Great tasting Indian food but unfortunately had an upset stomach thanks to this place for the rest of my trip in Dar Es Salaam.

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.
