I have eaten Indian food in many places and can truly say that this is a great restaurant. I will return to eat there. You can ask for the level of heat that you prefer.

We were a little nervous when we first walked in because there was only one other table with people. Server was great and very informative about the menu and answering our questions. Food was very good, especially the bread! Would definitely go here again!

A group of us stopped by for dinner, including three Indians. All of them thought the food was good, and I liked it as well. We ordered six different kinds of curry, each of them has a unique taste and that was a good sign.

Very authentic food, the bread was the best I've had, the waiters were attentive although we had to wait a while for drinks and the wine list offerings were not available

This is one of the best experience of many places traveled across the globe, in fact this would be by far one of the best in Orlando, in terms of food, service, ambiance, and the Lady Jennifer herself is really on the toes which mingling...More

Please do not go to this restaurant. They have no idea what they are doing and food was served so late. Missed few dishes from the order and nothing came together. Not recommended

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.
