I had visited Kurkum earlier and wrote a review and in continuation I would like to methodically state that this is grossly overprices Indian street food available in the lanes of Delhi , Mumbai and Punjab - packaged with a fake presentation of White and sold for premium prices. its just fleecing the unaware and tired tourists walking in after...

The place is pretty and near the marina. The staff were very nice and gave us complimentary drinks and starters. The main meal of butter chicken was average as they had used cheap thigh meat and spoiled the dish,also not enough chicken for the amount of sauce given. Very expensive,if you have the budget then worth a visit.otherwise you may... More

I am gonna review one of the biggest tourist traps in Muscat. My personal experience prompts me to write this as soon as I had the experience of this daylight robbery near the Muttrah Souq. Kurkum Restaurent is located near the Muttrah Souq and if you don't closely observe while passing , you miss it. Based on TripAdvisor reviews ,... More

Celebrated my birthday with my special someone in Kurkum. Romantic afternoon ambience perfect situated in the corniche area. Food is a marvel and price is just right. Service is prompt and was assisted very well. Thank you for making my day romantically unforgettable.

The restaurant is in a very nice location and the interior is cool. But the price is extremely expensive, the price is almost 4 times the other restaurant. Me self, I will not visit it again.

Passed by at lunch time and had a look and booked for the evening.Fantastic and attentive staff who obviously love what they do. We had three main courses between us (two) and all were exceptional...breads were fab and they... More

Certainly amongst the most expensive restaurants in Oman. RO 8.5 for 2 pots of tea for example! Probably the most expensive cup of tea I've had. It is not justified in charging such prices. More than the 5+ Star Hotels.

To the Kurkum Restaurant where there are three new items on the growing afternoon tea menus; Marco Polo Chocolate Cake and Halwa Tart and Jam Tart. These guys are always experimenting on new ways to tickle the tastebuds and boy have they done so this time. The tarts will have to wait for another day though. As always parking is... More

Kurkum is a great place to eat out near the Cornish. It's a bit more expensive then other restaurants in the area but the food was the best we've had in Oman so it's well worth it. The staff were attentive and even gave us some complimentary appetisers and dessert. The coconut fish curry was delicious! I would eat there... More
