Dishing up Indian cuisine for over a decade now, this city centre curry house’s name has become synonymous with quality. One of only a few restaurants in Glasgow to specialise in South Indian cuisine, at Dakhin you’ll find dosa, an array of seafood and other flavour packed dishes from the South of India, all of which are gluten-free. Located on Candleriggs in the heart of Merchant City, Dakhin attracts crowds from all over Glasgow – booking in advance is advised.
Inside, an open plan kitchen and sleek decor combines with traditional wooden furniture, making Dakhin a little gem of a restaurant in Glasgow’s city centre, and its menu of South Indian specialities has been keeping crowds of curry loving Glaswegians coming back to it’s Candleriggs location for years. Every dish on the menu here is gluten-free, with a massive range of vegetarian options too.
Dosa is probably South India’s most famous dish, and Dakhin are masters when it comes to serving up these crepes stuffed with meat and vegetable fillings – try the mysore masala dosa coated with a spicy red chutney a filled with potatoes, onions, tomatoes and green peas. Other delicious options include the poondu milagai koli (a fiery chicken dish with garlic and crushed red chilli) and the yera biryani (a slow-cooked basmati rice dish with king prawns and coriander). For an authentic South Indian experience in Glasgow City centre, make a reservation at Dakhim.
Brilliant restaurant, great service, lovely food can highly recommend this restaurant. The best bit was the menu was 100% gluten free. Loved this place as did my friends can’t wait to go back and try something different from the very yummy.
I have been to this restaurant several times as I am coeliac and do not have to worry about cross contamination in the kitchen. The Southern Indian menu is a delight. Everything is beautifully cooked and full of flavour. The service is excellent and the waiters polite and helpful. We took advantage of the half price mains served early evening Monday to Friday which is excellent value. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.
