My husband had been here on a previous visit and raved about it. I am really fussy about Indian / Pakistani food so, ever the sceptic was not expecting much. The decor was really nice, balked a bit at the prices but I had been pre warned we had agreed to just order what we fancied.

The food was sooooooo good! As well as the wonderful service. Yes, it was empty but we did go very early for dinner (6pm) the starters were wonderful, the best main we had was a fish curry and the tomato curry, so yummy, the other dishes were great, these two just stood out. The bread basket was very good with a lot of variety. My son does not eat chilies and had a delicious malai chicken with rice which he enjoyed.

For dessert I would recommend the carrot halwa.

Definitely will go there again.

Sitting outside in the evening looking across the harbour at his Majesty's royal yacht, excellent food and drink combined with exemplary hospitality! A level above the other offerings available in the area....

Very good Indian cuisine, excellent service, good location (right next to Mutrah souq). Very empty even on a Friday night.

Prices are unreal: 12 Euros for onion baghee starter is just pushing it too far. We enjoyed our food, but saw two sets of customers leave when confronted with the menu. Staff explained that prices have been "re-adjusted" in 2013 to reflect levels in London's top Indian restaurants. I think they just pushed it too far.

close to Muttrah souk, Kurkum is a small even intimate restaurant with outside seating that allows a pleasant and relaxed enjoyment of the locale. we went there for dinner with a small group of my friend and the experience couldn't have better: the lights were dimmed and fresh flowers were displayed on the table. Everything was immaculate and precisely laid out. The food was no less pleasing than the environment especially the roasted duck tandoori which was succulent and not too spicy - often these qualities are not considered in restaurants. Every sauce - it was explained - is made in house and nothing is bought it, This was born out in the consistent quality of every dish. We particularly savoured the coriander and tamarind sauces. The only thing not made at Kurkum was the Omani Halwa. This is a local speciality only made in artisanal kitchens with long his histories of halwa preparation. Definitely we will be going back again. An experience to remember!
