Good muhghlai/indian cusine on the way to sohar near thumrait roundabout. We always travel to sohar on business and this is a safe place to have food on the highway.the quantity is much more so one dish shall fulfill two at ease.biriyani is excellant and in veggie dish palak panerr is the best.small restaurant with separate family room .service is good and ambiance is average considering the location in the highway to sohar.they have the main oldest branch in ruwi and one more in muscat.

“One of the old places - good food, good price”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 revisited”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

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.
