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

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
