Being a south indian, it was always a desire to have some nice dosas. But Dasaprakash was sucha let down, I wont suggest it to anyone else. Extremely over-priced for its class of hotels, and very average food, with some traces of south-indian flavours. Give a miss...u wont repent.

My husband had eaten here almost 15 years back when the cost of one dosa was 40 or 50 rupees. He raved about the food so much that I wanted to try it too. He insists that the quality has been maintained just the same. As a first timer, I loved it. Warning for the non-vegetarians: It is a pure vegetarian restaurant.

Unlimited supplies of sambhar, coconut chutney, potato bhaji and tomato chutney will make sure you do not run out of them. I had a rava masala dosa, upama, spicy vada dunked in sambhar and a masala dosa. All of them, superb!

For a weekend it wasn't crowded at all. But here are the numbers in case you want to call and book a table +91 562 4016123 or +91 8171390066.

The only flipside being - it opens pretty later for a south Indian joint (which are generally good breakfast outlets). Open from 12 noon to 10:45 pm. It might fall right in the middle of your sightseeing schedule. Best is to see the Taj at sunrise, come here and have a meal before you head to the fort. We went at 11:30 am and waited for our food. Ambience is cheerful and the servers encourage you to try new dishes.

Rupees 160 for a dosa or 185 for an uttapam might seem a bit steep to the pocket but it is worth a try.

Dasprakash as a south Indian restaurant chain sits some where between the authenticity of Saravana Bhavan and Palimar, and the diluted, watered down version of the Udupi joints that plague Bombay and Pune. Out side of South India, I have never come across one any place except in Agra. And it is disappointing.

First of all, it caters almost exclusively to tourists of all kinds, including foreign tour groups. Second, the true flavors and tastes of South India just do not come through. Third they are way over priced for a dusty, run down town like Agra, But for a town that is woefully lacking in decent, acceptable stand alone restaurants outside of the hotels, Dasprakash does seem like an oasis.

The best place to go for vegetarians. The south indian food is very good and the taste is very authentic. The price seems to be on a higher side if you compare it with similar chains abroad like Sarwana Bhawan. The quality and quantity is appropriate.
