Dosa is hard to find in England and suffering from Dosa withdrawal symtom since leaving Kerala years ago , I visited this restaurant with trepidation that my memories would be subjugated to a non authentic Dosa. I was not dissapointed , on my second visit took both beer & wine as advised by the waiter as they do not have... More

My friend and I went for a lunch to this restaurant having found it on the web. Google search results boasted of Bollywood style ambience and stated the opening time as 12 noon. We were disappointed on both counts! We ordered masala dosa and rice with channa masala, and salted lassi. We were pleasantly surprised at the texture of the... More

Thank you for taking the trouble to review us. I'm concerned that you found the restaurant not open at 12, because we're certainly supposed to be. Please would you tell me what day you ate there and what time the doors actually opened? I would like to make sure it doesn't happen again. Come and see us again! More

Lovely atmosphere and staff as well as availability of delicious vegan options!! What a delicious Aloo Tikki! Came back few times during our stay. Only disappointment was the polystyrene food container that we received with our take away order. Plastic bags could also be substituted with paper ones!

Aloha... having experienced this delightful boutique restaurant before its takeover and now owned by Riaz Mir, I am heartily enthralled. He's kept the charm and enhanced the floor table space intelligently. The food is an absolute treat on the palette and senses considering the fact that he's from Kashmir and a gift to Cape Town bringing a greater authenticity of... More

Been coming here for years and have always loved it. Love the food and hospitality! The aloo bombs are out of this world! Recently I left my laptop there which was very distressing! The next morning Riyaz contacted me to say he had safely stored it away. Thank you Riyaz.

We were told about Masala Dosa by friends of ours who live in CT, particularly about the vegan options. We weren't disappointed at all. Great food in a quaint little restaurant. Loved it.

Do NOT go here. Please be aware this establishment is not the same as the review in Trip Advisor. When a restaurant changes ownership this is NOT reflected in the reviews. Anyone would think reading the reviews that this was a great little place. It was fantastic tastic! It is now quite shocking! The review done a few days ago... More

We're sorry you feel the way you do, but this is very unfair. Firstly, the restaurant changed hands 3 months ago, so we deserve all the good reviews we've received since then, most of which disagree with all your judgements. Secondly, the menu is the same, the ingredients are the same, and the kitchen staff who prepare the food are... More
