The southern regions of India have an uncommonly rich harvest of spices and terrains with the sort of affable weather conditions that encourage an expansive bounty of flora. Added to this, India’s considerable coastline, which extends all the way along the southern peninsula, has resulted in an equally rich diet of seafood.
Dakshin brings you a rare feast of dishes prepared from recipes that have been culled from kitchens – both humble and royal, across the region for a rich and diverse spread that is impossible to find in restaurants across the country. All this comes to you under one roof, for the first time in Mumbai.
Delight in feasts from Chettinad, Nellore, Mangalore, Kerala, Mysore, Tanjore and much more, served in a traditional ambience, with the warm attention of our service associates, at Dakshin, Mumbai’s most authentic South Indian cuisine restaurant.
