Everytime we visit Dakshin, it is a most rewarding culinary treat. The ambience, servings in traditional silver glasses, thalis lined with banana leaves add to the traditional experience. The servers in Jodhpur style coats, with angavastram thrown on the shoulders teamed with typical `mundus'( white lungis) add to the southern look. The lavish meal starts with hot `rasam'', followed by... More

People who would like a star hotel for a breakfast or dinner may be Dakshin is for them. I did not have a good experience with their south Indian dishes. My earlier visit and their Non-veg biryani was quite authentic and tasty.

Best place in Hyderabad for authentic South Indian food with amazing ambiance and excellent hospitality. The service and food quality is top notch. Special thanks to Mr. Antony, Kamesh and Arun for the excellent hospitality. After lunch we got pleasant surprise in the form of complimentary cake for our anniversary. We couldn't have asked for more. It really made our... More

TLDR: Best Restaurant in Hyderabad Despite it's location on a map Hyderabad's history means you'll have to go out of your way to find southern cuisine. Dakshin is will then inevitably end up on you list. Located in the ITC, Dakshin honors the culture and the food of a range of southern Indian states. The tables and décor aren't high... More

Every dish was delicious and served in large quantities. The service was top notch. The personnel pampered us till the end and kept asking if we could be served some more.... More

It's my family's first visit to India and we wanted to visit Dakshin after hearing such great things about it. We travelled almost an hour to get there, but just as we were approaching the restaurant's doors, we were led to its neighbouring restaurant, K&K, instead. (*Note: Dakshin and K&K are both restaurants located within a hotel, ITC Kakatiya, in... More

I went to this restaurant expecting good old andhra thali and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of variety they offered in the South Indian cuisine. My father-in-law and I both had the seafood thali and were most happy with our decision. Kamesh, our appointed waiter was very helpful in explaining each dish and how it must be had. Overall,...
