The chutneys and dosas are crave worthy, and the waiters are kind and helpful. Both of the veg and non veg thalis offer great authentic comprehensive south Indian experience, however the food might not suit everyone's taste. Do not miss the coffee and coconut ice cream served in the end.

Went to Daskhin on a business dinner with colleagues. There were people from other countries also and they were very impressed with the food. Dakshin serves very good traditional South Indian food. The price is also reasonable compared to other 5 star hotels. Would definitely recommend to visit at least once

This south Indian restaurant has a lot of good food, both veg and non veg. The ambience is traditional Indian and very often they have live folk lore music. This is one of my favorite Indian restaurants in the city and I have been having a dinner there several times. Price is a little bit on the higher side. The... More
