Along with the more than 15 varieties of dosa you can also find traditional Durban-style bunny chows on the menu – a portion of white bread loaf filled with meat curry (lamb or chicken) or vegetarian options (paneer or bean). Starting at R38 this is also probably one of the cheapest delicious dishes you'll eat in Joburg.
You'll find plenty more on the menu at Dosa Hut including Indo-Chinese dishes such as chicken fried rice, biriyanis that include a Keralan speciality fish biriyani, noodle dishes and soups, but we strongly recommend the house signature- the Dosa, which is made before your eyes by a chef in the open kitchen, and is a sight worth watching.
Desserts include the sweet and sticky milk-based gulab jamun, and kulfi ice cream (egg-free) plus there's a range of lassi (yoghurt drinks) and interesting fruit shakes. For drinks try the homemade juices – our favourite is the mint and lemon mix.
With plenty of vegan options available too, Dosa Hut will satisfy most tastes. Service is swift and efficient and the best way to get advice on what to order is to watch what's coming out of the kitchen and ask questions.
After your meal take a stroll across the road to Fordsburg Square to soak in the atmosphere of Joburg's little India and Pakistan district.
