So yummy, good service, pretty quick!

Hannah, September 11, 2018

Not enough meat in the Butter Chicken

Emma, August 22, 2018

The samosas and dosas were delicious and the service quick and amenable.

Eric, July 26, 2018

Fast food, huge portions. Love that the location is tucked away at the back of the store, it's like knowing about one of the city's hidden gems :)

Kat, July 20, 2018

Fantastic, friendly service! The samosa chaat was aesthetically pleasing and delicious! I loved the addition of fresh vegetables! This is a little known gem! I will return! I could not believe that they have faluda and ras malai! I give them a 5!

Marcia Chanta, July 17, 2018

good and quick service

ALLISON, July 16, 2018

The dosas were delicious and much bigger than anticipated! I would definitely recommend trying it out

Michele, July 10, 2018

Love Dosa Factory! Great food and great service! I can't wait to go back!

Nicholas, May 11, 2018

Delicious food, large portion sizes, and friendly staff and fun atmosphere--what isn't to like about Dosa Factory!

Jacqueline, May 9, 2018

Great food!

Melissa, May 8, 2018

I had a delicious meal at Dosa Factory. I got their lunch buffet, and all items were superb. I especially enjoyed the saag paneer and naan!

Karin, April 27, 2018

I liked it. It seemed like a family run business. Service was friendly.

Stephanie, April 25, 2018

come for the dosas, stay for The Bollywood music videos.

Ramie, April 22, 2018

Great food, very filing and reasonably priced also!

Evan, April 14, 2018

I didn't know this place existed, but it was a wonderland of flavors and treats! The Indian grocery in the front of house was appealing and impressively stocked (with Pride of India Darjeeling tea, which is one of my favorites!), and the back of the place houses a restaurant with delicious looking freshly made treats. The staff was very friendly and patient with my numerous questions. I will definitely be back.

Pauline, April 6, 2018

I had never eaten a dosa before, but now I am hooked! It was absolutely delicious.

Brandon, April 4, 2018

Pretty good Somosas and Pakoras. Not a lot of ambiance or seating.

David, April 1, 2018

The food was delicious!!

Georgia, March 27, 2018

The amount of food was impressive for the price. I'd say the quality was okay--the dosas were okay, but the samosas were getting a little dried out by the end of the day.

Samantha, March 19, 2018

Great Saag Paneer But Chapati was very doughy

DON, March 15, 2018

Really good but somewhat expensive

Ethan, March 7, 2018

I had a delicious dosa and the Indian grocery attached will definitely merit another visit.

Jake, March 5, 2018

Delicious, and great service. 5 out of 5.

Clare, February 27, 2018

Loved Dosa Factory! Excellent little date night and spectacular food for reasonable prices. I'll be back!

Leigh, February 24, 2018

The restaurant could do with a bit of cleaning and a simpler menu, but my meal was tasty and included several condiments.

Christina, February 19, 2018

The food was delicious, and the staff knew how to process the gift certificate.

It was great! Would go again.

M, January 17, 2018

Great service. Good food.

Netalin, January 14, 2018

Dosa Factory was actually better than I expected it would be! It's kind of a hole in the wall at the back of a mini Indian grocery shop, but the staff was nice and the food was decent. I wouldn't come here expecting greatness, but since I pass this place every day to and from work, I would stop by from time to time.

Alvin, January 11, 2018

The buffet is excellent and affordable.

Jacob, January 9, 2018

Friendly and great value!

DK, January 3, 2018

Food was delicious! NEver would have known about this place otherwise but definitely think I'll go back!

Evan, January 2, 2018

So good! The samosas were the best I've ever had.

Arielle, January 1, 2018

Delish food and amazing portion sizes. Loved tomato soup. Only thing...There was so much salt in my eggplant dosa (potatoes I think) and even salt chunk I ate

Joanne, December 22, 2017

Nice crispy dosas with flavorful fillings inside!

Elaine, December 11, 2017

Great service and food!

Jess, December 10, 2017

The dosa was much bigger than I expected! Tasty—though it did leave me badly in need of a nap!

Alex, December 9, 2017

Really yummy food!

Rashi, December 7, 2017

Service was great and food was great too!

Annie, December 6, 2017

Great food, friendly staff.

Rachelle, December 3, 2017

The dinner I had from Dosa Factory was delicious, and I will definitely order from them again in the future.

Stefan, November 28, 2017

The food was fantastic. I had a lamb dish. The flavors were great, the wait time was short, and it was a comfortable place to hang out and enjoy my food. The menu is pricey for me, so I may not be back, but the food is worth it if it's in your price range!

CHEETIRI, November 28, 2017

The eggplant dosa was delicious! Quick service.

Susan, November 28, 2017

Great value to try the buffet, which I've often wanted to try but never have because it seemed expensive. Some of the choices weren't as flavorful or spicy as I am used to, and despite being there during lunch hours many of the items weren't refreshed.

Howie, November 27, 2017

delicious and easy

Camille, November 21, 2017

The experience at Dosa factory was great, i tried 2 new dishes. The food and service were very good.

Maria, November 14, 2017

Could be a bit cleaner inside... trash everywhere and tables were dirty! Ugh!

Dr Lloyd Sheldon, November 5, 2017

Good food, good service.

Britt, November 5, 2017


Heather, November 4, 2017

Super friendly staff, amazing food

Shannon, October 31, 2017

It was fantastic! Had the chicken korma and it was just the perfect amount of spice, and the mix of sauce and other ingredients was flavorful without being overwhelming. I would definitely recommend them to friends!

Benjamin, October 28, 2017


Ya-Wen, October 27, 2017

great fresh food, varied menu..quick!

Diana, October 23, 2017

Melissa, October 5, 2017

Great food! Thank you!

Jason, October 2, 2017

It was a bit confusing to order because they partner with bao nation at the adjacent counter. Otherwise, food was pretty decent and served fairly quickly.

Maks, September 25, 2017

Very pleasant service, great food, and appreciated the buffet to go with fresh naan!

Bradford, September 21, 2017

Sheila, August 28, 2017

The food could be spicier/more authentic - but definitely a nice treat since returning from my long stay in India!

Mike, August 25, 2017

I already recommended it to my neighbor, who LOVES Indian food -- and had never heard of Dosa! I give it a 4!

Renée, August 22, 2017

Difficult to find at back of grocery store

Natasha, July 26, 2017

Delicious! Fantastic vegetarian and meat options.

A little on the oily side, but the flavor was among the best I've ever had. Also, the selection was great and the quality of the ingredients seemed very high - and fresh. Definitely going back!

Sort of slow service, but good food at a good price, and very convenient!

Ortal, July 18, 2017

Nice surprise. Hadn't heard of it before. Great aromas all over.

So glad I got this Nift gift! Walked by the restaurant, saw the outside seating, was intrigued, and then remembered I had the gift card and was very excited!

Jamie, June 28, 2017

The food and service was great! Thank you Nift for the gift!

Nico, June 25, 2017

food was great and affordable! will definitely go there again!

Megan, June 25, 2017

The food was very good. I ordered the Chicken Tikka Dosa and it was pretty good. I ordered it as a take-out and by the time I got back to my office, it was a bit of a mess. I'm sure if I had it there, it would have been intact. Still, it was flavorful and I am planning on coming back and try other menu choices.

Rory, June 22, 2017

Food was quick and quantity was good for price paid.

Matthew, June 20, 2017

Good thing I blew off the yelp reviews. Particularly liked the rose vermicelli drink

Sarah, June 20, 2017

The people there were nice! The seafood dosa I got was great and I liked the relaxed atmosphere. A tad bit pricey and I wish the lassi were less warm, but overall was very pleased.

Peggy, June 19, 2017

They were really nice and patient with me when I couldn't decide what to get. Even if the food were bad, I'd still try it again just because they were so kind.

K, June 16, 2017

Food was pretty yummy but a tad expensive.

Brianna, June 15, 2017

Good food with a unique flavour. The front counter service was nice and friendly.

Jaz, June 15, 2017

The food was delicious!

Christina, June 15, 2017

In order to redeem this nift I had to have a smart phone. I do not have a smartphone. I had to take a friend with a smartphone in order to be able to claim the nift. I had contacted you about this issue the day I received the nift but so far have not received any reply. I wish there would have been some alert as to this nift requiring a smartphone. Assuming that nifts should be inclusive and that I am not the only person without a smartphone I wish businesses would at least put a disclaimer.

Stefanie, June 14, 2017

I had the Tikki Chaat and a Mint Ginger Limeade - just the thing for lunch on a hot afternoon.

Ram, June 13, 2017

Great food. Would have never stopped in without Nift. Staff was super nice, helpful, and accomodating.

Brant, June 11, 2017

Glad the cashier knew what a Nift

Kat, June 11, 2017

Dosa Factory was delicious! The Nift coupon was super easy to use.

Good indian food, served fast

Alexander, June 8, 2017

Allie, June 7, 2017

Tasty Dosa and very friendly / helpful service. Not fancy by any stretch, but Dosa Factory is a good stop for lunch in Central Square.

Judd, June 7, 2017

The man at the counter gave me an awesome suggestion! This was my first time having dosa and I will definitely be back.

Abby, June 6, 2017

Julianne, May 30, 2017

Great Biryani!

Ramie, May 29, 2017

It's an adorable little hide-away. You'd never know it's there from the street, but I think it's a locals' gem.

Bob, May 26, 2017

Awesome food

Rachit, May 26, 2017


Ayman, May 26, 2017

I got a spicy garlic cheese dosa, and it was excellent. I haven't had a good dosa in awhile so this really hit the spot! I'd go back to try all the other flavors.

Shi-Min, May 24, 2017

My Indian trainer had warned me about the spice. I stuck to chicken tikka. It was cool eating in a Dosa. Slightly greased than I like--but I'd go there again.

Elise, May 21, 2017

Good food

Gaurav, May 20, 2017

Mary, March 31, 2017

Went to Dosa on Newbury St...Great food and service. Ask for Ruban he is well versed with the menu!

Alyssa, March 27, 2017

Very pleasant reception -- though somewhat confused at first as to what to do with a printed "gift". (I don't have a smart phone.) But -- smart & nice young man... he figured it out. Food was straightforward & good too, good value for the money. I'll be back...Thank you.

Jacqueline, March 25, 2017

The Dosa Factory was prompt, tasty, and affordable. I really enjoyed my dish (chicken tikka masala), and the complimentary rice and naan were great additions!

Justine, March 3, 2017

I give it a 5. The rice flour "dosa" was delicious. I had the fish one and my husband had the okra one. Both very delicious! Ps, the shop it is connected to us also a little bit of fun to explore!

Nina, March 2, 2017

Delicious, plentiful food and very quick service. I had the roasted eggplant dosa and mango lassi - yum!

Marya, March 2, 2017

It was amazing!

Kyra, February 25, 2017

The food was fresh

Christine, February 21, 2017

The food was awesome. They didn't really understand what "eggs" and "dairy" meant. They accommodated one small change to my dish that I requested.

Swim, February 19, 2017

Although a bit out of the way, the food did not disappoint. Generous serving, warm and hot. Lots of good vegetarian options.

Janet, February 15, 2017

Food was delicious!

Kristin, February 5, 2017

Arbinda, January 24, 2017

Food was good. I've seen this place before, but have only ever been to the grocery store in front - never to the restaurant in the back. Will definitely go back again. Would have loved to have tried the buffet to get a taste of everything but that was not allowed with this gift card.

Katherine, January 23, 2017

They were delicious and friendly! I will definitely go back
