Dakshin Bhavan – Experience South India in Pune

Dakshin Bhavan, as the name suggests, is a place in Kharadi which serves authentic South Indian food. They also have some options for Chinese food on the menu. This self service place offers amazing food at reasonable rates. We were here for a tasting and Yogesh, the owner, gave us a lot of information about South Indian food and how the food here is different from other places.

What I Had

Karnataka Idli

People from every different region in the south use different ingredients to make their idlis. The one in Karnataka is a combination of rava and dal and is coarse than the regular idli we have at various places. This one is a must try with the delicious sambar.


Pesarattu Dosa

This was something I had never tried. This dosa had a stuffing of upma in it. An unusual but tasty combination.



Ghee Dosa

One of the most crispy and tasty ghee dosas I have tried. Tried the cheese ghee dosa as well which was equally good and loaded with cheese.


Dakshin Combo Meal

This combo comes with a dosa, an idli, wada, upma, sheera and is accompanied with sambar and chutney. The pineapple sheera is yummy and so is the upma.


Filter Coffee

How can you miss out on filter coffee at a place which serves authentic South Indian meals? Had a perfect strong filter coffee to end the meal.




All in all, Dakshin Bhavan is a good and inexpensive place to have a good South Indian meal.
