Just took my kids to Dosa on Fillmore last night for dinner. I like the open modern feel of the place. The music was a bit loud and the tables are a bit too close together and I had to listen to the conversation of the men next to us. I came here because I heard that they had gluten free items. The allergy menu lists "wheat free" items but should really clarify "gluten free" since they are not the same thing. I had a nice waitress and asked her for suggestions for mild dishes. She basically said that they didn't really have mild dishes. The chef/cooks make things their own way and refuse to make changes to their food for customers who prefer things on the milder side. Perhaps this explains why a large portion of the customers were Indian.
I ordered the Masala Dosa and it came in a gigantic pancake with the potato part hidden in the middle. There was a soup to dip the pancake in. The soup tasted good but was much too spicy for me. The potato part was tasty but with a kick. Not as good as the masala dosas my friend, Meena, used to make but pretty good. Next I got vegetables fried in a gluten free dough. I didn't enjoy them. My daughter got chicken biryani (which can not be made less spicy or else I would have ordered it). It comes in a bowl with chicken legs still on the bone. I tasted the rice and it set my tongue on fire. My daughter ate it but we went through two bottles of mineral water. She said it cleared up her sinuses. The only part my son and I got to enjoy was dessert. We had the mango pudding which was wonderful. My daughter had cake that she liked. I would come back for dessert only. If you love super spicy food this is your place. They use good ingredients and therefore expect to pay a lot more that your usual local Indian restaurant. Our bill was over $100.
