Went by this place on the SW corner of Kingsway and Knight St when taking a new route home. I On Thursday evening at 7:30 the place was packed.

It was our first time at this restaurant. First of all, if you go there, bring cash. Even though they have Visa signs on the door, they also have a sign posted "cash only" and they mean it. The restaurant is old and dated and could use a scrub and paint job but the tables are clean, washrooms (a single... More

Vegetarian choices. I had the chicken Dosa and I could only get through half of it. This is a budget family run biz and they know their dosa's. The decor is diner style and rough but the food is amazing. Sauces are amazing and the food is filling.

I ate there with a friend from out of town. We caught a night when dosas were on special. If it weren't for the discount I'd have been a bit let down. It's clean enough and service was good enough. Overall, I would say it just wasn't a dine out location.

Back at the House of Dosas and the food is as fabulous as we remembered. Beautiful dosas with great side dishes. Where Indian people go to eat when in town!

If you are craving some authentic vegetarian South Indian fare such as dosas, idlis, uttapam etc....then the House of Dosas is wirth a visit. Other than being a bit messy, not unlike an informal lunch counter in Chennai, this is arguably the best dosa place in Vancouver.

Service is a little bit slow.....the tables are too close..lack of privacy...nice location...and yeah..it's also a bit expensive....the dosa which must cost around $7 costs around $10-11
