We have went there for dinner. We have ordered one Veg Uttapam and Masala Dosa. As we have been living in Bangalore for past one year, i am very much familiar with the south indian dishes. Dosa i would say that was really good, it is served with sambhar, tomato chutney, coconut chutney and green chutney. The complete combo of... More

Visited this place with office friends. Varieties of Dosa are limited, but tried to prepare authentic Dosa. Chutney and Sambar is also nice. If you are dosa lover you must try once this.

We are regulars at Chennai dosa especially for their weekend buffet. Pros : Some of the south indian dishes like idli , dosa ,vada etc are good. Cons: Service needs to be improved. It is understaffed so cant blame the staff in all honesty. Apart from the buffet items, we ordered some take-away like chicken chettinadu , chicken gravy (don't... More

The food here is very tasty - vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters alike are all catered for. The food is really tasty; spicy, and different from the rest of the Indian food available in town. Service is pretty much non existent, and not much English is spoken by the waiters, but the food arrives when it is cooked, hot and... More

The first thing you notice when you visit this restaurant is that the majority of tables are occupied by Indian families… that’s got to be a good sign! More like a canteen, the food arrives when fresh and ready, and to be honest, this is some of the best food I have had for a long time! First rate service... More

Came in around 3. Ordered idlis vadas and masala dosa along with mango lassi. Disappointed that Salted lassi was not on the menu. The sambar was up to standard. The food was hot and we were served within 10 minutes. Had to ask for napkins. No water on the table. Pravin was excellent and chatted with us. Decor was lovely... More

I visited for a work Christmas meal. The restaurant is quite big and very brightly lit so despite there being a few other tables filled it felt empty and lacking atmosphere. We were there on a Tuesday and they don't light the tandoor on Tuesdays so half the menu wasn't actually available. We weren't told this initially so we'd all... More

We visited Chennai Dosa today for a quick lunch, and it was delicious. The food was prepared quickly, the staff were helpful, and the Dosas were delicious, very full of flavour. The mutton was very nicely spiced, and lovely and tender. We'll definitely be going back for lunch again soon.
