We visited Dakshin, Crown Plaza to get a taste of pure South Indian dishes. It was more than just food. The homely architecture, mixed with classical live music created a beautiful atmosphere. It was a very clean and well decorated restaurant. Table arrangements were perfect.

The starters and the Chatneys were great. These were served with warm Rasam with unforgettable taste. The Classic South Indian Thali came with endless number of items in huge quantity and ended with desserts. Apart from thali few of us also selected dishes from the menu and all of them were good in quality as well as quantity. Chicken preparations were very tasty and tender in consistency. Few preparations had the typical taste and smell of coconut which I personally did not like. They also provided melted ghee as per our request to enjoy it with steamed rice and dal powder.

Serving time was very little and the staffs were extremely polite. I would like to mention the name of Mr. Palani, Ebi who was very helpful and guided us about the dishes and gave perfect suggestions.

Crab ,fried prawns, mutton dry and at the end payasam and home made kulfi . Excellent food and service, dakshin is the same as it was 10 years ago when I used to come with my father. Nothing to worry about when your service head is RAJKUMAR Thanks to you sir and advance happy DIPAVLI
