Was in town visiting family and we all love Indian food so they made a reservation here. It is not traditional Indian food and I was curious to try. We ordered a dosa but somehow what we got was not meat or veggies wrapped in a shell like we were expecting. I got the lamb shank which was a little... More

This may have been one of the best meals of my life. The atmosphere is exciting, and sultry. The lighting is perfect, and the service is outstanding. We ate family style - We tried the Chennai chicken as an app, and this was a show stopper for me, I think I'd have to say my favorite part of the meal.... More

Indian restaurants outside India typically default to curry and bread or in other words just being north indian restaurants. So, when you find a real south indian restaurant, you have to give it a try. And when you find one that is a class apart, you remember that meal for a long time. South India is half the country and... More

After some plans went awry we were left scrambling for a dinner spot in SF on New Year's Eve... not a good thing! But, Dosa came to the rescue with a delicious four-course prix fixe ($95 pp) meal, convivial waitstaff, Bollywood-style dancers in the aisles, and an all-around fun and festive evening. We also sprang for the $60 wine pairing... More

We tried out this place when we visited SF last July, looking for really good Indian food. It came highly recommended and, as it turned out, it was worth the try. The food we ordered was the basic Indian dishes - tandooris, curries - and they were all very good. The place was packed and it was good that we... More

Great location for a small group dinner. Wide menu options and reasonable wine list make for a great dinner for four. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Food was great! Highly recommended.

Believe me, you won't get the same taste of Vada Pav and Fried Idli even in India. I was surprised to have Indian food, outside India, which is better than India lol. Cauliflower rice or lemon rice wasnt great, so dont bother about it. Apart from the Vada Pav and Fried Idli, I strongly recommend you to have lamb chops,... More

Dosa has wonderful food, flavorful, creative and lots of pizzazz. The front desk however seemed lost in efforts to find our reservations, but oh my the food was sure good.

The place is nice and quiet enough, so it's not hard to hear your friends and have a conversation. The food was boring. Felt like all the dishes tasted more or less the same. We took two of their tasting menu, which should give a variety of thing to try. But it was just plain boring. Service was great though,... More
