I get take-out there for lunch at least two to three times a month, but just actually sat down and had lunch there for the first time about three weeks ago. When I first learned of Dosa Temple I was blown away...everything was so flavorful. A few months ago, after getting back to the office and finally tearing into my favorite dish (Malai kofta ), I noticed something was awry. At first glance the color was off. I thought little of it at the time and continued on. Then I noticed that the taste seemed a bit off too. It wasn't nearly as flavorful as it had been in the year or so leading up to this date and there seemed to be far less golden raisins and almonds in the sauce. I have since had it several times along with other dishes, but it just hasn't been the same. I'm only speculating, but I think they might have lost a cook.
It's by far, still, my favorite Indian restaurant in the area...and one of the only all vegetarian/southern Indian places around (at least that I know of). I highly recommend it if you haven't been there. They also give a 5% discount for paying with cash. ;)Pros: All vegetarian, Southern Indian, Always friendly
Cons: No lunch buffet
