The décor was refined, the food was fantastic and the service perfectly attentive. This is a high class restaurant. The food is Indian although there is also Chinese options and there are clear local influences.

This is a restaurant, which within the one menu has a Chinese, Omani, Indian and Lebanese menu - all with a Southern Indian flair. A rose and mint infused welcome drink was served on arrival -sweet and gracious! Waiters were eager to assist as we were the only guests. We chose to go dim sum or equivalent - with a... More

How have we lived in Muscat so long and not dined here. It's normally an Indian restaurant, but is also doing Chinese. We had crab and fish cakes, which were steamed and lovely. Crab curry, half crabs in a tasty coconut curry sauce Their take on Peking duck, tender, moist and not at all fatty Loved each dish. Throw in... More

The mental picture of an Oasis is readily associated with an Arabian Desert scene, a lush verdant space surrounded by a much harsher uniform landscape of monotonous topography, keep this image to the forefront of your mind as I describe Kurkum dining experience! I happened by chance upon this restaurant on a recent visit to Muscat, it’s situated near the... More

We spent lovely time at this delightful restaurant over looking the main stretch of water of Matrah Harbor. The food was very good although the price is slightly on the higher scale when compared to nabouring restaurants but maybe the quality of the food is far better.

Thank Clori K
