The Restaurant at Crowne Plaza Sohar

Reviewed By Mohsin A

The restaurant st crown plaza in on the ground floor. The decor is good. The good was also good with wide selection of vegetarian and non vegetarian food. The staff particularly mizaan was very polite and prompt. Since the hotel is far from city this is good choice for those staying at the hotel or having work in industrial area. Bit out of way from sohar centre.

Reviewed By Jessica S - Taipei, Taiwan

We ordered an arabic salad, soup, and rice/chicken combo. The food was good but the flavors were quite strong. The salad was great but the dressing was very tart. Overall, it was a positive experience. I've found other Lebanese places that I would opt to go to before this one but overall it was good. Would recommend!

Zaeem Delicious Foods

Zaeem Foods is a fine dining restaurant located in the port city of Sohar, Sultanate of Oman. We are a multi-cuisine restaurant serving Mughlai, Tandoori and Chinese food including selected Continental and Arabic delights. We specialize in Hyderabadi cuisine and serve some of its most popular delicacies. Zaeem Foods made a silent entry into Sohar during the time the commercial port operation was being shifted from Muscat to Sohar. Zaeem Foods opened its doors on the 18th of May, 2014 and since then we have made steady inroads into the hearts of the locals and residents of Sohar alike and also of those transiting to and from Dubai and Buraimi. While we look forward to welcoming you at Zaeem Foods, we shall constantly endeavor to serve you with; healthy, hygienic and delicious food. Welcome to Zaeem Foods...So many occasions, One great place to celebrate!

Zaeem has many good points.... it’s location is strategic, the food is delicious, service is excellent, the ambience is understated and no-nonsense, the Seating plans are functional and there is car parking. We went for the Friday buffet and it was very good. Vegetarians have a decent choice too.
Weekends are crowded , so plan to go in time, we reached by 1230pm-especially if you want the sumptuous buffet as it gets over soon.
Overall the cost was reasonable considering we had eaten in probably the best restaurant in Sohar, which has limited options for fine dining food, especially NON South Indian food,
Will definitely plan to go again.

Chulha

An Indian food concept that relies on total freshness, traditional recipes with an exquisite taste in modern stylish surroundings. It is a combination of history with authenticity to present a timeless gastronomy experience for the customers.

Among the thousand of cheap and low quality Indian restaurant in the Middle East this one is a less expensive option to get real Indian food like served in high end restaurants. Having visited India multiple times trust me that this is a recommended place to get those truly amazing tastes.

The Dhow Marina Restaurant

Reviewed By TheRealKhairy - Cairo, Egypt

While going for a drive on Sohar's beach we came along Dhow Marina and thought we would stop over for lunch.
Located in the fishing village, Dhow Marina serves the catch of the day and as such offers very fresh seafood although the flip-side to that is that not everything you want will be available.
The Seating area itself is OK, however given that you are super close to the sea but don't have a sea view while having lunch is quite odd / disappointing - at best you will get a view of the parking lot.
The salads are very basic and clearly show that they are homemade :) However the seafood was perfect and clearly fresh bursting with flavor!
Probably the only thing we didn't appreciate was the curry that was added to our crab since we weren't in the mood for Indian.
What we liked:
*fresh seafood
*reasonable prices
What we disliked:
*no sea view
*curry was added to crabs for no reason
*credit cards aren't accepted (however they accept AED as well as OMR)

The Steakhouse

Reviewed By Steve O - Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Enjoyed dinner while staying at the Crowne Plaza recently, enjoyed a delicious Wagyu Beef Striploin which was done to perfection with a delectable accompanying Whiskey Cream Sauce. The menu has a great selection of steaks from 3 different countries (US, Australia and South Africa) providing the best cuts available!!!
Service is good although I think they may struggle a bit if it gets busy.
One let down was the roast vegetables provided as a side - they were not that appetising. Other than that, a great meal albeit a tad pricey

Inspite of repeating the word VEGETARIAN three times while ordering Hot and Sour Soup the chef goofed up and delivered with Egg.
So got frustrated and disappointed and asked for a refund. There was no remorse on their face while handing over the refund but yes apology was expressed verbally.

Good for a quick breakfast for a business traveller, or for a small, light dinner. Selection is small, but it was clean and reasonable quality. Service ... well ... it is a lot of self service.Dear Sir / Madame, Thank you for your kind review. I hope you visit us again, and when it happens, please let me know. Regards, Agata
