Food is amazing and vast choice for every taste, great service and presentation. Every detail is carefully thought out, and so it is the interior design of the place, which contributes to make this a hidden gem in Muscat. Don’t forget to order the Marco...Polo chocolate cake...More

Great food, important touristy location and cosy period style ambience- yet minimal. Food is expensive but meaningful. Elegant silver cutlery. Overall special.

We wanted Indian food which was close to the Mutrah Souq, and we found Kurkum. They offered us a welcome drink and an appetizer. We ordered a mango and chickpea salad, fish samosas (delicious!), naan, creamy almond chicken curry (I really would like to know...the recipe - it was so good), and lamb vindaloo (so yummy and tender and flavorful). All in all, we loved this place. We recommend it to everyone! Thanks!More

We were 6 of us including 2 children. Everyone tried a different dish and very much enjoyed it. Quantities are more than fair, quality is great, service was just excellent. The menu has a good selection of vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes with acceptable prices...for the quality and quantity. The restaurant is really close to the souk main entrance, perfect to have a walk on the corniche before or after. The decoration inside has a few beautiful paintings and white walls. Warmly recommended restaurant.More

We arrived about 7:30 and had no problem getting a table. The restaurant does both Asian and Indian cuisine. We started with prawn dim sum, which was excellent. For main courses I had the hot and sour fish, which was lightly spiced and the fish...melted in my mouth. The sides of Kashmiri pilao rice, ocre and cheese naan were equally good. 48 riyals for two people was a fair price given the quality of the cooking and serviceMore
