Description: First of its kind in Orlando, India's innovative cuisine, the very name 'Dakshin' evokes opulence in taste and decor. Dakshin introduces you to a cuisine from the southern part of India stretching from the rugged coastlines of Tamil Nadu and Kerala to the sun-drenched beaches of Goa and Mumbai on India's western coast. As spectacular and surprising as the country sides are, so are the cuisines of its many communities, which were confined by and large to family kitchens, until Dakshin, the restaurant, captured and showcased them. Created from a wealth of local spices, red chillies, coconut, pepper and spices of the coast, the cuisines of the Tamilians of Tamil Nadu, the Malayalees of Kerala, the Bunts of Mangalore, the Portuguese of Goa and the East Indians of Mumbai, are a delight to the taste buds.

I have tried quite a few Indian restaurants in the Disney world Orlando area, and this one is my favourite so far. I especially like their lunch thali with dosa because I get to have a little bit of everything. The waiter was good & was bringing drink refills. Great food(including mango lassi) & thank God for the awesome parking!!!... More

Amazing food, Great Hospitality thanks to the server who helped us making the best choices. All the specialties of South Indian food from Kerala to Goa and Mumbai can be found under one roof. If you wish to have authentic South Indian cuisine this is the place to be.

I had an excellent experience while dining at Dakshin. The staff was very courteous and accommodating. I found the food to be Authentic. The Malabar Lamb Masala was outstanding. The Chicken Biryani was amazing. I would say that it is one of the best dishes I had in a while. Highly recommend trying out while visiting Orlando.
