Kargeen Caffe serves all kind of food, from pizza to traditional Oman dishes. We went for the last kind. The restaurant is mainly a number of connected gardens, hidden in a not classy district of Muscat. Customers are mainly local.The atmosphere is beautiful, almost magical, mainly because of its lighting. The service, although wearing traditional clothing is mainly from abroad,... More

Atmosphere in kargeen is majestic, the local specialities are purely delicious. No alcohol is allowed but that's fine, fruit juices and mocktails they offer are great. Very affordable and what I found impressive was the hospitality of the staff. A good option to consider when in muscat

If you're looking for a place with good food, reasonable prices and an arabic atmosphere, this is it! The best is to go there after sunset, when you can sit in the outside garden with shady trees that are lit up with candles and light. You will smell the smell of incense and shisha pipe, and can observe a mix... More

It's a pity that the service at Kargeen is terrible and I wish they would improve on this. the food is good and the ambience also is excellent. One can choose the type of seating . they have tents where they have floor seating and is relaxed and personal. One side is quite whilst the other side is noisy and... More

Kargeen's is a long time favourite but has let us down badly on a number of occasions with visitors from overseas or on special occasions such as birthday celebrations. Overall, it's very atmospheric, the food and drinks are beautifully presented and delicious and the shisha is great. However, the service just cannot be relied upon. The waiters increasingly seem overworked... More

My husband and I heard great things about this restaurant so we decided to give a try thinking we would get the Omani experience. First of all the service was terrible it took us a very long time to get the waiter's attention, to get our drinks, the food and the check. We were expecting Omani food, but the menu... More

Have been here each time when in Muscat and it still one of our favourites. Make reservations in advance as it can be quite busy. They have a smoking and non-smoking section. Do try to get a table in the garden or a majlis (if only 2 a majlis would be too big and unromantic). Too many entrees, breads and... More

Lovely garden with a nice atmosphere. The food is good although prices may seem a bit steep compared to other restaurants in Oman. Apart from food there's also the possibility to enjoy a shisha, just like the locals do.
