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. Dining ExperiencesOverlooking the Opera House courtyard, The Indus is an indoor and outdoor restaurant that makes every meal a celebration. The Alfresco seating at the terrace enchants the guests with the spectacular views while the opulence of the indoor seating recreates the splendour of the royal courts of India. The private dining area offers the comforts of a lounge and the privacy to enjoy an intimate meal with your loved ones. Maximum Seating Capacity - 145 * Private dining - 28 guests * Indoor seating - 71 guests * Terrace - 46 guests. Located at the Opera Galleria, Muscat, Oman, this fine dining restaurant in the Sultanate boasts of the same prestigious address as the majestic Royal Opera House.

“Indeed Its Indian”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Had Business Lunch few months back and believe me it meets all the expectation one could have for Indian food.

We were having few top executive level people from other nationality who were very keen to try Indian food and Indus made it experience perfect. The waiters were having good knowledge of dishes & explained quite well what they are serving.

Cost wise it is expensive...may be coz of the location but overall enjoyed it.

“Best restaurant in Muscat”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Indus is not the cheapest restaurant in Muscat but it is the best - the food is excellent and the service is first class. The waiters know the menu inside out and our waiter provided suggestions that turned out to be two of the best dishes we've eaten here - one was hamour coated in coriander, mint, chilli etc. and lightly fried, the other was a shredded lamb leg which was blended with numerous spices to make something quite breathtaking.

It's not a place for everyday eating but for a treat it's superb.

“Best in ambience...average food..”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

I along with four friends went for a dinner. The ambience was so gud. However the food was not upto the mark. Very highly priced. This is restaurant is purely meant for business class. Not recommended for family or friends...

“Overpriced Average food”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

The restaurant has a good look and feel. The staff was pretty pro active.The major disappointment came with the food. I had a few Kebabs as starters they were decent. The main course didn't taste good. The paneer especially felt like it was made from one of those readymix packets.
For what they advertise the restaurant food is very average.
A dinner with a couple of drinks for 2 costing around 150$ I would definately expect better quality food.
