We loved the dosa hut on Lexington and were sad when it closed. Where do you go (5 boros) to find great dosas now?

    Dosa Hutt in Flushing.

      Saravanna Bhavan and/or Tiffin walah on Lex are pretty consistent - fresh chutney and reliable masala dosa / rava dosa / uttappams. My personal favorite is the idli / wada combo - very good deal.

        I haven't had the dosa at Tiffin Wallah, I usually find it hard not to order their delicious utthapam instead. Saravanaas makes terrific dosas, however.

          I thought Saravanas was the dosa hut.

            I think Dosa Hut was on 102 Lexington Ave.

            Saravanaas is on 81 Lexington Ave. (at the corner of 26th Street) and is still open for business.

              Have they totally closed operations? I thought they were just adding an expansion.

                The place a block up from Saravanaas, on 27th and Lex, which is now Bhatti, used to be Sarvanas Dosa Hut. Completely different from the "real" Saravanaas on 26th and Lex, which came first, and outlasted the "fake" one.

                The Dosa Hut place used to just keep reinventing its name and menu every few months to copy other local restaurants.

                  Ah. Thank you for clarifying. I will check out Saravanaas!
