Located near the Opera house this restaurant should definitely be on your list. The food is fresh, local and decidedly middle eastern. You have to try the camel biryani ( a bit like mutton in taste and texture). Our front of house 'Captain Soonaj' expertly led us through the extensive menu, recommending a selection of fish, chicken and beef dishes... More

What a fantastic restaurant. Started well with Vivian helping us patiently through the menu. Had a tasty mezze starter. Then both had a beef main course, one a tagine the other a slow cooked and spiced dish, beautiful. Will definitely eat here on our next trip.

The food and service at Ubhar were excellent. From the moment that we walked in, our server greeted us in English and patently walked us through the different menu options, offering great suggestions for Omani cuisine. The food was excellent, the portions were substantial, and the decor was warm with traditional accents. All around great experience.

If you have the mixed mezze, you need no more! Very delicious though. We also had the camel biryani which was very tasty, tasted like beef. Nice restaurant, quite formal and a bit chilly with aircon so wrap up a little.

This review is coming from a local. Food is Authentic, very delicious and worth the price. Staff were very friendly. Thumbs up to Younis from Morocco who never dissapointed us with his recommendations. Starting from the starter, every bite was melting in my mouth. Camel Biryani was by far the best I had in all GCC countries making it at... More

Our first night in Oman brought us to this wonderful restaurant. Our waiter, Vivian (Hope I got that right!) was just super - helpful with great recommendations to us novices at eating Omani food. The food tasted great, and the starter selection we had gave us a great opportunity to try different foods including dips and money bags. The atmosphere... More

Thank you so much for the wonderful lunch today. Excellent Omani food, wonderful service. The hummous is delicious as is the Camel biriyani and washed down with a peach and orange Bellini with 7 UP instead of champagne but delicious none the less. We would definitely go back.
