Caesars Dakshin Review – Kuwait

Caesars Dakshin Review – Kuwait


Dakshin Kuwait (6 of 13)I think Caesars is to the average Indian what IHop is to the American. The Caesars group has been in Kuwait since 1973 feeding our voracious appetites to our hearts content. Their confectionery has been ubiquitous at any family gathering and among most Indians, their 3 inch fluffy dough pizza is as popular as the snicker bar. I believe they presently have about 12 plus restaurants serving continental, South Indian, Persian and even Japanese cuisine. You can find out more on the other restaurantsDakshin Kuwait (13 of 13) HERE!

Dakshin, in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh serves authentic South Indian cuisine…., to be more specific, Kerala cuisine. Unlike many popular Indian restaurants they have not toned down the authentic flavors to cater to the public. Though we had been to this place earlier, this time it was to celebrate my cousins birthday and we were served a set menu.

Dakshin Kuwait (10 of 13)We were all served a welcome drink which was Fresh Lemon with Mint. Nothing more refreshing in the heat of August. The dash of mint with
lemon is a perfect marriage. For the appetizer we had the Podi Chopa which is fish fingers marinated with crushed spices fried and then sautéed in chef’s special sauce. This dish is native to Andhra. Though the fish in itself tasted good with the spices, thought the addition of a mint chutney  may have added an interesting flavor. Our Entrees included the Mix Grill Sizzler (Kd 3.000), Chicken Peshwari (Kd 2.500) and Bhuna Gosht (Kd 2.750). Though sizzler is a popular dish ordered by many in the restaurant, its not my cup of tea. The chicken and beef were succulent and tender, but nothing Indian or rich about the flavor. The Chicken Peshwari is basically chunks of chicken cooked with fresh coriander leaves,and yellow mustard gravy and the Bhuna gosht consist of tender pieces of lamb cooked with pounded masala in Punjabi style. If it was not for my expanding waist line I would go on with both these dishes for two more rounds 😀   The entrees were served with Raitha and plain Naan (0.250) which is the traditional Indian bread. Though we obviously did not pay for any of the dishes thought addition of the prices next to the dish will justify their ‘value for money’  😉
For the dessert we enjoyed their home made Kulfi and Gulab Jamun. The Kulfi was rich, creamy and delicious. The Gulab Jamun had a subtle flavor of ghee which I love. To simply state, I wouldn’t think twice about ordering these again.
Ratings – Ambiance –  6/10, Service -7/10, Menu – 7/10, Food – 7/10, Consistency – 7/10, Value for Money – 7/10

Overall –  A place for the common man. It’s all food minus the bling!
