Excellent food as always, friendly and helpful staff. Our friends had not been to Dosa world before were very impressed with the quality of food. Would highly recommend

Excellent food! Varied and authentic southern Indian cuisine. We would particularly recommend the chilli idly as a starter if you enjoy spicy food. Our waiter was great too! Many thanks!

The Sunday buffet was very tasty. The staff friendly and explained what was in the buffet. The price was reasonable. Beer is on tap. Overall a good experience.

We were unable to lunch yesterday as my husband had a fall so we spent the day in the local hospital. However we have booked to go to Dosa later this week as it was highly recommended to us. When I phoned to postpone our meal I was treated with politeness and understanding. All bodes well for later in the week!

Dosa World is simply the best Indian restaurant in Bournemouth and Poole area by far. The extensive menu emphasises food of quality and freshness. I have been here since it opened and the food is top notch. You must try it!

Excellence authentic Indian food. Beware can be very hot, ask for no green chilies or mild when you order if you are not tolerant to very hot curries. Reasonably priced as well.

Great food - very authentic compared to a lot of Indian restaurants I go to. Never had a dosa before - they are a must to try. We will definitely be back

One of the best and mkst affordable Indian restaurant in the town. Loved the masala dosa and chicken tikka masala is worth every bite. Must visit.

Normally love the food but was disappointed with my prawn dosa as it lacked any real fishy flavour. Also- service was quite slow which was disappointing.
