We arrived wanting fresh south Indian food. The menu showed attractive pictures of items and combos. We ordered and the price seemed reasonable, having gone to other similar type places. The cashier was urging me to pay with cash (to avoid his merchant fee) so I became a little suspicious. When the food came, it was a small amount, the... More

This is one of few places that serves typical South Indian breakfast (Idly, vada, pongal, dosa,...). Vegetarian food. Close to BART and hence could quickly have breakfast or take it to-go.

Love this place for south indian snacks or even lunch/dinner. We visit this place once a month, and the food tastes really good. The rates are also fairly reasonable.

Simple place for delicious idli, vada and various types of dosas. Sambar and chutneys are also mouth watering. Nice place to visit for weekend brunch and snacks if you like south indian cuisine.

A typical fast food look, went for lunch, bought a masala dosa and rava dosa. Dosas were rather soft and not crispy, charged $20 for 2 dosas and 1 lassi and 1 coffee. Nothing great about the food. Right opposite to another South Indian Fast food place... how can they have two restaurants selling same food across the walkway..not even... More

There's a really big menu of south Indian yummies, but I'm a sucker for the iddli sambar and dosas. As a pale North American, I find the food spicy but not punishing. I enjoy being there off-peak, like early afternoon, and sometimes there are specials. Fun, welcoming, and tasty. The ultra modern decor is getting a little grubby. Our chai... More

They provide various varieties of Dosas and Uthappams. Though the name goes by Dosa Hut, they provide lot of South Indian dishes, viz. Idly, Vada, Pongal, Mini Idly, poori etc. We had... More

We ordered cheese dosa, plain dosa and onion rava dosa. We were expecting it to be yummy based on the reviews and Fremont being hub of South Asians in US. The Dosas were dry and the Sambar not yummy at all. The Masala Chai was undercooked. Not coming back again.
