Turkish House Restaurant

This restaurant's extensive menu is not limited to Turkish cuisine alone, and features some of the finest seafood dishes around. Another highlight here is the bread - freshly baked and served warm straight out of the oven. The restaurant is highly popular with patrons - reservations recommended.

Dining

Omani cuisine is halal meat-dominated, with Arabian and Indian influences easily traceable. Some of the typical local dishes include grilled meats, shwarma, and biryani. Muscat's seaside location makes for a heavy emphasis on seafood in local cuisine as well. Restaurants in Muscat are often located on hotel premises and cater primarily to expats and tourists (most locals favour cafes over fine dining). The variety of cuisine choices, however, is certainly impressive and ranges from traditional Omani to Indian, Pakistani, European, and Asian.
