Alcove Samora has been around since 1987 and is one of the best restaurants serving Indian food in Dar Es Salaam. A recently opened branch at the Sea cliff Hotel is more posh and probably pricier, but the food is equally good.
Caution however, if you are not used to spicy Indian foods, or are looking for authentic Chinese - this is not the place to be.
Highly recommend their Triple Schezwan and the Alcove special Paneer.
They serve their sizzler's differently, more like a sizzling plate to be shared amongst diners as opposed to a full dish for a single diner - but try it all the same.
A good place to entertain business teams for lunch, or family dinners during evenings.
Can be quite noisy at times, so if you expect reasonable calm - book a table accordingly in advance.
A website with the full menu online, exists for the Sea cliff branch, definitely maintained by the Hotel and not the restaurant.
The Samora branch could do with a little brightening up and renovation - an AC has been leaking there for over a year now.
Both branches accept Cards(Visa/MC) however may be prudent to confirm this if you are relying totally on card based payment.
