After reading many great reviews on House of Dosas, and hearing amazing things about it from some friends, I finally decided to try this small restaurant.
First of all, cash only puts me off a little. Sure, it's better for them - they don't pay the debit/credit fees, but I had to withdraw money from a close-by ATM not from my bank. Not a great start. Inside, it was crazy busy; being Monday night all dosas are $5.99. Regardless, we were seated adequately within 15 minutes. The place is small, nothing special.
Decor is sub par , bland . Couple TV's playing sports, nothing really said 'India' in there. The staff and service was pretty great though - hard working , attentive, on top of stuff. Good job there. The food arrived, promptly.
Veggie Pakora were pretty good, tiny bit soggy but good overall. My impression of the Dosa ? Not great. One of the chutneys was ok, but overall I didn't enjoy the taste experience. The crepe just didn't seem to go well with the food inside, I thought. I appreciate the nutritional value - some good ingredients there, just not very tasty. In the interest of fairness, it is my first Dosa experience.
With all the dosa hype, I was pretty disappointed in their taste. Don't see myself going back, but if dosas are your thing, I can see why you'd like this place.
