Had a great dinner here with a group of 6. Dosa was great. Tacos were spicy and flavorful. The chola bhaturra was a hit. Everything we ordered was nice. Priced pretty reasonable. Would come back again.

Went here with friends. Food was very spicy. Service was very limited especially when it came to describing the dishes they had on the menu. Part of order was not delivered at all. No one came and asked how we were doing. Was with friends who have eaten there frequently. I was not impressed and underwhelmed with the food quantity... More

We love South Indian food, specially dosas!! The ambience was good. The waiters were very friendly. We ordered 3 different types of dosas. The size of dosas was good. We felt the filling in the dosas was not spicy at all, and the dosas were too greasy! On a positive note, we felt the Dabeli was hot (may be too... More

Souith Indian restaurants have a unique taste to them. Capturing the essence and offering it at a downtown place with wonderful service and ambiance was something I loved about this place. The food was tastefully decorated and served to us. Being south indians, I'm picky about the spices used, and we could customize it here. Great line up and choices.... More

We were a group of friends who went for a sunday brunch. Had nice pomegranate mimosas and variety of food options. Everything was very good. Good food and service.

I was really looking forward to eating at DOSA - I love Indian food and was excited to try food from a new region. The staff were wonderful - very polite and friendly - but the food itself was a bit bland and the menu was not as vegetarian friendly was I was hoping. Won't be back anytime soon.

Lovely location and ambience on a corner with very high ceilings and comfortable seating. A great stop for cocktails and being with friends. The Dosas are traditional and creative as well. Ours were good, yet not as warm as we expected and the truffle one, had limited truffle flavor. Would return and try some of the other dishes.

My daughter and I came here for a pre-ballet meal, so at 6pm we were able to walk in and get a table. The space is open and airy and has a great ambiance. Our server was very friendly and helpful with cocktail and food selections. We decided to get a bunch of small plates including dosas. Everything was fresh... More
