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
