Restaurants in Muscat

International restaurants reside in Muscat's smart hotels including seafood specialist The Beach Restaurant, at The Chedi Hotel. Thanks to Oman's trading ties with the Indian subcontinent, curry houses abound throughout the city. The spicy northern Indian cuisine of Muttrah's Mumtaz Mahal leads the way. Affordable restaurants producing Omani kebabs cluster in Al Khuwair, while Western fast-food outlets crowd the malls. Last orders are around 11pm. A tip of 15% should be added to the bill.
