This restaurant is in the Crowne Plaza on the Gulf. It has indoor and outdoor seating above the Gulf of Oman. The service and food were the best. The bread is prepared near the tables and couldn't be better or fresher. I had the mixed grill and cannot recommend it enough. It even came with 3 types of rice. Just... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal at this restaurant. The menu has a good range of options along with a decent wine list. All the dishes chosen were very tasty and of a good size and service was attentive and helpful without being overbearing. We did not feel the dishes were too large as others mention. The restaurant was busy... More

Place is definitely very decadent and ritzy and comes at a pretty hefty cost but...the food was amaaaaaazing. Unfortunately we went after sunset and couldn't see much of the amazing view but we could see and hear the ocean which was pretty nice. My husband and I split a three course meal and it was definitely enough for both of... More

Good spread but not great. Ambience is perfect with both outdoor and indoor seating. Good service. The place has something wanting.

The outside dining, overlooking the hotel garden and the sea, is lovely. The food is delicious and the portions are generous. Service is good. However, the terrace, which is shared with the bar and Italian restaurant, gets very busy. There is a some noise from the swimming pool and garden area. Prices are what you would expect from a 5-star... More

Nicely set on the terrace of the hotel, with beach view and additional indoors space. Good, professional and friendly service. I had an aubergines and fried onions appetizer akin to Baba Ganoush and a huge portion of very tender juicy chicken skewer served with 3 different kinds of rice plus a poached half tomato. This restaurant is licensed, so finally... More

Super location looking out over the bay - just magnificent. Try and get there before sunset as it's the most beautiful view. Good was good not outstanding but good. Service on time and punctual. So a good restaurant but with the view it makes a very good place.

In the Crowne Plaza with terrace view of the bay. Good food and attentive service, hotel prices but not excessively expensive, especially for Middle Eastern hotel restaurants! Makes a change from the usual choice of fare although not being Iranian I'm not sure how authentic the food is but it is good.

It is proudly billed as the only Iranian restaurant in Muscat, if not the whole of Oman, and offers, therefore something a little different. The portions are huge - possibly as a sop to the local population who like this apparently - so be warned. Our overall impression was that it somehow failed to be really authenticly Persian and were... More

We were staying at the Crown Plaza and having flown in from the UK that day did not wish to venture too far on our first evening. Sometimes restaurants in hotels disappoint but this one did not. We had a delicious meal sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea and tennis courts. The service was attentive, the menu varied and... More
