Insider Tips

  • After consuming countless portions over the years, from an assortment of kitchens in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, I will stick my neck out and claim – the pillowy appams and the slick Allepey fish curry at Southern Spice are the best there are
  • There are three ornate private dining rooms for a vegetarian (and regally sanctified) Brahmin Sadhya meal
  • If you have to pick between the two, go to Southern Spice for a classy meal - preferably for business lunches or a date; head to Dakshin for a colourful affair with the family or friends

Critic Rating

Amit Speaks Writer & Journalist


The best South Indian restaurant in India; there, I said it. Let me spell it out for you – the food is better than Dakshin (allegedly, it is an unacknowledged inspiration). At the moment however, Southern Spice stands out from everyone else, not only for its consistently outstanding food, but also the distinct air of chic sophistication, varnished on quintessentially South Indian motifs. The best way to sample food at Southern Spice is to order their unlimited thalis. With almost a dozen permutations, there is something for everyone, including the wine-paired, 30-course Maha Virundhu.
