Great for outdoor eating!

We enjoyed a great meal in the (airconditioned) garden, under the trees. As one of our party was in a wheelchair, we have experienced some difficulties getting the wheelchair through the gravel to the table.

We were taken there by our tour guide. We found out the Kargeen is a very popular place for first-timers in Oman and tourists groups. The restaurant serves traditional Omani and Arabic cuisine. In addition, this is the only place in Oman where you can get wood fired pizzas. You can also get shisha. The food is fairly mediocre and... More

I've been here several times. Although okay for lunch, dinner's been more enjoyable I guess because of the more romantic Middle Eastern setting. The tables are set around lush garden and lighted trees. The menu is mainly from the region. Grilled fish and meats are delightful, along with very fresh salads and non-alcoholic cocktails. You can have a 'shisha' to... More

My colleague and I have been to Oman four times and we have visited Kargeen at least once or twice on each trip. We look forward to the food and the atmosphere and it has never disappointed. I highly recommend visiting and having shisha!

Several people advised us to try the real Omani Cuisine at this famous Cafe', so we tried it. If you are not coming by Taxi, it can be difficult to try because it is a bit out of the usual tourist routes, it is in a quiet residential area in Muscat, and even with a Navigator, as many places in...
