Dosa in the city on Swanston street


Open 7 days a week from 11am to 9pm, I fell upon this little Dosa shop that is sharing a space with a Dim Sim shop.

There's a little one row restaurant area that stems from the back, with customers sitting and having dinner with their families. It looks very popular.

The Dosa section in the front is what interested me as there are not too many dosa places at convenient locations. So glad there's one right there in the city on a main street now. They've only been there 3 months.

The shop is on Swanston Street, just a few shops past Hungry Jacks, close to the Flinders street station. I was walking past in such a hurry I didn't actually see a number for the address, but you can't miss it.

As I have mentioned, if you were heading from Flinders street station onto Swanston street, its just a few shops past and on the same left hand side as Hungry Jacks.

If you're a lover of dosa o you want to try dosa, you will definitely want to check it out.

If you want to find out more about dosa; you know Google knows everything! *SMILES* It's basically a beautiful fermented large pancake with various fillings. The most popular is masala dosa with a potato curry folded into the dosa and served with a coconut chutney. Check it out !

Hi Jen,

Any update on this place?

I had dosa here last year when I was in Mel, I'm coming over again Thai weekend.

A friend gave me the news and I was devastated, wonderingb if they have relocated?

Plz share if u know anything.
