Golden Oryx has earned the loyalty of our family for over 30 yrs. The food is excellent; my favorite being Hong Kong chicken with cashew nuts, Pepper fry beef, all their noodle varieties n rice - the portions are generous and the service quick and efficient. Oh yes, they also make the best fried ice cream in town and serve... More

I had a team dinner here. I have been to many Chinese and pan Asian restaurants but sadly this place didn't quite meet my expectations.

Tucked away in a relatively quiet location on Rex Road, lovely ambience, decent Chinese meal with large servings and good service. Although the quality was good, it is perhaps over-hyped. Perhaps more suited to Corporate and Group get-togethers than family meals

We have been visiting Golden Oryx for the last 32 years and have always come away extremely satisfied with the quality of food as well as the service.in addition to Chinese,the menu also includes Thai cuisine. I am particularly partial to the Peking Duck,the Prawn Suzie Wong and the Hong Kong Chicken.

Delicious Chinese food and their crispy lamb and lemon chicken is a must. Perfect quantities for the price you are paying. The service is top notch and had a wonderful time there.

Had been visiting this joint since the last 20 years or so and am glad to know - they have maintained the quality as well as the serving sizes. Still one of the best joints to have Chinese (Indo-Chinese) foods in Oman, though now being slightly out of the way since the scene shifted towards Qurum and Bowsher side. Even... More

We turned up at 8pm to a near empty restaurant, normally a bad sign - but in our case we were just there before it warmed up. By the time we left there were more diners and a better atmosphere. Portion size was huge, you will not leave hungry, and the food was delicious. All of the reviews mention the... More
