“Best Chinese Restaurant in Oman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

China Mood is located in the Al Bustan Palace Hotel and it really delivers to the hotel standards. I tend to go there quite often and the staff is very friendly and courteous.
During the winter months, you can sit outside and be surrounded by the sea on one side and mountains on the other. It makes for a very picturesque dining experience.
When you go in groups of more than 5, you can choose to be seated in your private dining area and enjoy your meal.
My family is vegetarian, and we found plenty of options. We really enjoyed the crispy mushroom appetizer.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Mood maybe”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

Too pretentious. Been to better Chinese in Bejing at half the price.
Not keen on their lump peking duck either.

“Very good Chinese dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2011

Good Chinese dinner, Peking duck, sweet and sour shrimp, excellent. A lovely Chinese lady serving Jasmin tea, a nice touch.
Smallish, intimate restaurant, very enjoyable evening.
The supervisor Paul, very friendly, and remembered our names, whenever we met him in other parts of the hotel. He also was helping to serve in the bar at the beachfront restaurant during the day. China Mood was only open for dinner, not lunch.

“Most authentic Chinese food in Oman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2010

China Mood is located at the Bustan Palace, obviously the furnishings are palatial and luxurious. The Chef and hospitality staff are all Chinese. The food is delectable and probably the best Chinese food served in Oman. Alcohol is available as well. Excellent service!
