The Yellow Chilli – Panorama Mall

My name is Yasmeen and I am taking over the reviewing section of the Omani Cuisine website.   I am a long time foodie and love to post about my experiences in restaurants in Oman. This is my first review. Bon Appetit!

Located on the first floor of Panorama Mall, The Yellow Chilli (2458 2588- Panorama/ 2454 1717- Al Mouj) is a casual dining Indian restaurant with a twist created by the Indian celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor. The concept as stated by Sanjeev Kapoor is “5 star food at half the price.” There are over 40 of these chain restaurants around the world, as per the menu, with two of them being located in Oman; one at Panorama Mall and the other located at Al Mouj.

Reviews That Were Never Written – Part 1

I’m going to travel in about a week’s time and I won’t be able to write any new reviews for the Omani Cuisine, I have been to many restaurants which I photographed and everything but never got to write a review for – most probably due to some bad time management skills!

Three Star Restaurant, Al Hail

I once wanted to have a post titled ‘Battle of the Generics’ where I thought I’ll post a joint review of all these generic Indian-Chinese restaurants that have the same exact menu that has the name of every single Indian and Chinese dish ever invented. 3 Star was one of these. Not sure if this restaurant is really three star, maybe just 2.5, they have a fountain in their restaurant with plastic frogs inside it. It is located right next to City Center.

Al Aktham Restaurant, Al Khuwair

Al Aktham is the king of generics, it is one of the oldest and most famous restaurants in town, its boardsign boasts with the word ‘Restaurant’ without a brand name. It has private dining rooms used by conservative families and guys taking out girls on dates (.. to al aktham? We’re going on a data to AL AKTHAM?!). This restaurant is found somewhere near Al Safeer Hotel in Al Khuwair Commercial Area.

Grill House, Al Khuwair

Grill House is my favourite generic restaurant, I can have their Schezwan Chicken Fried Rice dish for dinner, lunch and breakfast. Favourite side dishes include a green salad and chips. This restaurant is next to the MQ traffic lights. Their food is nice, but they badly need to work on their restaurant front image!

I used to think that I had photos of Spicy Village as well, can’t find them though. Will make another post with some other restaurants.
