Great Indian food on the historic corniche

Good service good food in a part of town that is only getting better. CHICKEN rashmi Kabab are amazing Bit pricey tho and tough place to find a parking spot. But worth it.

Excellent food in a really nice restaurant. Right on the front at Muttrah Welcome retreat from the madness of Muttrah Souq! Complimentary welcome drink and small extras make this a special place. Bit pricey compared to others in the area but we will definitely visit again next time we are shopped out in the Souq!

Had dropped in at the restaurant last week with friends for a quick lunch session. Service was great and quick. Ambience is homely and pleasant with a view towards the harbour. Would visit again.

I have been to this restaurant on many occasions!.... All I can say is that the food only gets better everytime I visit. A must try to all Indian cuisine lovers, and recently they've added an Oriental cuisine selection as well. Every course is an adventure, and every adventure is an exciting treat! Wonderful cosy ambiance with impeccable service! A... More

Having decided to eat on the corniche for iftar, the two of us walked in, attracted by the design. And truly, the atmosphere is nice and so is the setting. but I'm afraid it's stop right here. For starters we tried 2 salads, one with corn and coconut, which was ok and even original. Mine was tomato and cucumber with... More

A charming restaurant amidst the bustle of the seafront. Excellent food! Creative Indian food and courteous staff. Although not cheap it was worth the money and a treat!

Had to pass dessert as we were full. Samosa to share for a starter and two mains, one rice and one naan bread but we couldn't finish. Very close to the main souk entrance. Only 6 OMR from the Al Bustan Palace in a taxi. Total meal with water was 29 OMR. We were given a taster to start with... More
