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 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.

Good food choice, great service, friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and very authentic, not bland and devoid of spice like in some places. Friendly towards the whole family.
