Recently returned to Dobhan after a long hiatus and really enjoyed the experience. The food is basically Nepali, with many fusion-type dishes in addition. Our party of four all had the vegetarian Thali (a plate with different dishes) which was varied and tasty, the dal was particularly delicious, our only complaint was the skimpy amount of rice--there would have been...

I have been here twice and have both times ordered the Norwegian salmon with braised brussel sprouts, goat cheese and mashed potatoes - not very indonesian, but incredible! I have dreamt of this dish at least once a week since I visited. My husband and friends ordered the curry both times and raved about it. Tons of fresh veggies and... More

I recently enjoyed dinner here with a group of 8 people and each one of us thoroughly enjoyed our experience! The food is fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. The service was friendly and attentive. The drinks were excellent and the atmosphere was inviting. A great evening out.

My wife and I ate here on a whim after the place we planned on eating was closed. We had never been to a Nepali restaurant before and weren't sure what to expect. But... that's the fun. It was quite busy when we arrived at 8:15. Although we waited a bit to place our order, the server was extremely apologetic... More

We went to a show at the Barrymore Theater over the weekend. We decided to try Dobhan since it was just a block away. The exterior of the restaurant is not particularly inviting, but the menu sounded tasty and reasonably priced. When we arrived there was a small line and a few open tables. While waiting for the hostess to... More

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.

This is a great little nepali restaurant in East Madison. We went on a Friday night and had reservations and the place was packed. Despite other reviews, we saw a lot of service people and our service was quick and friendly. We had the mediterranean flat bread plate with 3 types of hummus which was excellent. We can highly recommend... More
