Description: Merhaba! Turkish cuisine primarily originate/stems from Ottoman cuisine and is a wonderful fusion of Middle Eastern, Balkan and Central Asian cuisines. Historically, the Ottoman Sultan, who was a food lover himself, played a pivotal role in placing Turkey on the culinary map of the world. He employed a thousand chefs at Topkapi Palace and set strict rules to ensure the freshness and nutritional value of food eaten by the masses. Lokanta stays true to this tradition as it presents you with Turkish food prepared from the finest freshest ingredients on the hands of experienced Turkish chefs in the true authentic turkish way. Lokanta- which means “The Restaurant” in Turkish- will take you on a magical journey which recreates the vibrant colours of the Turkish bazaar and the hustle and bustle of the streets of Istanbul to provide you with a unique dining experience like no other. Afiyet olsun!

This is one of many high-end Turkish restaurants in town so most of the menu will center around grilled chicken, meat & some seafood. The food taste is delicious, however, with no lamp chop & four skewers, 13 OR price tag is way over the top. The service is vey poor, you wait for water you ordered, the bread came very late, you name it. It is ok but you will definitely find better service with equally good food & reasonable price around Muscat.

Went with family. We got a warm welcome. The sitting area looks nice and modern. The food is good. Kebabs and fish were tasty. However, they have bad service and you wait for long time until you get your food.

I visited this restaurant with my family on first day of Eid Holiday. It’s awesome. The décor, the food and the music are all authentic Turkish including the serving style. Try the one meter long Kebab and the octopus salad and don’t forget the in-house baked bread.

We are now regular guests there both for more formal dinners and quick lunches. So far i failed to find any negative about the place. It does exacly what a restaurant should do, that that is focusing on quality food in a proper atmosphere. Congratulation to the owners.

We went here with some Turkish friends who picked the dishes for us. All of them were absolutely delicious. There are even some dishes on the menu that are very traditional and are hard to find in restaurants in Turkey nowadays.
The setting is a bit out of the way of it all. Unless you're visiting Qurum Natural park that is. The interior decorations are very nice and modern while keeping their oriental vibe.
