The server Jason and staff were too friendly and greeted us so well. Beautiful ambience is one more thing to mention. The portions are generous and everything is made to order. The flavors are very complex and rich. If you do not like spicy food they will cook it for you to your liking and tolerance, what stands out for... More

We were craving indian food so after a hard day at one of the parks saw this place, went in and straight away after looking at the menu thought how on earth can they charge these prices, even if the dollar was at 160 to the pound it would still be a joke. I have just checked the menu on... More

We had the pleasure to meet Jennifer, one of the owners. With great patience she explained how they put an effort into keeping the food authentic even though it's difficult for... More

I've just had another enjoyable meal at Dakshin. I visit this restaurant several times a year and have been a customer for over 8 years now. I'm happy to see they are still open in the very competitive Lake Buena Vista area. It is East Indian cuisine which makes it a lot more interesting than the typical Indian restaurant. The... More

We were there for dinner about a week back. Food was good, coffee and lassie were great- but the whole experience was marred by a very chatty( and not in a good way) moody waitress who kept telling us that we were ordering a LOT of food! I mean seriously, she also refused to bring us drinks because she thought... More

First of its kind in Orlando, India's innovative cuisine, the very name 'Dakshin' evokes opulence in taste and decor.

Dakshin introduces you to a cuisine from the southern part of India stretching from the rugged coastlines of Tamil Nadu and Kerala to the sun-drenched beaches of Goa and Mumbai on India's western coast. As spectacular and surprising as the country sides are, so are the cuisines of its many communities, which were confined by and large to family kitchens, until Dakshin, the restaurant, captured and showcased them.

Created from a wealth of local spices, red chillies, coconut, pepper and spices of the coast, the cuisines of the Tamilians of Tamil Nadu, the Malayalees of Kerala, the Bunts of Mangalore, the Portuguese of Goa and the East Indians of Mumbai, are a delight to the taste buds.
