Visited here on our first night in Oman and wasn't disappointed. As it also functions as a shisha bar and doesn't serve alcohol there was a nice mix of locals plus ex-pats who are out for something approaching authentic Omani food. The layout and surroundings are spectacular and the food was first-rate and not expensive especially if you chose the... More

By far the best culinary experience so far and in a different league to the other great restaurants we have sampled in Muscat over the past 2 months. An extensive menu of food and drink makes perusing the menu lengthy but most certainly worthwhile, the menu contains photos and names of some of the Arabic dishes which we found very... More

Living in Muscat or anywhere within an hour's drive makes Kargeens Caffe a must hang-out favorite spot. The picture shown does not for a second show how quaint, romantic, and special this place is. The menu is huge and offers something delicious for everyone. The shisha ( hookah) smoke can get overwhelming if you stay indoors but the outside tables... More

This is the perfect place to bring your guests visiting from abroad if you live in Oman. The place is furnished Arabic style, with the waiters wearing uniforms inspired to the local costumes, but it is far from being just a folkloristic restaurant. The food is very good, you can choose among a variety of apetizers, main courses, grills, salads... More

One of the must go restaurants in Oman. Superb creative, comfortable open sit out area. They also have rooms with floor seating available to cater to large groups. The staff is really helpful to point out the delicacies in non-vegetarian & vegetarian food. Had a good experience.

KARGEEN is located in the madinat sultan Qaboos area called MSQ. It is one of the few places in muscat that offer outdoor seating and in a very traditional and quaint way. The decor is typical bedouin style with ground seating area surrounded with cushions. They also have an indoor area which is decorated in a very traditional way. Their... More

I peeped in the window to see what this place is like. OMG! I was so excited, that I couldn't wait to dine here. We ordered the Lamb Mandi, and that blew me off. Good to share between a couple. It's a bit pricey, but worth it. Can't wait to go there again!
