TGIF - always busy and noisy

Plan your meal to be there on Friday so that you can get your Friday value meal at half price. A good hang out place, food is ok, your average safe American burger but why would you want American food when you are in Norway.

The servers were inattentive, the menu they had out was old (and they didn't honor the price that was listed on there), and I had to ask numerous times for utensils. Extremely expensive (expect to pay a minimum of 200 NOK for just about anything). There's a Hard Rock down the road, it's equally expensive, but you'll be treated better.

At ordering I asked to replace the coleslaw with another type of salad. This was not possible, but she could sell me a Caesar salad if I pleased so. I did not no!!! First time in... More

I'm sad I spent so much on a soggy burger. For the price, that burger could have been a lot better. Wouldn't go there again to eat. The only thing that really made it a good visit, was the waiter, Tom, that gave excellent service.

Nothing to write home about. Its a TGIF (they are all over Oslo). Not all that good beer and not all that good food. Customer service is great, however.

Visited here for a late lunch/early dinner tonight. They do a 2 course for 209kr or 3 course for 269kr Sunday to Thursday, which is good value for norway! Food was nice enough but not piping hot, service was a little chaotic, ie our mains arriving while the dirty starter dishes were still on the table. Overall a good choice... More

I love everything on the menu, BUT the staff is often very "busy", so it ALWAYS takes a very long time before we get seated, before we get the menu, before we get our food and before we get to pay. This has happened both when the restaurant is almost empty and when it was more crowded. Such a shame.... More
