Ate there dinner twice in a row and each time, food, service and atmosphere were 1st class. Speciality is Peking duck, which we seldom had prepared so tender and delicious. Have a bottle of NZ Pinot Noir Malborough with the duck, it fits perfectly. Enjoy the nice seating outside the terrace, illuminated by red Chinese lanterns and expect an artistic tea service, which, together with the charming and most friendly and professionell service were the other highlights like the spicy Omanian lobster and the Cantonese prawns with the XO sauce of the evenings.

One of the better restaurants in Oman and if you like Chinese food this is the place to go - the duck is excellent, and the set menus they had at the time were good. Haven't been recently but should maybe visit to see if there have been any updates, changes, improvements.

The hotel managed to loose our booking, but were able to find us another table within 40 minutes - well worth the wait. Kids enjoyed the duck (house special) followed by a selection from the menu, table staff advised on combinations and quantity and were very happy to set the meal up as a shared banquet rather than just dishes. The tea lady was fantastic - dinner and a show! - highly recommended.

Food absolutely phenomenal - unfortunately the wines are overpriced, but I've been told this is being addressed

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.
