Lamb vindaloo dosa is my favorite dish there. Quite filling and flavorful, I'll try the chicken next time

We went on Tali Tuesday but they had a run on them and we missed out. We ordered a vegetarian dosa and a curry. Both dishes were awesome. We'll be back for tali plate Tuesday and by the way every night at this restaurant there is something going on.

Couldn't believe when someone said,"House of Dosas provide more than 100 types of Dosas", when I have not seen more than 5 or 6 types. The dosas and chutney were far delicious than what I had expected, and the sea food along with it was awesome... Never had such a sumptuous meal in near future... All the best for House... More

Today I went to another South Indian Restaurant. It was recommended by a friend of mine. And I must say that it was really great. The service was very friendly and, when asked, they explained the descriptions on the menu sufficiently in a good English. We were 3. And everyone ate something different. I ate a Onion Rava Lamb Dosa.... More

The owner Mr. Raj a very down to earth man himself served us. He has a great cook from HP in India and one of the steward is a very well trained hand in... More

I always wanted to try Dosas, but its hard to find a Southern Indian restaurant. So on my trip to Vancouver, I used Google Maps to find my way here by bus. (It was more than a 1/2 hour bus ride from downtown/WestEnd Vancouver). I came early on Monday 5:30 for dinner, since I heard that it gets crowded because... More

Beside having dosas the length of baseball bats, it is the crab curry I love! Every time I am in Vancouver this is my go to place. The crab curry is sweet, spicy, and served with rice and paratha. It is messy to eat but the crab melts in your mouth and I can't get enough of that creamy curry.... More

Cleanliness is bad. I'm scared to look into their kitchen. Dosas are good but their coconut chutney is bad, red chutney is good. Considering I know how to make dosas and chutneys and I would say they must be making a lot of money by charging $8-9 per dosa. Their expense must be not more than $1 per dosa for... More
