reveilles were in the mood for Indian food last night, so we tried Dakshin in Framingham. (For some reason, they seem to have two webpages. Here is the other one.)
When we were walking from our car to the restaurant, I could smell the food from the other side of the street. I also noticed several Indian couples walking into the restaurant. Both of these signs led me to believe we were in for a good meal and I was right!
For an appetizer, we had vegetable samosas. In texture these were similar to other samosas I've had, but they were far superior as far as taste went. The samosas had spice mixed into the filling which gave them some heat but was not overpowering. For dinner, reveilles had lamb korma and I had chicken tikka dosa. I had never had a dosa before and decided to try one. I can only describe it as a really big, very thin crepe, which was wrapped around chicken tikka, onions, and peppers. As with the samosas, the entrees were well balanced: spicy, but not overpowering. They had enough heat to be pleasantly spicy, but they were not painful. We ordered a garlic naan to go with our meal, which had enough garlic on it to make me happy. While not important to us, all of their meats are certified halal.
The only negative thing was they did not do a good job of packing our leftovers. They packed the korma in the same container as the dosa, so the crepe-like portion of the dosa was soggy from the sauce from the korma by the time we got home. They put some of the side sauces in the same container as the rice, but not sealed in anything, so they got onto the rice during transit.
Still, the food was excellent and I'm sure we will be going back to Dakshin in the future. When we do, I will probably order from the Indian-Chinese fusion section of the menu now that I know the quality of their food.
