Glasgow loves a curry and there’s certainly no shortage of places to indulge your spice cravings in the city but Dakhin has made a name for itself as something a bit different.

Not immediately obvious when walking down the busy Candleriggs it’s well worth seeking out.  Located upstairs it looks out over the City Halls and Old Fruitmarket.  The venue is spacious and stylishly decorated to create a cool Indian cafe feeling.  Plants hang from the ceiling and retro Bollywood posters adorn the walls.  Heavy menus and linen napkins add a layer of quality to the trendy vibe and the tables are spaced out enough that even when it’s busy it never feels crowded.

The restaurant specialises in authentic South Indian food, which is quite different from the typical curry you might get elsewhere.  Main dishes feature fresh and delicate flavours, although if you like heat you won’t be disappointed.  Vegetarians are extremely well catered for, the vegetarian section is at least as extensive and well thought out as the meatier parts of the menu.  They also do some fantastic seafood. There’s no wheat on the menu (great for coeliacs), instead you’ll find delicious and interesting breads and pancakes made of rice and lentils.  The dosas (thin crepes made of a batter of rice and lentils) are an absolute must try.  A vegetable filled dosa makes an interesting side dish or the spectacular paper dosa is great to share.

The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and are more than happy to give you some advice on what to order or encourage you to try something new if you’re up for that.  They really know their food so if you’re stuck between a couple of choices definitely ask them what they recommend.

For unique Indian food in fresh surroundings don’t miss Dakhin.
