Indore Rocks Review

Chef's Alcove, a family-run multi-cuisine delicatessen (deli) serving a wide variety of very fresh food & beverages in many cuisines, is easily one of Indore's best restaurants !! 

It used to be located on the outskirts of Indore, on a hillock, in a rustic and very beautiful, log-hut kind setting !! However, it has shifted to the heart of the city, since February 2020 !! However, the deliciousness and the authenticity of the food remains just the same !! Like a true and authentic deli, food is made fresh, upon order, and the menu also changes frequently !! 

This multi-cuisine deli offers vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes from Italian, Mediterranean, British, French, Swiss, Moroccan, Egyptian, Mexican, American, Thai and Indian cuisines !! There is a large range of desserts and non-alcoholic beverages (cold and hot) too !! It used to be open only for dinner in its earlier location but is now open all day !! It has a self-service concept, and has a capacity to seat around 60-70 people at a time !! The owner's lineage as a chef at the great Taj Mahal Palace hotel's (Mumbai) prestigious The Chambers club adds a lot of value as he understands the most authentic cooking, of almost all major cuisines around the world !!

It Rocks !!

 "Best open air continental restaurant"
When it comes to continental food at the outskirts of Indore, the only place which comes in mind without any second thought is Chef's alcove restaurant! Menu spreads with Indian food to Chinese, American, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Lebanese, German and Swiss dishes as well. No doubt, food is scrumptious. Open kitchen, decent ambiance, open air sitting and a restaurant in the woods are its irresistible add-ons!!
