The restaurant is located on top of a hill, it has a brilliant view of the city and the lights. Its very elegant. It serves authentic Indian sumptuous food. The qawali music played can be annoying but the service is excellent. I enjoyed their BBQ buffet served on the terrace during the winter.

I have been eating here for years when I visit Muscat - its becoming a tradition !! its an upmarket place by Indian Restaurant standards but the food is good, solid flavorsome stuff and its spotlessly clean. Great value for money too No need to book although its always busy. Give it a try !35

We found this a perfectly acceptable Indian restaurant and disagree with some of the comments made by other reviewers who didn't like the Poppadoms! Good selection of wine and beer - restaurant had plenty of Indian diners (always a good sign). Lots of choice for meat eaters and vegetarians. We enjoyed our two dinners. If you are hoping for high... More

Very good Indian. Starter and main portions huge- recommend sharing. On hill overlooking city. Crowd a mix of locals and visitors. Good night away from hotels. 1/3price of hotel dining.

What a complete disappointment - you'd do better with an average take-away. Straight out of the 70's style of 'Indian' with the lurid carpet to match. An Indian restaurant that resorts to supermarket grill-your-own packeted popadams cannot be trusted to deliver serious Indian fare. After the popadams we decided to forego a starter and had just a main course -... More

We treated ourselves to Mumtaz Mahal on our last night in Muscat - and it was a fantastic experience. We've been travelling to India for the last 10 years and can honestly say this was the most authentic dhal markhani outside of Madhya Pradesh! The restaurant is charming in every detail and the service is exceptional. Henry thoroughly deserves his... More

The venue and service is great, but we found the food to be pretty bland. It's worth a visit just to get away from the hotel and isn't that expensive.

Great location perched on the hill and well illuminated. Inside is OK but I've always found the food and service good, and the prices reasonable for Muscat. Nice Indian that we visit regularly.

We ate outside and had the fixed price vegetarian tandoor meal. We sat outside in the balmy weather and waited while course after course arrived. We were basically given tons of grilled, tandoori vegetables and paneer. We had a gobi (cauliflower) overdose, though, and I'm not sure if I could have more gobi to this day. The lentils and rice...
