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.

Great Food

As always the food was great but the service levels seem to have dropped from what we have been used to in the past. They will start losing customers if they don’t change that.

Top-class service, authentic South Indian cuisine...

We had our Wedding Anniversary dinner at Southern Spice, on 16 May 2019, and it was truly a memorable experience. The menu here, right down to the chutneys, is so authentic, fresh and tasty and we have been here before. But what made the experience so memorable this time was the excellent service provided by Mr. Bala. He was so clued in to what we wanted to eat, and was so eager to serve... we literally got pampered! The aapam, biryani and the payasam were so tasty, but like I said it's the service here that would make us come back. Thank you Mr. Bala... may your tribe increase!

Fantastic food! Fantastic service!

Hello! We dined at Southern Spice on 29th May. We loved the food and dining experience. The ambience was perfect and the food was really top notch. We have travelled around the world but to see Indian food is always a delight. This restaurant excels in authentic South Indian food. The seafood thali was an amazing experience and must try. Really nice ambience and attentive staff. Through it all, the person who actually made it delightful for us was our server Ganesh. He was fantastic in his service etiquette and what a seasoned hospitality personnel. He recommended us the dishes exactly as we wanted and went over and beyond our service expectations. Good service is found in a lot of places in our country but what stands as a great standard of excellence are the people who represent the brand and how much they are invested in enjoying their job. Ganesh was one of the few service givers who I believe rises above the benchmark and truly make a difference and sets new service standards. He did his job with a smile and genuine passion for service that reflected in his demeanour. He is definitely an asset to the Taj hotels and I hope he is commended and recognised for his efforts. I will be returning to dine with you’ll soon.
