My sister and I enjoyed a wonderful meal here. It is right near the souk and I highly recommend eating here if you want a comfortable and high quality meal. It is not a cheap place by Oman standards but the price for the quality of food is more than acceptable. The service was also excellent. I would most definetly... More

Took friends from overseas here as we were visiting the muttrah souq. Very nice Indian food. The dry lamb curry with coconut was particularly tasty plus they had a few more interesting dishes on the menu. Ok for vegetarians. Service was very good. Was expensive by muscat standards so would probably only go there if there was a reason to... More

One of my favourites in Muscat. Ambience, fabulous food and excellent service. Just keep trying different dishes and cannot pick a favourite. Well worth the trip to Matrah!

Good ambience, love the white surroundings, facing the Old Muscat port, and the corniche. Landed for lunch, would recommend the lamb vindaloo. It is cozy at the same time very chic.

We happened upon this little gem on our last day in Muscat, while looking for a place to lunch away from the tourist stops so near the souq. Pristine, white table cloths, interesting photos on the walls, an extensive and interesting menu, attentive service, and delicious food. Our only regret was partaking of so much lunch that we were unable... More

Thanks to Tripadvisor, we found this lovely restaurant with splendid view to the harbour and His Majesty's ship, nett the souk. The absolut white interior matched the remarkable friendly service. Slightly higher prices are based on excellent food. Everything is homemade, even the icecream. For the courtesy of the guests, some Chinese dishes are offered, but we recommend the Indian... More

KurKum has to be my most favourite place - great food, great decor and great service everytime. It really is tucked away in the corner, so easily missable.

Kurkum is located along the Corniche in Mutrah, within walking distance of the Souq. On a hot and humid day, this restaurant will soothe the weariest of travellers. Unusual for a curry restaurant, the decor is completely white! It is beautiful. The restaurant is small, but there are some nice booths that face the Corniche. We ordered Indian dishes, because...
