Informal South Indian restaurant, appetizers, dosas, and curries
Relatively clean place, bright, open. Service was friendly enough but they are a tad short staffed.
There is an amazing selection of dosa's and they're really good. Extensive menu with many options. Server told us mild is the default and if you want spicy, you gotta ask, which is great. Could enjoy the food without suffering as happens at some places.
The other dishes we tried were not perfect, some parts of each were fantastic, some meh but everyone enjoyed every dish. Boy oh boy, some of the portions looked quite substantial! No skimping out here. Everything seemed to have been made to order (except the slow cooker curried of course), fresh and not overcooked.
We lasted the day without getting super thirsty or bloated/plugged as many other Indian places.
Highly recommended, we would return again for sure to sample the rest of the menu
This little restaurant is a bit out of the way, half a block south of Marine Drive on Fraser Street but well worth going out of the way for a lunch or dinner if you love dosas. They opened only in October 2013 but already are attracting a steady clientele despite the location. Now for the food: some of the best dosas this side of India, could compete with the best in Madras! Something like 40 varieties, both veg and non-veg. Every dosa is served with a bowl of sambar and two types of condiments (spicy and cool). They also serve various curries that come complete with rice and naan or roti. Prices are unbelievable on lunch dosa specials ($5.25 veg, $6.25 non-veg) and truly reasonable for the quality at dinner time. Staff are also very friendly and helpful. Try it!
