What's not to like about Indian street food? We love Dosas and so decided to give this spot a try. It is a cash only cafe tucked in the back of an Indian grocery store in Central Square. The dosas were very good and the service was solid. The cafe is dirty. The tables were sticky and there was a... More

The food is good, and the quality is also wonderful. The service is good but it is not so "fast" like they claim. I would recommend coming here.

I've eaten here three times, and each time they've messed up the order and been quite rude when I try to fix it. The most recent time, they refused to honor a coupon from their menu, and kept insisting that I "use it next time!". I told them I was never eating there again, which they rudely just smirked and...

Tucked away at the back of a grocery store this restaurant or joint is easy to miss and from the experience I had it is better if it stays that way. Firstly the menu is so large, that it is distracting. What displeased me was the people staffing this plethora of options are nowhere to be seen. In hindsight, the... More

This place is easy to miss, tucked in the back of an Indian grocery store, The ambiance is strange but entertaining. Bollywood music videos play continuously. The food is quick, cheap, and tasty, and they offer a wide variety of fare. Want to try some goat meat? Dosa Factory is for you.

If a restaurant is tied to a grocery store then it is a factory for leftover from the store. Dosa was cold tasted awfull , curry was tasteless, with dirty trays and vada was sponge, chat was filled with spoilt tamarind sauce. If you really want to try indian food, skip this place you are better off throwing some frozen... More

Gives u a feeling of Deja vu. Like visiting a horribly maintained, poor service and poor hygiene in any small town in India.Besides if you have a look at the loo, you will rather go without it for days. I wonder how authorities in Cambridge are allowing them to function without demanding better standards.Convenient shopping though. Avoid restruant all costs.... More

We ordered veg Samosas, chilli garlic cheese dosa and bindi masala dosa. Veg samosa was hot from outside and cold from inside. I couldn't find chilli or garlic or cheese in my dosa. Bindi masala was ok. The lady taking our order was herself walking with her dish and eating around. The restaurant floor was dirty. They didnt bother to... More

The food can be quite spicy for non-Indians. Try the South Indian staple dishes like idli, dosa, etc...Chinese fusion dishes aren't that good. I quite like the Madras Thali. Food is pretty good and the service is also decent.

This is a great place for some authentic and well prepared Indian food. Often when I am in Boston I make the detour to Cambridge to enjoy my favourite Indian Food--Dosa. The Dosa is well made, crisp and has enough filling in it to truly enjoy it. I highly recommend this place to anyone who loves India food.
