Too much expensive

The restaurant is in a very nice location and the interior is cool. But the price is extremely expensive, the price is almost 4 times the other restaurant. Me self, I will not visit it again.

Night stay in Muscat on a cruise so we decided to eat out after endless very mediocre Italian food on board. Passed by at lunch time and had a look and booked for the evening.Fantastic and attentive staff who obviously love what they do. We had three main courses between us (two) and all were exceptional...breads were fab and they... More

Certainly amongst the most expensive restaurants in Oman. RO 8.5 for 2 pots of tea for example! Probably the most expensive cup of tea I've had. It is not justified in charging such prices. More than the 5+ Star Hotels.

To the Kurkum Restaurant where there are three new items on the growing afternoon tea menus; Marco Polo Chocolate Cake and Halwa Tart and Jam Tart. These guys are always experimenting on new ways to tickle the tastebuds and boy have they done so this time. The tarts will have to wait for another day though. As always parking is... More

Kurkum is a great place to eat out near the Cornish. It's a bit more expensive then other restaurants in the area but the food was the best we've had in Oman so it's well worth it. The staff were attentive and even gave us some complimentary appetisers and dessert. The coconut fish curry was delicious! I would eat there... More

The restaurant is located a minute away from Muscat's Bazar (which is very expensive). The restaurant looks neat and smells good, bathroom is spotless. We were greeted with rose infused water and were given finger food aperitif, so good. We asked the waiter about his recommendation we ordered what he recommended, was delicious. The grilled Hamour fish was absolutely heavenly,... More

Dont let the modern white interior confuse you. The service was very good and the food was absolutely delicious. We had the Coconut Fish Curry, Butter Chicken, Chicken Biryani Rice, Coconut Rice and various breads. It was wonderful. Not a cheap meal but the portions were very generous. Upon arrival we were served a complimentary Rose infused mocktail and an... More

We were given a lovely welcome by this restaurant near the Souq in Mutrah with a rose water and mint drink and a tamarind flavoured savoury. We particularly enjoyed the Mutrah special sea food curry with a coconut and green mango sauce together with excellent roti bread. Another treat at the end of the meal, a serving of fruity Christmas... More

Food was average but over-priced. Decor is really very bland and simple. Everything is white but its not tasteful decor that you would expect from a restaurant that charges such prices.

A delicious meal was had here. Staff were so friendly and helpful, complimentary coffee and starter were an added bonus! Naan was the best I've ever tasted along with the Goan chicken curry.
