Review of Amaranthai

Amaranthai
Ranked #3 of 30 Restaurants in Sohar
Price range: US$13 - US$31
Description: Amaranthai serves Thai food with a Chinese twist, a 'fusion' creating a fresh blend of Asian cuisine. Enjoy the view and fresh sea breeze while dinning on the terrace, and linger over a tropical cocktail or an Asian beverage as you soak in the ambiance.

I was there for a work meeting and opted for the salad lunch buffet. Everything was great! The breads were fresh, desserts were decadent, and the atmosphere lovely.

Very good Thai food in a great setting - outside sitting and overlooking the beach and sea. Service perhaps a little slow. I was keen to have dessert but the waitress was so slow in coming back with menus after the main course that I eventually gave it a miss. Pleasant enough to return though.

Lovely, authentic Thai. Beautiful outdoor setting. Reasonable wine list (for Sohar!). The service is good but can be a little overbearing sometimes. Have visited twice and was happy both times.

Considering this is Oman and not only, it's rural Oman - the Thai food was good.

Huge menu. Lots of authentic Thai cuisine to order from. But primarily southern Thai cuisine. Not northern.

The service was not that good. I asked for chopped chilli on the side, but the waiter forgot to bring it. Despite the restaurant being fairly empty.

The chef is apparently Thai as well. I asked.

Somehow it felt one or two key ingredients were missing. I think Palm sugar missing.
But still, nonetheless very good.

I did ask for the food to be spicy. In fact, I further confirmed this by explicitly saying 'Thai spicy' but the food came barely spicy.

The restaurant is adjacent to the pool area and directly on the beach. It was lovely dining on the terrace outdoors with the waves splashing in the background.

Very romantic setting as well.

Plz give this review a thumbs up
