  • The idea behind Dakshin Coastal was to tap into Mumbai's love for Malvani sea food and the craze, encouraged by Trishna, for large crabs. They've junked that idea by and large, so there is nothing very coastal about it
  • Some things about the original Dakshin concept are worth preserving. The restaurant does a vada of the day which is always a safe choice
  • Though this is not what the restaurant claims for itself, I sometimes feel it is at its best when you order a simple, light and entirely authentic South Indian vegetarian meal

Vir's Verdict

3.8 /5

I'm not sure that ITC's management agrees with me but I think that Dakshin, as a concept, is past its sell-by date. The Dakshin Coastal, a re-tweaking of the original concept, marks an improvement but I don't think it goes far enough.That said, the food, drawn from the Southern states, can be excellent. Individual dishes, such as the pandi curry from Coorg or the spicy Andhra biryani are well-executed and it is hard to eat badly here. Even the room has a certain functional elegance and the service is good.It's just the concept of an old-fashioned greatest-hits-of-South-India that I don't like.

About Dakshin Coastal, ITC Maratha, Mumbai

Many would say that you really can?t screw up South Indian food but we beg to differ. The cuisine although looks simple, has in it sheer complexity that baffles us. The amount of finesse used to bring the spices together and get that perfect balance of flavours takes some serious skills. Not many South Indian serving restaurants can claim to achieve that intricate balance but there are some places on our gourmet map that have earned their spot by consistent great food. ITC Maratha plays host to several fantastic restaurants including a South Indian one too. The place goes by traditional name of ?Dakshin Coastal?, which in itself explains everything. This establishment is one of the best South Indian serving restaurants in Mumbai and takes deep pride in it. Dakshin Coastal is a decadent experience. Take time with it.
