Plenty vegan options, okay food

Good menu with clearly labelled vegan options.
Given the small venu and the small amount of customers, it makes sense that none of the food is prepared fresh. It looked and tasted all home made, but first thing we could hear/see was the freezer being opened and then the microwave went off a lot.
The food was alright and we were full after. I have had better dosas, but if I was in the area again I would pop back in for a quick lunch.

Pros: Lots of clearly labelled vegan options on menu, Nice owner

Cons: Food is only ok

Amazing five star

The app won't let me rate five star because it's not a fully vegan place but they have everything labeled very well and they have soo many options, even gluten free too. The flavours are soo very very good and very decent portions. Really worth a go.

Pros: Food is amazing, Super friendly staff, Food so tasty, Definitely 5 star place, Epic flavours, Gluten free vegan options

Cons: None

Very flavourful meal deal

I was super surprised when I came and they offered me a vegan menu. I have ordered a Thali meal set and masala tea. I have never tried all those things before and I was a little worried about it.
The place looks a bit abandoned but the owner was very friendly and talkative.

Anyway... the food was very tasty, full of flavours, I couldn’t eat everything at once so it stayed for another day hahah!

Thali and masala tea I paid 10,50£

I’m so happy that is close to the campus.

Pros: Cheap, Good quantity , Friendly place

Surprisingly Brilliant

The place at first throws you off, as you enter and aren’t sure if it’s a restaurant or not. The service isn’t well put together but it is very friendly. “Why have you chosen here?” a friend said as we arrived. I, ashamed, replied “no one else chose anywhere and someone on Happy Cow said it was good!”

Despite this, the food is brilliant.

I really recommend it if you are in the area. The place does not know it’s worth at all. They make really inexpensive, quality food.

As an additional note - I would rate this place 5 stars from a food perspective. Re: the meat, It seems like the meat is added to the menu only as a circumstance of the general public wanting it.

Pros: Lots of Vegan Options , Quality Ingredients, Extremely Inexpensive

Outstanding Sri Lankan and Indian food

Dosa Special is a rare gem in High Wycombe. True they do serve meat, but they are exceptionally vegan friendly. Just let them know and they will look after you. The food is authentic and delicious. The Dosas are awesome and the Thali is incredible, just bring a good appetite as it is big.
The vegan dishes haven't been veganised, they just are already. Inexpensive and recommended.

Pros: good service

Cons: none
