    This Mission spot is a decade old, and the namesake masala dosa is still good. Read more

    Get the Mysore masala dosa or the Lamb Keema dosa. Both are delicious! Also, if you end up going on a Monday, definitely get the Idly Fries!

    The difference between a dosa and a paper dosa? The paper dosa is HUGE! Also, thin and crispy and airy, and the filling comes on the side.

    Chennai chicken appetizer is tender and has some nice flavors. Mysore masala and paneer dosas are good, sambaar is spicy. Overall good food and a classier place than Udupi Palace.

    If you can handle the heat, get the spicy mango habanero chutney with your dosa. Pay with Cover to easily split the bill and get out quickly!

    The Dosas are obviously the stats, but don't sleep on the creative appetizers. Pay with Cover and dine without the hassle of the check.

    Zagat 23. Cost $39. plates that "explode with flavor" (and so much spice you may want "lots of water" handy), all backed by "darn good cocktails";
