Excellent south Indian food. ALL dishes are gluten free so there is no chance of cross contamination if you are coeliac! Delicious

Each time I visit Glasgow I do my best not to miss the opportunity to having a dinner in this restaurant. It's Southern Indian, the names of the dishes are absolutely not familiar to me, but I was always assisted and advised wisely to choosing form the menu. I like the place for food, atmosphere, location and most of all... More

Booking recommended, especially at the weekend. Lovely bustling friendly ambience. We are fans of Indian food, but had not come across this style of cooking before and it was a delicious experience. Lots of options for vegetarians, friendly and helpful staff who guided us through the menu and unusually advised us not to order too much. My partner really enjoyed... More

Visited Dakhin for the 1st time and was not dissapointed. The food was superb. Our waiter was knowledgeable on the curries and his recommendations were spot on. The 2ft Crepes instead of Nan is a great alternative and lighter. The Kingfisher Lager on Draught was a great pint. 5 out of 5 for this place.

Visited around 5pm and had the pre theatre meal which was two courses. Portion size was excellent as was taste of food (South Indian Style). Great value and service compared to other places in the area. You have to try the Masala Dosa if visiting the Dakhin.

We visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and loved it, so were very pleased to find that it is as good as ever! The friendly and helpful waiter was happy to recommend accompaniments to our curries - the breads/dosas were fabulous. A good wine list, reasonably priced. Huge portions, wish we'd asked for a doggy bag! Recommended.

Ate in here for the first time and not disappointed. Indian restaurant with a difference. Service was very good, food good and a bit different from the norm. Would recommend to family and friends and would go back

Went for pre-theatre menu. Restaurant could do with bit of a re-furb - tables scratched, furnishings basic. There were only two other patrons present when we arrived. The service was very bizarre - waiter hardly said two words to us and looked like he would rather be anywhere else but there. No smiles or chat at all. We ordered chicken... More

Description
Established in 2004, Dakhin was the first authentic South Indian restaurant in Scotland. Set amidst the centre of Glasgow's Merchant city district, it offers diners a vast array of speciality dishes from India's southern region.

We're talking about authentic recipes using fresh natural ingredients from award-winning chefs. Food worth talking about, and a warm dining experience to savour.

Dakhin proudly features within the Michelin Guide and comes highly recommended by many food critics. If you are looking for something different from your run of the mill Indian restaurant then you'd best be sure not to miss out.
