I had some delicious grilled meats and seafood at this delightful little restaurant. Service was excellent and so was the food. Try the lemon mint frozen drink!

Great local food, friendly staff. We went there twice during our 1-week-stay in Maskat. I can recommend the local traditonal dish "Shuwaa"!

A great restaurant with traditional Omani dishes. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and helped us to negotiate the menu. The peach and orange juice is really tasty. I can also recommend the Shuwa and camel curry! I don't think you can go wrong the food was all delicious and we were given a free dessert. Great service and... More

Very impressed with our visit here, thought the decor of the restaurant was great, staff really friendly. 4 of us had a variety of starters, all delicious, and for the main we had the camel biryani and a slow cooked beef dish - both of which were fantastic, we were all really impressed. Great restaurant!

The Ubhar is excellent. Traditional and extremely tasty Omani food including the truly delicious camel biriani- don't think about it just eat- and warm and helpful service. There is just that one problem when travelling with a small group of westerners who all enjoy a decent glass of wine or a gin and tonic beforehand, namely that you can't have... More

They call it fusion Omani fusion food. I just ordered the promptly waiter sugestions and got overwhelmed by some of the best perfectly seasoned food I ever get! The turmeric and lime fish soup was amazing. I strongly recommend this restaurant in Muscat. It's wonderful.

We had a long day traveling visiting Nizwa and Wadi Ghul and made the effort to prop up our eyelids with matchsticks and head out to this traditional Omani Restaurant. When the first course arrived we dispensed with the matchsticks....an eye opener. Seafood soup with a prawn wanton. This was followed by an Arabian caravan of culinary wonders including: camel...

We visited early on a Wednesday evening and found the restaurant to be half full with a mixture of locals and tourists. The restaurant has a nice ambience and is fairly informal. The staff are great; happy to describe the menu and attentive during service. I stayed with a soup which was mildly spiced and tasty. The camel biriyani was... More

It's twisted, it's different and but pure Omani heritage! 😊 Thank you so Sandeep for sorting our reservations in no time. And the hospitality by your staff, was commendable!! Wishing this place all the best. Can't wait to try another twisted desert..
