Shiraz Restaurant

Location: Lobby Level
Serves: Lunch, Dinner
The only authentic fine dining Persian Restaurant in the Sultanate of Oman. Feel the warmth of Iranian hospitality at Muscat’s finest regional restaurant, Shiraz. The experienced Iranian Master Chef has created a delectable Persian menu that includes classic dishes that are steeped in centuries of culinary artistry. This much awarded restaurant enjoys a reputation of impeccable excellence throughout Oman. Besides the indoor air-conditioned seating, the guests can also choose to use the outdoor terrace seating overlooking the pool, to dine in.
The dinner we were privileged to be hosted to, had a few standout dishes, that deserve a special mention here. The flavour of the Alborz mountains was experienced in that exquisite grilled minced lamb ‘Kebab Kubideh’ that Iranian Master Chef Mahdi created for us that night. The Shiraz favourite saffron-infused, lemon marinated grilled melt-in-the-mouth chicken ‘Joojeh Kebab’ that followed was simply divine. Finally that sublime ‘Makhlout’ pairing of two frozen Persian delights - ‘Bastani’ and ‘Fallodeh’ in one bowl, was just the perfect ending to an experience, I shall remember for a long time. It was the perfect marriage of the Bastani- saffron-flavoured ice-cream, scented with rosewater and studded with pistachios and Faloodeh, a subtle rosewater sherbet incorporating delicate vermicelli noodles, which imparted an amazing hitherto un-experienced mouth feel, with that unforgettable blend of delightful flavours.

A Room With Spectacular Views

The stay here was made all the more memorable because of the wonderful sunsets we occasioned to witness, from the privacy of our room. That premium required to be paid for a sea-view room, is definitely worth it.
The sights that one bears witness to from the comfort of one’s bed is amazing. Aside of the sunsets, the day-view without lights and the night-view with the static and moving automobile lights, of the Al Shatti Street that runs long the Qurm Beach is extremely fascinating.
This is one promenade that has a kaleidoscopic character which will never ceases to astound its beholder. Finally, I must admit the clincher was the friendly, ever-helpful and obliging staff with their genuine concern for your welfare, that was something I found extremely endearing about my experience here.
I feel this human element, central location and the sunset views, could easily be the many reasons why, this will be the one place that any traveler who has experienced it once, will find difficult not to revisit, only because there aren’t any better experiences constructed yet, which could dislodge Crowne Plaza, from its current perch of invincible supremacy. A trip to Muscat will be deemed incomplete, without a stay at Crowne Plaza Muscat.
