It was quiet last night and this Mahayana was just down the street. We had shrimp tempura and a chicken/shrimp vegetable dish’s freshly prepared and delicious. Service was on point. Great choice.

This was quite possibly the worst Asian dining experience I’ve had in Oslo. We had Dim sum and a beef salad. The beef salad was undercooked and soggy, while the Dim sum was hard and tasteless. Service was totally uninterested, so we won’t go back....More
