Arab World Restaurant Al Ghubrah
Lunch is one great time of the day. Our picky friend did not want to go anywhere else than to a Mandi place. We were close to Ghubra so went to Arab World Restaurant opposite to Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex.
The restaurant has a strong rice smell once you are in. There are only 6 tables with 4 seats each but who wants to sit on tables and chairs where there are several booths for seating on the ground and eating like traditional Arabs. We went upstairs and sat in the booth number 10.
Waited for 5 mins and waiter was there to take the order. We ordered Mandi with Shuwa mutton and hummous with special Yemani bread and mutton.
Soup with Salad came in with in 3 mins. Its important to notice the soup and salad is complementary. We still were having the soup and food was in. The taste of food there is delicious. No one the restaurant is packed with people. The bread was freshly made, hamous was out of fridge, rice and mutton and soup were bot. These people prepare food daily especially lunch so everything is fresh and tasty. Especially goat is slaughtered a day before cooking so everything is fresh.
After eating rice and all with hands its important to wash the hands. The hand wash facility is not the best you will see there as well the cleanliness of the coridore. The seating booth are clean enough to eat and leave.
The whole 3 meals for 4 of us cost 9.2 rials with 4 Mountain Dew.
