Me and friends went for dinner on 11th Oct 2021 and ordered 3 main course (with same taste for 3 different menu items). Food quality was bad and with burnt rotis and food was expensive with very less portion. Will not visit again…. One person...got sick the nest day. We paid 50 rials for a small portion of food… totally a bad experienceMore

Food being good is a common factor, but combining that with a great view and atmosphere in the restaurant is awesome. That's what you get here. Food is excellent and the environment is superb. A good place to visit.More

We went for a fixed menu package so the price was fair as it included drinks, but both the food and service were quite average, don't think we'll be rushing back in a hurry.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
