Dakshin had its humble beginnings in June 2000 in Middletown, New Jersey. The Dakshin Group currently has 3 established locations, Dakshin Express, Dakshin Snack Bar at Desi Galaxy and Dakshin Indian Cuisine which is New Jersey's first South Indian Fine Dining Restaurant with Bar & Banquet facilities serving authentic North Indian, South Indian and Indo-Chinese cuisines. In Feb 2001, Dakshin with the leadership of Sateesh Dasari, an entrepreneur with a single motto of serving fine food with a true taste started Dakshin Snack Bar at Desi Galaxy serving pure South Indian Vegetarian snacks. With the blessings of Lord Venkateswara, Dakshin found its opportunity to serve the devotees by opening Dakshin Cafeteria in the temple premises in June 2001 and served the devotees until 15th June 2008. We hope and wish that we will get the oppurtunity to serve the devotees again in the future.
