SF Weekly's Description

Dosa, the folded crepelike street snack of Southern India, and its cousins, open-face uttapam (we like the paneer and peas one best), idli (lentil patties), and vada (lentil dumplings), are given pride on place in this chic and modern setting, which offers a dozen different varieties of its namesake dish. There are only a few curries on the menu, but each one is superb at this Mission District Indian restaurant. The short wine and beer list is well chosen for the spicy and intriguing fare. Pleasant bar, if you have to wait (no reservations for parties under 5).

    7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the paper masala dosa is delicious. Yum!

  • Showtime Network on 06/18/10

    A very dear friend introduced me to this amazing Indian spot. He is Indian himself so his recommendation was highly credible! The restaurant is owned by a lovely couple & the food is delicious. - Jill

    Crazy for the paper masala dosa...it's #67 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.

    Get a Dosa (of course), they're delicious. But also try the chennai chicken, which is boneless, spicy, and impossibly tender. Dip it with yogurt sauce. Yum.
