We really enjoyed the tandoori dishes and the dal tarka was delicious. Mixed grill and chicken tikka highly recommended. Amritsari fish bites were very poor though..they use a local soft fish which was totally inappropriate..mushy and horrid. Great position with nice view. Charming service.More

Pathetic experience. Bad service, bad quantity of food. Main course was served while the rotis were in the kitchen. Then everyone waited for the roti to come so that we can start the dinner . I was extremely embarrassed in front of my guests. They...are taking so much for the poor service and quantity. It has been such a bad experience for the first time in Muscat. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL.More

Like many other reviewers, we have to stay that the quality and flavour of the food is superb. I cannot fathom why anyone who likes Indian food would criticize this place. Most of the dishes we saw are classic staples (eg Chicken Tikka Masala, which...we had and it was delicious). The Lemon Rice is a real winner and we got the recipe to try at home. I was a little taken aback to be asked my preferred chilli level because normally I would want the chef to decide this – eg a toned down vindaloo is not really a vindaloo IMHO. The only flaw is price – it is not cheap and it was our most expensive meal in Oman. Whilst it is really good, I do not think that the relatively standard range of dishes warrants the price. But if you crave a really good Indian meal, this is the place to go. Getting there requires a car or taxi.More

Yes the location is special but we stayed at the Crown Plaza so our views were amaxing there. Service slow and they werent even fully booked. Food OK, portions are generous so be careful not to over order. Fot starters the onion and mint baijia...were nice and not greasy. The daals were tasty and nice hot naans. I agree that you can now get amazing quality Indian food elsewhere in Oman wityout having to pay a premium price but i suppose Mumtaz Mahal is a nice reataurant to go too for a special occasion?More
