Located in the busy Al Khuwair residential area, the restaurant is on the main road. The ambiance is good and offers a choice of veg and non veg menu (unlimited) with starters and main course. The food is awesome and service is excellent. The 'Gauloti' kebabs will melt in your mouth. Having visited the place a number of times the... More

The restaurant has a set menu and you just inform them if you want the Veg option or the non-veg and wether you'd like to include the prawns (which is a little... More

The best restaurant in Muscat, Indian taste. I love the food parade in order to taste chicken kabab, chicken tikka, mutton biriyani, fish, soup. I guess is a must to visit this restaurant in Oman. The service is great, helpfull and polite.

I have expected an arabic or turkish type of grill but its all tikka! All meat taste the same, so much spicy. Kebab was better in a cheap turkish coffee shop in Al Khuwair. For first timers, its not advisable and not worth a penny. You will regret you were fooled 😂. Understand the menu first before eating.

Tried them after a very long time, and quality of food was honestly far below my expectations. The tikka's were far to burnt to point of having to waste a lot of the (pricey) food. Ok to try once and take your own decision.

The name says it all, they have changed their name from the great kabab factory to the kabab factory and their quality/taste of food is not the same too, earlier they were value for money and now they are just expensive. ramadan iftar buffet was for 4.9 rials 4 years ago and now it is for 8.9

Went for iftar buffet yesterday, a total of 3 of us. For iftar they gave a few dates, like 5 pakoras and the most cheap tasting sugary mango drink (probably a powder mix like tang).Service was slow, we wanted some more pakoras they said they ran out. Did I mention service was slow? They seemed more attentive towards larger parties.... More

It serves a different kind of buffet in that you have to go with their order of dishes. Therefore, my valuable suggestion would be to first try all their dishes in small quantities and remember the names/description of the ones you liked the most. Once all the dishes are exhausted, you may order more of those for later. DO NOT... More
