This was the best meal of our entire trip, period. We came to the unassuming place after searching TA for places to eat in Nizwa. The server was really polite and made small talk with us, before recommending us to try the rice with fish,...chicken and lamb. The crispy fish was so light and yummy, the lamb was juicy and tender. The chicken was alright. The rice was very fragrant and delicious. We came back another time and ordered the special grilled meat platter. It was simply heavenly, every type of meat on the platter tasted delicious, we ordered a side of the fish from the first day as well. Best place ever, please visit if you're in Nizwa, you will not regret it.More
We ate dinner here last September with family. It was our first time here and tried our friends' recommendations from the menu. The restaurant looks so clean. Good food and large servings. Affordable too. I noticed that the waiter who's in-charged in cleaning the other...table was also the one serving the food without washing his hands first. That was not good. The restaurant was not busy that time.More
There is not that much choice in Nizwa but we found this one to be authentic, clean and to have very good food. The plate with rice and chicken is really good and tasty. Portions are big as well and the prices in the end...very cheap.More
If you stay at the Al-Diyar (which actually is quite recommendable) and are too tired to drive into Nizwa town, the restaurant is a good option. You can even sit outside on a small terrace overlooking the parking lot. The food is decent (the usual...arab/indian menu), service is very friendly and the prices are a little higher than in town, but still acceptable.More
There is no way on earth this place deserves any mention on TripAdvisor. It's completely forgettable. After discovering (like many others) that the TripAdvisor location is way off, we finally made it here.
We walked in to an overpowering smell of cooked fish that wasn't...exactly enticing for vegetarians seeking a restaurant described as "vegetarian friendly." That was quickly remedied by the staff overwhelming us by burning vast quantities of fragrant oud and then spraying disinfectant everywhere.
The atmosphere wasn't improved by them having the Quranic recitation channel on the TV either. I've lived 10 years in the Middle East and so I'm no stranger to Islam, but whatever your religious beliefs, it's very unlikely you'll make this your chosen background for meal with family or friends.
So, we turned to the menu expecting to see a nice selection of vegetarian options. Apart from a veg curry and veg fried rice, there were almost no other hot vegetarian choices. We didn't want to try a salad after reading other comments here.
The food was totally forgettable. Adequate but, for a restaurant rated this highly on this site, it was very very disappointing.
There HAS to be better than this in a town the size of Nizwa.More
At first we sat inside all by ourselves in a room that lacked atmosphere. We found out that they also had a terrace. It's situated along a busy road, but it's a little bit better than the dining room inside.
The food was well seasoned...and well prepared. We especially liked the yoghurt salad.
Staff is not very friendly or attentive. They do as little as possible.
Prices are low.More
