I’ve been to Sichuan before. This is not authentic. Not even close. Dan dan mien was horrific as were the other 5 dishes we ordered. We didn’t even bother taking it home. Sorry. I really wanted to like it. Service was really good though and nice folks.

Sorry. Food was horrible and terribly overpriced. I’ve lived in Sichuan province. This food is bad. Dan dan mien was a joke. Shrimp has way too much cumin. Service was good however. Won’t be back. FYI buffet is only for 4 or more if you want that option.

The food was fabulous. We had their hammour fish (note picture) which was perfectly cooked and was nicely presented. We also had kung poa chicken, home style doufu, kuanxi duck, kuanxi noodles, kuanxi potatoes, chicken dumplings, fried rice with vegetables, sesame balls, fruit platters, tomato fried egg, and Chinese salad with prawns. Each had great flavor, temperature, and presentation. We also decided to try their szechuan chicken since the owner of the restaurant recommended it and they apparently have a new cook who specializes in food from this region. We were not disappointed. Crysanthemum tea was a great compliment to the meal. They also have a few massage chairs, plenty of kids high chairs, and a small play room for kids. It's a nice place to bring friends, family, or business clients, and has sufficient parking.

A friend took us here today and we were blown away. Reading the reviews here we weren't expecting much but the restaurant has recently hired a new chef from Sichuan, China and they have changed up the menu. No longer is it just a simple Chinese buffet restaurant! We had some amazing beef soup noodles and our friends enjoyed some spicy seafood (prawns, crab etc).

This restaurant opened in January, so if you haven't been back here recently I suggest you come here and see for yourself.

The food is absolutely authentic Chinese. Ingredients are top quality and the restaurant is clean with a kids play area and high-end massage chairs near the entrance. Price is reasonable. We paid around 33 OMR for 4 adults and 4 small children.

The couple who owns the place (Lebanese gentleman and his wife from Sichuan, China) are extremely hospitable and dedicated, always at the restaurant, and making every effort to ensure customer satisfaction.

So if you ever find yourself in Muscat, and craving real authentic Chinese/Sichuanese food, you won't be disappointed with Kuanxi!

Last Friday, we celebrated a family occasion in the Kunaxi restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The manager personally supervised the table.
A hot-pot and barbecue heaters are parts of the table, to be honest a new experience in Muscat. Food was excellent: Shrimps, chicken, beef, lamb, noodles, fried vegetables rice, rice, steamed vegetables, sweet & sour chicken and Fishes. One sweet dish and a bottle of soft drink were provided as gifts for our special occasion which was deeply appreciate it. Watermelon and coffee have been served at the end
The only bad issue was the smell of the barbecue stuck on our clothes.
The price was reasonable compared to the amount of served food.
