DOSA wins Michelin Guides 2015 Bib Gourmand for the EIGHTH year! DOSA also wins BEST INDIAN for 2014 San Francisco Bay Guardian READER’S POLLfor the SEVENTH year!


DOSA, San Francisco’s first South Indian Restaurant, opened a second location in the City’s burgeoning Fillmore district to further explore the broad and diverse reaches of the South Indian culinary landscape. The new eco-friendly restaurant can not only accommodate more guests with a larger venue, but also highlights a greater breadth of regional Southern Indian specialties and showcases the urban Indian dining experience at its best through a comprehensive wine and spice-infused cocktail program.
The historic city of Hyderabad is now the shared capital of two states of modern India, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. It was established in 1591 and a hundred years later came under the influence of the Mughals from the regions of Persia and Turkey. From the early 1700’s to the end of WWII it was ruled by a dynasty known as the Nizams, or princes, of Hyderabad whose kitchens greatly influenced the cuisine of the region. The luxurious dishes were a composite of local Hindu spices and cooking techniques, combined with the roasting of meat from the Arab world and the culinary customs of the Muslim rulers. The biryani, a rice-based dish, is a signature from this region and goat is a popular meat that is marinated and cooked for hours to enhance its flavors. As the Mughal Empire spread across India it influenced the cuisine of Hyderabad in the heart of South by sharing ingredients and techniques from the North such as wheat-based breads, dairy and the use of cumin and chiles. For SF Restaurant Week we are focusing on this prominent culinary region with several new dishes! Join us!
The menu at ‘DOSA on Fillmore’ will remain ingredient and tradition-driven, while offering innovative interpretations of South Indian ‘’home-style’’ cuisine. In addition to its wonderful array of vegetarian options, the new location integrates more fish and meat dishes designed to explore the cuisine and flavors of the richly diverse Southern Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Goa. Each month, ‘DOSA on Fillmore’ will invite guests to savor signature dishes and flavors that highlight each specific region. In addition to the amazing food served, DOSA tries to create a neighborhood dining experience with “authentic” South India food presented and served in interesting ways!
