House of Dosa


I grew up eating my fair share of Indian food. Not just any Indian food, but GREAT Indian food. Many Indian people actually say that curries in the UK are often better than those they have eaten in India.

That being said, it wasn’t until visiting the House of Dosa in Vancouver that I discovered there is a difference between Northern Indian Food and Southern Indian cuisine.

The curry I grew up and the one most people think of as curry, is from North India. House of Dosa serves up food from Southern India.

A dosa is like a large pancake rolled up with curry placed in the middle. Have I mentioned yet that they are amazing.

Monday is Dosa special at only $5.99.

The interior and customer service is simple but delightful.

The food aside I like the owner. He is a huge cricket fan. He will often open the restaurant at 3am so he and anyone who would like to join him can gather and watch the cricket game live via satellite. I love this passion and inclusion, they are great qualities.

Whether you go there for the food or the cricket, just go there, you won’t be disappointed.

Their website is not great, but the food is.

    House of Dosa is good but for my money the best dosa in town is at the Nooru Mahal:

    A friend of mine so loves this place that he took his then-girlfriend, now-wife there on their first date. And a few years later, when they got married in front of 20 of their closest friends (why yes, I *was* there), the “Dosa man” was also invited.

    It’s in my hood. I go when I can. The owner is very friendly. I’ve yet to go, but Wednesday is Hopper night. And, if you can resist the cheap dosas on offer on Mondays they also do a very good chicken briani.

    Also open 24 hrs now. All you in the industry can enjoy the taste of dosa all hours of the night. Get the chicken 65 or pakoras to eat while you have a beer(Raj) and wait for your meal. both amazing.

    The Chicken 65 is amazing.

    Agreed on the Chicken 65. Interestingly, it’s never been served to me the same way twice. Once I got it “wet” style with more onion and other bits of peppers/veg kind of tossed in with it like a saute. Other times it’s been dry on the outside (not the meat, just the seasoning). Both are excellent.
