“Excellent Indian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We dropped by Dakshin's tonight after a long day exploring Angkor. We were very impressed by the inving decor and friendly service. Additionally, the food was excellent, especially the Mutton Roghan Josh. I would recommend highly to anyone visiting Siem Reap.

“Love the Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I must say, being an British Asian, I was dubious of eating an Indian in Cambodia, and i took a punt on eating here for my Birthday! I wasn't disappointed. Although the owner is from Singapore, the food is better than most Indian restaurants in London! Good, clean, quality food in this place. The only thing is, i don't know why, but they day we went the Tandoori Chef was not there, so i couldn't try the Chicken Tikka or Naan. This place may be $2 more than other Indian restaurats in the area, but its so worth it!

Hi Sir,
Thanks for the wonderful review.My apologies that you could not try our tandoor items as it away sick and i do not compromise with my other staff preparing naan or tandoori chicken as i personally feel it will not be to my expectation.Her at Dakshin the food has to meet my desired standard before it is introduced to our guest.I do not do trial and error testing with my valued guest for the extra dollar.So on that particular day there was know tandoor item.Thank you and all the best.

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

After a bad evening yesterday at an other restaurant here in Siem Reap it was time to try something new, and we felt good just from we came inside and to we walk again. Perfect service the whole time. Good info about the food. Clean all over and fair price.

“best Samosas ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We were in this restaurant on tow occasions, the last time on the 20th June, on our first visit I had mentioned wanting to have Pepper Crab and the owner went out of his way to get the crabs and have the chef cook them for us before we left, the flavour was sensational. The chicken samosas that we had to start were so light and the best we have had in all our travels and also at home.
My partner came back for seconds on the lamb curry full of flavour and complimented by the coconut rice.....the owner very happily gave me the recipe for this. Our thanks to the owner and the staff for making the visit to this restaurant a great experience. We will be telling everyone to visit if they are in Siem Reap. Robyn and Gerry.
