All you can eat dosas

Where else, apart from The Pongal, can i find all you can eat dosas, in lunch (or dinner) buffets in the greater Boston area?

  1. The lunch buffet (on the weekend, at least) at Bukkhara in Jamaica Plain, had a dude cookin up dosas non-stop, but that restaurant is so terrible, I wouldn't go there anyway.

      Priya, at Drum Hill in Chelmsford (next to Pho 88) was doing this. Haven't been in a little while, though.

        omg, I go into carb coma after one masala dosai. How many can you eat?

          The all-you-can-eat ones tend to be minis.

      2. Kebab Factory in Somerville will bring out a plate of dosa while you're eating your self-serve buffet food. I'm not sure how many times you can ask for a refill.

          luther, i was shocked to read this just now. Is this still the case? i have never been offered a dosa there, just the naan basket.

            this might be something they only do on weekends. We always are offered dosa there (and refills) when we go.

              i asked today. they only offer dosa as part of the buffet on weekends .

        2. Diva used to have this on occasion at their Sunday brunch, as did Cafe of India (both under the same ownership as Kebab Factory). I have not eaten at either place in over a year, so don't know what they do now. Diva used to alternate dosas with omelets for a while, which I thought was nuts. Many can produce an acceptable omelet at home, but few can produce any kind of dosa.

            It appears I'm wrong about KF being under the same ownership.

          2. Bombay Club -- I haven't been for a long time and it looks like they've moved from Harvard Square to the South End. Anyway, their website still advertises unlimited mini-dosas as part of their weekend brunch. I like the mini ones because you can still try other things and not be stuffed.

              I haven't been since they've moved from Harvard Square to the South End. I don't normally like the Bombay Club, but their weekend brunches were always excellent. I assume that they still have a chef out in the restaurant making dosas to order, and they were definitely unlimited and also very good.
