Best Persian food in Muscat!

I've been there yesterday with two of my friends, from my experience it is one of the best Persian restaurants in Muscat with a really nice view and welcoming staff.

I am a fan of Persian food and it's the best in the country, one of the best I've been in the countries I visited. I will go there anytime in the future when I can make it!

Based on the wonderful terrace of the hotel and next door to the excellent Italian and fun bar/pub this one was not really my cup of tea. Service was fine as expected but the food itself was not to my liking; rather sweet main courses ; just a personal preference as I am sure it's good food if it's your... More

A friend and I had dinner at this place this week, the atmosphere is very nice, the bread terrific, the food is extremely good Persian cuisine, I can't fault them for anything to be honest. The prices are surprisingly very fair, we had a very good bottle of wine for about OMR20 and the whole meal cost about double that,... More

We ate at this restaurant twice during our hoilday and enjoyed both meals - trying things we had never had before - delicious salads, grilled meats and even a type of ice cream that was delicious! We would have had more meals here during our stay of 2 weeks but I have to admit we were bowled over by another... More

Iranian food made for people who don't know what Iranian food is, if you've ever tried Iranian food or know remotely anything about it, you'll know this utter garbage, the staff themselves couldn't understand what kinda of food they where serving or why it was bad, a 2 star hotel with a nice view
