Indian
Dakhin restaurant in Glasgow is another head boy from the class act who brought you Dhabba. Authentic South Indian cuisine is the focus in this Merchant City destination decorated in the modern casual vernacular: sleek lines with splashes of vibrant colour. The menu features dishes without weird colourings and slicks of oil, dishes where complex flavours shine through. The specialty is dosa, thin crepes of rice and lentils stuffed with irresistible fillings, though the emphasis on vegetarian and basmatic dishes is excellent, too. The three-course thali lunch deal and the pre-theatre offer are a steal. Award-winning cuisine in a bright, modern setting – great for quick lunches and easy dinners.

Poor service and it feels more like a bar than restaurant. Starters arrived in 10 minutes but had to wait 45 minutes for main course. Food wasn’t impressive at all despite its higher prices compared with other Indian restaurants. Had stomachache after. Doesn’t get any worse than this.

There were 9 of us from work for a dinner from the US and one of our co-workers ordered a little bit of everything and we did family style sharing and the waiter had no problem accommodating our unique requests. Everyone said they loved the food, even the ones that never had Indian food before. We would definitely come back again when we visit Scotland again.

This was indeed a find. The only negative was that the staff hadn't updated their own reservation system from the Open Table booking but there was enough room.

The dosas were fab but there is no familiar naan or paratha as the restaurant is gluten free. This might not suit everyone.

Good selection of beer and ciders.

Food was excellent and the service was friendly.

From the time we went into the the restaurant and to the time we left all the staff looked after us. My wife has a severe carrot allergy and my daughter has many intolerances which they took into consideration with every dish we asked about, running back and forth to the chefs to check. The food was one of the best Indian meals we have ever tasted . We will be back next time we are in Glasgow.

The entrance needs a revamp but the waiters were knowledgeable and really friendly. The king prawn starter didn’t need the watery salad but the monk fish, lamb & chicken main to share was good. The big dosa to share was good fun! We didn’t know it was 100% gluten free until the end of the meal. We might return but wouldn’t rush...

A great find through Open Table. Doesn't look like much at the front entering but once you are in it's very modern and stylish. Meal was fresh and tasted amazing! Service was great too. Price was very reasonable. Will be visiting again!

Food was a bit of a let down.

Starters were absolutely minimal compared to other Indian restaurants. The portion was more that of a kids size.

Although, the starters were probably the tasty part of the meal.

We ordered 4 main meals , all of us left over half due to lack of flavour. We found them quite bland.

The steamed rice was fine.

The breads were horrendous, we asked the waiter for him to bring us a selection.

None were good. The paper dosa was particular bad.

We asked for 2 desserts, however 1 was sold out. The other was fine.

I wouldn't recommend or return.

We had a fantastic meal at Dakhin in Glasgow. We had not come across southern Indian food before and it was deliciously different and lighter than the food served in most UK Indian restaurants. The service was great and the restaurant a cosy and stylish retreat from the Glasgow evening drizzle. Well worth a visit.

Not necessary to book, quiet Thursday. Food very nice, authentic dishes. Service spoiled by fact waiter did not note down orders and therefore forgot a side dish which arrived much later, which spoiled the effect of the whole main course. Starter not so good but main course very tasty.

We were a group of 7 including one coeliac and one vegan. All the food was gluten free and there were loads of vegan options. The staff were so friendly and helpful and even offered to give us a deal that wasn't usually available at the time we were dining. The Dosas are amazing and all the food was really tasty and fresh. Can't recommend highly enough and can't wait to go back.
