“Delicious crispy corn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Crispy Corn, should be "must" for anyone visiting there - as a starter. The helpings are decent, timely service. Though a bit congested and poor on privacy but good enough for re-visit. Have gone there 4-5 times.

“Still going strong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I love that this restaurant is within the best hotel in Dar. Good Indian meal served in a nice setting, makes a change from the normal Dhaba style food available everywhere. The food is rich so I wouldn't recommend making this your regular Indian fix as there are plenty of places you can pick up a good Indian meal at half the price. Another point to remember is to book as this place gets busy at weekends especially. I would put it on an equal footing to Nawabi Khana nearby.

“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.
