Disappointing experience

Posted on 11 / 07 / 2014

I ate at Masala Dosa for the first time last year and was excited to get a chance to go back this year. Unfortunately the food wasn't as good as the previous time. The different dishes in the thali were quite bland and all tasted more or less the same which defeats the purpose of several small dishes. Our waiter was also quite unenthusiastic and we struggled to place orders for more drinks and desserts. Whenever someone asked for another drink he would speed off and not give anyone else a chance to order. The non alcoholic drink I ordered was delicious though.

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Good drinks
Cons: Bland food, Slow and unenthusiastic service

Food is good but not overwhelming. Atmosphere is ok. Location is very convenient. It was nice to have South Indian food for a change.

Wonderful vegan masala dosas. You must try this if you haven't already. I also really enjoyed the homemade lemon mint iced tea- delicious! The owner was quite helpful and very friendly.

Pros: Vegan options, Takes reservations

Delicious chana dosa

As a dosa fan, I was delighted to discover this place in Cape Town. Both the masala dosa and the chana dosa were fresh and quite filling. The coconut chutney and sambar were similarly tasty. The owner was happy to assure us of the vegan friendly nature of the restaurant, and we will surely be returning during our stay for more delicious meals. The menu was well labelled with regards to vegan options and even included a soya lassi. There was also free wifi.
