Dosa Park is opening a brand new location as part of Botley’s new West Way redevelopment scheme in March.
“We want to be open by Easter,” Dosa Park’s Manikandan Velusamy tells me, as he prepares to open their second branch, alongside their beloved first restaurant opposite Oxford station.
“We start work in two weeks and are aiming for a friendly, community-oriented venue with a simple, welcoming decor that serves both South and North Indian food to ensure we are a crowd pleaser. world,” adds Mani.
“So we’re going to be offering the South Indian food we’re so known for (we love their food, read our review here https://www.oxinabox.co.uk/review-why-the-south-indian -food-at-dosa-park-is-the-best-in-oxford/), as well as the arrival of a new North Indian chef at Botley to ensure we can cater for everyone. Because while our thalis, dosas and South Indian dishes are hugely popular, we want to please everyone.
Seating 75 people indoors and 30 outdoors, the new Dosa Park has already received very enthusiastic feedback from the local community and is located just down from the new Pappo restaurant. https://www.oxinabox.co.uk/exclusive-the-lowdown-on-new-independent-restaurant-pappo-its-ny-deli-concept-all-day-canteen-style-dining-bakery-and- bar-in-botley/
“All the locals have been very supportive and supportive. We can’t wait to join the Botley community because so many people have already asked when we’ll open, so it’s really exciting,” says Mani.
But why expand when the current premises are so popular? “It’s really by public demand,” Mani tells me. “So a lot of it is about location. We want families to be able to come and enjoy Dosa Park, people to be able to park, and our regulars and loyal customers to have more flexibility. In addition, we hope to attract many new customers who will find us more accessible,” Mani tells me.
The current Dosa Park has been open in Oxford for 12 years now. It first opened as a chicken shop, but Mani and his family soon saw a gap in the traditional South Indian food market and the results were an instant hit.
And for those who haven’t been there, what is the secret of Dosa Park? “Taste – you won’t find our food anywhere else. It’s unique,” says Mani proudly.
