One of the best restaurants in Chennai. First of all must say a special thanks to Mr. Palani. Also I would like to acknowledge Mr. Vinoth and Mr. Sukumar. All these wonderful people made our experience a very memorable one. The food was amazing. I came here mainly for the Banana Dosa which is definitely one of the signature dishes at Dakshin at surely the most tastiest in my opinion. The chutneys were second to none and the Vegetable Kurma and Mutton Curry were pretty much the best I have had. If there is one thing that I would like to see is a price reduction. I feel its very highly priced for Indian standards. For foreigners however its not a problem. Overall a very nice experience and I hope to return next time I am in Chennai.

The design of the thali explores the flavors of the region. What to eat with what is explained by the server. The experience is a complete one, all the senses are given a treat. A little garland of jasmine flowers is tucked into the hair of the diner, music or dance feeds the brain as the food explodes the taste buds.

Next to the poolside is an ideal location. The restaurant gets crowded late night as people drop in after drinks or for a late evening family dinner. So it is a motley assembly of people. The spread is sumptuous but nothing extraordinary. So is the service.
