Visited here after finding it on trip advisor and wanting to support a veggie restaurant. The place is nothing to rave about and the food did all seem to taste very similar. Decor was a little odd and it felt like a soup kitchen. Not the best veggie food. But there were some lovely salads to eat. The buffet is... More

Olso is a tricky city for vegetarians/vegans and so Vega Fairfood is a most welcome discovery. Oslo is also incredibly expensive, which makes Vega Fairfood even better value being that it is a buffet. Dinner prices are 135 NOK ($20 USD) per person. There's plenty of options to choose from including at least 3 or 4 warm options (such as... More

It's not easy finding good veggie food in Oslo. Vega Fairfood is a real gem: not only does it offer delicious grub, it's also great value for money. For 100 NOK (or 135 NOK if you're visiting for dinner) you can stuff yourself happy with food from the buffet. When we were there, the selection included a delicious chilli, an... More

Here you can pay 12€ for lunch and 16€ for dinner and eat as much as you want. I can assure you that this is a dream in a city like Oslo. You can choose among a salad buffet plus a selection of warm meal: there is always one soup, bread with butter, and then usually rice, potatoes, a curry... More

Being vegan in Oslo was difficult, but Vega Fairfood provided a reasonably priced buffet with many vegan options. Charming place with friendly staff. Apple cake was delicious!

the salad bar is worth going for. out of the very few vegan places this is one of the better ones. good deal for oslo too. the hot food is pretty oily and nothing is labeled - gluten free/vegan etc. the outside seating is nice. the staff basically leaves you alone. Go for lunch not dinner- it closes early and... More

I simply fell in love with this place when I visited it the first time. The perfect choice for a lunch. They serve fresh vegetarian food and drinks from the buffet, with exciting varieties of tasty dishes.

We were struggling a bit for vegetarian and vegan food in Oslo, but this place came up trumps twice and was just round the corner from our hotel. Lacks a bit in atmosphere and quite quiet when we were in, but the food was very nice and affordable. It's a self service all you can eat buffet, and spot on... More

Vega, as the others have said, is a vegan and gluten free restaurant. It is also wicked cheap (100 NOK or lunch, 150 for dinner, I think) - if there was a Peace Corps in Norway this is where they'd be hanging out. I'm not a vegetarian or vegan so IMO it already has an uphill climb. And it didn't... More
