I visited some time ago, and returned in August. The food is fantastic. Rich, light and full of flavour. It's also completely Gluten Free. The staff were really kind and service was brilliant. Couldn't recommend more.

Yes children are welcome. I'd imagine if you phoned the Restaurant Manager before your visit, he or she would arrange something for you. They are most helpful and very friendly.

Established in 2004, Dakhin was the first authentic South Indian restaurant in Scotland. Set amidst the centre of Glasgow's Merchant city district, it offers diners a vast array of speciality dishes from India's southern region. We're talking about authentic recipes using fresh natural ingredients from award-winning chefs. Food worth talking about, and a warm dining experience to savour. Dakhin proudly features within the Michelin Guide and comes highly recommended by many food critics. If you are looking for something different from your run of the mill Indian restaurant then you'd best be sure not to miss out.
