good food, friendly staff

Food is good, they bring food until you say you are full! they call it " sit down buffet". friendly, polite staff. expensive for people who don't eat much.

I Loved their Fish tikka. Had been there for Ramzan Buffet.. No doubt that they excel at what they need to be. Good ambiance, Worth for the money

Great quality of food always consistent & menu is more enticing & innovative compared to Mumtaz Mahal, I guess being a chain Restaurant they are able to maintain & deliver quality & choice. Probably the Best Kebabs served in Muscat Not one of the best location though but very nice ambiance & clean restaurant, friendly & warm staff

This is one of the best restaurants which I have visited in Muscat. You must go for their TGKF buffet, in which you will get a mix of unlimited Kababs and grilled items( chicken,mutton, seafood etc.), Biriyanis and some yummy desserts( the list is not an exhaustive one. You will get a lot more items than what I have mentioned... More
