Extremely poor quality. We did not receive the same that we ordered. Despite waiting for more than 45 minutes, we did not receive the proper items that we ordered. Very poor service.Total waste of money. Would never recommend the restaurant to anyone

I decided to treat myself to a takeaway curry so went on Deliveroo and had a look. The score for this place on the app was quite high so gave it a try. The food took over an hour to get delivered and it was...cold, after reheating everything I only managed 3 bites before throwing everything away, it was like eating pure salt. Completely inedible and after reading the reviews on here I dread to think of the hygiene of the kitchen it was cooked in.More

not good as it was before. You get limited sambar and the non-veg dishes are that good. The only good thing is the dosa. The staff are friendly but don't do good service

Ordered for collection, when I came to collect the staff were very rude and very arrogant. To make matters worse, having asked for the curries to be mild , very politely in the comments section online, the food was extremely spicy so that no one...in our family could eat it - we had our requests completely ignored by the staff! I ordered a Dosa which was chewy and lacked flavour. Even with the 50% off online discount I still felt that I had wasted my money - shocking given the dish is in the restaurant name! Don't waste your money!More

Me and my friend visited Chennai Dosa Birmingham this afternoon and it was a total disappointment. The restaurant was like a sauna (HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT). I asked the server to switch the AC on and was told it's not working. The staff are...sweating like pig and serving food which I thing is very inappropriate in this COVID situation. We were eating piping hot good seating on a Sauna. We ordered two dishes each and we went as it was not great to be in that restaurant. I really wanted to eat more but decided not too. The overall experience has been really bad as we travelled from Manchester to Birmingham just to eat in Chennai Dosa. Very bad on behalf of the ownersMore

Very disappointed. Chicken Biryani with no chicken in it! Just two pieces of bone with tiny bit of meat on them.

It was hard to decide what to have as there was so much choice for vegetarian! The star of the show was the poondu koozhambu, honestly didn't have a clue what it was when I ordered but you need to try this! Sour lip smacking...tamarind and hot chilli spicy Gravy, but the most divine part was the gently cooked whole garlic cloves yum!! The muttar paneer was creamy and delicious too and a great contrast to the spicy sour kooz. The oothappam and chutney was average but don't let that put you off. Lovely fresh poppadoms and amazing value! Divine!More

We ordered an Easter Sunday takeaway and received a delicious selection of starters, dosa and mains. While admittedly dosa don't travel well (end up slightly soggy) the filling was delicious and the restaurant provided a big pot of sambar. The whole meal was a delight...and took us back to a recent holiday in Goa. All that was missing was some sand between our toes and a bottle of Limca!More

Me and my girlfriend went here for a meal the weekend and left very disappointed. We had to wait ages for our starter which came with no drinks which they had forgotten. I reminded them and then they only gave us one drink so had...to remind them again. We had to wait a long time again for the main which they served us the curry first and the rice about 15mins later so the curry was cold, they forgot other bits of food we ordered. Also my plate was dirty so i had to ask them for a clean one. Total shambles, Never agoing here again very overpriced too.More

Absolutely tasteless food and the worst South Indian restaurant. Chennai Dosa should cancel this franchise. To make matters worse, they won’t take card payments. Bloody cheaters
