Always solid for vegan options - Edit

Many vegan options! Dosas tasted amazing (if you've never had one, it's a fermented lentil vegan crepe)! The dish was filling and for a good price, make sure to grab some chutney :)

Pros: Excellent food, Good value

DGN factory = dosas done right - Edit

Originally opened as The dosa factory, now DGN factory, serves Indian fusion, semi fast food style.
100% vegetarian, with many vegan options, clearly marked on the extensive menu, which includes idlis, vadas, dosas, appetizers, combo specials, desserts, drinks & daily lunch specials.
"Whether it is North Indian in Saag Paneer or Paneer Tikka Masala, Indo-Chinese in Chilli Paneer, Gobi Manchurian or Schezwan Chopsuey, Indo-Italian in Pizza or Alfredo Fettuccini, Indo-Mediterranean in Falafel or our most popular dish from Mumbai in Pav Bhaji – You can find all these delicacies in South Indian Cuisine – literally… “All wrapped up in a Dosa!!"
Now with three locations, the original Galleria area eatery being joined by Missouri City & downtown tunnel locations.
Cash, credit cards accepted. Caters.
Best Gobi Manchurian in town, and the freshest lightest dosas ever served outside someone's home.

Pros: Delicious food, Indian fusion, Inexpensive

Cons: Vegetarian, Not 100% vegan

Good Dosas - Edit

My aunt brought us vegan take out from this place. But it is now called 'dgn factory'. At least that is what it says on the flyer. We had 2 kinds of Dosa and lentil donuts with a curry sauce. The food was good. Nothing too special, but for once in a while it is ok.
What I like a lot about the menu/flyer is that the dishes are marked as vegan, gluten-free and jain. So you know if a dish is not vegan.
I cannot say anything about the place or service as I have not been there.

vegan goodness - Edit

Went to The Dosa Factory for the first time. The owners were super great--told us what was vegan, what had gluten, etc. There are LOTS of vegan options, and most everything is gluten free.

Also told us how to eat dosas and what everything was :).

The food was great and the people friendly.

I'll definitely be back.

Pros: many vegan options, inexpensive, friendly folks

Fusion Indian - Edit

I really liked my experience at The Dosa Factory. It is a fast food type eatery but what that translates into is fresh food made fast. They are making traditional dosas (Indian crepes) more accessible. First, by pairing them with traditional and also non-traditional combinations (Mexican black beans and salsa, etc). Second, they also serve the dosas as wraps/burrito, with the filling inside and the dosa tucked neatly, cut into manageable pieces. If you order the dosa masala, you will still be treated to the monster crepe, without any alteration. I also recommend the idli, which I normally find too bland. Although, here they sell mini idlis with your choice for a variety of flavourful sauces. I found the food really good. The dosas were nice and crispy and not oily. They have self serve sambhar which was also very good. I also really enjoyed their kheer (Indian flavoured rice pudding, made with soy milk). Not nearly as spicy as others I have tried but still filled with flavour.

This resto is entirely vegetarian with lots of vegan options. Dosas can be modified to omit the cheese if desired.

Pros: fast, easy to eat dosa

Cons: some spicy dishes, but ask beforehand
