Our hotel conceirge had never heard of this place and couldn't find that it existed, so we jumped in a taxi hoping to find it. We called the number several times and they never answered. Our taxi drove all over according to the directions on here and we couldn't find it. We got out and asked several locals - none... More

OK, so most people have identified that this place is a little drive out of Muscat, but despite our local taxi driver never having heard of GPIR, it was worth the perseverance of making him drive into what seemed like the middle of nowhere. Al Ansab Road does go on for ages, but there it was alongside the mosque and... More

Even the presentation of the bill in a small whiteboard written on it is a great Idea. Definitely recommended and great place for a relaxing... More

It is a little drive, but it is worth it. We started with the house salad and the hummus. Both tasted very well. For main we had Loubiya Polo (Persian style rice) and Aloo Karafss (a stew of tender lamb and chicken with plums and celery). We also ordered a mixed grill and a basmati rice. All the dishes tasted... More

This place is a bit out of the way from Muscat, about 20 mins from Al Kuwair or MSQ, but boy is it worth the drive. The main thing about this place is the quality of ingredients and preperation, and you can tell the difference in a big way. The salads are fresh, never tired, the humous is the best... More

Fabulous quality food at amazingly good prices, the best lamb I've ever had in Oman! Thouroughly recommend that a visit is well worth while, but you'll have to book as the restaurant is rather small. Take away is available too, so worth storing their number in your mobile!! Try the mouth watering lamb 'koubideh' kebabs, persian rice of the day,... More
