survey result

Nothing but good feedback again this year for this Merchant City venture, which – celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year – claims to be the ‘first authentic South Indian restaurant in Scotland’.

Well-established (est. 2004) venue in the Merchant City that’s mentioned in a (limited) number of reports as an exceptional all-rounder for its affordable and interesting introduction to the cuisine of south India.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Owner's description

Between the Arabian Sea, the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean lies a tropical expanse of endless beaches, mountain ranges and plateaus criss-crossed by a maze of rivers. The region is as diverse as it is breathtaking.

This is South India.

Encompassing the states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Telangana, South India is a land with a unique cuisine. The food is light yet nourishing, subtle yet spicy and the combination of rice, coconut, lentils, and regional spices give South Indian food a distinctive taste easily differentiated from any other region of India.

We, at Dakhin, are proud to present an undiscovered experience in every meal.
