I love this place for the weekend tamilnadu buffet... Mango ice is awesome... Also, it is cheaper than Masala (which is lot like andra or hyderabadi style)

Their Naperville location staff is so rude and they misbehave. Unprofessional staff and disgusting food. Won't go there again.

Dakshin is one of the few Indian restaurants in Naperville. We went on a Friday evening when they have a buffet. The food is a mix of North Indian and South Indian dishes which were OK but none outstanding. The South Indian dishes were not very good. Sambhar, a lentil based soup was actually tasteless. "Mango buttermilk sambhar", an essentially... More

My husband and I love Indian food and have been here several times. The flavor and quality is not as good as our favorite Indian Restaurant in Lombard, but it's closer to where we live so we go here sometimes out of convenience. After our meal on Sunday, we won't be back. One of the dishes we ordered was Lamb... More

We came here hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but there was nothing impressive about this place. It seems more like a hobby to the owner than a business. It seems like their volume is so low that the ingredients are not the freshest. Only one person was working when we visited and there were no other customers.

My experience with Dakshin is Stupendous. I have been coming here 5 yrs and ordering food for our parties. They are excellent. Taste is really the authentic south indian food. Its a value for money. I love the Friday evening buffet. Just love this place.

This restaurant is a classic example of how good can become slowly bad. Their buffet was value formoney but with time they haven't changed their old cutlery, menu for Buffett, seats, dark lighting etc , this place needs a complete revamp to survive .

My family and I have been living in America for just under 3 years. In England we always loved to eat out at Indian Restaurants and have always adored the food, but since moving here we have never found an Indian Restaurant we have enjoyed UNTIL NOW. Wow, we really were amazed with this meal. The restaurant is situated in... More
