Slow yet worth the wait. Alcove have maintained their standards over the years, taste of each dish comes with a twist yet leaves your mouth watered! I'd would also recommend Alcove in city Haidery plaza

This restaurant is our choice whenever we cannot make up our minds on where to go as a family. We think they might have the best butter chicken in all of Dar!
