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. We thoroughly enjoyed the generous hospitality, and of course, greatly appreciated help with... More

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.

We enjoyed eating there a couple of times. The setting is very nice although slightly kitsch. The food is of superior quality. I would recommend the fish molee: the best I ever had. There is a decent wine list and the service is first class
