“Terribly inconsiderate”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Kamat hasn't been on my list of favourite restaurants in Muscat simply because the fare is quite tasteless and the service standards have gotten progressively worse.

On a family visit, an older relative who wanted to visit the restaurant for old times sake had much of his Rajasthani Thali left untouched while I thought my Punjabi Thali was bland and lacked the zing!

The air conditioners were not working in many parts of the restaurant and the staff made no bones about the inconvenience. The washrooms were dirty and had not been cleaned which made the entire dining experience quite distasteful.

I am not going there - ever!

“Great tasting food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Kamat I think is a Karnataka brand and I was extremely pleased to see that they are as great outside India as they are within India. Kamat in Muscat is located in Al Khuwair, Ruwi and Rex Road. The variety of vegetarian food on offer is vast and the taste is perfect. Service is of superior standards. The Gujarati thali ( comprehensive meal consisting of all food groups) is a treat to the taste buds. So much that I made it a point to have my last lunch in Muscat at Kamat. The other dishes on offer range from the humble dosa in a variety of variations to chinese food (which I didn't sample). The Chinese would be shocked at the Indo- chinese variation of their food but I'm sure Kamat would do a good job with Chinese food too. If you are in Muscat, do drop in and sample their wares. Its an experience that you won't forget for a long time. My opinion- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

“Excellent food and excellent waiter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Excellent food and excellent service we have ever encountered made us come back to this restaurant each time we were in Muscat (three nights). The waiter was extremely kind, explaining various dishes on the long, long menu, patient, alert at all the times, always there but never intrusive.
Dosa was my favorite dish, but the Chinese baby corn celery chilly fry was excellent too. For desert try their natural made ice cream, although i am not really admirer of ice cream, this one was just divine.
Since Oman is quite expencive country, this restaurant has very good prices that comparing to some other restaurants is fairly cheap considering great, freshly prepared food.
We would highly recommend Kamat (Rex road) and thanks to wonderful waiter who is the heart of this restaurant and who made us welcomed each time (we would come to the restaurant after travelling or hiking in our outdoor clothing or dusty climbing shoes but never felt discriminated).
