A lovely Dining Experience

I have been to this restaurant twice, and loved their service and food. At one time, we found the rasam just a little spicy, and the Chef immediately replaced it with another one, which was just perfect! I am definitely visiting this place again, when I am in Hyderabad next!!!

After reading so many fabulous reviews about the South Indian thali, we visited this restaurant on Sunday for lunch. The ambience is very good. but despite of Sunday we were the only people there. They served rasam as soup which was tasty but spicy. In starters banana pancakes were awesome. my son ate 4 pieces. Other starters were just ok.... More

The staff at this restaurant are awesome.. Very friendly and can learn quickly exactly the kind of food you like. If you are a cricket buff, make sure you ask them to share stories of IPL dressing rooms! Cheers :)

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.
