“Great surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We visited Atelier Asian Tapas on a Tuesday afternoon, the restaurant was busy. We ordered 4 different dishes and brought them to some tables in Mathallen and ate them there. What we tried was the Fois gras, the Spare ribs, Sea scallops and the Scampi. Everything was excellent. The scallop was to die for. Can't comment on service other then ordering and reciving food, but staff was friendly and food came fast. Can't wait to go back.

“Cold, slow and unfriendly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We had a lot of dishes who we shared. All of them tasted like they came from the fridge. Non of the dishes where seasoned either. All in all tasteless.

The service was poor. Ordering at the desk is ok, but its not ok when four people behind the desk is too "busy" to take your order. One is checking her cellphone, one is talking in the cellphone, one is standing with the back against the desk and the last one is just checking out the bar.

We ask for the drink menu. They dont have a drink menu, but I can just say what I wish. I wiah for some sparkeling wine. They dont now if they have som sparkeling wine. I ask for a pepsi max. We get some water at the table, my pepsi max doesnt show up. And the waiters are to busy to serve me. The pepsi max is showing on the bill.

The good thing is that the tasteless Food come cheap. Cheap is what you get.

“Delicious fusion Vietnamese-French tapas bar!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

This tapas bas is a little gem! Indeed it is a small place but most definitely worth it!
I have had some fried foie gras (French) with caramelized apples and some other sauce (sweet too). That was delicious!!! And then I have had a more Vietnamese dish, grilled chicken with some veggies and chili sauce. Also very good!
The staff is very nice and there is at least one French waiter/cook :-)

“Great food in Mathallen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Stayed in Oslo for the weekebd and the best food we had was the lovely vietnamese food in Atelier Asian tapas. We had all the small dishes on the menu except the tuna and they were all great.
Also the desserts were ok, especially the coffee pudding.
The only less good thing was the loud music from the neighbour bar.

“One of the kind Asian tapas in the heart of Oslo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

My family/friends and I have been to Atelier several times and we enjoy every visit. It is the crispy and authentic made Vietnamese springrolls, the tender entrecôte, the tasty mussels and scallops that make we come back. All the dishes are well seasoned and nicely presented, and the restaurant's decoration reminds us of having a quick meal in one of the many markets in Saigon.

Either you are local people or tourist, and would like to experience something difference and that is good at the same time. You just can't miss Atelier Asian Tapas in Mathallen. :D
