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.

The food was great . Good choice for a vegetarian. Excellent desert. The ilaneer payasam (coconut water sweet) was really great as it was made for a diabetic.

As the name suggests the food on offer is predominantly south Indian. Hoppers and chettinad chicken is a must try. Great service and attentive staff.

Excellent ambience; good service. Little pricey. Though menu lists a number of items, the chef is willing to meet your special needs or serve items outside the menu. Do not forget to try the appams and chutneys.
