While hamburgers may not be the most typically Omani dish, the innovative nature of each one on the menu being ‘miniature’ is enough to make this burger joint a cut above. The idea of a sushi conveyor belt is used for this American specialty, and Slider Station’s hungry clientele can choose from a fantastic array of ‘sliders’. This Kuwaiti franchise also offers highly addictive gooey chocolate desserts.
Bin Ateeq is a fine compromise between authentic cuisine, Omani hospitality and accessible dishes for visitors from all over the world. The most notable authentic feature is the floor-level seating, with exquisitely colored and patterned Majlis cushions, from which guests can try mutton magbous, halva and harees (cracked wheat with meat).

The strongest Turkish presence in Muscat can be felt at Grand Lounge, where Turkish flatbreads, pides, kebabs and yoghurt toppings are served up in an impressively large restaurant capable of catering for innumerable crowds on any night of the week. The obligatory Turkish coffee in ornate silver cups is a welcome finish to a meal in the stifling heat of the Omani desert city.
