-By Ameeta Agnihotri

As you enter, the opulence that belongs to the South of India takes over your senses. Looking around, you will see the restaurant’s walls adorned with fabulous Tanjore paintings, and the food comes to you in regal style, served by waiters dressed in Panchegajam Veshtis. Done up in red, green and gleaming brass, Dakshin took South Indian cuisine to a new high when it opened its doors to the world in 1989. Beautiful ‘urlis’ are decorated with fresh flowers. Whatever you do, don’t miss out on the food from Iyer’s trolley. It’s legendary and has a completely captivating yum factor with recipes from Chef Parmasivan Iyer’s treasure chest, and comes accompanied by freshly ground chutneys — every one of them unique and distinct in taste. Your starters and main course is served to you from gleaming serving dishes on to your thali, which is lined with the traditional banana leaf, cut to fit. Somehow, food eaten with the fingers from a banana leaf has a flavour that no other can match. Vegetarian or non-vegetarian, Dakshin has something to everyones preference. Spongy, lace-y appams, delicately layered iddiappams, typically steamed rice, or Malabar Parottas bring flavours and tastes alive in gentle accompaniment. You must have the Yelaneer Payasam made from tender coconut flesh and top it up with the famous frothy, hot kaapi.
