“Taste of authentic South India !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

I visited this place with clients and it was charmingly authentic South Indian. We loved the food spread and the cutlery used for our Thali was so original. Explanation provided by the waiters while serving food was helpful to my foreign clients decide what to eat. Live music was welcome to the ears......overall a good experience.

“expensive but decent spread”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

I had met some clients for breakfast. Their spread is good. If you are a vegetarian, then you might want to try elsewhere as the cost to value doesn't make sense. Taste was ok and nothing out of the ordinary but then it is to be mentioned that this is a 5 star hotel/restaurant and they pride in service.

“Good Place. Good Food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

10 years ago, after watching a late night movie, I took my wife and we were just married at that time. She wanted a coffee, but there was no option but to go Park Sheraton Hotel. We stepped inside the hotel and it was only the coffee shop which was open and it was some 2am. We ordered for coffee and I ordered for a veg sandwich. When the bill came, my wife casually glanced at it. She was completely shocked at the amount. It took some time for her to reconcile herself. Dakshin used to serve good food where I had visited with my family and friends several times. It is a very good place to try out. Since I am a strict vegetarian I used to insist on food being served separately without mixing it with Non-veg items. I used to instruct the server that all my food should be cooked in a separate pan and things like that. They will promise to do it that way. Good place for Good food...

“Best south Indian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

The taste of the food served here and the aroma of the spices still linger in my mind. Even a simple item like Dosa is absolutely divine here. My appreciation of south Indian cuisine multiplied manifold after eating here.
