“Pretty good but pricy for what it is”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Not a bad spot for a good meal, albeit very dated and hardly a 'classy' feel. Food waqs pretty good - but at USD 60 odd for a pretty basic meal and the cheapest wine, it was an expensive meal for 2 givebn some of the alternatives.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Dinner for two, no alcohol - $60. If you are accustomed to very good Indian food, this will be average. Not bad, but nothing to remember. Surrounding are OK -- at night in the dark you will not benefit from the Seacliff's surroundings; inside of the restaurant is rather sterile.

“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.
