I didn't really know dosas until recently when a relative told me about it. We thought we should give it a go, so went to Dosa World. What a great find - food is very reasonably priced, the staff are super friendly and those super delicious crispy dosas... yum! Seriously recommended :)

wonderful food , the food was very fresh and flavoursome. Recommend the veggie dish methi paneer it was truly bursting with flavour. A taste sensation. The samosa's were very different to what I have tasted before ..lush. A range of different breads too. Do not be put off by them mentioning 'gravy' well its not in the british traditional sense...

What a fantastic discovery! Such delicious and unusual flavours! We visited mid week and the restaurant was three quarters full with other couples and local families. My first experience of a dosa meal & I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend this place to anybody.

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
