Resturant recommendations in Muscat

I will be in Muscat in September. I would really like some recommendations for good reasonably priced clean resturants for dinner and/ or lunch. Omani food wanted but other recommendations welcomed. Walking distance to The Chedi and other recommendations for walking distance near Raddison Blu diplomatic area. Budget for lunch 5-6 OMR each and Dinner budget 10 OMR each.

Really want to hear from you if you can recommend walking distance resturants for lunch or dinner from The Chedi

Thanks guys.

When you are in chedi Muscat, please check with hotel staff for budget dining options. I believe within 1 km walk from chedi there are reasonably priced restaurants. Don't worry. Not reccomend to walk in the day time due to hot climate.

Thank you. I really want to try local food and support local resturants and see the culture.

I hear their is a heavy Asian influence in food choices. I will do that when I go to Asia... for now it is Omani food.

I have heard the food is lovely at the Chedi and I will try it but I've also heard the prices are way over the top.

I saw a old post someone saying that there is a small resturant unconnectedvwith the Chedi just over their waterbreak by their beach wall but i cannot seem to find further details.

Thanks for your input.

If you use the "Restaurants" link in the top toolbar you can use the criteria to narrow your choice and to search for price,food style and location and all the reviews pop up.

Chedi is totally over the top-expect £100 per head for a decent meal with drinks...

Head west on Chedi beach, climb over breakwater (assuming they have not made it higher), walk along road to restaurants near the mosque. You can sit outside on plastic seats at plastic tables, so don't expect haute cuisine. I'm not sure what you expect as "Omani cuisine" but you could try Kargeen in Medinat Qaboos.

I second Kargeen.

We went upon recommendation and it did not disappoint.

We did have trouble finding it. So if you drive or walk there just know that it sits behind the shops, so be sure to walk right around.

My sister and I and another couple there as well had trouble searching for it. Maybe it was just us.

Within 5 riyal budget lunch for Imani food near chedi, ask some local working in the chedi for Arab world restaurant in gubrah. It's within 2 km from chedi. Tryout a delicacy called lamb shua with rice. Hope you will like. Per head cost would be around 3 riyals.

Kargen is good option for dinner and per head cost would be less than 10 riyals. To get there: take an orange taxi, and request them to take you to this restaurant in madinat qaboos or MQ. Don't pay more than riyal 5
