We came across this restaurant in an on line search of popular, moderately priced restaurants in Oslo and were not disappointed. We ordered lamb and chicken curry and were really impressed with the freshness and flavor of our dishes. Servings were ample and came on...large plates that held a sample of smaller side dishes that were also delicious. The atmosphere inside was very friendly and the service was great. If you are a fan of Indian and Sri Lankan food and on the prowl for a great meal at a very reasonable price in Oslo (not always easy to find here), this place is definitely worth seeking out.More

On a long weekend visit to Oslo, we were recommended a walk up the Akerselva River that runs through the town and to check out the Palmyra Restaurant and Cafe at Norbygata 15A, 0187 Oslo, which is in the heart of a multicultural area, just...to the North and East of the city centre. We (two) shared the Vadai starter, which came with a delicious coconut chutney. I ordered the Lamb Curry, which was hot and spicy, and in traditional South Indian style, was served on a large metal plate with a rich array of chutneys and small side dishes. My partner had the Masala Dosa, which did not disappoint. We shared a Parotta and had a bottle of Cobra beer each, which was served cold on the premises. We had a lovely chat to the staff, who spoke really great English. The atmosphere in the restaurant and streets was vibrant, warm and friendly. Highly recommended. And the value, given Oslo prices (!) was excellent.More

Food is always good and consistent, so that counts a lot! I ordered 2 dishes today, which included 1 papadam each, and I ordered 4 extra papadams for the whole family. Disappointed to see that they charged me for 4 extra papadams, and I got...2,5!!! I was supposed to get 6! Super annoying. Don’t get it, and didn’t discover it until well on my way home. Now I am extra annoyed that they asked me to pay cash, because they were too busy to let me tap my card. 🧐Also gotten yoghurt on a vegan dish once. But I truly love this food, so I might get over the missing papadams and getting charged extra for actually nothing eventually.More

Good food at reasonable prices ( at least by Norwegian standards :D) . I think its the only place where you can get South Indian food in Oslo. Had vada (tasted better than India) , veg meal and dosa . All were good.

My wife and I had lunch. We were both pleased with the food and the service. The restaurant looks better than in TripAdvisor's pictures. We recommend this place for their curry and vegetarian food. Also, it has very reasonable prices.

This was a really great find. The menu isn’t huge, but the options they have are great. Some very tasty vegan options here and for Oslo, not too pricey. Staff were really nice too.

Left waiting to order, long wait, items on menu not available and only two waiters on the floor struggling to keep pace. Take away food maybe OK but very disappointed to eat there. Won’t be going back anytime soon.

Had dinner with 3 friends here. The restaurant serves mostly set menus and my friends opted the vegetarian variant while I had the chicken option. Food tasted delicious and was nicely spiced (a bit more than common in Oslo but we were happy with that)....Some dinner options (biriyani) unfortunately turned out to be only available in the weekend. Lassi was yummy but papadums a bit soft. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Price: lowest in Oslo.More

Just order the thali (chicken or mutton ) it’s absolutely delicious. Like home cooked food. The masala dosa was delicious too. It’s a small restaurant, with a personal touch. It’s easily one of the best Indian food we’ve had outside India.

We came here for an evening meal as we were staying nearby and so glad we did- it was the best meal we had on our trip. Nice to have a change of food too! We had the veggie/vegan curries which was a range of...curries and dishes to try with rice and poppadom. All super tasty! Portion size was great and amazing value for Oslo/Norway in general. If I come back to Oslo I would definitely return :)More
