Ambience was very good.The area is also very good.Ordered for 3 dishes.Pepper chicken was good.Prawn masala and meen manga itta curry was very very very bad.sorry to say this. Very expensive too. They should learn from 1947 in ghubra and foodlands in al khuwair.

Description
Woodlands Restaurant, widely recognised for its fine preparation of famous Chettinad dishes, has enjoyed immense popularity among food connoisseurs in Oman, especially the expats and westerners. With a track record of 30 years of successful operations in the Sultanate, it prides in being the ideal family restaurant that not only excels in food, but also in its service that comes straight from the heart. Little wonder then, that it won the 'Best Service Award' 5 times, Best Indian Restaurant 2011 & Best South Indian Cuisine Award for 2013 & 2014. Currently, the restaurant operates in the Central Business District, Muscat.
