“Very Good - but the Direction on Trip Advisor is wrong”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We went there last night and had a lovely time. Yes, the food, etc is more expensive - but you get such a beautiful view that you are really paying for the location. I found the food delicious and the service good. HOWEVER - please note that the address on Trip Advisor is wrong. It's in the Sea Cliff complex - NOT Samora Ave (which is in the city centre). We went looking for it in the wrong place and it's not a spot where you want to look lost at night!

“Good Place for Foodies”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

It's nice place for family dine out. The food is good. Clean and good service. Might sound bit expensive. But you are paying for quality and tasty food. So, it doesn't matter.

“Yummy food!”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

I loved how good their Chinese cuisine were. The menu had quite a variety and recommendations by the waitress were good. It's really a top class restaurant and you can have insane of amount of food with cocktails for equivalent of 25GBP per person. It helps that it's located in the gorgeous Sea Cliff complex. As it is well known in Dar it's very easy to get to. The concierge can order taxi for you.

“Consistent quality of food...”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

its one of the best indian rest in town with consistency of food quality. Service is good and normally it takes 20min to prepare ur food. Atmosphere is good and serves alcohol too. Its in town and parking space available. Better to make reservation during weekends as its always full. Approx $18/per person. I think this is the best place for indian food.
