Very pleasant evening spent and enjoyed traditional Carnatic music excellently played by musicians that’s added icing on cake

My mother and i went to Dakshin and it was a wonderful experience for the mother daughter duo. The ambience couldnt have been better with focus on traditional and a cosy look. One feels like you've entered the dining area of some South Indian king. We ordered a veg thali and the thali was over flowing with flavours. It was served with smiling faces and actually made us feel like kings. What made the thali interesting was that the chef would send some or the other delicacies for us to keep trying with our thali. The food was exemplary and it is suggested to come here on an empty stomach. Apart from this they have live Indian instrumental music played by very talented artists. It's very traditional and soothing. During the end of our meals the inflow of traditional desserts was unending. The chef kept sending in very versatile sweet dishes, each competing with the previous one. Had we not convinced them that we were absolutely stuffed, it would have gone on.. :D
Overall a very satisfying gastronomical experience and another chance of bonding for my mother and me :)
Recommended.

First of all, I want to clear 2 things before getting down to the detailed review here. 1- There are more than one restaurants in Vizag with the same name but this is the authentic ITC chain of hotel's Dakshin. 2- I am basically a north Indian married to a South Indian who has just come from U.S. so my views have to be assessed accordingly
Now , let's get to the review ! Since this was my maiden visit to any Dakshin restaurant across India, I don't really have any comparison basis but what I got here was truly wonderful. It is as if all the 4 South Indian states come together to give you a glimpse into their culinary richness, their musical traditions, their art forms and even their graceful dressing in a luxurious setting of a 5 star hotel. And it is truly "Dakshin. ( south) in every sense. Their ambiance is lovely with statues of ganpati & natraj and lovely thanjavur paintings adorning the walls. 2 people perform Carnatic music live on mridangum and violin. The servers are dressed in a graceful South Indian attire. Regarding the food, we ordered veg thaali & our chef Mr. Rajiv did not disappoint us at all. Everything was awesome but I particularly loved the appam with coconut milk, payasam, tamarind rice and all the starters ( sorry dont remember all the names). And my hubby loved the food too ! So basically whichever part of India your palate belongs to, you should like it. As for all the staff, everyone was very courteous and friendly and the managers Pradip Mishra & Vankatesvar Rao were making sure we enjoy our dinner well. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a complete South Indian experience while visiting vizag and values the ambience of a place along with its food. Plus this is really close to the beach so after over-stuffing yourself with good food and wine ( they serve alcohol too ) a walk on the beach can be real nice.
