I agree with the other reviews so won't repeat them. In sum: supremely delicious, large, all-vegan dosas. Wow! What a treat. I have only been to their Urban Market location.

I went to the urban market location and had a great meal! There are different batters and fillings to choose from- I tried a lentil batter with eggplant and sweet potato filling- and then a few chutneys to put on top. The employees were super friendly in explaining the different options, and made the recommendation of the eggplant which was delicious!! And it's all vegan! Portions are huge so you may want to share- or take home for later :-)

Pros: creative and delicious food, friendly staff, all vegan!!

I love this option in the Whole Foods at Foggy Bottom because it is delicious and independent!

All the dosas are vegan- the 3 dosa bases of petite yellow, multi and another option. They are all gluten free, too, using rice and lentil flour. Then you can pick your filling of potatoes, eggplant with sweet potato or cabbage with carrots. They all looked great, but the eggplant and sweet potato looked avant garde- maybe next time! The chutneys were tasty- the cilantro sesame was nice and spicy, the tomato peanut was rich and tasty . The dosas were more of a Vietnamese pancake style with the size and presentation. Dosa was a bit thick, but easier to eat because there was ample filling! Often, the filling is minimal in ratio comparison to the crepe/ dosa, so I was quite pleased.

The cook was nice and friendly, efficient too.

The mango lassi had yogurt, as does another chutney.

I really like this place and it exceeded my expectations! Yay!

Pros: Generous filling, Almost all vegan!!!
Cons: Small menu, Lassi not vegan
