On a happy platter
To celebrate 25 years of Dakshin in India, the restaurant is going to showcase some of the signature dishes and masterchefs’ talks about their wonderful journey so far.
Dakshin opened in Chennai on 14 April 1989, on the Tamil New Year’s Day. The restaurant is offering a 10-days celebration that offers three course meal.
Dakshin is the result of years of research and trials across the four
southern states of India, by the team of chefs and culinary experts. This team sourced information and ingredients from noted and celebrated cooks in the region.
Gourmet experts from traditional south Indian communities were invited to sample the dishes as they were being developed resulting in some of the most delectable dishes from the region.
