Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Didn’t feel like cooking, after returning from a week away, so we decided to make a return visit to this restaurant we had been taken out to a month ago. It was a quiet Monday evening, so we were able to have a lot of...interaction with the owner, who is incredibly knowledgeable about Indian cuisine. He recommended we try several dishes, including the tandoori chicken, which was mouthwatering. The ambience is understated, the service top-notch and the food is excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant in the lovely little village of Downie.More

Takeaway. Tried it twice. Awful. Tiny bits of paneer. Sauce just tasteless. Never again. Never had a curry so bad. Really wanted a good local takeaway as so few in the area. Maybe dine in is better

We had a really lovely meal at Dakshin. The staff were really nice and service was good. Nad, our waiter was really helpful, recommending some dishes that we hadn't tried before. The food was delicious. Thank you Dakshin for a very enjoyable evening.

Had one of the best curries I ve ever had. It was superb. I have been going to Dakshin for 4 years and Ali and his team pride themselves on great food and great customer service. I recommend to anyone to eat here.

Great hosting and delicious food. We thoroughly enjoyed our Wednesday night buffet to celebrate hubby's birthday. Dakshin has a fantastic selection of interesting dishes on the menu. There was less choice available for the buffet menu but there was still a great selection and plenty...to eat. The great price includes starter, main, side and rice or naan and it was all delicious. Our host was personable and looked after us very well. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and enjoyed the added excitement of running for the bus to get home. Sorry we left in a bit of a rush at the end but thanks for a fab night and hubby's birthday treat. We will certainly be back!More

What a great find! If you visit Darwin’s house then drop in for lunch or dinner. Fresh, delicious Indian cuisine at its best. Highly recommend the tikka mixed grill.

Ate there with my wife, the food was good so recommended my daughter and her friend. They had two main meals and drinks which cost just over £30 but were billed £60+. Sadly, I’ll not be returning. CHECK YOUR BILLS
