Muscat’s most celebrated Chinese restaurant is back for the winter season at Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Honoring the art of fine Asian cuisine, the award-winning China Mood is once again welcoming guests with an enhanced menu created by the hotel’s hand-picked expert chefs.

World-class gastronomy, stunning surroundings, and theatrical ceremony put this restaurant high on the season’s must-do list.

“We’re delighted to be opening our doors once again and welcome our guests with renewed passion. Our menus offer the finest and freshest ingredients which we prepare using traditional Chinese methods of cooking, paying homage to the richness and diversity of a cuisine that dates back thousands of years.
