Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We got: - a seafood soup (Paploh) which was just so so, but the serving size was big. - Shuwa (meat and rice) which wasn’t delicious at all. (It was too simple and meet wasn’t delicious. I couldn’t recognize the meat, probably was mutton. However,...based on the price, it doesn’t worth it to eat it), and - Bamya (Okra Stew) which was too salty. Totally we paid 16.7 Oman Rials ($44). I don’t recommend this restaurant.More

We enjoyed a great meal here - too many choices on menu to decide! Lovely ambience, despite the building looking very uninspiring on the outside. We found parking very easily nearby at a lot around the corner. While we didn't find Muscat particularly impressive, we...did enjoy this dinner. And it allowed us to check the box on walking the Corniche and going to the Mutrah Souk as well, which was 10 minutes walk away.More

Can’t give a review about the food but the man at reception was both unhelpful and rather unfriendly We arrived at 18.00 without a booking The place was completely empty but they had no tables available that evening If you plan to eat there book...a table and use the lift. There are 3 flights of stairs to climbMore

Excellent omani restaurant. Excellent service. Personally don’t prefer luban water and ice cream but the Pakora, Shuwa, Mishkak, Kachori were super good. Desserts too. Fair price for the quality of dinner.

A local friend of mine brought me to this restaurant. It is truly beautifully decorated. And the small terrasse is really nice. We were given a table outside and could order. Food was good, although not over the top. But good. Service was all right....Is it a bit touristy? Probably. But still, don't miss it, just for the experience and the marvellous decor.More

If you haven't been here for authentic Omani food, you haven't been to Muscat. To cut a long story short, the food, the hospitality, the ambiance, and the service were more than 5 stars. It is unbelievable how a guest house can be transformed into...the most authentic Omani cuisine restaurant. Our dinner was included in the city tour with Suncity Oman, and we recommend everyone visiting muscat to visit this restaurant.More

Great place to try Shuwa made with lamb, as they cooked for hours underground before bringing it to restaurant and serving it. Taste was great, price reasonable and Location quite good with dates and tea for free ;)

The service was very friendly and attentive. The food was great; slightly elevated versions of traditional Omani dishes. I recommend making a reservation, since I found it pretty popular.

We discovered many excellent restaurants in Oman and this one was definitely in our top 3! The food was excellent and we loved the ‘Omani’ atmosphere (the scent of frankincense everywhere, the rose water, the music, the frankincense water). They offer a wide range of...local dishes, including excellent vegetarian options. Our Omani friends recommended this place because it’s located in front of the sea and near the souk of Muttrah, and we loved it! A must go if you’re in Muscat 😋More
