Description: The Indus brings the romance of the North West Frontier to life. Our vibrant art-inspired ambience is designed to entice the senses and the spices-laden aroma is reminiscent of the rustic cuisine and exotic flavours of the Indian subcontinent that are expertly recreated by our Master Chef.The FoodExperience the warmth and succour with every bite - 'The Indus' signature entrée boasts a variety of succulent meat and vegan kebabs, made from authentic ingredients, using traditional preparations. The selection of fine ambrosia from some of the world's most celebrated wineries, and the distinctively refreshing non-alcoholic beverages are truly mesmerising. The main course features a flamboyant medley of spicy curries, innovative tandoor-cooked breads and special accompaniments. The rage of delectable desserts satiates the sweet tooth.The AmbianceThe riveting interiors of The Indus are a rich blend of the traditional and the modern; laden with artefacts, wall hangings and rich Indian fabrics. The walls are bejewelled with glimmering Kashmiri Jamawar shawls and the Zari adorned silk cushions burst with colour. The lattice screen is typical of the Indian architecture and serves as a partition for the private dining space.

We visited Indus for my dad's birthday. Very good ambience and excellent service. Our hosts for the evening were Mr Anoop and Mr Pratham who went an extra mile to make our evening special by getting a birthday cake for my dad. Food was exceptional. If you are looking for Indian food in Oman, this is the place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Indus. We sat on the terrace and enjoyed the magnificent views of the Opera House, the warm weather under magical moonlight whilst being looked after the professionals here. The recommendations made were very helpful and we were delighted with every meal! The portions for main meals are very generous although delicious. Special mention to Ajay and Wilson who contributed to a fantastic, magic night and we highly recommend a visit to this restaurant. We will definitely return if we are in Muscat again. The only negative comment is that it is expensive. I am sure more people would visit if the prices were more reasonable.

We had dinner on the terrace last night and can’t recommend this place enough. The service Ajay and Wilson gave us was exemplary and attentive. The food was out of this world, albeit the portions are generous so we ended up over ordering. All in all a great experience

First time to try The Indus, the food was beautiful. So tasty, it didn't look like huge portions but it was more than enough. It is licenced so alcohol is available. The service was very good but as usual with every restaurant in Oman after you have finished with your food the waiters rarely come over to top up wine or ask if anything else is required, we just accept that this is the way in Oman. The only negative is the cost, basically we had a starter and a main (between us) and a bottle of wine and it came to 70 OMR (£135-£140). We sat on the terrace, a little noisy from the road but a very nice night. Think we'll keep this place for special occasions due tot he cost

Very nice Indian restaurant, located next to the Opera House. We had a lovely dinner here last weekend and could not fault it - the food, the service and atmosphere is excellent! A special thanks to Ruchika who was very nice and attentive to us. We will definitely go back!
