“GR8 Ambiance , GR8 Service , GR8 Food .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Was invited for an official dinner.
Though have been there several times , I thought this time it all fell into place .
The ambiance as usual has been good , the service was excellent (we got moved to an outside table after being served the starters inside ) and the food was excellent too.
The starters of Crispy Prawns and the Beef was excellent , the Buffalo wings were NOT up to the mark and the same was highlighted to our server( he could have made an attempt to replace it )
My Hamoor Tornado was excellent (main course ) .
Will go back for sure .

“Delicious fusion food & good cocktails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

My title says it all, it's not cheap but the food is really good.
It was a very busy evening but waitresses still all smiles and service as it should be, food steaming hot and very tasty.
Expats, tourists and local Omani's on a date, you will find them here.

“VERY BAD service and Unfriendly peoe”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

As mentioned in the title, very bad service and they are very unfriendly .
I ordered a starter and a main dish!! I got the starter but they forgot to order the main dish! Of course the didn't apologize. Then when another guest arrived and asked today looks like empty as the picture describes , the hostess rudely replied No it's busy!!!! Then when I ordered a wine, I got I a broken glass.... Shall I continue ??

Dear Raffi143,

thank you for your feedback on tripadvisor.

Please accept my sincere apologies for your experience. I can assure you that we take your comments serious and we looked immediately into it to identify what has happened. The issues regarding your food are unacceptable. The dialogue you observed with another guest was actually a staff member. Nevertheless the conversation should have taken place different as your comment shows us, also in between staff. Therefore I am thankful that you shared your observations with is, since it helps to learn for the future.

The experience you made does certainly not reflect our usual great service we deliver, as you can read from many other reviews on this website.
Therefore I hope that you will give us another chance in the near future.

with kind regards

“After sundown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Like its sisters around the world, this is a wonderful place to pop into for a sundowner and a few delicious bar snacks. The only problem being that you are likely to end up staying all night... The cocktails are the real thing - which is unusual nowadays in Muscat - and there is a profusion to choose from. Likewise, the service is friendly, genuine, confident, professional, efficient - and consistent! All of which makes for a very welcome and refreshing change in this city. The food complements the cocktails, as you'd expect, and is unfailingly tasty. The venue allows for all preferences and has a lovely dining terrace outside. What a shame that the musical dimension is now so frowned upon in the Sultanate. The only other downside is the likelihood of running up an enormous bill, very quickly. Though even that won't be anywhere near high as a night back at the branch in Park Lane.

Trader Vic's is certainly one of the places in Muscat, as you rightfully write, where you can spend a whole night full of fun, especially with the extraordinary selection of drinks and their presentation.

See you soon again.
