Nice restaurant with good wine list and beer menu. Big portions, nice flavours and you can pick your own spice level. Full service so you just lean back and relax. Efficient service and drinks come quickly. Like the fact that they offer to take my...drink orders pretty much within a few minutes. I'm one of those that when I'm out I would like to have a drink while I'm studying the menu. They have a sommelier which is not that common in this type of place which is super good with drink suggestions.More

We ordered green curry and chicken with honey and black pepper. Both were really good! Being there with two guys I wasn't worried we wouldn't finish the plates, but it sure was a challenge! The portions are really big. Nice and friendly staff as well!

I had high expectation from this place as one of my friend recommended this place, but I didn't liked the place that much. but saying that worth trying once if you are in Hamar.

I love Chinese food, and this place delivered! As it always does:) the food tastes great, and looks really appealing too. They use just the right amount of seasoning, so you still have the taste of the meat and vegetables. The staff is always smiling...and accommodating :) this is my go to place in town for Chinese food :) the restaurant is cozy with an Asian vibe, but they also have take-out if you prefer eating at home.More

I am not generally a lover of hot and spicy food, but I found this restaurant very helpful in finding a dish that would give me a real taste of Chinese/Thai food without blowing my socks off, the service was excellent and we will definitely...revisit for more delights when we are in HamarMore

I had Chinese tenderloin with sweet and sour sauce. My friends had different dishes,but we all agreed that the food was excellent. Friendly staff, good service. I could have done without the pan pipe music on the stereo, but I forgot about that when the...food was served.More

The place has a nice Asian and warm atmosphere. The service is friendly and the food is great. The dishes with the shrimps are fantastic!

Consistently good service and food! Fresh ingredients always. But the best part, it is one of two restaurants in Hamar where the staff actually can be bothered to remember your face and your favourites on the menu. The customer service alone has gained the loyalty...of my kids, husband and I. This is the best value for money family restaurant in Hamar. It is not pretentious, it is just brilliant any day of the week!More

This place has a laidback atmosphere, cheap prices for Norway and their food is always delicious but not trendy.

We have a vacation house above Hamar and always go to Hot & Spicy for an evening meal since 2 years. This restaurant is a very good and consistent bet for excellent asian cuisine and friendly service. Keep up the good work!!!
