Tasty thali.

Awesome thali, Usually, when you order a thali (Indian Tapas) in India, the food taste and quality may vary. But in Dakshin, each and every dish is yummy. I think the price is reasonable comparing to the quality of food they serve (Even though many Indian may not agree with this comment).

The moment I had landed in Hyderabad, I was keen to taste food from the land of the Nawabs!! As a frequent traveler, I am hopping cities/states every few days. My previous visits to Kerala/Tamil Nadu/Bangalore had all been amazing in terms of culinary delights. And obviously, expectations were high from Hyderabad. To put it in brief, I was in... More

Good ambiance, efficient service and good range in the offerings but expensive . It comes to more than Rs 1500-2000 per person not including tax.

We have been there once for a business meeting. Excellent ambiance. Paintings from various south Indian states are portrayed there. Good food too. However, I didn't like the coconut milk they gave with Aappam. I felt like it was made from ready made coconut milk and not made from natural coconut. I also feel that it is a bit more... More

A very nice place to have lunch at. good food, nice ambiance, and great service. The restaurant being in ITC hotel, so price would be on a higher side. But a niche place surely.
