I took a trip to Leicester from Tamworth today to go to Kayal and then I spotted Dakshin directly opposite. As we only wanted a light lunch and didn't fancy paying more than £50 for a lunch, we thought we'd give it a go. The food was amazing. Nice cosy warm atmosphere in there, service was lovely and attentive without ever being over the top. My partner had an executive Thali for £7.95 I think and that was just gorgeous a chicken curry, fish curry, lamb saag, sambar, daal, yoghurt, gulab Jamon (I think she said that's what it was called sorry if that's wrong) paratha and rice. Every dish was divine. I had the Chilli egg starter which was beautiful and that was followed by Chicken chetinnadu which was too fiery for me but so tasty served with kal dosa. With a couple of nice beers and a lassi, the bill came to £22 which was an absolute bargain for a meal so lovely. We were full of smiles all afternoon. We'll definitely go again.
We visited Dakshin last Saturday, the choice of food was really great. The staff were really friendly and the food was excellent. I had the squid starter and my husband had the Andra chilli chicken, both were quite spicy but reallly tasty.
For our main we had the lamb curry (mamsam pulusu) and chicken curry (gunturu kodi kura) both from the Andhra region on the menu. The dishes were spicy the lamb especially but full of flavour and nothing like you get in your everyday Indian restaurant. We had a naan, a roti and some rice. Along with a couple of beers and double vodkas the meal came to £40, great value for a lovely meal. We will definitely be going back as the menu is quite different from anything we have ever had.
they also do a £10.95 set meal with a starter, main, side and drink.
This is a very relaxed and friendly restaurant where the food is cooked fresh so not fast food, but believe me it is worth waiting a little longer for the food.
A hidden treasure worth looking into !
