About Dhakshin Indian Cuisine


It is not cliche' when you hear that your family has inspired you to open a restaurant.

Coming from a family of exceptional cooks, learning the traditional recipes ardently, and with abundant passion from an early age from elders in the family , I have attempted to bring those tastes and traditions to Houston via Dhakshin!

When growing up our homes always wafted the smell of delicious, mouth watering food from the simplest to a grand meal cooked with love being the main ingredient, and the only goal being to see happy fulfilling smiles on every face after the meal. This tradition has been followed by my grandmothers, mother and to the family I was married to.

This household tradition continues at Dhakshin with our mission to serve the best food, cooked with love, and to garner the appreciation of our customers.

At Dhakshin, we are all about traditional food that satisfies the taste buds and the soul. The delicacies that I have inherited from various sources from cooking experiences, travel, eating at restaurants from the roadside dhabas, street food to the best of restaurants, and from reading and watching about cooking all my life. This has truly imbibed and evolved me to what I am today. I take great pride that I am a self taught cook and love what I do and have never stopped learning. Anything and everything related to food. inspires me and I truly want to give back the best way I can to my customers.

We appreciate that our restaurant has been so well received and have made a very good standing and presence in the community with your continued support for over a decade.
