“Great food experience in Chennai”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I returned to The Dakshin after two years and I must say that I was delighted that the quality of food was still very good. There was a group of musicians playing traditional South Indian music but not too loud so that we could carry on a conversation at table. The variety of South Indian food was great. The food was served on silver thalis. The coffee was excellent served or rather poured into a silver cup in the traditional way from a metre high.

“Very good food”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Amazing choice : it means that it could be difficult to choose when you are not familiar with local foods but never a bad suprise whateverbthe choice made.
People are nice and very helpful, do not hesitate to follow advices.
The only thing which is not very good is the rooms, absolutely no view since no window !

“dakshin - true to its name”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

great ambience , appropriate for peaceful meetings , if you are a voracious eater then this restaurant is the right one. you get carried away with the varieties of starters like appalams , wada , rasam alias soup . finally when the main course arrives your stomach starts crying out there is no more space to accommodate anything further !!!
