A Taste of South India

A refreshing experience of Indian cuisine in Glasgow

Anyone living in Glasgow is well aware of the high volume of Indian takeaways and sit-in restaurants. Glaswegians love a curry. However some of you may be growing tiresome of the heavy fullness and grease shame that follows a delicious Indian meal. Fortunately there is an alternative. Dakhin, located in Glasgow’s Merchant City, is a fresh take on Indian food for the city. Boasting a diverse menu, Dakhin serves strictly South Indian cuisine that is 100% gluten free. Those who suffer from celiac disease and similar intolerances won’t have to scour the menu for “GF” or hound the waiter for a list of ingredients to avoid an uncomfortable reaction to the food.

Light yet nourishing, subtle yet spicy

Even for those who don’t eat gluten free, the food served at Dakhin is rich in flavour and vast in choice. South Indian cuisine is unique in reputation, differentiating from other regions of India. Predominantly rice based, South Indian food is typically cooked with coconut, lentils, and regional spices. In comparison to other Indian regions, the South cuisine is notably lighter with less grease and oil.

Dakhin: Glasgow’s South Indian Experience

Dakhin has a reputation of one of the best South Indian restaurants in the whole of the UK. This is not only due to the authenticity of the menu but the overall dining experience that Dakhin has to offer. The kitchen is open plan so customers can watch as their meal is prepared and the gluten free bread is made fresh. The overall interior is airy and relaxed, adding to the peaceful ambience within the restaurant. Dakhin also provides speciality offers for pre-theatre, groups and lunch time diners. So if you are ever in Glasgow and looking for something a little more unique than your typical Indian then you can try a taste of South India at Dakhin.
