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.

The food was really good. Everything we have ever tried, we loved. The specialty is Chicken Biryani, Tikka Masala, Vindaloo.This is one of the best Indian restaurants in Orlando in terms of flavor, value, ambiance and taste. We've been here maybe 3-4 times and have never been disappointed. The food is simply awesome. We will return again and again, no... 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.

I love Dakshin! Been multiple times, and i do think it is a bit pricey, but for good reason, you will always pay for quality!! Large portions, perfect blends of spices, good service! Knowledgeable servers, nice atmosphere, good location right at Crossroads near Downtown Disney. My husband was reluctant to come try it at first, he claimed he's never had... More
