Went to Dkashin under the Delhi Restaurant week with friends. The entire experience was brilliant. The lady who led our service was exceptional. She quickly understood our needs and proceeded to lay out a sumptuous meal for us. There were 4 of us and we got to taste almost everything on the Restaurant Week menu. The other staff who waited on us were courteous and prompt. The food was great. The lamb melted in the mouth, the appams were perfect, the chicken was delicious, and I could go on.....Overall a great experience on the food side, made fabulous by the amazing service lead by the lady there - I regret I didn't get her name to mention it here.

Was here as part of the Restaurant Week India initiative and had the 4 course set menu. We started off with sweet, tender coconut water which whetted our appetite. Next I ordered shrimps cooked in mustard and curry leaves with coconut shavings. The portion was huge and the shrimps were perfectly cooked and spiced. The next course of boneless mutton tempered with spices was wolfed down with soft appams. The service was fantastic and knowledgable. Desserts were milk based and not as good as the rest of the food as it seemed milk powder was used as a base.
Will definitely be back

Loved the food, the condiments and the atmosphere. Dis liked the restaurant being too busy and crowded. A quieter atmosphere would have worked well with the theme.

Last night we were part of a most delectable fare at Dakshin courtesy the Delhi Gourmet Club. The menu could not have been more exhaustive and each dish was a gourmet's dream come true. The Dakshi Yera (Fried Prawns) and the Chettinad Chops were extremely succulent and tender. The main course had the best Nadang meen curry (fish curry in a coconut based gravy) I've tasted. To top it all, we had the Chicken biryani made with perfect south indian flavours. Oh, how I wish this meal could have been spread over 2 days instead of 2 hours. An absolute mouth watering affair which has made me fall in love with the place and its incredible fair.
