“Good meal near the fort”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

After your tour of the interesting fort and palace in Nizwa, walk about 300 yards down the street across from the souk and enjoy an authentic Omani-Zanzibarian mean at Al Mandi. The place doesn't look like much (and it isn't) but the food is delicious and inexpensive and the location is very convenient. You can't miss with simple grilled chicken (or fish or meat), and you can spice it up with biryani Zanzibar-style or other more exotic fare. Service was friendly, english was spoken and credit cards accepted for the modest bill. Good food, inexpensive and convenient-- a winning combination in Nizwa or anywhere else in Oman. And free Wi-FI!
