Private dining rooms meant that you are on your own with a TV for company. Food was OK and service very good, but not the 'experience' we had hoped for. Probably quite authentic though... Price was reasonable for what we had. Parking outside a bit of a problem with the shell garage and McD just opposite.

If you are looking for typical Omani food experience - this is it! Its very simple restaurant, don't expect 5* restaurant, but there is plenty of food to choose, reasonably prices, even cheap, and the food is tasty! You can choose from 65 delicious traditional dishes. Ask anything about the food and the waiters will explain well about it in brief, just choose chicken, beef of lamb, fish and take his recommendation. Food is served on big tray to your private room, while sitting on the cushions on the floor and like as the feather touch of real Arabic hospitality.Displayed on the wall lanterns, old age swords, heritage ornaments made your Omani experience full.... I tried fried chicken with spicy biriyani rice and it reminds me my mums chicken... Be aware - there is plenty of food, portions are big! I couldn't touch the salad even... Atmosphere and hospitality are typical for Omani people as a very friendly and respecting their best traditions, even though the management is Indian, or Pakistani. And what can be better than finish your dinner with Omani kahwa and dates! Maybe they are better Omani restaurants in Muscat, but for me it was really good experience of Omani traditional food.

Try Shuwa and fried chicken. They are so amazing. The fried chicken skin is super crispy and goes very well with that brown colored rice

Traditional Omani food in an authentic setting.....so far, so good and I wanted to like this place. Sitting on the floor is OK but it could have been cleaner and the decor was sparse.

The food is the thing though and it just was not very nice. Dry chicken, nothing tasted of much.

Disappointing experience.
