Dobhan is an ethnic restaurant that serves food with a Nepalese twist. I have been here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is tasty, freshly cooked to order, and served with a smile. The dahl soup is exceptional and there is a great range of teas. The restaurant is small and cozy with an... More

The food here is really good and pretty unique, love the sauces the come with the dishes here - yogurt and mint sauces. The rolled savory crepe (Masala Dosa) is my absolute favorite and a great value! The service can be slow, however.. so don't go if you're in a hurry or make sure they know that when we first... More

Had never been here before. Not really sure about it ahead of time. Food was excellent. Soup as starter was great. Drinks were strong. All 4 people at our table had different meals. All very good. We ate every bit. Nice portion size. I had coconut chicken, full of flavor. Atmosphere was very nice. Easy to talk but felt cozy.... More

My friends love this place; I find it varies a lot. Last week I ate there twice. The first night was slow and the service was good and the food (salmon) excellent. The dal is good if not great. A little blander than I like. The presentation was lovely. The next time I ate there was on a Friday and... More

We have been here twice and both times the food was really good. And it's a good value. The atmosphere is very comfortable. They have something on the menu for everyone.

Lamb as well in any form.Shrimp Masala, spinach salad, Lamb tagine all great. The owner was the bartender as... More

I have eaten here a million times for brunch and dinner. The food and service have always been great, but i wanted to post due to an exceptionally bad experienve today. Not sure if the 45 minute wait for my food was only due to a larger than usual crowd. But our server did nothing to update us on how... More

Not sure what the issue was, but a recent Saturday night the Back of the House was a mess. Everything from appetizers to main courses for our table and many others came out mis-timed. Our two apps were served 10 minutes a part from each other, mains set 5 minutes apart. Saw two gentlemen next to us get one sandwich... More
