Description: Rice Bowl is a small, informal Thai café located by the square Youngstorget. Thai artifacts and bamboo on the walls gives the café an oriental feel to it. Sometimes they also play Thai music. At Rice Bowl you can choose between a selection of Asian dishes, mainly Thai noodle dishes. This is a popular place, so you may have to wait a few minutes to get a table. Once you've ordered, the food usually arrives quickly, and you can get a good portion at a cheap price.

“Nice Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Took a little finding from the train station but only about 5 mins walk. Busy when we arrived not long after 6pm so had to wait for table as it's not very big. Wasn't a problem, but the staff just ignore you til a table is free. Once we got a table the service was fine and friendly. They don't have a licence so water and soft drinks only, although at Oslo beer prices that just makes it cheaper. Food arrived promptly and was good but maybe on the bland side. This is more of a cafe than a restaurant but worth a visit and reasonable for Oslo price wise.

“Good_Prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Good prices for Oslo near the center of the city. More of a younger restaurant. Service was below average but the food was tasty. Recommended for a quite dinner, not a really a place to spend an evening for a nice meal, but good for a quick feed.

“Really good food at cheap prices (on the Oslo scale).”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Friendly service and good food, and all that way below the usual price level in Oslo. Located centrally, close to the main train station (Oslo S) this is a great tip to get a good valued meal. Mind that they don't sell alcohol.

“Good food, good service and good price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I said it all in the title: tasty food, good portions, price is totally okay considering Oslo standards and location is central. I go there often and have no intention to stop!

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Bland, tasteless and boring. Service? What service! Heard through the medie that this was the place to be, walked by on several occasions, decent number of people hanging out, but what a dissapointment.
