Good food, good service, very limited menu. Based on in flow of customers serving time may vary. Some items - dishes could be ordered if not on menu upon requesting.

Wonderful service. The food was prepared with the level of heat that each diner requested. The waitress made great suggestions. However, watch the hours as they close between lunch and dinner.

The restaurant has a total Indian vibe with temple style decor and ornate entry door. Our kids loved the ambiance. Food was very nice and they can adjust the spiciness of the curry which is very good with kids. The mango lassi was their favorite...More

First of its kind in Orlando, India's innovative cuisine, the very name 'Dakshin' evokes opulence in taste and decor. Dakshin introduces you to a cuisine from the southern part of India stretching from the rugged coastlines of Tamil Nadu and Kerala to the sun-drenched beaches of Goa and Mumbai on India's western coast. As spectacular and surprising as the country sides are, so are the cuisines of its many communities, which were confined by and large to family kitchens, until Dakshin, the restaurant, captured and showcased them. Created from a wealth of local spices, red chillies, coconut, pepper and spices of the coast, the cuisines of the Tamilians of Tamil Nadu, the Malayalees of Kerala, the Bunts of Mangalore, the Portuguese of Goa and the East Indians of Mumbai, are a delight to the taste buds.
