It was a great evening with some extraordinary food and service. Went there for my parent's wedding anniversary and they truly made us feel very happy and comfortable. Keep up the good work!

I wish I had known about this restaurant before! I have come to park sheraton few times but never knew this restaurant existed until I came with some colleagues. The ambience is nice with vibrant colours, service is exceptional and the food is great. Ruban and Bharath took good care our table and suggested dishes that would suit us.. Overall... More

It is very very very difficult to satisfy the palate of a Southerner and by god I swear Dhakshin has won the war hands down. The Sura Puttu here is one to die for. Please try this place. My one suggestion is to go by the recommendations of the staff and you will not be disappointed. The Ambiance is one... More

Great ambience, courteous staffs, great hospitality & above mouth watering South Indian thali. You can not ask anything more for a lunch. It was really an amazing experience finishing my lunch on a working day with my husband. Left me wondering, what all they kept on serving continuously. Rasam, Vada,Iddiappam, Appam, curd rice & ice cream were just too good... More

If you ve tasted the best delicacies in interiors of Southern states and you miss them in metro, dakshin is a fairly good replacement for the taste buds. You may not agree it's the best you ever had, but you sure would be had the best meal of the day at the end. Recommended : coconut water payasam, ambur biriyani,... More

I have always loved this place. My recent visit reinforced the impression. Excellent south indian food - this time they had a special Saurashtrian Veg Menu also, friendly service and great ambience. The spinach soup and mini dosas from Iyer's trolley were delicious. The main course was also very good without the usually over the top spices and oil that... More

The food is good, as it has been for over the past decade that I've been visiting this restaurant. The staples like the 'BANANA DOSA' are brilliant, and always have been. I like to avoid the chicken dishes here as they rarely are as good as the seafood. Post prandial coffee is always very good. But I'm bored of the... More
