Whether it is delivery or sit in, Dakshinayan does not disappoint. Based out of Walkeshwar, this place delivers food to most parts of South Mumbai. Parking could be an issue for people who go there, but the restaurant advocates the use of the space under one particular police chowk opposite it.

The food is excellent. The menu is 100% vegetarian and the food is authentic. The sambhar and chutneys are delicious. We ordered the Panniyaram (a must try), the masala idlis, dosas (rava) and vadas. The food was excellent, service was quick and efficient and the restaurant is clean and well lit with simple decor.
Great value for money too.

Once again, do not miss the Panniyaram!!!

I went to their Pune Deccan Gym branch.

The disappointment was there appam. They just can't make it in a genuine way. Imagine eating dosa in the shape of Appam! that's all.

Appam contains only rice and coconut milk, while the socalled appam they give us was appam shaped dosa. Kurma was just paste with no vegetables at all and stew was a virtual sweet dish.

Not for genuine south food lovers, go instead to South indies university road.

This small eatery serves authentic South Indian food in South Mumbai and has been a saviour in the past whenever there was an urge to eat dosas and idli. This is one of the few South Indian restaurants who do not add sweet to their sambar and chutney to cater to the Gujarati customer. The place albeit small is neat and service is quick. You can be in and out of this place in less than half hour. Full marks to their owners.

This restaurant is very popular with the local people, who are mostly not South Indian. Therefore, some of the South Indian dishes have been tweaked a bit in terms of flavour in order to cater to the local taste.

However, it is really very, very good.

Since there is a paucity of restaurants in the immediate area, this is a boon for visitors to Malabar Hill.

Again, due to local preferences, it opens only by 11am. Being small, it gets packed late into lunch and dinner. It is therefore a good idea to arrive early in order to get a place.

Recommended are dahi vada, medu vada and the dosas. They also serve ice cream sourced from a small supplier nearby who makes very good home-made ice creams.

Excellent dhai vada to start which was soft spicy and bursting with different flavours. The dosa were very good and the offered them crispy or traditional with a multitude of stuffings.
The coconut chutney was delicious. The only average dish was the sambar which was missing drumsticks and sourness.
I would recommend this place for lunch. It is simple, clean and well maintained.
