We had a dinner here, I had the humongous thali, and unending spread of deliciousness. We also tried the Fish in coconut milk, and that is may be the best dish I had there. Most enthralling was our chat with the head chef there. He promised us to treat us to the best bengali Machher Jhol next time. And we... More

I have dined at this place multiple times with friends and family. The food they serve here is absolutely delicious and authentic. I always preferred it compared to many other restaurants in the vicinity for the amiable staff and delicious food. Absolutely love the appam and coconut milk they serve.

We heard about the quality of this South Indian Gem and decided to stay in the ITC hotel and have dinner. It was superb. For Indian cuisine novices, South Indian fare is distinct from the north Indian recipes found in many US and UK Indian restaurants. It features fish and seafood, and Dakshin did not disappoint.
