I have only been here for the lunch buffet and it has been wonderful every time. I do not know a lot about Indian food so the buffet option is a great way to try a number of items without having to commit to a single entree. The food on the buffet is always fresh and there are a good... More

We ordered samosas, vegetable curry, lamb curry, basmati rice and naan. All were great and authentic - so be careful of ordering 'spicy' or even 'medium spicy' dishes. The dining room is clean and orderly. Service is very attentive.

A few years ago we walked out of Dosa Grill without ordering because they kept us waiting way too long. We tried the restaurant again a couple of years later, and the service was better. The food was good, so we started going back. However, last week (late March 2017) we were kept waiting way too long. The attitude of... More

This place has consistently good Indian food, and many things not found at other restaurants. The service is always good and they also have a lunch buffet. One of our favorite Indian restaurants in town!

My husband and I frequently visit Dosa Grill. My husband absolutely loves their food. Keep in mind, it is pretty heavy due to its preparation but tasty indeed!

I shop at the Indian food market in the same plaza and have always wanted to eat at the Dosa Grill next-door. Finally one night I was in Syracuse with a friend and we agreed to end our day of shopping with a stop at the Dosa Grill at about 9 pm. We had wonderful, friendly service and a clean,... More

My favorite place in the whole city for greatIndian food. The lunch buffet always has a new surprise on it. They also aren't afraid to let it rip on spicy entrées. The wait staff is always attentive and helpful. If your looking for authentic Indian Dosa this is your place.

We went here on new year's eve and filled up on appetizers, which were nothing to write home about but my husband and I were starving. My husband had a chicken curry and i had lamb curry. The meat was really disappointing and the curry flavors were lacking. We ended up having some curry leftover, and they offered us a... More

Dosa Grill is a nicely decorated room, with friendly staff and plenty of menu choices. We ordered a la carte, as the buffet was not on at the hour we dined. The lentil soup had good spices but was watery, with not a single whole lentil. Our waiter noticed I barely touched it, and politely removed it from the table... More
