I find it quite difficult to find authentic Indian food in UK, as the spices are tempered to suit local tastes. However, Dosa Express is definitely a welcome exception. The Sambar had thee right type and level of spices, the idlis were tasty and soft, the Vada was tasty and not oily and the dosa was tasty and appropriately crisp.... More

Wow. Food: What an establishment. Authentic, tasty and wonderfully spiced curries and beers all very reasonably priced. Service: all with a smile, couldn't do enough for us - special kudos to the young tanned man with an earring (and a slightly dirty shirt!!!). Can't recommend enough.

The most incredible restaurant ever and it tastes exactly like it does in India...even the tomato ketchup! This is what dining out should be like. The masala dosa, chicken lollipop and kottu chicken paratha I highly recommend!

After having written a good review for Bundobust in the city centre, I thought I should write an even better one for Dosa Express as this is clearly the best Indian in Manchester for authentic street food. This is the place I compared bundobust to- and I would rather visit here by a mile. Large dosas, fantastic flavours and friendly... More

Just had lunch here today. Nice South Indian food. No frills just good idlis and dosas. Parking isn't always easy but cost of food is very reasonable. £25 for 4 of us including a tip.10% discount for NHS staff.
