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.

After a hot and hectic trip to the souq, we were in great need of refreshment and what a find we made. Situated only a few minutes away, we found this calm, cool and peaceful oasis! The interior was stylish, the food excellent and the service unobtrusive but very satisfactory. I can't wait to return for a second visit! Highly... More

On my second visit to Muscat my first port of call was Kurkum. I was keen to see whether the standard was as good as my first visit. It was terrific. Tasty and refined food, professional and friendly service, Charming ambiance. Well-done Kurkum.

I have tried a few restaurants in Muscat and by far the best is Kurkum. I found the rest disappointing. Kurkum offers delicious food, excellent service and delightful ambiance which rival any top restaurant in the world. I have read other people's reviews and cost has been mentioned a few times. Good quality delicious food does not come cheap and... More

I had stumbled upon this little gem on the side of Muttrah Corniche, few days back. The experience at Kurkum was one of the highlights of my long weekend during the Eid Al Adha holidays. Right from the ambience that captivates a first time customer to the tasteful food and the warmth of service would make you always come back... More
