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

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
