Dakshin’ restaurant at Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park turns 30

Dakshin Restaurant in Chennai’s famous Crowne Plaza at Adyar Park, Chennai invited us to be a part of their 30thCelebration. #MacroTraveller was happy to be a part of this legendary restaurant that has seen various competition in recent times and has sustained to reach out to its loyal customers without any hindrances.

Dakshin which means south direction in Sanskrit is name of the restaurant, The name could not be more apt as this restaurant is situated in most states of South India such as Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Andra Pradesh, Telangana where it combines all the states traditional dishes and provides these tasty dishes to one’s palate. Started in the year 1989, Dakshin has quickly grown as a customer favourite restaurant which helped it to garner its name and expand its chain to other south Indian states.

I was very happy to be a part of their 30thanniversary where there were specially curated menus led by Executive Chef Deva. This included a special South Indian Thali that will have 30 lip-smacking dishes. The celebratory menu will include traditional thirst quenchers like Neer Moru, Para Saaru, starters like Nandu Puttu, Meen Moilee, main courses like Theeyal, Appam, Kal dosai, Veechu Parotta, vegetarian and non-vegetarian thali meals and desserts like elaneer payasam, Basundi etc, which tasted delicious.

Priced at a budget, these thalis were prepared as a celebration for 3-decade old restaurant chain. Dakshin restaurant serves both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes and they had an option for Veg Thali priced at `1999 and `2499 plus taxes which were lip-smacking. Chef Deva and other trained chefs at a restaurant had prepared nattu kozhi ammi masala and Chettinad aadu which are made up of 30 flavour packed ingredients which were a main USP for the celebratory event.

They also serve the best of the best alcohol which gives the customers a luxury vibe. All the dishes in Dakshin are served on banana leaves which gives its traditional look, the Iyer’s trolley in Dakshin is its main USP where the snacks are provided on a trolley. This fine dining restaurant is known for its coffee called Filter Kapi where it is served in a silver tumbler and is hand tossed in front of its customers.

Dakshin Restaurant draws inspiration from Temples of South India where as soon as you enter you will be noticing the temple architecture vibes, the menu at Dakshin reflects the grandeur of temple structure having gold, silk and mudras with the theme of Thanjavur Paintings and Idol. Here the guests are served with a grand feast in silver cutlery along with live music.
