Dakshinapuram Vegetarian Restaurant Food Review

Featured post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Dakshinapuram, vegetarian fine dining restaurant located in Teynampet, Chennai celebrates South Indian specialties with an affordable pricing, good quality and justifiable quantity of dishes. We, at ChennaiFocus, were thrilled to try out the dishes at this restaurant which boasts of traditional dishes with a perfect South Indian touch.  Before we list out the dishes we had, kudos to the team, who churned us lip smacking dishes, the only drawback being our stomach which filled in fast. 😊

Drumstick soup
Crispy corn

The dishes we had include Tomato Dhaniya Soup and Murungakkai (Drumstick) soup,Crispy corn, Tapioca Crispy fries, Vazhaipoo 65, chilli gobi,  Apollo paneer, Avakkai Rice, Baby PotatoBiryani, Thenkasi Chilly Parotta, Malapoondu Kuzhambu, Kuzhi Paniyaram,  Benne dosai, Mushroom masala dosai, and indesserts, Falooda and a classic way to finish a South Indian meal – FilterCoffee.

Avakkaya Rice

The list of items is quite extensive but then, we just tasted 25% of what was in the menu. Avakkaya rice, the signature dish of Andhra cuisine, was exceptional,  could just not get myself to stop eating.

Vazhaipoo 65 and Tapioca fry

The Vazhaipoo 65 by the side, though it was a starter, loved having it with the rice for its crunchiness – a dish which demands intense labor,  full appreciation to have included it in the menu. Do not miss it.

Malaipoondu Kuzhambu

Steamed Rice with Malaipoondu kuzhambu and tapioca crunchy fry ( can also make it seppankizhangu fry) is another delectable combo you would not like to miss. We simply loved it.

Apolo Paneer and Chili Gobi

Apollo Paneer with a unique marinated spice that blended so well with the soft creamy succulent paneer is another highly recommended item.

Baby Potato Biriyani

We were a bit puzzled about the Baby Potato Biryani but for the first time, we had a biryani which relied on the baby potato and its choicest spices  to render its aroma without the overpowering spiciness. Absolutely classic dish.

Mushroom masala dosa
Tenkasi Chilli parota

On the tiffin side, thenkasi chilli parotta came with a crunchiness and let me tell you, the quantity does justice to the price, so be absolutely sure about the order before spelling it out. Nevertheless, with so many items in our tummy and also contentment, there was no heaviness that you get when we eat out in restaurants– A home style preparation for sure.

Filter coffee lovers, you will simply love the coffee served here, FILTER COFFEE indeed.

Do not miss the Live Counter where Kuzhi Paniyaram, neer dosa, Aapam get prepared in front of your eyes. Quite interesting.

Leaving the rest for you to taste it out, this was our dinner and we did come to know there are thali meals available for lunch – Dakshinapuram’s Quick Thali, Executive Thali and Rajabhojanam. Our next visit is going to be for the Rajabhojanam.

In the pursuit of different cuisines, Chennai has lost out on its signature restaurants serving authentic Vegetarian food. This realization set in when one of my friends who travelled from North India was asking me for recommendation for Vegetarian South Indian food. Being a food blogger, it was a struggle to identify a place which does not turn out to be too costly as they were a pack of 8 people and the place also serves quality food that we can call our own cuisine. This is another aspect that made the visit to this restaurant special.  

Menu Speciality: The curated menu keeps us wanting for more and given the items we have eaten; still there is no dearth of items we would like to try the next time we visit. And, the quality of the food is so good, we do not mind going for it all again. That is the biggest USP of this restaurant. 

Pricing: Affordable Pricing is another key factor.

Place for group parties of 25-30 people :The restaurant is designed to accommodate groups of 25 people and done in such a way that the area can be partitioned to give you the party time and privacy without disturbing  other diners.

Brand Savera:  Another excitement about Dakshinapuram restaurant is that it comes from the home of Savera Restaurants known for their high-quality offerings such as Amaravathi, Malgudi, Go South, Kaaraikudi, and Brew Room.
