I gotta say, I'm amazed at the extreme scales of the reviews for this place. I'll start by saying that I'm a regular participant in Indian cuisine back in the UK . I went to dakshin for lunch and the place was about half full. I was met by the husband and wife team who quickly seated me and brought my drinks over. I wasn't sure what to have, but listened to the suggestions offered. I opted for a madras hot chicken dish which wasn't on the menu, but they were quite happy to alter the spiciness of any dish to suit.
My dish arrived. It was a hot chicken dish in indian gravy made with curry leaves and fresh spices, and a nice hot chilli kick. It came with lentil sambal, coconut chutney and dosa. It tasted very light, and very fresh and had that nice spicy chilli kick that I'd been missing for the past 2 weeks whilst away from the UK. I have traveled to Florida for 21years now, and I don't know how I missed this place (been here for 10years apparently). I won't miss it again, now I've found it. Sure. It ain't cheap...but then I've found most Indian restaurants over here aren't cheap, unless you opt for the buffet...which does not give the same individuality and freshness that I got today.
I left the restaurant feeling I could eat it again, but knowing I'd had enough. I guess it shows how different people really do have different tastes. The food here was definitely to my taste and I'll definitely be back.
