“Good Indian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The food and service in Alcove are good. The Indian dishes are good. The Chinese dishes are more "Indian Chinese' but delicious!! Service is good.
They do not have cocktails - would have been good.

“Good food but a little oily!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

A good selection of starters and main dishes. The food tends to be a little oily but overall tasty food.

“My favorite business lunch spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Whenever I am in Dar, I must go for business lunch with my associates and friends at least one time to the Alcove restaurant. My first time there was in 1991. Since then I never stopped going there. In the middle of the road it suffered a bit of mediocre period, but last time I was there, the place was full and people had to wait for seats, which speaks volumes about the healthy business they enjoy there now again. I am glad to see this happening. My favorite dishes are always prawns in different ways prepared, drum lollipops, sizzling dishes, Three Treasure starter and soups of course, plus garlic nan bread. Great atmosphere, air-conditioned place which helps a lot when you run away from steaming heat of Dar. Yeah, I will be back many times more there.

“Great second visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Visited this a second time - the food was once again tasty and service good. The thing I would recommend that the owners do is sort out the decor - its a bit dated now.
