Asian Fusion - Great for a special occasion

Went here for an anniversary dinner with my partner and had been quite late to get a booking so had to sit at the bar. Was a bit skeptical that we wouldn't be able to have a conversation and it may be cramped. It wasn't. We had a fantastic Swedish waitress at the bar that was both attentive... read more

Plah has been rewarded with 2 forks and knives in the Michelin guide some years ago (not sure if they still are), and therefore I had somewhat expectations before my visit. Although I´ve read reviews that says the waiters are rushing customers about how long they´re allowed to use the table, I kind of hoped they would´t do it to... More

I had been there before, and although it was several years ago, my memory of the restaurant was of an excellent and modern Thai restaurant. I remember being pleasantly surprised. This time I was also surprised – but in a negative way. We went for the five-course Menu of the day. The restaurant describes the menu as a celebration dinner.... More

Very nice restaurant with great food. We went for the 5 course meal, and it was delicious!! The fish and the meat was amazing. We also had the complementary wine menu, which worked perfectly. They were generous on the wine, so we didn't even finish all of it..! All in all, a very pleasant experience, and the prices aren't that... More

Don't get me wrong, this place has it's merits. I'd recommend you try it. Thai flavours, creative riffs. Some really excellent items in the tasting menu. I like the sausage appetiser, and the pork belly was a very nice combo of crispy and meaty textures, offset by Thai flavours. The desserts are nothing special, though, and the fish course was...

I love Thai food, I cook it a lot at home and would always consider Thai food for a night out. However, Plah was different, it was a new experience of Thai flavours and ingredients I hadn't had before that were a pure delight. The Sea Urchin appetiser for example was amazing. I found the service to be excellent and... More

Central and quiet location in Oslo. Very friendly staff who gave you top service. The different courses took a bit time, can be understood as it was packed with people. The food was very good and nicely presented. The wine list was suited for the menu. Must be the best assortment of Riesling I have seen in a restaurent.

We went for the 9 course meal and added the wine menu as well. Everything was amazingly tasty. Very professional service. The decor of the restaurant could maybe be improved.
