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.

    The host was wonderful, managed to create a table for us despite how busy it was and all with a welcoming attitude. There was a small mixup with the order that was compensated with a freebie. Another drawback is that it is quite noisy with the chatter but obviously not restaurant's fault - it's just crowded on weekend evenings as you would expect. The food was absolutely delicious and portions generous. Will definitely come back!

    We booked Dakhin last minute in Glasgow as it was vegan friendly, and it did not disappoint ! The food, both vegan and non vegan, was so flavoursome and fresh with quite a few options on the menu. The service was great, everyone very friendly and helpful. Great food and great value for money. We will definitely be back next time we are in Glasgow.

    Apart from Dosa the food was rather insipid, the lamb sinewy and overall not good value for money.

    This is the best restaurant ever! Third time of eating there and each time has been a delight for the taste buds. Their food is all marked for heat, gluten free, vegetarian etc, and there is a huge selection to choose from. The staff are so friendly but I would recommend booking because it was busy even on a Tuesday night. Highly recommended.

    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.
