Croydon’s Dosa Lounge is located on St James Road, just outside of central Croydon and within easy reach of Addiscombe and South Norwood. It’s an unusual take on the Indian restaurant, giving diners an opportunity to sample street food straight from the subcontinent in relaxed, café style surroundings. Dosa Lounge’s cosy size makes it feel intimate and welcoming, its fresh, bright décor and entirely glass frontage making the space light and airy.
The dining concept here is deceptively simple, much of the menu taken up with the kitchen’s many and varied dosa – India’s answer to the crepe. These are made in different thicknesses and filled with delicious typically Indian ingredients with extra large family dosas and especially created children’s dosas making dining with kids a breeze. Interestingly, Dosa Lounge balances vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes perfectly, giving equal menu space to non-meat dishes, a nod to India’s many vegetarian regions.
