“Matched only by a Michelin starred Indian Chef”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Having read the Trip Advisor reviews we were still not expecting a meal of such near perfection. We over ordered to try a few dishes. The samosas were sensational lamb and vegetable, crisp but dry with little oil or gee evident. How others could learn.! The sheek kebab similar but my wife and I had two signature dishes- butter chicken and lamb pepper pot. Both were stunning as was the Nan bread and mutter paneer.
At $58 for two including wine and drinks it was money well worth spent. If you are in siem reap and would like something different try this. You will not regret it. Fantastic

“Amazing Indian!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

My boyfriend and I read the reviews on TA and decided to try this place. Being from New York, our standards were high. We both agreed: dakshin was excellent. We ordered the vegetable samosas, chicken tikka masala, palak paneer and the waiter persuaded us to get the butter chicken. All dishes were incredibly tasty, high quality, and would compete toe-to-toe with our favorite Indian restaurant in New York. In fact, the butter chicken blew us away. We also ordered the plain nan and the rice biryani. Again, both were very tasty and authentic. Portions were a good size, and the whole meal including 2 waters and 2 beers cost less than $35. The service was extremely attentive, the kitchen - open and super clean, and the owners are a lovely Indian family who are so passionate about cooking and customer service. Do yourself a favor and try this place! You won't be disappointed!

“Clean and tasteful!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

This place has three great things that are worth to mention. First, it is one of the cleanest restaurants I have seen in Asia. The kitchen has large windows where you can even watch the cooks preparing your meals. Second, the cooks in this Indian restaurant are Indians (which is not the case in many other places)! And the food taste simply great! In addition, the stuff is extremely friendly and they tell you everything you want to know about the food. The owner, Indian of course, gives you recommendations and really takes care about his clients.

All in all, a great place and definitely worth to be visited when being in Siem Reap.

“nice”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I think I have finally found an Indian restaurant that is authentic for me.
Other than that, the decor is beautiful and the food tastes great (I think... after the spiciness you can't really tell what you are eating anyway).
