This is a must visit to get a glimpse of Omani food. Enjoy the delicious biryani called Kabouli Al-Bateena with roasted chicken and camel meat.. lovely combination. The chambered family sections in the restaurant are lovely. So is the beautiful Omani decour of the place.

Loved the ambiance, it so reflects the local culture. Carpeted and floor level majlis, eating from one big plate, sitting on the carpet was exciting experience. Food here is excellent, loved every morsel of it.

If you wish to try traditional Omani food in traditional Omani restaurant, Bin Ateeq is the place to be. Do not expect super service and posh place. It is rather simple restaurant, where you will be sitting on a floor without a table how it was many years ago. The food is similar to Indian. We ordered Shuwa lamb cooked... More

Easy to find as it is next to a petrol station and is quite close to the Avenues Mall and Grand Mall (could walk or just get a taxi for less than 2 OMR). It has some pretty lights outside.... We came here after getting to our hotel so it was early for dinner and thus we got a room... More

You are sitting on the carpets in separate room. Great food and service, reasonable prices. Delicious fresh juices. Recommended.

Some colleagues from Europe were on business trip to Oman and asked for a restaurant with Omani food. We went there and were quite satisfied. Although the food was not exactly as home made but the restaurant is a good place to bring your non-omani friends. Will go back next time if similar occasion.

We went here on a recommendation from our hotel. The place is in Bank street near the clock tower. The restaurant has an unassuming look from the outside. It is a standard average restaurant - no bells or whistles. Diners are given their own room - it is a sit down on the floor affair which adds a bit of... More

I have eaten wonderful food in Omani houses and this restaurant does not reflect Omani cooking at all. The food at this restaurant is not good. In addition, I have no problem sitting on the floor, but not on old, dirty carpets and cushions. Avoid this place until they improve.
