So glad to have found this charming restaurant in the Atwood area! The atmosphere is casual, comfortable and not loud. The wait staff is excellent and the owner comes out and talks to his customers. My husband had the lamb tagine and I had the lamb curry. Both were excellent ! The lamb is superior to lamb I can purchase.... More

This Indian, Nepalese inspired restaurant is consistently delicious. Everything is fresh and well prepared.On Friday nights they offer Walleye that stand up to the best in town. The staff is always very nice and attentive. It is a must try.

While all the Nepalese dishes our group had were very good (including the American clam chowder), the service was strangely fast and slow. It took 15 minutes for someone to take our drinks order; then another 15 minutes before the drinks came; then another 20 for the salads to arrive, which were followed almost immediately by the entrees.

I give a restaurant five stars if: The service is great, the food is great and it's a pleasant atmosphere? Dobhan is all of those things consistently. I love their lamb curry and my wife the grilled salmon. Even the rice, which I am not a big fan of is excellent here.The kitchen is well trained on how it's done... More

Spent the evening at Dobhan with a group of neighborhood friends. Restaurant is quite comfortable and roomy with an eclectic interior. Mojitos were on special, lucky us! You must try the Mojitos. We started with the Pakauda vegetable fritters and a mediterranean flat bread plate with 3 types of hummus. We chose the Bhat Tarkari Nepali spiced vegetable stew and... More
