S&H Chocolate Lounge – Al Khuwair

S&H Chocolate Lounge (Telephone 96581941 – Map) is a new local chocolate cafe started by my good friends Salman and Hamza Al Lawati. S&H Chocolate Lounge is located in Al Khuwair somewhere behind Ibis Hotel in the same building as OMNEIC (facing the main entrance of Muscat Holiday). The sign of the restaurant does not directly face the road, but it is quiet easy to find.

S&H Chocolate Lounge has a spacious nice modern seating area. The place still remains relatively undiscovered, when I came on a weekday evening last month the place was quiet with only two other tables occupied.

S&H Chocolate Lounge is primarily a chocolate dessert cafe, but in addition to their crepes, waffles, and chocolate desserts, they also serve sandwiches, paninis, salads, and savoury crepes and waffles. Chocolate Lounge also offers a variety of truffles and chocolates that may be ordered on a plate or sold in weighed boxes.

I was there for dinner, so I ordered a Classic Club Sandwich (RO 2.500) from the sandwiches section of the menu which came with Sohar crisps. I really enjoyed my sandwich and thought the Sohar crisps were a fun replacement for fries.

We had a really tough time picking the dessert to have cause everything on that section seemed delicious. We ended up having a fondue (RO 5.000) which came with slices of  with slices of bananas, strawberries, and kiwis, marshmallows and waffle bites. I found the chocolate great and the fruits quite fresh.

I got to try many other things at Chocolate Lounge including a variety of truffles (pictured above) and chocolate shots (not pictured) both of which were great.


I cannot remember exactly how much the food cost because I cannot find the receipt I took at the time of writing, but I remember that I found the prices at Chocolate Lounge extremely cheap in comparison to other cafes in the same class.

I enjoyed my visit to Chocolate Lounge, the food and desserts were great and the service was excellent.

Have you guys been to S&H Chocolate Lounge? What do you think of it?

    Nice quiet place

  • Saina

    If you had to compare it with Glaciers, how would you fare it. It’s an amazing place but I’d go to Glaciers, if I had a choice.

  • Hatim

    I believe this nice place for breakfast and drinking coffee. However its is the best place for chocolate lovers

    However this place has lacks ventilation system

  • Wkaar

    The place is really quiet. caesar salad and turky panne was awful but I love the fondue so much. The prices was higher than expected, specially for fondue.
    I don’t think that I will go there again

    Thank you dear Wkaar for your feedback. with all do respect to your feedback, we believe as many other customers that our prices are very competitve. we serve you 5 side dishes with the fondue, plus the chocolate used in our fondue is 100% melted belgian chocolate with 0% of cream. Re the caesar salad and turkey panini we totally respect your opinion and we believe that people tastes differs, many of our customers liked our caesar salad and it is the fastest moving salad on our menu, yet we do accept that some might not like this particular recipe. Our place as any other restaurant or cafe , could get quiet sometimes and very crowd on other. This is very normal in a small market like Oman. Thanks for sharing your feedback and for any more technical feedback about our food recipes, fee free to send us an email on hamza@snhchoco.com

    There is always a room for improvement and we will always keep improving :)

    Kind regards

I will definitely come back to try other food in their menu and also the truffles… :-)
