The capital may have a fair share of south indian restaurants, but Dakshin is unbeatable in all aspects. With its Elaborate menu offerings, courteous staff and prompt service this is the best place in the city to enjoy an authentic south indian meal in all its glory. Big thumbs up!!!

Excellent food, excellent service, great ambience. It's one of the few places in Delhi to get good South Indian food, loved and they have a really good variety too. The only drawback of course are the steep prices - which are to be expected if you go to a place like this. And while it is definitely worth the money,... More

If you crave for good food and some great atmosphere to boot, you just cannot go wrong with Dakshin. From the moment you enter you feel like you have entered the Southern part of India. From the decor to the attire of the staff, everything is south indian. The staff's attire is very appealing. The first thing kept on our... More

Have been to Dakshin a couple of times before and every time I have enjoyed the fare served by Chef Velu. Am a fan of South Indian food and very few restaurants make me so happy as Dakshin does. Right from the various chutneys and pappads they serve to the rasam, which is a must try!! We had the Andhra... More

Me and my friend recently made a trip to the Dakshin at Sheraton for a South Indian fix.This is one of the few Restaurants In Delhi which serves Authentic South Indian food which does not include the usual Dosa and vadas. The decor of the place suggests the feel of a south Indian temple with lights being in the shape... More

The food a just brilliant....would have loved to pack in more if I really was left with any room. The Butter Milk, to Fish Moilee as well as the prawns and crab were simply delicious.To add to it...

Went there a few months back. food was good ( some dishes were not). Used to be much better earlier. Wonder why the quality has dropped. But the mutton dish we had was Fabulous( see the menu). and the appams are the best I have evr had. Will give them another chance though......
