  • There is live Carnatic music at the center pavilion. If that fascinates you, ask for a table close by to watch the magic
  • Do ask for what is in Dakshin’s signature Iyer’s Trolly (tribute to the retired Parameswaran Iyer), a collection of coffeetime snacks - adasi, panniyarams and banana dosa. Other classics include yerra (masala fried prawns) and vazhai shunti (raw banana dumplings)
  • If you want to entertain guests, families or friends for South Indian food on a special occasion, without letting the formality of fine dine gets in the way, then close your eyes and head straight to Dakshin. The air of familiar joviality is effusive

Amit Speaks

4.9 /5

While the hotel has changed names (amongst many others) from ITC’s Park Sheraton to now, the Crowne Plaza Chennai - nothing seems to affect the immovable Dakshin. Arguably, the godfather of South Indian fine dining in India, Dakshin remains a jewel in the crown of ITC’s signature dining brands (no pun intended). The food, the concept, the décor (almost) and even the staff have remained seemingly unchanged at this icon, since it opened its doors in 1989, as Chef Praveen Anand’s labour of love. Accolades and legends aside, perhaps the most endearing aspect of Dakshin is seeing it sold out weekend after weekend, bustling with chirpy Chennai families eating to their hearts content, under the smiles of their venerable (and quite formidable) Tamil matriarchs. This is that kind of place.

About Dakshin, Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park

It would be a shame if you are ever visiting Chennai and go back without sampling some of its lovely southern food. If the city doesn’t offer anything else, it does offer fabulous food. Southern fare has come a long way from dosas and idlys. It is a selection of such hearty homely recipes unearthed from the trunks of Tamil grandmas. To fully understand and explore the beauty of South-Indian food, one has to go visit this iconic fine dining restaurant that stands for everything South-Indian. For authentic South-Indian food, there is no place better than ‘Dakshin’, which is said to be the godfather of South-Indian cooking in Chennai. The restaurant remains unchanged since it opened its doors in 1989 at Crowne Plaza hotel in Alwarpet. While the hotels changed hands from ITC to Crowne Plaza, Dakshin remained the same elegant self.
