I first got to know Alcove 20 years ago when I worked in Dar and the restaurant was located on Samora Avenue. Since our last visit 4 years ago it has moved to a more remote street, at Haidery Plaza.

The food quality has improved much as compared to the time it started operation at City Center. Well built and managed. Service is good. Cost, a little bit high, but it is manageable.

I ate here four time during my week long stay at the Sea Cliff Hotel. The Indian food was awesome. They have a very large selection of Indian and Chinese meals and the meals I had were excellent and reasonably priced.

Have dined at their Sea Cliff outlet a couple of times in the past few months. Excellent fare in Indian and Indo Chinese cuisine . Impeccable service. Great ambience for people who like seating outdoors, though, they do have an air conditioned room too. Dont miss the succulent Tandoori prawns and flavorsome Rogan Gosht.
