With a friend we went back to the Kurkum the other day. As well as the complementary welcome drink and the amuse bouche after our meal we were treated to a complementary dessert of Christmas Pudding ice cream. Wow! If you enjoy the full flaming Christmas Pudding experience get there fast while stocks' last! Sure the parking's bad, and it's... More

I walked in famished and the waiter asked me to sit in the corner. I was alone, but the restaurant was completely empty. I asked him not to tell me where to sit, and then proceeded to look through the menu. While doing so, I asked of the wifi password and this rude ""gentleman"" said "Order first then we will... More

We stopped here after an evening of shopping at the Mattrah souk. I noticed it while walking down to the souk and we went in because we could not be bothered driving down elsewhere for a meal. We were treated to a rose flavoured welcome drink, which was quite nice. After that we were each given a complimentary appetizer of... More

If you want proper Indian food that has good quality in it then Kurkum is should be your first choice. They also have a very nice Chinese menu, serving delicious Chicken and lettuce wrap, one of the best dishes I have had so far.

It's difficult to define Kurkum. Restaurant is small, more or less at the end of Mutrah corniche. The white dominates the interiors. Menu is ok, indian style. Food is great, I cannot say it isn't. However, the bill is quite high considering the position, the type of food, the service and missing license for spirits. For two persons, with two... More

The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere and is well maintained; its total white appearance makes it look different from most Indian restaurants I've visited in the region, but unfortunately that's about it; although it presents itself as a fine dining restaurants, there are several reasons why it isn't: the staff is friendly and welcoming (a shame that they I...
