“Not the best in town”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

We were looking forward to a top Omani meal. The first thing to get used to is that unlike all the luxury hotels this resteraunt is dry. Looking at a menue with a glass of water in your hand is a somewhat odd experience for a westerner. The first course was quote nice, we chose a variety of things between us and shared. The bread was too oily and meant you had to constantly wipe your hands when you touched it. 3 of the main courses were very average and one was in edible. The ice cream tasted awful. The following day meeting up with our dinner friends it transpired we had all had upset tums. They also refused to allow us to split the bill down the middle insisting just one person paid. We are all regular international travellers and have never had this experience before in a top priced place

“First Class Restaurant !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We had dinner in Al-Angham yesterday and it was really a very nice experience. It started by the nice welcome of two Omani gentlemen in their traditional dress at the door. The menu contains all different traditional Omani food. As an Omani, i must admit that the food taste was really really good. The place is nicley decorated and the service is a first class.

I would really recommend it for those who would like to experience traditional Omani food in an unforgettable place.

“Outstanding Omani dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Outstanding Omani food in a dining room reminiscent of an Omani house with modern touches. The wait staff is eager to please and happy to explain the dishes and how they are made...let them guide you. All the rice/lamb dishes and camel are excellent. There are several different breads, one of rice looking rather like a thick pancake! That will come with your meal. Be certain to finish with the frankincense ice cream!

“Very good food, very good service, perfect design”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

If you go to the opera or if you just want to have a wonderfull diner, don't hesitated to go to Al Angham. It's important to make a booking before, because they will not accept you without a booking. It's an upper class restaurant, a very good mix between tradition and modernity.
