Though fairly quiet on the evening of our visit, the atmosphere in the charming 'garden' was very agreeable and conducive to good conversation. As a party we ate mainly local dishes which were very tasty. For those wishing something else, there was a wide range of Italian food and more. The fruit juice mocktails were great.

This bustling, open-air garden restaurant is very popular with locals, expatriates and the tourists so it's best to book a table.There is seating Inside too. From the extensive, multi-cultural menu I opted for the delicious rucola and mushroom salad which also contained sun-dried tomatoes and slivers of parmesan cheese, dressed with a mustard vinaigrette. My husband chose a quattro stagioni... More

We had lunch at Kargeen and it was very nice. We ate inside although during the evening you would be better selecting one of the many outdoor choices because the setting is very nice. The food was a mixture of local food and it was very tasty. The staff were fantastic and I could not fault this place. Go ahead... More

We went to Kargeen to try traditional Oman food. My friend and I asked the waitress what to get and she suggested the lamb and rice. We started with the bread and selection of sauces, which were very, very good. My friend had a lime soda which she said was amazing and I had one of the best watermelon shakes... More

The setting of this place makes it so special. We sat outdoors under trees lit by lanterns, very romantic setting. The food is good as well, a little spendy for what you get.

Enjoyed our visit to this restaurant one balmy evening. Lots of choice. Would go back. I loved the pretty lights which created a lovely atmosphere. There are two areas to sit in across either side of the alley way. Look at both and choose what decor suits you best.

Situated in the middle of the shopping complex in MSQ every taxi driver knows where it is and there is plenty of parking. The shopping centre pathways are typically haphazard but just wander in and look for the twinkling lights. Booking essential. November to April ask to be outside. This will put you at a table shouldered by abundant foliage... More

Went here on a recommendation. Didn't manage to go in the evening, when it is meant to be magical, but very busy (booking essential). Relatively quiet at lunchtime. Sat outside and enjoyed the buffet lunch very much. They also offer an extensive menu of Omani and other dishes. Shiha is very popular here. Drinks service rather slow, but friendly. Good... More
