This restaurant was mentioned in our traveler's guide and after visiting this place I can definitely recommend this restaurant. The food was delicious, local and freshly made. The prices were more than OK and the staff very friendly. The location close to a busy street...gives it a unique feeling and we enjoyed it very much. Counting people who stopped buy to pick up their take away goodies, this place is also very popular among locals.More

One of the best sea food at Sur, Oman.The salad,rotis, as accompaniment to the seafood were enjoyed by all of us. Food was fragrant and very tasty and yummy.

Everything was delicious and very satisfying. Place felt like it could've been cleaner (bathroom, food prep, table...)

We were not impressed by this place. It wasn't clean, food was not great, service not friendly and the bill we received was not transparant.

A wide selection of Arabic, Chinese and Indian food, all competently cooked. There were quite a lot of other tourists there when we ate, but Sur does not appear to have many other particularly interesting restaurants.

We were driving back to Muscat and decided to stop in Sur for lunch. It was Friday noon and all eateries were closed. It was a delight when this restaurant was open. 5 of us had egg fried rice, chicken briyani, a grilled fish, mutton...masala, butter chicken with bread and salad, topped with 5 glasses of fresh mango juice and 2 big bottles of water. Service was prompt and food was good. Simple no frills yet tasty. Bill was 12.500 rials which was very reasonable. Happy to revisit when we drop by Sur again in future.More

We saw local Indian people eating at the restaurant and we opted for it. The service was not great though. The shrimps were covered in red sauce and the fish was dry. The bill was way too high for what we got.

The food was good, but red and white tuna tasted the same and dry. The prices were extremely high for oman to eat outside, especially in Indian / Pakistani places. The waiter adviced food without telling the prices and adviced us fresh juices with having...the menues taken away from us already. Later the bill came without single amounts for every dish / food. The price was way higher than we calculated before so we asked him to show the single items with prices. For a small potion of extra rice he calculated 1.2 ORM which is around 2.80 € and on top of that he put another 1.5 ORM just in case. So it was more than 3.50 €. So he wanted to fool us by around 6 € ( minus normal price for the rice). He gave us the 1.5 ORM back but there is still the bad taste about fooling tourists with good belives.More

We have been lost in the city till 2 young omani proposed to help. They recommanded this restaurant. We didn't like the place at first sight but we decided to try. It was crowded and not clean. We liked the grilled fish and less the...seafood. The prices are not expensive.More

We went and tried to get fresh local grilled fish... maybe we had, it maybe not. We couldn't figure it out because the fish(red and white tuna) was drowned in a masala marinade. The lobster he showed us was frozen, but we were promised be...the friendly stuff that they got it yesterday... We tried it and the taste was very poor and some kind of bitter. They boiled it and didn't put it on the grill as expected. At least it was a good and friendly service.More
