“One of the old places - good food, good price”

Omar Al Kayyam Restaurant
Ranked #216 of 432 Restaurants in Muscat
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Its right near Ruwi roundabout, in the middle of the old area of Muscat.
Menu is categorised into Chinese, Indian, European and the Indian is by far the best.
Try the Tikka Lamb and a cucumber Raita with bread for OR 3.900 (around £6.50).

Omar Khayyam is one of the oldest established restaurant in Muscat. Their Indian dishes are tasty, but one has to ask the waiter to tell the chef to use less oil.
We recommend to skip their so called Chinese or continental dishes.
Their creme caramel, which they were famous for at one time, is no longer the same.
The staff is friendly and courteous. Ambiance is average.

The butter chicken and the chicken escalope sizzler is the best thing about this place. The service and the ambience is very poor

Near Ruwi roundabout. Simple and traditional Indian food with good portions - it has been here for over 26 years and is the choice of many expats for a curry.

I went with my family and friends to the Ruwi branch, was totally shattered to see the restaurant on top the service, ambience, food everything was terrible. I think regarding the experience with restaurant this was the worst one I had in Muscat.
