Grand Fish Restaurant

We had a meal at the Grand Fish Restaurant near Muscat City Centre. It’s clearly a popular place, as mid-week all indoor tables were full and doubtless if it wasnt for the rain the outside ones would have been used as well. Sticking to its theme we had Fish Soup and Prawn Soup followed by Seafood with Rice and Hamour with Chips.
