“best dosa place in manchester”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

This was my second visit to Dosa Express with my husband and the food was so impressive it fired up our taste buds no end.
My husband had an awesome starter - chilli idli and I had the dahi vada. For the main meal we both opted for dosas- he paneer masala and I had the madras masala dosa and were not disappointed. The menu is quite extensive.
This may be a small no frills restaurant in Didsbury on Copson St. between Wilmslow Rd and Burton Rd but the food is so good it is worth it and it is inexpensive. The place is clean, has over 40 covers and is popular with everyone - south indians included - we did notice a chinese lady and an English couple coming for take aways and they had driven there just like us.Cannot wait to go there again- soon I hope.

“Best Dosa in Manchester...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

I watch Madhu Jafferey Cookery show about Dosa on Tuesday evening.. Me & my huband decided to find a best dosa place in Manchester. Googled and found Dosa Express and Punjab tandoori. Well dosa is not from Punjab so we decided to go to Dosa express Indian restaurant.. And it did not disappoint us at all... We had paneer shashlick and idli sambar in the our starter, absolutely fantastic... For our main we had Madras Dosa & Chicken Dosa both taste heavenly amazing. Very cleaned and freshly cooked food.. No oily surprisingly very light but same time filling as well. Now we know where to go for the BEST dosa. Love it... Good service too. And come from Indian background I would say it was the best experience for South Indian food in Manchester.

“Tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

I have been to Dosa Express a couple of times. The food tastes great and the staff are friendly. The value however is amazing! Eating in: drink and a dosa for less that £5! Perfect for students! They have a student discount and deliver too!

“Ordinary fare”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Being a ardent fan of south Indian food I went to this place with lot of hopes. Service is average. Food was undercooked. Still could taste raw dough of my Vadai even though it was soaked on the sambar. Also found far too much onions in the dish. To make sure food was served quickly the quality was compromised. Long way to go.
