A very god place if you want to eat some god food, from the middleeast, the make curry, biryani, kebab, different fish, and when you have taste it, you will come back again, and again. Still dreaming of Mutton Rogan Josh, and all the others.

The food there is the best you can get in muscat. However its pretty small and lacks enough tables. Always make sure to make a reservation before going there. When it started there was nothing close but over time their quantity has reduced

After ages had a delicious Indian meal, the Gosht, Kebabs and dal were to die for. Loved the idea of less oil and no fat! The food was tasty and the spices just right. Firni was delicious cold and creamy.. over all a brilliant experience and excellent service!

Very tasty Indian food with large selection. The Palak Paneer was delicious. Can be a bit noisy, especially upstairs with low ceiling. Friendly staff. No alcohol.

I eat a lot of curry. Some might say too much. I think myself a bit of connoisseur although that's probably just to stoke my own ego. Begum's is to Muscat what Tayyabs is to London.
