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.

“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Fantastic South-Indian food, staff very friendly and helpful, even with my enquiries about vegan friendly options. Definitely one of my favourite places to eat in Glasgow.

“Yet again a great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Been to the Dakhin on a number of occasions. The food is superb and the service is excellent. The food is good quality and quantity and love the dosa. We ordered two starters which was a mistake as I then could not finish my main course. If you are looking for something different then this is the place to go. I have eaten in a lot of restaurants and this is one of the top. Have also eaten in the sister restaurant The Dabba and would also recommend this one.

“1st time visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We visited with friends here after wanting a change from the usual Indian restaurants in Glasgow. First impressions were good with a fantastic smell hitting you as you climbed the stairs. We were given a table at the window looking down onto the street below.

Food was good, nice and fresh with good portion sizes.

Starter was the fish which as lovely, like I said very fresh and delicately spiced.

Main meal was lamb which was also very tasty and the lamb was cooked beautifully and there was loads of it. We had a selection of rices and breads so everyone was well fed.

Overall the meal was good, just not great, maybe our expectations were set too high from all the people talking about this place but for me I would be returning to the sister restaurant the Dhabba, before returning here. Just my own preference in terms of food and menu but I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed with a visit here.

“Perfect to get your Indian fix!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Everything you would expect from a good Indian restaurant... Fresh spicy food, a wide variety of dishes from different parts of India. Warm, yet efficient, service... perhaps a little hard to flag down, but not desperately so. It's very clean, not fancy. I'd perhaps expected a slightly better value from the restaurant, but it's ok. And of course, you come out smelling like a spice market. This place was a welcome respite from the rest of our culinary experience in Glasgow.
