Good ambience, love the white surroundings, facing the Old Muscat port, and the corniche. Landed for lunch, would recommend the lamb vindaloo. It is cozy at the same time very chic.

We happened upon this little gem on our last day in Muscat, while looking for a place to lunch away from the tourist stops so near the souq. Pristine, white table cloths, interesting photos on the walls, an extensive and interesting menu, attentive service, and delicious food. Our only regret was partaking of so much lunch that we were unable... More

Thanks to Tripadvisor, we found this lovely restaurant with splendid view to the harbour and His Majesty's ship, nett the souk. The absolut white interior matched the remarkable friendly service. Slightly higher prices are based on excellent food. Everything is homemade, even the icecream. For the courtesy of the guests, some Chinese dishes are offered, but we recommend the Indian... More

KurKum has to be my most favourite place - great food, great decor and great service everytime. It really is tucked away in the corner, so easily missable. I love the ambience of this fantastic restaurant and relish each dish that I have when I go there. Was there the other night and the staff were so kind and brought... More

Kurkum is located along the Corniche in Mutrah, within walking distance of the Souq. On a hot and humid day, this restaurant will soothe the weariest of travellers. Unusual for a curry restaurant, the decor is completely white! It is beautiful. The restaurant is small, but there are some nice booths that face the Corniche. We ordered Indian dishes, because...

My husband had been here on a previous visit and raved about it. I am really fussy about Indian / Pakistani food so, ever the sceptic was not expecting much. The decor was really nice, balked a bit at the prices but I had been pre warned we had agreed to just order what we fancied. The food was sooooooo... More

Sitting outside in the evening looking across the harbour at his Majesty's royal yacht, excellent food and drink combined with exemplary hospitality! A level above the other offerings available in the area....
