We came here for lunch during the week and found the location to be inviting. The food was nothing special, with the fish of the day overcooked. Service is very friendly, so we enjoyed our time - but wouldn't come back (for the food).

Kargeen

An elegant ambience with ethnic interiors, serving delectable home made cuisine; take you back in to living in vintage Omani culture. Choose a whole new experience of a beautiful candle light dinner on the lawns, accompanied by myriad stars or a cozy meal

Reviewed By Myriamelias

Kargeen has a great ambiance, just make sure you are sitting outside (when the weather allows it) it gives you that Arabic experience, their service most of the time isn't amazing/slow but the food is good. Try Kargeen bread it's a specialty. Their menu is wide from pizza to Omani food.

We popped into this restaurant during our visit to the National Museum, it's part of the same complex. They offered a good selection of Omani dishes, and the prices were reasonable. We really enjoyed the Shuwa. The waiters couldn't do enough to make sure we had everything we needed, service was prompt, attentive, friendly and efficient.
