Muscats' long history as a trading port means that the influence of the Indian subcontinent is everywhere, so it seemed only appropriate to try a curry house. What a find! Tasty well-prepared food, good size portions and gracious staff made me wish it was a bit closer to home because I'd eat there every week.

I have "Taste" bookmarked forever in my mind. It is a hidden gem - most people would drive right by it - nestled along the famous Corniche area.

Sat at the plastic covered tables outside in the shade on the Corniche in Muttrah, Muscat having checked the menu. We were welcomed by the Maitre'D and a white tablecloth plus place settings appeared followed by a welcome drink of "Rosewater", very good. Having ordered a starter as a main, a small amuse- bouchée came, followed by a significant sized... More

We had pleasure of dining at Korkum restaurant on March 1'st 2017. On first impressions, the restaurant is a stunning modern restaurant with beautiful works or art from Ghalya's Art galllery. Then the food and the service is exquisite and deserves to be lauded as one of the best in Oman.
