The food was excellent, service was even better. A bit expensive ($10 for a beer). I am generally not a bug fan of indian food but would not mind dining here again.

I liked the quality of food served in Dakshin which was tasty and excellent. The sweets were kept in a different area which perhaps requires going out of the dining hall.

This Hotel has been a favorite of the Chennai elite and also houses the most decent and rocking nightclub called Dublin. Dakshin is by far the best place in town to taste authentic South Indian and Coastal Cuisine. These guys have been doing it so well for so many years now, that it's become a habit. It serves Cuisines from Five Coastal States of India and I went there with a friend for a dinner. The food is deliciously lip smacking with just the perfect spices, color and appeal and the variety is to die for. The Service is beyond excellence and the servers take every table upon themselves as if you were a family member. I have never seen such dedicated and heart felt service anywhere else.

I of course tried their legendary Thali which was stupendous! Now Dakshin serves cuisines from 5 states on the south....so you are left wondering at the variety and uniqueness of every dish. i also tried crab meat which was a complete departure to the regular!

Dakshin at Park Sheraton TTK Road is arguably India's entree to the Coastal and South Indian Cuisine!

I love this restaurant for its authenticity and the variety in South Indian food. I have been here almost 6-8 times now but each time I visit I love it even more. Its definitely very expensive but then the quality of food and service negates it all.
Definitely a "must Visit" restaurant in Chennai.
