DOSA on Valencia
Great experience at Dosa.Great experience at Dosa. I had never had South Indian cuisine and very much enjoyed all of the food, as well as the interesting cocktail options offered here. Some reviews I saw prior to dining at Dosa indicated particularly large or small portions, but a starter and a dosa or uttapam was a perfect amount of food.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, troubled by a few thingsWe reserved a table for my daughter's 18th birthday celebration. We were 3 50-ish adults and two young adults. Party of 5.
We were put in a table right near the kitchen; odd since I noted on the reservation that it was a special occasion.
The food was quite good. I had the 3 course tasting menu and had enough for my lunch the following day. Chicken dish "on the bone" was in a thick sauce, though, and small pieces of bone were floating in the sauce which was a surprising crunch.
My husband ordered a dessert and they brought that dessert to my daughter with a candle... odd again.
The most troubling thing was that when they presented us with the bill, they added 20% service charge without mentioning it to us- we just happened to catch it .5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food.

Great drink menu with some "new" mixes. Really recommend if you like to eat exotic meals.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ordered all small platesWe ordered all small plates which we shared among 5 adults and one child. We loved the diversity among all the small plates.
All were somewhat spicey which the 6-yr-old could not eat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Indian FoodLoved this dining experience. Everything that was recommended by the staff was incredible. A memorable dining experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional foodI recently treated a world-traveling guest from Europe to dinner at Dosa, and when we finished the meal he looked at me and said, "That is absolutely the best Indian food I have ever had the pleasure to eat." Enough said! Worth the wait, worth the price, worth the noisy dining room. Outstanding.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNew dining experience!!I was not familiar with Dosa's style of Indian preparation. Every dish has an unique presentation ans it was really fun to see people around us reactions to their unique meals. Our meal was absolutely fabulous! Will be back next visit to San Fran!! And don't forget dessert.. We had lavender sorbet .5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to DOSA because theyI went to DOSA because they were taking part in Dine out for Life--but I will go back, because the food was delicious.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!
