Good food, slow service

Two families including youth and children enjoyed a good dinner. Personally I tried the sushi which I would give top score. However,some other dishes were good but not given top score. A bit slow follow up from the waiter and/or kitchen made it miss the final star. But do try the sushi!

I was alone so they didn't give me a table... They let me have a seat at the sushi bar.. I had mixed sushi, it was fairly good, not too bad but nothing to remember. I would say ordinary.. I asked for a glass of white wine, they brought the house one but it was awful. They changed it with... More

Very good meal the serving were very generous and very tasty, one thing I liked was you did not have to order rice or noddles. Both came with your dishes. The sushi looked lovely but we did not try it. Jasmine tea was a bit of a struggle as Norwegian staff did not understand they should top up with hot... More

Most important? They brought the wrong food. Twice. (Someone buy the waiter a notepad.) And they made us pay not for what we'd ordered, but for what they brought - and no, they didn't even offer to exchange it. (That wasn't too bad; we don't like wasting food. But I really didn't want to pay for expensive options we hadn't... More

Consider that this is not a tipical norvegian cuisine, but ethnic restaurant, so be ready to read on the menu dishes like sushi, tempura and dim sum. We took a combo dish, with salmon, halibut, dim sum and dessert (a delicious and tasty cheese cake), all for around 50€ each. Don't forget that you are going to stay in the... More

Friendly waitress I had a good dinner. (English menu). I was there 2 times during my stay in Tromso. They have a extensive menu, not only Chinees.

I went there because I came with a night flight and not many restaurant were opened at that time. The restaurant has a nice view if you get the seat next to the water. However the food was average if not below. I tried Tom Yum which was not very Thai and the sushi which was not very Japanese. The... More

We had lunch here and although the staff are not overly friendly (maybe language or cultural) the service was very efficient. Good was nicely presented and of good quality. It is expensive to dine in Norway, but in stead of buying a cheap, low quality meal, for a few more NOK you Cana really good meal like what they serve... More
