Re: Masala Dosa

I would suggest any of the Sri Lankan Tamil restaurants in Limmatplatz, way better than chennai(madras) curry house in oerlikon and worth the money too !

You can get masala dosa at Spice Inn, Horburgstrasse 19 - about two minutes from Dreirosenbrücke tram stop.

Re: Masala Dosa

I had one only yesterday.
It is made to order in front of you, spicy, fresh, delicious and cheap. I second this place.

Mind you, it's not a restaurant, rather a café. I love the atmosphere; bhangra music on the stereo, beautiful fragrance of spices in the air, people of all colours, ages, gender. The typical langstrasse types are great fun to observe

Yes. I like their Tea.And the food is also good. But i'm not so certain about the cleanliness of their snacks-samosa,wadi etc.

I can understand why you would be unsure of the hygiene.

However, I've been eating there regularly for over a year and never had a problem. I often have the Samosas, bhajias, chicken rolls and tandoori chicken. I trust this place a lot more than typical restaurants where you cannot see what's going on behind the scene. At least here, what you see is what you get.

Yes with the fresh cooked food no problem. But in the Samosa I have found on one occasion a hair.
Still I eat them there and hope for the best.

In spite of being "authentic" themselves, folks in either of these restaurants have to cater for a mainly European clientele, and so have to make concessions, daily and all the time. I suppose they know things as well as you do, but have to struggle through

Well the style is more homestyle than restaurant style, esp at Nimmi's. I would say they one at Friend's Corner is very close, except no sambar.

What part of India are you from? You better say from the deep South or we will question what you mean by authentic.

I know what you mean, but I think you're being too picky if you don't like the one at Friend's Corner.

Re: Masala Dosa

Even though I had a wonderful thali last night after yoga, this thread has made me crave a masala thosai for Deepavali. Mmmmmm.

I went there last night. Dosa wasn't crispy. The filling was nice but the raita was too sweet. We also ordered Butter Paneer - it was way too sweet.
Friendly service but the food is mediocre at best. The best dosa I have had is at Cafe Gloria on Josephstrasse and at Spice Route which has unfortunately closed down.
