Having spent some time traveling around India and Sri Lanka and falling in love with both countries and the food on offer. Dosa World is a must if you like curry and especially proper authentic curry's, I've eaten at other restaurant's around town but nothing compares to here. Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere and good service. Eating here brings back... More

The food here is ace - don't be put of by the slightly 'takeaway' look of the place. Staff were a little slow, but very polite. This is a bit different to Indian - so we were swayed by their 'signature' dishes. Not dissapointed at all!

This is the place to visit in bournemouth, for a real taste of authentic Indian flavours... The food was tasty and the size of the mains was good.

Poppadoms were really good but 4 of them only came with a very small amount of onion and mango sauce etc. Had to ask for spoons to be put in sauces. Plates to put main dishes on got brought out cold. Main food very Spicey not as expected for a masala and a mixed grill that my father had. The... More

I often frequent this restaurant only because they do actual Indian food with authentic herbs and spices and I must say their cook lives up to my expectation each time . However, my recent experiences has been terrible only because one of the staffs in there is very nosy and on my every visit asks me personal question. Only just... More

We had 2 takeaways in October, and both were really good! We had the dosa's and the dips are really good, nice and spicy. The website isn't up and running which is a shame, as I'm sure they will lose business because of this. We will definitely have a takeaway again

The food served is excellent in a reasonable price. The service is good too! On certain occasions we had to wait bit longer due to busy time but the wait was worth it. Variety of options available for vegetarians too!

On holiday in Dorset we made a detour to Bournemouth to have a delicious Masala Dosa at Dosa World for lunch. Super tasty & authentic, this in our opinion is about as good as it gets and was even better than we remembered it from our last visit. If you're like us and love South Indian street food, we urge...
