Description: Dinner Restaurant has served food from our Szechuan and Cantonese kitchen in the heart of Oslo since 1989 and are proud to continue offering our guests an exciting journey through Chinese food culture. Traditionally, the Chinese meal consists of many different dishes that are shared between guests at the table in order to create a more social dynamic around the meal time. Our menu is structured in such a way that this style of eating is possible with us. Please ask your waiter if you would like to know more about the dishes and produce used. We would also like to share that all of Dim Sum is made here in the restaurant and the Mango Pudding is still made by the same cook that made it back in 1989.

“Good but too sweet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Quick service even when crowded. Food is a mix between East and West. Really good compositions but somewhat too sweet. You get your money's worth. This is a special restaurant experience although you can get even more exciting food in Oslo.

“Excellent food, but busy service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Dinner is one of the best asian restaurants in Oslo. The premises is elegant but feels a bit crowded - and is always full. The food is really good, and so is the service, I just sometimes had the feeling that it should have been one more waiter in service. But aside from that the waiters are friendly og sharp and gives you a good experience.

“Not quite as expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I've been there before and had a wow! experience. This time...? Hmm...the items on my plate more or less all tasted the same. I had crispy duck which was presented in the menue as slices of duck breast. They came in a heavy sauce which somehow had transferred to what else was on the plate. I was not impressed. Nor was my sidemate. But the two opposite who had both ordered seafood were excited. They're the reason for my giving a 4 rating. Also, we were seated in the dark narrow rectangular room downstairs which adds to mye not being fully satisfied. Book in advance. We had but obviously not soon enough to get a table on ground level. We were also reminded we only held the table until such a time. They're quick to get rid of people and add new ones.

“Positive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Nice restaurant, friendly staff. Food was good and very well presented.
Tables little bit to close that means feeling of being over-crowded.
Rather expensive
