The ambiance (fast food restaurant) is nothing to brag about and all the food comes on styrofoam plates, but the food is incredibly cheap so I guess it's a fair trade. The service was really friendly and the guy behind the counter told me I could park my car in their parking lot, as it would be safer there. "Their" area seemed to be part their property and part sidewalk, but I ended up finding a space on the street. Either way, very thoughtful.
I couldn't decide on an appetizer so I got a two item combo described as "1 iddly, and one (something I forgot the name of) in a bowl". Sounds weird, but that's exactly what it was. Two big lumps of fried something (I believe one was lentil flour and one wheat flour), in a bowl with hot, spicy sambar poured over it. I wasn't very impressed with either of the fried items but the soup was good. I think this cost about $4.
For my entree, I got the spinach dosa. The employee asked if I wanted some potato or something in it or if I just wanted spinach. As he mentioned no additional cost, and that a few other dosa options came with multiple fillings that were the same cost as the spinach dosa, I assumed there would be no extra charge. Well, when I got the bill, I saw he charged me $1 extra. It's not the end of the world, but it would have been considerate to tell me it would cost more, as I was already ordering a lot of food and didn't really need the potatoes. The dosa itself was good, as was the coconut chutney it came with.
I can't say this was my favorite restaurant ever but if I were in the neighborhood, I wouldn't mind returning for a snack.
