We were in the mood for some Chinese fare so gave Alcove a try. To start, there were plenty of Indians & Asians dining on Sunday night, so that is always a good sign. We ordered hot & sour soups, chicken lollipops, sweet & sour prawns, mongolian chicken, alcove fried rice, and haka noodles. They ended up bringing mongolian prawns instead of chicken but were apologetic. Overall the dishes were tasty and fresh and there were plenty of them. There was a decent amount of MSG in the prawn dishes, more than I'm used to in the states, but not to the point where they were bad. Overall a solid experience and we would definitely go back. Price was moderate.

The ALCOVE has since some months a branch at the "Seaccliff Hotel" which I haven't visited yet. My report is about the one downtown on Samora Ave. There is a big variety of vegetarian and "carnivore" starters and main courses available. There is a huge chinese menue as well. As all food is freshly prepared one has to be a bit patient, especially when dining in a large group. for me it is number 1 or 2 Indian restaurant in DAr. Very good value for money although a bit high prized! I'd patronize it more often, if not for the location. Downtown DAr is almost "deserted" after 6pm!
