Review on Dakhin

Glasgow's first genuine South Indian restaurant is located in the heart of the Merchant City. Inside, it looks the part, with a riot of 'hot' Far Eastern colours and artefacts combined with a cool ambience.

Dosas (thin, rice flour pancakes rolled up and stuffed with all manner of fillings) are one of the stars of the show, but the lengthy menu is a real eye-opener for those used to the standard offerings provided by most North Indian and Bangladeshi curry houses.

Don't be intimidated by the unfamiliar names, since helpful explanations are provided: 'lona esi putta gudgula' is batter-fried button mushrooms stuffed with malgaipuri chutney, 'erachi thenga varuval' is a lamb dish from Kerala cooked with fried coconut and South Indian spices in a thick sauce, while 'meen pulli kozhambu' comprises monkfish simmered in a spicy tamarind sauce from the province of Tamil Nadu.

Vegetables are refreshingly different, while desserts could include kulfi and 'syavige payasam' (vermicelli cooked in reduced milk with cardamom and garnished with sultanas). Two-course pre-theatre meals are available every day from 5.00-7.00pm.
