I have visited Oman several times in the past few years and I always make time for a meal at Kurkum. The restaurant itself is so pretty and in a great spot (near the Marina), however, it's the food that makes sure I come back every time! The restaurant serves genuinely delicious and unpretentious Indian food. I can never quite... More

Kurkum is one of the best restaurants in Muskat and can only be describes as an outstanding find, well worth returning to whenever you can. Restaurants can benefit from their situation and the Kurkum certainly does. On the Corniche, just along from the Muttrah Fort, and Ghalya’s Museum of Modern Art, and close to the Muttrah souk, it overlooks the... More

I had visited Kurkum earlier and wrote a review and in continuation I would like to methodically state that this is grossly overprices Indian street food available in the lanes of Delhi , Mumbai and Punjab - packaged with a fake presentation of White and sold for premium prices. its just fleecing the unaware and tired tourists walking in after...

Having visited Muttrah Souq with my parents one evening whilst they were visiting, we were looking around for somewhere to eat and were captivated by the attractive setting of Kurkum. The menu was a little more expensive than we had intended to dine from, but the staff are so charming and the ambience inside so lovely that we decided to... More

The place is pretty and near the marina. The staff were very nice and gave us complimentary drinks and starters. The main meal of butter chicken was average as they had used cheap thigh meat and spoiled the dish,also not enough chicken for the amount of sauce given. Very expensive,if you have the budget then worth a visit.otherwise you may... More

I am gonna review one of the biggest tourist traps in Muscat. My personal experience prompts me to write this as soon as I had the experience of this daylight robbery near the Muttrah Souq. Kurkum Restaurent is located near the Muttrah Souq and if you don't closely observe while passing , you miss it. Based on TripAdvisor reviews ,... More

Celebrated my birthday with my special someone in Kurkum. Romantic afternoon ambience perfect situated in the corniche area. Food is a marvel and price is just right. Service is prompt and was assisted very well. Thank you for making my day romantically unforgettable.

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.
