Make A Reservation


Authentic South Indian cuisine and a casually refined atmosphere come together at DOSA, the exciting dining destination located in the vibrant cultural hub of the Mission District. Spiced to tantalize and priced for the neighborhood, DOSA is the perfect place for a festive night out, and affordable enough for a mid-week meal after a busy day at work. Lighter, occasionally spicier, and more varied in flavors than the cuisines of other parts of India. Another distinctive feature of DOSA is the attention placed on pairing wines. The wine list is carefully selected by our Wine Director, Ziya Aktas. We have specifically selected local as well as, globe-trotting, value-oriented wines for synergy with South Indian cuisine.

You haven’t really had truly authentic Indian food till you’ve dined at DOSA. Don’t take our word for it, here are a few reviews and awards…
