Our Taxi driver recommended this restaurant after we asked for a traditional Omani cuisine. The food is flavourful and on point. We had lentil soup, a chicken with rice dish and a lamb with rice dish. I cannot remember the names but pictures are attached. The decor is calming, the lighting is dim to give a fine-dining feel. Our server,... More

We were that impressed we wemt back a second time. The staff are all passionate and knowledgable about the food and their recommendations were all very good. Across our two visits one dish we had twice was the Basa fillets which had been marinated in herbs and spices and is very tasty. Other dishes we had were the Camel biriyani... More

5 stars to : 1. The Omani halwa in a pastry case which was the ultimate dessert! 2. Staff very helpful and friendly. Not an electric atmosphere..quiet and subdued.

You must try "Harisaa," "Showa" and "Seafood Soup" with them. These are all very nicely done. Presentation is good; atmosphere is nice; I there for lunch; maybe looks better at night with the yellow light. I guess :-) Service was 7/10. Food was 8.5/10. Will probably end up there again soon.

Long menu with many choices but we got suggestions by the waiter. They have signature dishes and we tried the camel with curry, the beef (the one cooked in the banana leaf) and a grilled fish. For desert their signature dessert and incense ice cream. Excellent the juices (we had the classic)... all for about 50 OMN. Very good service... More

The restaurant is situated in a mall near the opera, so it might not seem a good option at first, but the interior of the place is very nice and the food very good. Great Omani specialties, Shuwa and Camel Biryani. Service is extremely friendly and courteous. Definitely worth a visit.

A friend suggested us to try this place. A very clean and well designed restaurant, few minutes from the Royal Opera House. Each dish was well presented and tasty. The service was impeccable, special mention to Suraj who greatly advised us on what to try according to our preferences. The only down side is that it's a bit hard to... More

We are glad we trusted some previous reviews and had dinner here. A very clean restaurant, furnished with an elegant Arabic taste. All the staff were extremely polite since the very first moment we entered. We had Corniche Calamari Salad and Seeniyat Al Wali as starters; Grilled Mashakeek and Camel Biriany as main. Everything was delicious, spices were balanced, plenty... More
