Good restaurant if looking for Omani authentic food. You will find your self in food chambers! Not the best way to socialize however this is the way it is.

To appreciate this place for what it is depends on how much time one has spent in the region and one's familiartiy with the regional food. The experience in the end will then be in line or above or below your expectations... as so often.
Omanis can be found there later in the evening or closer to their weekend. Else you are likely to find a tour group sprawled on the floor of the ground level rooms. Decor and what passes for atmosphere makes a slightly rundown impression, which you find in the gulf once you get off into areas where people who actually reside there may go, whether in Qatar or here or other gulf states. Rooms upstairs with mandatory (old) TV and a bell to ring for service. One has to have an understanding for how they function in this world to appreciate how it all works. The service was attentive and polite, the food well prepared and prompt. Tamarind fish curry, a grilled chicken and of course camel with vegetables, accompanied by brown and white rice along with hummous and mango juice for a very reasonable price. Omani food has absorbed infuences from many traditions over the centuries and Indian style dishes are also a sure bet. Parking is easy.
If in Muscat this is a good stop just be sure your expectations are in line with local Oman and not Dubai.

We tried this restaurant as it was suggested by Lonely Planet as one of the places where to taste real Omani food and have a real Omani experience.
One of the worst suggestion ever: the private room where we were seated for dinner was very cheap - zero atmosphere, it may not have been dirty but definitely better not touch too much stuff and find out - and the food was insignificant - not awful but surely not good.
The place was deserted, so I cannot say if they have regular Omani clients going there to enjoy real Omani food: but I felt that it was a very cheap and low level restaurant where you may not want to take your only chance as a tourist to try Omani food.

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.
