No frills 'tiffin' joint. The food is authentic but not great. The dosa was decent, Idli and medu vada both average. The sambar tasted ok but it was more like rasam. Don't expect the taste of Chennai or Bangalore but ok for a quick snack. The biggest put off was that all food is served is disposable polystyrene plates and... More

Simple and decent dosa varieties…taste was okay although it did not exceed expectations…yet another dosa place…could really improve on the chutneys and sambar that are intrinsic to the overall dosa dining experience…did not feel compelled for another visit…also, it’d be great if they can try to avoid cheap cutlery…ambience was acceptable…self-service..

As it happens,not only are these people the same as those who used to run a popular restaurant in my Indian city of Pune, but even the cashier is the same. He recognized me after a span of some forty years since my studenthood. This "dosa" house is a no-frills dosa house, the best on Newark street, Jersey City-which has... More

We enjoyed the food Ganesh's Dosa house. Taste was awesome. We went on weekend so it was busy. We got our orders very late. Otherwise everything is good

Beware, this place is a nightmare from a car parking perspective. Utter chaos all around. Food was good. Sambar should be called rasam due to its texture. I tried the gonghkura dosa and it was very nice. The place is pretty small and be prepared to peek into your neighbor's plate.

If you are craving for authentic south Indian food this place will be a good bet for you. I like spice little bit so we ordered Maysore masla dosa and masala idli, that was really very good. They serve Thali also which you get get in just 10 bucks. I would definitely recommend this DOSA house. In terms of seating... More

We went for lunch. Had chilly bajji, dosa, chutney and chat. The eat out must take more care for hygiene, because the next day we had stomach upset and diarrhea.

The menu is not extensive, but there is enough there for most people. My daughter and I had dosas, my wife had uttapam. There was plenty of dahl available too. It is a bit rough and ready, it is very popular and can get very busy meaning you have to clear the table yourself sometimes and it can get a... More
