We came here on our first night in Muscat and it didn't let us down - delicious Omani food, great atmosphere, very friendly staff. Might be worth booking if you want to go as many of the tables we wanted to sit in in the nicest parts of the outdoor area were booked.

Kargeens is a huge and very busy restaurant with a large outdoor seating area. The ambience is very pleasant, ethnic and relaxed. This is not a restaurant you come to in a hurry, or when you are not ravenously hungry. The restaurant has a nice selection of cocktails - the pinacolada served in a coconut shell was lovely. Omani bread... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended this place. It was lovely! An amazing authentic ambience and traditional setting. We sat on one of the majlis areas and ate shuwa and mandi. The food was delicious. The service was good and we were very happy. It's family friendly and a real gem! The only observation is - we had difficulty finding... More

My first time in Kargeen dates to 2003. Long time for sure. I returned now, 11 years after and I still find it a perfect place to have dinner with friends, enjoying the amazing cosy arabian atmosphere of the place, with the lovely square laid tables where you can eat on the "floor", seating on those "majlis" style pilows. Here... More

KARGEEN is a very nice restaurant and cafe, the food is very clean and tasty and no wonder because we always see the owner around and taking care of every single detail. The decoration is fantastic and they serve the best hubly bubbly in Oman

The restaurant was recommended for Omani by a receptionist at our hotel. The setting in a courtyard was lovely. It was a lot bigger than we expected and was extremely busy (it was a Saturday night). I think there was a cruise ship in with a meal organised here. The menu is huge with all manor of dishes from around... More
