“Seafood House”

If you do visit or live in Muscat (the Capital city in Oman) and haven’t been to the “The Turkish House Restaurant”, then you have not really explored the city. (Oh! this is not an advert, am just been real).

The talk about this restaurant from people of different nationalities would make even a person that hates to explore try it out.

As the name of the restaurant implies, the restaurant is been managed by a Turk …I never knew the Turks were this good with Seafood (Maybe I have to start thinking of visiting Istanbul). 

The restaurant is located in Al Khuwair and is not far from the Radisson Blu Hotel. Although the restaurant operates both day and night, but the best time to locate the restaurant if you are a first timer, is at night. You can’t miss the name of the restaurant wriiten in both English and Arabic with the blue light around it.

You have the option of eating in the restaurant or call to make an order, and then 15 minutes later, you go to the restaurant to pick it up. But last night we (my hubby and I) decided to eat in.

As usual, the appetizer is Turkish flat bread and humus (wooh!!! the bread is irresistible …and they always make sure you have enough of it).

For the main course, whenever I am in this restaurant, I don’t have to look at the menu  (despite it being simple) because I am always in for the seafood, and they have never disappointed me. 

You have the option of choosing the fish yourself (that feeling of the Nigerian “point and kill” restaurants winks …but in this place the fishes are not alive). 

So Last night as usual, we had grilled prawns and fish.

Please don’t ask me, How many people are going to eat that? …hahaha!

So you see why, when I think of ‘Seafood’, I think of the ‘Turkish House Restaurant’ …they call it the Turkish House Restaurant, but I call it the “Seafood House”.

    Oh my, those grilled prawns look amazing!

    I visited the Turkish house a couple of months ago and hated it, even though people rave about it. Maybe I will give it one last chance after seeing your pictures 😉

      Aww! Sorry I am replying late …I actually just saw your comment and don’t why I didn’t see it before now.

      I just read your post on Turkish house …maybe it’s because you had the chicken kebab (I haven’t tried it there and with your post, I won’t try it …haha!) but as regards seafood, so far, they are the best I have tried out in Muscat.
