I've been to many star hotels to taste different food, but never wanted to try south Indian dishes in Hyderabad. I was too afraid to lose the taste and authenticity of various foods which I tried at Chennai and Bangalore. This fear of mine was taken away by Mr. Dilip (A friend, mentor and client) who took me to Dakshin... More

It is the best restaurant to have South Indian food in Hyderabad. The ambiance of the restaurant is reflective of the temple influence, prevalent in southern India. At the entrance is the traditional brass lamp and the Urli with flower petals floating in water. It is further enhanced by the temple door menu design and the ceiling lights in the... More

Revisited the so called number one rated south Indian luxury specialty restaurant at Hyderabad and came back disappointed.A table of five for afternoon lunch, the ambiance fell short of an ultimate luxury experience.

The thali was Ok but their Kerala fish curry was excellent. It was Nellore Chapala Pulusu and perfect mix of spiciness and sourness.

I have been to this restaurant more than once, but this last visit was a special one -- to celebrate my Mom's birthday. Besides the outstanding and authentic South Indian food, what sets this place apart is the care and attention the staff give to their patrons.

Ordered a non-veg thali and a seafood thali. It was an extraordinary amount of food and I don't think a single flavor was repeated. The quality of the ingredients is top notch. Additionally the cocktails were very creative and tasty. Great for special occasions, but certainly pricey.

We have been to Dakshin 4 times, and the experience has been really uneven - from really mind-blowingly awesome to horribly disappointing. The food quality seems to be uneven as well. And dishes sampled once seem to be unavailable the next time.
