We went as a family of 8, so we had a 10mim wait, but it was worth it! Going on a recommendation, first we chose the fish, which was then grilled, with ample bread, lamb and chicken dishes this was perfect! Make sure you don't overdo the bread, because it leaves you stuffed for the fish, which you can have... More

This goes right on top of my "Restaurants with horrid bathrooms" list. No paper , No soap, Bad smell. (What do the employees wash their hands with?). Trash can filled to the top with who knows what. Floor was wet, slippery and was discolored with mildew... The place itself is dirty and stinky. On top of that, the service staff... More

The Turkish House Restaurant is by far the best value for seafood in Muscat. For the best experience call ahead for a reservation as it tends to get very busy. If you arrive prior to 7PM it is typically quite. Go for the grilled hamour (grouper) and don't forget the Arabic appetizer platter with the fresh hot bread from the... More

This is the only place in Muscat where you walk in and know the owners and staff appreciate your patronage. The great service and fresh fish are only a few reasons to visit Turkish house frequently. We always start with the mixed mezza served with fresh bread straight out of the oven and a lemon mint drink. The grilled seafood... More

I celebrate here every time. I come here even when there's nothing to celebrate about. I used to work in a hotel in Al Khuwair. Probably a 20-min walk or so (I love walking, so I don't really mind). When guests ask me where was a nice place to eat at, and I don't care if they say seafood or... More

I was by myself on a biz trip, literally for one day. After arriving at the Ibis, I decided to check out what restaurants were nearby. Turkish House seemed to have some great reviews, so I decided to go along - literally 10 minutes walk. The restaurant was heaving and to seat just one was a bit of a sacrifice... More

After reading other reviews, we decided we had to try Turkish House for seafood in Muscat. We were not disappointed. We ordered Turkish salads and bread/hummus. With so much salad and bread, we hardly had room for the main course - a huge, grilled hummor for two. The fish was very fresh and tasty. We concluded the meal with a... More

They serve fresh fish and this is one of our regular hangouts. Frequented by Omani's, expats and tourists. I have met some friends who have travelled over an hour to have a good meal so there must be something special. Grilled shrimps are the best, but so is their whole grilled fish for two or more people. One thing to... More

The food is the freshest you'll find. Fish and prawns straight from the ocean and cooked to perfection. Wonderful mezze, grills, breads and juices. If only it were licensed, you could imagine yourself on the Mediterranean. Lovely, highly professional staff and very reasonably priced too. Definitely the best of its kind in Muscat.

I came here several times to savour their seafood but yesterday I tried the lamb chop. Succulent meat, perfect marination, great portion, I cleaned the meat till nothing left on the bones! Don't forget to order the hummous too. They have one of the best hummous in town.
