As a fan of south indian cuisine, and a frequenter of one of the major dosa chains, I thought I would give Dosa Xpress a try. And I was not disappointed. We ordered the idly and medhu vada as starters (both very good), however the...More

I have never yet been disappointed here. Service can be a little slow when busy but the food makes up for any delay.
