A word from Dakshin Indian Cuisine
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.

    I would have liked it a bit spicier. I ordered a chicken tikka massala and it was pretty mild. I am used to this dish being medium but then I've had a number of curries all over the world. This is probably designed for the American and tourist palate. I still thought it was very flavorful though. Next time I will get a spicier dish.

    We struggled with Disney/Orlando traffic, calling the restaurant to let them know we would be late. When we arrived, the staff were gracious and polite! The food was very tasty and the service very nice, too. We were 4 persons and we ordered 2 chicken dishes, 1 fish dish and a veggie option. All were enjoyable. The waiter was helpful and gave suggestions, most of which we took. I wish the location were easier to navigate; they are away from the busy street, which is nice, but getting through the intersection and into the location is difficult when traffice is heavy. I would suggest leaving a bit extra time for travel. All in all, we enjoyed the evening very much despite the traffic challenges and would highly recommend!

    We always go with a group, and order a wide variety of dishes to share. The food is delicious. The spice level is good. The kitchen can be slow and the service as well.

    While on a business trip in Orlando, I came across this gem. I was pleasantly surprised and highly recommend this authentic Indian restaurant in central Florida.

    I don't really know where to start - This is quite probably the worst Indian restaurant I have ever been in either in the USA or UK. The two young people who are running it did their best but the food is a joke, just don't go there!

    We had a fantastic Southern Indian meal at Dakshin last week. Our server was very knowledgable and helpful with choices.

    For a starter we went with the Onion Bhajia which was very good. For my entree I chose the Malabar Lamb Biryani. The only negative thing that I have to say about this dish is that I question whether the meat was truly lamb or mutton. If it was lamb it was perhaps over cooked a bit. The spice level was absolutely perfect. My wife ordered the Tikhut Kombdichi Curry. It was not bad but it was not fantastic either. She had asked for spicy but it was rather thin and unimpressive. The chicken and accompanying basmati rice were good yet unimpressive. Together with our meal we shared the Garlic Calicut Porota which was very tasty and went well with our entrees. We would recommend Dakshin for visitors of Orlando.
