If you do not mind splashing out then the Shiraz is the place to eat, it's speciality oven bread cooked before you is a delight and they do not mind giving more.... The food is great quality and priced accordingly... We go there for our special treat. Service can not be faulted... Great.

Very nice interiors and this is the kind of location that you would hold business dinners or host your clients in. Not really a family restaurant. The food and service was excellent. Worth visiting.

I was taken to this restaurant by clients for a business lunch, and the views really are beautiful! I think we had some kind of set menu, and the starters were absolutely delicious - amazing dips and super-fresh bread to scoop them up with. Yum. I wasn't all that bowled over by the main course though - a variety of... More

We've lived in Muscat for nearly two years and for some reason have never been to this restaurant,,,,,,can't really explain why. Well we went there this week by fluke as Left Bank had no power. What a delight it was. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and explained by the perfect waiter. He was attentive but not over the top,... More

Shiraz restaurant, I think one of the few Persian ones in Oman, is situated inside the Crown Plaza Hotel. If you can, and if the season permits, do choose a table on the terrace, overlooking the pool and the sea. The sunset will do the rest. Fantastic food, very well presented; the service is more than smiling and kind. Alcohol... More

We were indoors so I can see that it would be a much more interesting experience at an outside table. The complimentary starting salad was good and the bread was fresh--although it was more like a conventional pitta than the bread I've had in other Iranian places. The main courses were substantial but nothing special that we could see. Service... More
