The food is full of flavour and the vegetarian dishes packed with herbs and spices. It’s a taste sensation for each dish. Would recommend trying dishes that you wouldn’t normally try as I am sure you will not be disappointed. It’s great for couples but...More

Really like this place, the food is delicious, service is always fantastic and has lots of vegetarian options. Love the masala dosa and the dhal. My favorite Indian restaurant since moving to Sydney a year ago.

We have been to Dhakshin many times, as it is a cut above many local Indian restaurants. The menu offers more than the usual curries.The food is really delicious, the atmosphere and service is very good and the prices reasonable.

Food here was pretty good, although as a South Asian myself, I tend not to go for Indian food when I eat out, and tend to judge South Asian cuisine on a pretty high curve. Food came out quickly and was in good portion sizes....More

Perfect Indian restaurant where the food does all the work; everything choice marvellous and the barramundi curry Devine. Butter chicken perfect as was the garlic naan and saffron rice. Can’t wait to go back.

The food was absolutely delicious, tremendous flavour. A nice environment. The only disappointment was the Karwari prawn and scallop dish was expensive at $32 for the number of prawns (4) and scallops (4). We will definitely go back, but will give that dish a miss.

Nice to catchup with a group of friends. The banquet option was well worth it blending vegetarian and meat dishes. The goat curry was lovely but not a lot of meat on the bones. All good was beautifully presented. BYO and Licenced.
