People who would like a star hotel for a breakfast or dinner may be Dakshin is for them. I did not have a good experience with their south Indian dishes. My earlier visit and their Non-veg biryani was quite authentic and tasty.

TLDR: Best Restaurant in Hyderabad Despite it's location on a map Hyderabad's history means you'll have to go out of your way to find southern cuisine. Dakshin is will then inevitably end up on you list. Located in the ITC, Dakshin honors the culture and the food of a range of southern Indian states. The tables and décor aren't high... More

Every dish was delicious and served in large quantities. The service was top notch. The personnel pampered us till the end and kept asking if we could be served some more.... More

It's my family's first visit to India and we wanted to visit Dakshin after hearing such great things about it. We travelled almost an hour to get there, but just as we were approaching the restaurant's doors, we were led to its neighbouring restaurant, K&K, instead. (*Note: Dakshin and K&K are both restaurants located within a hotel, ITC Kakatiya, in... More

I went to this restaurant expecting good old andhra thali and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of variety they offered in the South Indian cuisine. My father-in-law and I both had the seafood thali and were most happy with our decision. Kamesh, our appointed waiter was very helpful in explaining each dish and how it must be had. Overall,...

This place is truly outstanding in every aspect. There's Live Indian music being played. Service is very polite and prompt. We had Rasam first which was categorized as an apetiser in the menu .Normally rasam is had at the end of your lunch or dinner to aid in digestion. But it was a good beginning with the deep tingling flavor... More

We were extremely satisfied with our trip. The ambience is well maintained, including the authentic silverware. The food is delicious, but what bowled us is the service level of the staff.
