Indian, Chinese and Continental dishes are on the menu at Spicy Village in Nizwa. It is part of a small chain of restaurants with branches in Ruwi, Rusayl, Sohar, and Al-Khuwair.
The Nizwa restaurant was very basic but very clean, with speedy service and full of happy customers, many of which work for various construction companies in the area. It is more like a canteen than a restaurant, but the food is delicious and there are obviously many regulars who come on a daily basis.
This is definitely non-tourist food--big portions, fresh ingredients, and spicy like the locals like it!
Favorite Dish: Anything with curry and the bread is fresh, hot, and tasty. It's just like home cooking (in India). Reminds me of food I've had at a friend's house in Delhi.
The evening poolside buffet at the Falaj Daris Hotel is very good because of the delicious food and the very nice embiance of the surroundings. This is a must try if you are in Nizwa and will cost you about 4-5 Omani rials per person.
