Time Out Says
We eventually had to admit defeat; the olive list simply doesn’t exist. What does exist is a pleasant, family style restaurant, brightly decorated with lime green and yellow furniture and booth-style seating upstairs where you can take your pick from a lunchtime buffet (or choose from a mammoth international menu). It’s cheap and cheerful – the most expensive dish is QR35. And if you like south-Indian food we can heartily recommend the fish molee – a spicy, tasty fish curry garnished with fresh tomatoes and green peppers, perfectly mopped up with some chapatti bread.
For the sake of experiment, we ordered something Arabic, choosing a fattoush salad. Imagine how dumbfounded we were when, scattered among the peppers, tomatoes and red onion, we spotted a smattering of green olives! We don’t mean to give Olive a bad rap – the dining experience was pleasant enough – but the elusive olive list debacle? We’re still chuckling about it now.
