Awesome taste and good ambience to enjoy dinner with your loved ones. Achari chicken and Seekh Kaba is mouth watering! Very reasonably priced. One thing to note they have shifted to city mall food court and restaurant is no more in Pugh road

Visited Red Onion restaurant located on the top floor (food court) at the City Mall in Daressalaam city centre. The restaurant is quite big with nice sitting arrangement, it is very clean and their services are good. I ordered chicken sizzler which was served in about 20 minutes time and it was very delicious.

I went here as it was near my hotel (Ramada Encore). Literally five minutes walk away. It's in a small shopping mall, on the top floor and is now called The Alcove. I was the first person in the restaurant as it was quite early evening, but quite a lot more people turned up soon afterwards. I was greeted warmly... More

Good Indian food at this place. A bit noisy close to the road, but the food makes up for that :-) Inside a small shopping mall. Good location.

Just to inform it has been shifted to Nyerere Road, adjoining DTB and CRDB, and Quality Plaza. Alcove has taken its place in town area. The food quality of Red Onion is as good as it was earlier, no change.
