Love Dosa!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCame for Mother's Day lunchThis was our first time dining @ Dosa. We had the 3 course price fixed lunch. There were many dishes to choose from. Our server was very helpful in describing the various dishes and all were great, except for a mixed vegetable entree that had very undercooked asparagus & very al dente potatoes in it. Not my favorite, but everything else was quite good. Will definitely return...5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome restaurant.We r happyAwesome restaurant.We r happy to come again.......!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the foodGreat food, perfect sized portions and energetic ambience5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time dinningThis was our first time dinning at DOSA and we were blown away.

It was a pleasant suprise to find such a wonderful restaurant on the advice of a taxi driver.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the hypeLoved the dosa, and the fact that the small plates weren't that small! Loud enough to feel energetic, but still completely easy to talk to one another.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second dinnerThis was my second dinner at Dosa and it was a excellent as my first meal! My friends and I shared a variety of small plates, each was vibrant with spices . I love the dosa crepes but decided this time to try the Uttadam with the roasted wild mushrooms. It was just delicious! Lots of mixed mushrooms, the the uttadam crepe was a perfect platform to show off the mushrooms. I detected a bit of truffle oil which binder the mushroom flavors. My friends had the tasting menu and enjoyed every dish!
The bar's offerings are always a revelation. I had one of the best gin and tonics made from Blade Gin.
I will return for another meal.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been here many timesHave been here many times and would return. Good food and it is fun eating a Dosa with all the different sauces4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time diningThis was my first time dining and been wanting too. Had anniversary dinner and girlfriend loved it. The waiter was very helpful and suggested two great cocktails that went well with the food. I did not care too much for the "sauces" or the pickled veggies and thought it was a little strong for my taste but girlfriend loved it. Evewrything else from the fish entree, the dosa and especially the veggie sliders was amazing.

Great location for the Fillmore!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAn extensive menu made accessibleAn extensive menu made accessible by the informative guidance of the waitperson, led to a delightful dining experience. There's a casual, simple elegance to this food. And judicious application of the chutneys and sauces can service palates of varied discernment, from the sensitive to the asbestos-lined. Portions are as generous as you create. The service is excellent. One of my favorite places to exercise my appetite.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time at DOSAGreat time! I didn't quite take advantage, but the liquor selection at the bar is impressive. The Plymouth mixed drink I had from the menu was delicious as well.
Highly recommend the veggie sliders, but just ask your server, ours had great recommendations.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Service, Delicious DosaDOSA on Fillmore is a regular stop for my wife and me when visiting Japantown. The service at DOSA is outstanding, which is great, because maybe you need a little guidance with the menu, and also a little guidance on just how it is you eat those delicious items (dosas, particularly) spilling over the edges of your plate.
If you stick to the dosa / uttapam side of the menu you will find the check, when it comes, is quite reasonable, considering just how good your dosa or uttapam was. And don't forget to order some paratha - always a treat.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEast Indian food that is refined.East Indian food that is refined. The truffled dosa was crispy & delighfully tasty. This is a different kind of East Indian food. I usually have a glass of wine from India which is quite nice. The staff is always friendly.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty & great for food restrictionsThis was my third time back to Dosa in as many years, and I really enjoyed it. I always go for what is new and in season, but incorporate one dosa and one uttapam whenever I dine. They offered a wide array of choices (vegetarian/vegan/GF) which was of particular note for us. Excellent choices from appetizers through dessert, curry through sides, and many lovely drinks too. I'll be back!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must Visit in San FranciscoI love to come back here time and again. I've only visited the one on Filmore and it was probably my 5th-6th visit. As usual, everything was exceptional. My previous visit was a bit disappointing with the orders being messed up. But that wouldn't deter me from visiting again. Coming from Bangalore, a city in India that delivers the best dosas in the world, this is the best and closest to home that I can find in the bay area. You don't have to wait too much as long as you have made a reservation in advance and the whole group shows up on time. Service is extremely friendly, quick. Definitely a must visit for those who crave Dosas and the ones who want to try it.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMInsults from open table and restaurI will never go here again. I will never use Open table again. You reminded me of the date twice and then the restaurant called me. I do not make reservations that I do not intend to keep. I do not like to be called. Therefore I will never go there or use open table again. I do not like to be insulted. Too noisy....3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMthe best South Indian foodthe best South Indian food inthe city, excelelnt each and every time we dine.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMenjoyed the 3 course offering.enjoyed the 3 course offering. second course included dosas, and my green papaya choice was excellent - the dipping sauces were fantastic. definitely will go back with friends.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place if youThis is a great place if you are dining with a vegetarian friend as I was. They food is delicious and there is a balance of heat for those of us that can't do really spicy.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were at DOSA on a MondayWe were at DOSA on a Monday evening, bringing with us two friends for their first visit to DOSA. After having read some of the most recent reviews on Open Table, we grew concerned, wondering if something had changed at Dosa that was going to spoil our - and our friends' experience. Nope - eveything was just as wonderful as we had experienced in our last two visits - great food, great service and yet another lovely evening at DOSA. And for a Monday, it was bustling - not your typical Friday night crowd, mind you, but bustling. We drive from the San Ramon Valley to eat at DOSA and will continue to do so!3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest waitress in SF works here!The food was amazing but being new to the place we were not entirely sure what everything was. The waitress noticed this and she gave the best tips/advise/suggestions you could ask for. That woman was an amazing waitress. Food was great, spicy but oh-so-nice! Will definitely go again!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing! Great toFood was amazing! Great to take family, someone special or get take out. Everything was perfect and delicious! They have a special vegan menu too which I highly value.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMCilantro Fish!Recommended: bean sprout salad, lamb curry, and cilantro fish(!!).1/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
