We go to Dakshin when our daughter is in town and meet several of her friends there. They have a very extensive menu from all over India and the area. She does the ordering for most of us. I have several favorites. Gobi Manchurian is a spicy cauliflower in a sauce. I really like this, but be warned it grows... More

My husband and I eat Indian food a lot and have been to Dakshin many times. It has always been generally good. We ate at Dakshin on Saturday night and were blown away! It was the best Indian food we have had in a long time! I tried something new and my husband got his usual and they were both... More

The food isn't the usual chicken pieces in sauce like other Indian restaurants, it's much better than that. This place is clean and service was pretty good.

Located in an old strip mall it's dining room is a rustic looking 70's steakhouse decor, certainly a casual place. We had dinner on a Saturday and arrived at 6:30 and were quickly seated. In the next 10 minutes a line began to form and while tables turned, a wait was had by all arriving until we left. The staff... More

Went there with a colleague. I had the Sukha Mutton which is rated as hot. Normally places like this will ask how hot I want it, this place didn't. The food arrived and it wasn't bat tasting. I was thrilled with ha I f to deal with the bones and gristle. I suspect this dish naturally comes this way. Flavors... More

A little hole in the wall place with the best Indian food in Louisville hands down. We have tried many other Indian restaurants here and this is the best.

They have a great selection of both Northern and Southern (dosas!!) Indian. It is fun to be able to get such a variety in one place and they do it all well. Funny enough, the buffet food often seems to be my favorite. The atmosphere is interesting and low key. You might see it and overlook it, but that would... More

A very fine dining experience with good food and nice to see that local people are also enjoying the same Indian food. The restaurant was jampacked in the afternoon timing with more of Locals from USA and lesser of Indians. Which clearly shows how nice the restaurant was and its customer service was also commendable.
