This restaurant is our choice whenever we cannot make up our minds on where to go as a family. We think they might have the best butter chicken in all of Dar!

Food is good....sizzling prawns, chicken, chicken madras, naan all very tasty. I'm knocking one star off for the service. It's a bit slow and it gets a bit annoying having to keep on reminding them about drinks orders. Definitely worth a visit on the whole.

Great setting and food is excellent. Try the platters which are huge and super tasty. Service is warm and friend,y and efficient though kitchen tends to be slow but thorough. Relaxing. And enjoyable experience so make sure you take the time to savour the whole experience but especially the food.

The alcove restaurant has a wide selection of veg and non veg foods. Nonetheless, the service was very poor. Our food came after 45 minutes and that was only the appetisers. One of the experienced waitresses dropped mango juice on my dad's shirt and trousers. The manager only said sorry and finished the issue and did not even care to... More

I visited Vagator for one night while in Goa and stayed at Alcove resorts. We ate at this restaurant. It has a breathtaking view of the sea. The King prawns were delicious and the garlic butter was the BEST I've ever had! The brownie was also delirious. The service was good and I would recommend this place.

You can have the restricted view of Indian ocean and you want to have more clear view..but only residents are allowed to go there...not good. But the food is really good there. I would love to go there again.

Located at the sea cliff hotel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. A quick taxi ride away from Double Tree by Hilton. The menu is indian/chinese fusion cuisine and is a wide variety. Had the clear veg soup as starter and the paneer tikka masala as a main. Definitely enjoyed the meal. Variety of non-alcoholic drinks is minimum, unfortunately. Overall a... More

I went for a business dinner with a few work colleagues in May 2016. We sat outside and the warm evening sea breeze was pleasant. For starters, we ordered the vegetarian platter to share. We then looked at the menu to decide on our main courses. We ordered fish masala, lamb rogan josh, chicken tikka masala and Tarka daal. We... More

I have been here multiple times. The food is amazing, you can never go wrong with any meal you order here. Best time if you love music would be on Sunday night where they have a live music band by "Akil and party " you can also choose to sit on the terrace or indoors.
