negative. Poor them. For some weird reason, its had the bad luck of bad word-of-mouth publicity in my friend circle by people who have never even been there!! I asked... More

I went with a friend to the lunch buffet... It was the worst Indian food ever! Tough chicken tandoori, very skimpy amounts of chicken . Nan bread was terrible. The place is dirty. I ended up with a very sick stomach. I will never go back! Never!

For this visit, I chose the buffet. The selection was much larger than other Indian restaurants who serve a buffet. Once seated, freshly made 'dosa' arrive to your table. If you are lucky, you will get Mukunda who dotes on you well, offering excellent service.

We just enjoyed a dinner buffet here after a several years absence and were delighted at what we found. Staff was very welcoming and quite helpful in describing dishes and spices used. The dinnerware has been upgraded to stainless steel plates with a copper bottom, along with steel glasses and sauce/chutney dishes (some copper clad and some not). Great to... More
