Marhaba to Oman from the Almaani family! We are a close knit, Omani family who resides in Old Muscat, next to Kalbuh Park, on the Mutrah corniche. This picturesque area of Old Muscat is surrounded by remnants of Omani forts, towering mountains, directly on the beautiful coastline. Our beloved home belonged to our grandfather and has been carried down to the current generation. We still remember the days where we used to use our boats to get to what is now known as Mutrah Souq. The historical preservation of our family’s journey and culture is through the stories and tales we will share during the food experience. We welcome you to join our outdoor majlis where you can enjoy our traditional Omani dishes made from generations of family handed down recipes. The dinner will include an explanation of how generations before us lived off the land, preserving natural resources for food, medicine and beauty. Below is a sample menu of the buffet. We welcome you to join our family dinner – come and let us show you the true meaning of Omani hospitality!
Note: We can offer Henna upon request, however, there will be additional charges.
