Had the early diners set menu - two courses for £18.95. We were provided with complementary poppadoms and condiments when we sat down. I had the bajhis for starters - they were very well cooked, neither dry nor oily. Tasted great and served with a small salad. This was followed by a mild king prawn curry. I had reservations about...

Great restaurant which offers a unique menu. The paper thin, long rolls of bread are really special to accompany incredibly interesting and diverse tastes in the curries. I go here any time I'm in Glasgow after a game at hampden and am never disappointed. A truly awesome Indian restaurant 10/10

1st time at this restaurant. Very quiet as it was Sunday evening and early. Service excellent , friendly and very helpful as the menu was quite different from you usual 'curry house'. The food was excellent and accompanied by a light crispy bread about 2ft long. Will definitely return - handy location in Merchant city!

We had dinner there once in January. The food was very good and the service was quick. Staff were friendly and we were put at a table next to the big windows with nice view on the street. We've had a lovely time.

This is my second time here. The first time I was here I order curry or some kind of kari and it was unpleasant. So, I gave a second try according to my Indian friend he said that south Indian is not popular for curry dishes. He recommended dosa, so I came here to try spicy dosa dish. I add... More

Description
Established in 2004, Dakhin was the first authentic South Indian restaurant in Scotland. Set amidst the centre of Glasgow's Merchant city district, it offers diners a vast array of speciality dishes from India's southern region.

We're talking about authentic recipes using fresh natural ingredients from award-winning chefs. Food worth talking about, and a warm dining experience to savour.

Dakhin proudly features within the Michelin Guide and comes highly recommended by many food critics. If you are looking for something different from your run of the mill Indian restaurant then you'd best be sure not to miss out.
