Description: A cozy diner that is making an honest attempt at dishing out close to home cooked, recipes of traditional Mughlai delicacies. We have increased space at our Al Khuwair branch and we are very happy to welcome more foodies to dine in with us at begums. Check out our exciting array of additions to the menu. Our new outlet at Bowshar will be opening soon and till then we will only be able to offer limited take away and delivery services.

One of the best Indian meals I have had. The food is made fresh. The starters we had paneer kebab and Sheekh. Very nice. The sheik a little spicy. For the mains, the Mushroom based gravy vegetable is superb. the Veg Biryani is the BEST. Dal Makhani, was alright and a bit too spicy for the avg. dal makhani that is expected at a Indian restaurant.
The cost of the meal is affordable for all pockets. The quality of food is good. It would have really helped if the people would have invested on the looks and location of the place, which are a big minus. The hosts of the restaurant a Indian family, are very nice to have around and recommend.

It had been absolutely ages since I ate such awesome Biriyani!!!! The kebabs and the Biriyani are great. The meats (Mutton and Chicken) are soft and melt in your mouth. The DAL is to die for. I even loved the Egg and Vegetarian Biriyani!!!

The food can also be customised to your palate.... spicey, not so spicey or not spicey at all.

I love the place.... and if you love flavour, then let your palate have a feast at Begums!!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

It's easy to fall under the impression that Begum's caters widely to non-vegetarians given it's specialities of biryanis and kebabs but being a vegetarian and a regular at Begum's, I can positively say that this place has excellent, mouth watering vegetarian dishes too! The mushroom mattar masala and malai kofta are not to be missed! The veg biryani is also one of the best I've had in town! Great little restaurant with friendly staff and service!

Begum's is a true gem. Outstanding food and a generous welcome at incredibly low prices. The quality of the food easily rivals any of the top end Indian restaurants in Muscat at a fraction if the cost. While it may be small (booking essential) it is perfectly formed. The staff are genuinely eager to help and well educated in the food they serve. The owners have an obvious passion for serving the finest possible food. We will be returning soon and often.
