The Top 100 Dallas Restaurants, No. 49: First-timers to Taj Chaat may well be overwhelmed with choices, but that’s a feature, not a bug. Inside this restaurant’s rambunctious dining room, at least four walls are covered with menu choices ranging from enormous, excellent dosas to trays of tapioca vada (fritters). Listen carefully, because your order number could be called from one of several locations depending on the cooking technique you’ve requested. On the way to your table, stop by the chutney bar and load up.

Top pick: Any dosa here is going to be perfectly formed and boldly flavored — and also enormous.

The downside: There’s a bit of a learning curve to the ordering process, made especially difficult because nearly all of the hundred menu items here are delicious. The dining room is not always tidy.

Fun fact: Taj Chaat is the highest-ranked explicitly vegetarian restaurant on this list.
