ABSOLUTE WORST! 7/4/2010

Sadly, this place has really gone down the tubes since changing from PONGAL. It was once a neighborhood favorite of my wife and I. As for the food, I can no longer comment on it since it never arrived. The first sign of trouble was a ""waitress"" who instantly reminded me of the Lisa Kudlow character on the TV sitcom ""Mad About You"". First, she didn't bother to write down our order. Second, after 25 minutes of watching other people get their food, she came back to our table to ask us again what we ordered, offering some lame lie about a ""computer crash"" in a restaurant of only about 12-15 tables. Obviously, the other diners were not affected! The whole experience was an insult. If I could rate Dakshin II with NO STARS, I would. We left and went down the street where we were treated and served professionally with great service and food. Cons: Worst service EVER more

First Glatt Kosher Indian in Manhattan: Winner 3/3/2010

My husband and I sampled Dakshin II's food lst weekend and are so glad that the owners decided to go Kosher! As I work with many Indian people, I've always wanted to experience the rich tastes and spices that the world is always raving about. But there was never before a Kosher Indian place in the city. It was my first time eating this sort of food, but I thouroughly enjoyed each dish that I had. Its like nothing I've had before, but my tastebuds don't mind at all. The food is fresh, creamy, and rich. The staff is super descriptive and their recommmendations are spot on. I had the Chicken Tikka Masala and it was so filling and hearty; we were even able to take some home for later. The garlic naan bread smells so wholesome and fresh and the little chutney sauces pack their own delicious punches. I recommend this to everyone who is looking for a new neighborhood favorite! Pros: Glatt Kosher, large portions, exotic decor more

Glatt Kosher!!! 2/19/2010

The prices are cheap, the food is abundant, and the service is great! I can't wait to take my family again for dinner! They have a full bar, I can take my grandparents since its Kosher and we all had a blast! Highly recommended. Pros: First ever Indian restaurant that is Glatt Kosher! more

Sel et Poivre nor salty nor peppery 10/24/2009

I am french and went to Sel et Poivre convinced that I was going to have a nice dinner. The ""Escargots"" were an insult to this delicious appetizer. As for their ""Couscous Royal""...it converted me to a republican. Terriiiible! My advice for anyone , if you want to try thisd restaurant.... froget about the two specialties mentioned above. What a pity! Pros: Quiet and Cons: Not the best of french cuisine more

Best Deal in Town 8/16/2009

I was a little skeptical when I read that Dakshin's buffet was only $7.99. So much so that I called the wait staff to make sure it wasn't a misprint on the menu. Dakshin's buffet is a bargain compared to the neighboring restaurants like Dawat and Chola, where a buffet usually costs me 6 bucks more. The Dakshin buffet has all of my favorites like tandoori chicken and a creamy chicken tikka masala. Their lamb roganjosh is like no other. It's a very filling, tasty, and varied buffet and I think more people should take advantage of it, especially for the price that its offered at. Another reason I love it: if you go on the weekend, they serve freshly made Dosas as part of the buffet. The dosas are crisp and come with a very thick sambar and cocunut chutney. Definitly give this restaurant a try, especially on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon if you want to take advantage of the fabulous dosas! Pros: inexpensive, dosas on the weekends more

New Favorite 8/3/2009

Dakshin had me from the moment I heard the Beatles playing on the speakers. The restaurant's atmosphere is tres cool, with abstract indian paintings covering its red walls. As a veteran indian foodie, eating at Dakshin was definitly a refreshing experience. The food was way different from the generic fare that you get at all the other indian restaurants. The prices are very reasonable considering the location its in (making me feel less guilty when deciding to eat out). Everytime I'm at Dakshin, I try a new entree, and I assure you I am rarely ever dissappointed. The tastes and spices and variety of the dishes make me want to come back time and again. Pros: great garlic naan, great service, unique dishes more
