I visited Vagator for one night while in Goa and stayed at Alcove resorts. We ate at this restaurant. It has a breathtaking view of the sea. The King prawns were delicious and the garlic butter was the BEST I've ever had! The brownie was also delirious. The service was good and I would recommend this place.

You can have the restricted view of Indian ocean and you want to have more clear view..but only residents are allowed to go there...not good. But the food is really good there. I would love to go there again.

Located at the sea cliff hotel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. A quick taxi ride away from Double Tree by Hilton. The menu is indian/chinese fusion cuisine and is a wide variety. Had the clear veg soup as starter and the paneer tikka masala as a main. Definitely enjoyed the meal. Variety of non-alcoholic drinks is minimum, unfortunately. Overall a... More

I went for a business dinner with a few work colleagues in May 2016. We sat outside and the warm evening sea breeze was pleasant. For starters, we ordered the vegetarian platter to share. We then looked at the menu to decide on our main courses. We ordered fish masala, lamb rogan josh, chicken tikka masala and Tarka daal. We... More

I have been here multiple times. The food is amazing, you can never go wrong with any meal you order here. Best time if you love music would be on Sunday night where they have a live music band by "Akil and party " you can also choose to sit on the terrace or indoors.

The place has good choice of food especially Indian cuisine....You can opt to sit out or inside...both equally good...Service is on the dot and with a smile. The food doesn't take long to appear after ordering...which is great in this part of the world!....Overall satisfied with our dining experience.Good place for a quiet dinner or an informal interview!

I had been here for a business meeting as it was expected to be a quiet and a nice place for discussion over lunch. Yes it was very quiet, no crowd, but lots of tables and empty chairs occupying the space, a couple of staff, menu with expensive price tags, delayed service and sub standard food. So if you connect... More
