    We consider ourselves Indian foodies and have often been disappointed with some restaurants we have visited. Thankfully this wasn't the case with Dakhin the food and service were out of this world . When we're back in Glasgow we'll definitely be paying it another visit

    Tasty food, friendly staff. Rather noisy (wooden floors with no baffling)

    Our booking was at 6pm and I had to ask for the pre theatre menu, which is good value. When we got served our starters the waiter said our mains were ready too and did we want them. We said no, so I can only presume they were kept hot, our starter plates were speedily removed and mains brought out. The food was tasty and plentiful. We don’t have a gluten intolerance but for those that do it will be a good restaurant.

    Having never tried a restaurant specializing in food from South India we did not know what to order and did not recognize half of the names of the courses on the menu. Our waiter walked us through the menu and gave us some great recommendations on what could go well with what. A very friendly atmosphere and fantastic food, I do recommend highly.

    First time visit but we will definitely be back. Best Indian food I’ve tasted felt the most authentic too. Great for my allergies I was so relaxed choosing my dishes with confidence.

    It's a must try restaurant, amazing food & worth every penny, the flavours are on a different level from any take away. The taster menus are great for a group meal

    We were so looking forward to having real South Indian food for my birthday and having told the waiter that we all can take our food hot , we were served with tasteless and non spicy food. The samba’s were watery and you could drink it which isn’t how it should be. We paid for the set dinner as we all wanted a fest and ended up leaving a lot of it untouched. What started as a promising dinner ended as a disappointment. ????

    Staff were very welcoming and the ambience was nice. Clean place, even the bathrooms! Food was very flavorful. The spicy chutney was perfect for me as I LOVE spicy food. Will return my next trip to Glasgow

About the restaurant

Dakhin was the first authentic South Indian restaurant in Scotland.

Set amidst the centre of Glasgow’s Merchant city district, we offer diners a vast array of speciality dishes from India’s southern region. Our unique menu of chicken, lamb, seafood and vegetarian preparations have become favourites amongst the discerning customer.

Diners can also enjoy the views of an open plan kitchen where chefs prepare dishes and breads which are a sight to be enjoyed in their own right. This along with our relaxed stylish interior has earned Dakhin its reputation as one of the best South Indian restaurants in the UK.
