Staying in a hotel nearby and came here for a treat. Best vegetarian thali ever. Lots of little surprises kept arriving to supplement the main dishes. Our brilliant waiter, Rajkumar and his lovely team enthusiastically introduced us to all the ingredients and their provenance.

The menu is vast spanning all 4 southern states. Food is well presented and all items we have tried in our numerous visits taste good.It much beyond the dosa and idly that most people are familiar with. The interiors are tastefully done in typical south style with tanjore and mysore paintings, live music etc. Dining here is quite an experience... More

The entry to Dhakshan, interior decor and furniture does not represent the 5 star standard. I rated high (four star) because of treat for delicious taste buds and polite and coordinated services. In spite of decor will visit again. Thumbs-up

Elegant, comfortable, & excellent service, it doesn't get much better than this. We tried the fish & shrimp. Both were prepared with just the right amount of spices & were delicious. We opted for extra veggies rather than any starch & were rewarded by very well prepared okra & spinach. The chutneys served to accompany the complementary papudums were exceptional.... More
