Dakhin restaurant in Glasgow is another head boy from the class act who brought you Dhabba. Authentic South Indian cuisine is the focus in this Merchant City destination decorated in the modern casual vernacular: sleek lines with splashes of vibrant colour. The menu features dishes without weird colourings and slicks of oil, dishes where complex flavours shine through. The specialty is dosa, thin crepes of rice and lentils stuffed with irresistible fillings, though the emphasis on vegetarian and basmatic dishes is excellent, too. The three-course thali lunch deal and the pre-theatre offer are a steal. Award-winning cuisine in a bright, modern setting – great for quick lunches and easy dinners.

                                        Birthday dinner. Happened to fall on Valentine’s Day so restaurant busy. 40 mins for starters to arrive. Other customers arrived and served before us. Seemed to be regulars so treated differently. Food was tasty and leftovers packaged promptly. Can’t say they were in a hurry to get rid of us which was nice but service was slow.

                                        We were there on a Friday night in early December. Considering how busy they were, they seemed well organised, table was available on-time, service was very good and the food is, I think, quite unique in Glasgow. South Indian cuisine is quite different from what we are used to seeing as Indian cuisine in Glasgow, with a big emphasis on dosa as an alternative to nan or chapati. If you're used to 'regular' Indian food you'll not recognise the menu at all. If you are a party of four or more, just go for one of their taster menus and you will not be disappointed.

                                        Fantastic food and even better service, staff were really attentive but not over bearing. Delicious food too. Had the pre theatre menu which was good as the main menu is much more expensive

                                        Poor service and it feels more like a bar than restaurant. Starters arrived in 10 minutes but had to wait 45 minutes for main course. Food wasn’t impressive at all despite its higher prices compared with other Indian restaurants. Had stomachache after. Doesn’t get any worse than this.

                                        There were 9 of us from work for a dinner from the US and one of our co-workers ordered a little bit of everything and we did family style sharing and the waiter had no problem accommodating our unique requests. Everyone said they loved the food, even the ones that never had Indian food before. We would definitely come back again when we visit Scotland again.

                                        This was indeed a find. The only negative was that the staff hadn't updated their own reservation system from the Open Table booking but there was enough room. The dosas were fab but there is no familiar naan or paratha as the restaurant is gluten free. This might not suit everyone. Good selection of beer and ciders. Food was excellent and the service was friendly.

                                        From the time we went into the the restaurant and to the time we left all the staff looked after us. My wife has a severe carrot allergy and my daughter has many intolerances which they took into consideration with every dish we asked about, running back and forth to the chefs to check. The food was one of the best Indian meals we have ever tasted . We will be back next time we are in Glasgow.

                                        The entrance needs a revamp but the waiters were knowledgeable and really friendly. The king prawn starter didn’t need the watery salad but the monk fish, lamb & chicken main to share was good. The big dosa to share was good fun! We didn’t know it was 100% gluten free until the end of the meal. We might return but wouldn’t rush...

                                        We took our friends visiting from the US. They were impressed. The staff were very attentive. Would highly recommend we had a great night.

                                        Valentines Treat. Absolutely spoiled for choice with a fantastic selection of southern Indian treats. Not at all like run of the mill ‘British’ Indians.

                                        A great find through Open Table. Doesn't look like much at the front entering but once you are in it's very modern and stylish. Meal was fresh and tasted amazing! Service was great too. Price was very reasonable. Will be visiting again!

                                        Food was a bit of a let down. Starters were absolutely minimal compared to other Indian restaurants. The portion was more that of a kids size. Although, the starters were probably the tasty part of the meal. We ordered 4 main meals , all of us left over half due to lack of flavour. We found them quite bland. The steamed rice was fine. The breads were horrendous, we asked the waiter for him to bring us a selection. None were good. The paper dosa was particular bad. We asked for 2 desserts, however 1 was sold out. The other was fine. I wouldn't recommend or return.

                                        Great experience for a birthday meal. Staff were friendly and attentive and food was simply outstanding. Not your typical Indian. A unique experience.
