You know what you are getting with TGIF but don't expect to wait 45 minutes for it. Still, at rush hour in high season they always have a queue so maybe they don't have to try too hard.

TGI Friday's is right on Karl Johan road. It is 100m away from the royal palace. It provides both indoor and outdoor seating. Faces a green stretch - so great to sit out on a sunny day - looking out on a tree lined green area. Food is typical american fare - burgers, pasta, salads, sandwiches - drinks . Helpings... More

Worst burgers in Norway, I had their Friday Burger - their specialty. It was luke warm to cold with no flavour, on par with MacDonalds burgers. This is not a compliment. My husband had the chilli cheese and couldn't taste the cheese until the centre. Chilli was flavourless and no spice as well as being cold. Just to top off... More

Monday with all the good ones suggested by Trip Advisor, we decided to go to the Main Street. It is quite late even for Oslo: 21:45. They advise from the reception that they only had burgers and salad. Ok for us! The issue is that we waited 30 minutes. They didn't even give us the cutlery and the second glass... More

We were here for lunch. From order to the food was on the table it took more than 40 minutes. The excuse to us was that the chicken took some time. To the table next to us, the excuse was the fish... The burger was OK, but the salad with chicken was terrible. Probably the pice of chicken had been... More

Stopped here for a few (expensive) drinks. Very busy, very noisy, just like any other TGI's around the world. Not impressed.

We arrived for "lunch" at 1400 and didn't receive our food until 1515. It was "ok" and really not worth the price, but we were hungry and we ate it. The location was excellent and we sat outside along the King Johan. A couple of beggers pestered us.

Went to Oslo town for a meal and enjoying the nice weather. They where out of chicken fingers, ended up eating The Fridays burger. Unfortenately, the burger was not as warm as expected, and I did not have the time to complain. But the taste and the new bread they use is good. Also I know I have tasted better... More

We had a late dinner here (about 9 pm). The waiting time was way too long. The waitress was really really nice though, very open and sweet, it wasn't really her fault. The place was crowded. The food is ok, but not stunning and the portions are huge for my taste. I must also say I think it was overpriced.... More
