Dobhan is a funky Moroccan-Nepalese fusion restaurant in the Schenk's Corners/Atwood neighborhood on the east side of Madison. Their Moroccan Lamb Tagine is simply the best thing I have EVER eaten. Ever. I actually started purring, uncontrollably the first time that I ate it. Ask for it to be "juicy" to make sure that you get the full savory glory.... More

A completely satisfying meal, full of tasty surprises and friendly service. We ordered croquette appetizers to accompany Dahl and nicely dressed fresh salad. We then enjoyed lamb kabobs, pork chop and Norwegian salmon entres, all deftly prepared and perfectly seasoned. We split a slice of chocolate espresso salted Carmel cake topped with freshly made whipped cream-omg. The 13yr old was... More

Great place that captures the feel of the 'hood. You never know what the specials are going to be (fajitas, ribs, lamb curry) but they are going to be great. The hardest part for me is deciding between trying something new and going with an old favorite. The service can be a little slow (that's what kept them from 5... More

Dined on a Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy. We sampled excellent samosas for an appetizer and shared two exquisite dishes: Tikka Lamb Kebab and Coconut Chicken. The lamb dish included wonderful sautéed vegetables and rice pilaf. The chicken entree was accompanied by delicious white rice dusted with coconut, scrumptious! Generous green salads with basil lemon dressing were... More

Recently returned to Dobhan after a long hiatus and really enjoyed the experience. The food is basically Nepali, with many fusion-type dishes in addition. Our party of four all had the vegetarian Thali (a plate with different dishes) which was varied and tasty, the dal was particularly delicious, our only complaint was the skimpy amount of rice--there would have been...

I have been here twice and have both times ordered the Norwegian salmon with braised brussel sprouts, goat cheese and mashed potatoes - not very indonesian, but incredible! I have dreamt of this dish at least once a week since I visited. My husband and friends ordered the curry both times and raved about it. Tons of fresh veggies and... More

I recently enjoyed dinner here with a group of 8 people and each one of us thoroughly enjoyed our experience! The food is fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. The service was friendly and attentive. The drinks were excellent and the atmosphere was inviting. A great evening out.

My wife and I ate here on a whim after the place we planned on eating was closed. We had never been to a Nepali restaurant before and weren't sure what to expect. But... that's the fun. It was quite busy when we arrived at 8:15. Although we waited a bit to place our order, the server was extremely apologetic... More

We went to a show at the Barrymore Theater over the weekend. We decided to try Dobhan since it was just a block away. The exterior of the restaurant is not particularly inviting, but the menu sounded tasty and reasonably priced. When we arrived there was a small line and a few open tables. While waiting for the hostess to... More
