1. Slow: Had dinner with friends and was happy to find the resturant rather empty at 6pm. Actually it was rather empty the entire time i was there, arnd 3 tables including mine. We ordered arnd 610pm and food only came around 7pm. After chasing!...And there was only 3 tables with around 7pax!! The best part was one of the tables had already gotten their food and was half way through AND we were the next in line as the 3rd table was after us. When i asked the waiter the status of our order as its almost an hour, he got the cheek to retort “its definitely not an hour” and walk away. I never said it was an hour, i said it was almost an hour as it was 45mins since we ordered!! Such rude attitude and poor command of English. 2. Food: Food was a major disappointment. We ordered the 3 of the recommended items: fried noodles, korean fusion crap and sweet n sour fish with rice. The noodles were not edible. It was salt infused. Even the chicken chunks within was salty beyond hope. One needs to drink water with each tiny bite. The korean fusion was just as bad. All was salty and not edible. When i look around i can understand why the other table plates was half done. They were done eating but did not finish actually. All in all this place is not worth visiting. I tried cos it received quite high reviews. But its bad. Never going back.More

Good value buffet and excellent service. Refills can take a while in busier hours. Nice spring rolls and acceptable sushi, the stir fried vegetables was unfortunately under-cooked, especially the cauliflower.

Kala restaurant is best in Tromso for quality food with good price and environment, for all type of people. It feels like home with good food here.

I took my family to eat @ Kala restaurant the other day. I couldn’t believe how friendly & accommodating they were to my family especially my children. My mother had the tamarind chicken, my kids had the Satay sticks & dumplings. I had the maki...sushi. My family cleaned their plates & the maki sushi is to die for. The food is amazing & so is the staff. My family loved Kala & as long as my family is happy, I’m happy. Two huge thumbs up. 👍🏽👍🏽More

We made a reservation a few hours before arriving and were glad we did. Our table was waiting for us while others, without reservations, were turned away. The food was delicious and served promptly. We enjoyed dumplings as an appetizer. Based on a review, I...ordered the ramen. It was a new experience for me and it was good but next time, I would order an entree. My friend ordered the Sezchuan Beef and said it was wonderful.More

Tastes like microwave ready meal. Friendly staff. Clean. Cheap interior. Looks classy from the outside, but It is not. Pricey.

While visiting Tromso with dear friend of mine, he recommended that I try the Chinese, Japanese restaurant Kala. I took his advice & I have been going to this restaurant ever since. The restaurant itself is colorful, cozy & inviting. The staff & waiters were...very hospitable & kind. The food was very colorful, appetizing & delicious. I had the miso ramen soup & my friend had the sushi. Both dishes were amazing. We couldn’t get enough. A definite must try.More

The place is immaculate & beautiful. The staff & management made me feel very comfortable & at home. Very courteous, kind & professional. The food is just as impressive. You must visit Kala & try their fresh & delicious sushi. All of the dishes my...wife & I had tried was delicious but the sushi is the best. My wife & I are definitely returning.More

The place is vibrant and foods are really delicious. Most importantly, processing time of the order is quiet satisfying compared to many other restaurants in the city.

Extremely professional place. Waiters were always nearby and ready if we needed anything. Food. One word; exquisite. Simply beautiful craftmanship, and its taste lived up to its looks. Definitely coming back here.
