Upon entering you feel like you have found a secret market place with a bread oven stall, a shisha stall and surrounding little kitchens. This leads to pretty covered gardens surrounded by a series of restaurants/rooms. My husband had the most terrific lamb shank curry meal that he was waxing lyrical about all holiday. It is fantastic value for money... More

We ate at Kargeen's Cafe in Muscat with 2 families (total of 9 people 4 adults and 5 kids). We were seated in the Arabic style area outside on the patio. We all enjoyed eating this way especially since we had to take our shoes off to enter our eating area! The service was excellent as was the food. Our... More

This is a cozy place. I don't know why it's called a café though. It's a more like a restaurant then a café. The food is good but overpriced. This is the only place in Oman where you can get wood fired pizzas though, so if you're craving an authentic napoletana pizza it's the place! The service though is really... More

The restaurant is brilliantly mixed the classic & modern style of decoration as well as the food. it is truly difficult to chose your meal from the rich menu. however I recommend the spicy pepper steak , which you can have it with white rice with added Tabasco & lemon WAW. Philadelphia chicken is nice as well as the Turkish... More

A truly enjoyable evening, in a restaurant that does not serve alcohol, and doesn't need to because the food and ambiance speak for themselves. Fresh ingredients cooked simply and well. Good mezze, great mixed and seafood grills, fabulous breads and salad - the Kargeen Salad is excellent being fresh, crisp, and dressed just right. Try the pomegranate juice, with a... More

This is a great place for a leisurely dinner. Service is friendly and helpful, but not quick. The menu has a large variety of items including Arabic dishes, pizza, pasta, and sandwiches. The desserts and shakes are some of the best I've had. The atmosphere is also fantastic. There are multiple different seating areas and if you want to sit... More

This restaurant is an Omani foodie's dream! If you are looking for authentic Omani food experience, this place is it! The food is tastefully delicious! Try the watermelon shisha if you want to enhance your Omani food experience. The only downside is the long wait for the food to come but our server, Sarwar, more than made up for it... More
