The spot for dosa's and other tasty Indian eats

I basically concur with the previous reviewers. For a dosa house, this is probably my current favourite, way ahead any of the others in town.

For starters, they do a good job of keeping the place looking modern-ish and clean. Very unlike most Indian dive's in the nearby neighbourhoods. All the tables nicely arranged with plenty of space.
The waiter was prompt and reasonably helpful, but unobtrusive. Perhaps a little unobtrusive for some tastes, but no complaints. The food came quite promptly too, but then again, in a mid-week night out, there were only 2 tables during a late dinner.

We ordered a variety of stuff, including, of course, 3 different kinds of dosa, a chicken dish and a lamb biryani. The others were good (chicken especially, quite unique. spicy, yet retaining flavour and taste not enough to kill your taste buds), but this is a dosa house, so let's evaluate mainly on that. They do have fillings that are perhaps not as common at other places, which is a nice bonus. It comes with a daal, and 2 kinds of, I guess it'd be a chutney. Both were really, really excellent in my opinion. Fresh tasting and good, unique flavours which are different than most other places I've tried. The dosa itself, great texture, has that nice crisp on the outside and then a nice bit of chew and seems to be properly fermented.
Stuffed myself pretty full, but didn't go away feeling bloated like many other joints. Heck, even let the baby eat some of the dosa, which he happily chewed on with no ill effects afterwards.

If you want a dosa, I would highly recommend this place.Of course they have other dishes there too that look like they are worth a return visit. I would definitely want to come back.

My husband & I had dinner at Madras Dosa restaurant. This is our first visit. We had Lamb Vindaloo Dosa and Madras Dosa Houses Platter which were delicious. The food weren't very spicy, but we prefer to have spicier. I loved the lamb curry inside the dosa. Will visit again when we come back to Vancouver again.

I would like to say food is incredible there. i love dosa and uttapam , good portion too, very nice place with high value for food. prices are great. but i feel ambiance is not doing justice with restaurant. chef/owner is very humble and good, every time try to check food quality and guests views. i feel its very imp to keep quality high.

will go there for sure. love
