As you enter the Golden Oryx, it's decor is very thematic and gives you excitement about the food it has to offer.
The vegetarians of the group ordered steamed and pan fried noodles (neither very tasty), bean curd, veg balls in manchurian sauce and spring rolls. The portion sizes were fairly large but the flavour didn't really resonate with our group.
That evening the Mongolian Buffet was on offer and the food didn't really appeal in that much either.
One positive was it's very friendly staff.

Ate here one night. Just down the road from our hotel. Service lovely and it worth visiting for the interior alone. Crispy lamb was sensational. Licensed so a beer too. Recommended

Good service, friendly staff. Meal for 2 included steamed lamb (sauce had ginger and the meat was very tender) and noodles with crab and spinach (recommend). Prices on the high end for a Chinese restaurant (in Oman) but not overly so. Total bill with starters, mains, rice and a couple of drinks was ca. OMR 30. The restaurant serves alcohol.

So i visited golden oryx after really long, since its been open for a while in muscat. We ordered for some chicken wantons and vegetable manchurian. They were good, however pricey for the quantity. For the main course we jus ordered singapore noodles which were quite tasty. Since the fried icecream was highly recommended here we tried it too, which was one of the best fried icecreams i hv tried around. All in all, place has a nice quiet ambience and the food s good. I would definitely agree wid the previous reviewers that the food does have an indo chinese taste, however i wouldnt complain about that .
