Very good food

The food was awesome at this restaurant. Nothing fancy about the place but if you're looking for good Indian/Vegan food, this is the place.

Went there specifically since it was a pure veg restaurant. Tried their signature dosa. Had average tasting filling. The sambhar was good however. We also tried khasta kachori and dahi Batata puri both average at best. They should not be serving ras malai. Appeared to be rasgullas dipped in sweet milk. Will likely not return.

They have northern and southern Indian specialties. The daily special is terrific! Everything was tasty and seemed exotic. The Sosa was delicate and sumptuous!

Good Indian fast food at reasonable prices. Good menu and all of them are tasted good but North Indian items tasted better! Sambar is North Indian and thali is also North Indian. We ordered thali, Mysore masala and samosas. Nothing great or write home about! Just a fast food place with good taste! If you are hungry, you will not... More

Being from India, my family likes lots of Indian food. When we are to tired to make anything (My wife and I) we go to this amazing Indian restaurant. It was authentic Indian food, it was very very good food, we have to take an extra Paneer Sandwich to-go every time because the kids love it so much! We love... More

I go here regularly about once a week for either lunch or dinner. I always seem to order the onion dosa because I like the jalapenos!!! The atmosphere is casual, almost fast food but someone brings you your meal. You order at the counter and get your own drink and plastic tableware. It is family run and authentic if you... More

Must visit if you are missing Indian street food like Pau Bhaji, Bhel, Dosa. Quick service, considering you are in the USA and Austin a 7 on 10 for food.

I have never been disapointed by the food here I love the masala dosa.. The dosas are large and crispy with good amount of filling.. The thali's are also good.. I dont like the chana poori they serve as the poori's are not well cooked.. Over all a good place to eat..

San Antonio plays host to many Indians who come to USAA to train. You would think that San Antonio would have better than average Indian food to fulfill their needs, but sadly they don't have much to choose from. In Austin near cedar park there is a mom and pop dosa shop which will more than satisfy a craving for... More
