This place is a bit out of the way from Muscat, about 20 mins from Al Kuwair or MSQ, but boy is it worth the drive. The main thing about this place is the quality of ingredients and preperation, and you can tell the difference in a big way. The salads are fresh, never tired, the humous is the best I've tasted, the daily specials kept to one or 2 so the quality remains and the grilled items are simply stunning, especially the lamb kebabs - no filler rubbish, just great quality meat and spices. The quality is so good I'd personally be more than happy paying double what they charge as the prices are incredibly reasonable for the quality. In short, just go there, as once you've been you'll be dying to return...

Fabulous quality food at amazingly good prices, the best lamb I've ever had in Oman! Thouroughly recommend that a visit is well worth while, but you'll have to book as the restaurant is rather small. Take away is available too, so worth storing their number in your mobile!! Try the mouth watering lamb 'koubideh' kebabs, persian rice of the day, with fresh seasonal salad and yummy hummus, one visit will never be enough!!
