There was once only one Dosa Place in Tustin, the one on Redhill. Then there were two, when the 17th Street restaurant opened in 2010. Then, somewhere along the way, the Dosa Place on Redhill became Dosa Express. And so, there was technically only one Dosa Place in Tustin, the one on 17th Street.
Then Dosa Express became Dosa Place again. But now, the 17th Street Dosa Place--which, by the way, was formerly a Tony Roma's and also Sevens Steakhouse--has shuttered and everyone involved with it has moved back to the Redhill location.
So we're back to just one Dosa Place.
