At a conference on a snowy January night, some friends and wanted some Indian to take back to the hotel to drink with a nice Pinot Noir. The dosas here proved just the trick. I had a wonderful lam dosa and a great samosa; my friends each of whom have a dietary issue were able to get exactly what they... More

I went here in a group of six. You order at the counter, pay, and then wait for them to call out your order. I had a dosa with chicken and the mango chutney. It was delicious, but it was way too much food for one person. Others at my table had the chicken biryani, the spinach with paneer (cheese... More

I ordered at the counter and paid, then sat down and got table service. I got dosa, which is a huge roll of thin, crispy bread with fillings inside. It was a bit overwhelming, but the proportions are actually reasonable. The atmosphere is great and the decoration is interesting. I liked the food a lot, but because dosa is such... More

Found this place completely on accident while I was cutting through to hit another place. Walked in, place was clean, and the prices were great! I got the chicken tiki and the lamb wraps and I will tell you that they were absolutely phenomenal! I will eat here again, and I wish they would open one in Daytona Beach!!!

A great place to try Masala Dosa in a fun, non- threatening setting. For novices, Masala Dosa is a giant, but very thin Southern India crêpe (often 2 feet wide) stuffed with potatoes or what ever else you might like. This place is run by folks from Southern India and Southern Indian food is very different. They also serve some... More

It is a casual dining place with tasty food. Their Paani puri and Chole puri are the best. Masala dosas are good too. The service is great and people there are very friendly. Highly recommend this place.

I would have love to give a ratings of 4 or even 5 if the restaurant was served by the previous host (the Andhra guy; I forgot his name). Among two new hosts, one of them (taller among the two) is simply terrible and very ill mannered. He laughs at guests and makes fun of them. Simple advice - don't... More

We went here when we went to downtown! Excellent dosa selection and the sambhar was excellent! I usually need chutney but I skipped the chutney. I got Mysore masala dosa and my husband got the chicken dosa from the build your dosa. Highly recommend this place.
