First of all, this “restaurant” is in a food hall, so good luck finding a table, much less a clean table. And you’ll spend a few minutes trying to find it amidst all the other food locations. But I will say the food is excellent....More

Count on being ignored by the counter staff and cook. They seem unnecessarily overly bored. Otherwise food is good. Would not come back as there are far too many good options to chose from at Union Market. Came back in November 2017 and this place...More

D.C Dosa in union market was a pleasant experience. My family and I have had many Dosa’s and this Dosa is certainly up there, in terms of ranking. I tried the potato filling and it was delicious- very filling and hearty especially with the sambar....More
