For South Indian food, there isn't a better place to eat in Manchester. The Dosa's here are excellent, as you would expect, but the curries they also serve are really great too. The menu here is extensive and varied, the atmosphere is nice and quiet.

I have been here a few times and always loved it. The Dosas are as good as those in India and the ginger tea (chai) is just sensational. Round it all off with some pan. The staff are friendly, prompt and discreet. Great value too...More

We visit this restaurant quite regularly for a quick bite. Dosa express offers authentic food without any frills I.e. Extra price added for the furniture / shiny cutlery. Staff is friendly and service is prompt.

I find it quite difficult to find authentic Indian food in UK, as the spices are tempered to suit local tastes. However, Dosa Express is definitely a welcome exception. The Sambar had thee right type and level of spices, the idlis were tasty and soft,...More

Wow. Food: What an establishment. Authentic, tasty and wonderfully spiced curries and beers all very reasonably priced. Service: all with a smile, couldn't do enough for us - special kudos to the young tanned man with an earring (and a slightly dirty shirt!!!). Can't recommend...More

The most incredible restaurant ever and it tastes exactly like it does in India...even the tomato ketchup! This is what dining out should be like. The masala dosa, chicken lollipop and kottu chicken paratha I highly recommend!
