Very atmospheric place in the city center of Oslo. It's bigger than it seems and behind every corner is is a different view buzzing with people, even the basement! I would value a bit more privacy and quiet, but it's also original I guess. The food is tasty, though there are differences -- the crispy duck is very good, the... More

My daughter and I went for lunch a busy Saturday before Christmas. We hadn't booked in advance, but still a table for two was available. We did, however, not get the best table in the basement. Here, the interior is a bit dark in style, but background music is relaxing although not very Chinese. We ordered a shared crispy duck... More

Beautiful restaurant, welcoming people and delicious flavors! We had two appetizers with spring rolls and other specialties. The main course was the duck and lobster, chicken and prawns. Everything in hot chili sauce. Nice ice cream! Definitely recommended if you are in Oslo!

Not very easy to find the restaurant front is very dark. Once enter this restaurant , this place was backed at 6pm. 1,5 hour waiting time. So decide to take away. I orders kam kon pot, it was OK. Only they forgot the chopsticks. The price is average here in Norway standard. Reservation is must.

This must be one of Oslo's best oriental restaurants, excellent food, very fine wine and attentive staff giving advice on the dishes, how hot they are and what wine that pairs with the dish. My wife's favorite in Oslo. Highly recommended. They may have high chairs for children, but this is not the place to go with kids, especially if... More

Out dining with some colleagues. Have been here a couple of times before. Great food. Great service. Next time I take my wife out for dinner, we will go here. Might even bring the "kids" (13 and 15 years old), since they have tasted crispy duck before and liked it.

We were absolutely delighted: The Food at Dinner was superb, the service excellent - and the Three meal course we ordered contained more Food than we could manage to eat. This is the best Chinese restaurant I have visited - ever.

This is high end Chinese cuisine. The flavors are subtle and the presentation is very Japanese in feeling. I had the lunch box at noon which was a delightful surprise. It included a variety of tastings - fish - duck - noodles - etc. Each was cooked to perfection and were subtly flavored. The room is modern continental in decor.... More

We were two couples eating Picking duck, needs too be ordered in advance. Excellent food and service. The place is always packed, so you need too book a table. We'll worth a visit.

Thank Espen S

Dinner Restaurant has served food from our Szechuan and Cantonese kitchen in the heart of Oslo since 1989 and are proud to continue offering our guests an exciting journey through Chinese food culture. Traditionally, the Chinese meal consists of many different dishes that are shared between guests at the table in order to create a more social dynamic around the meal time. Our menu is structured in such a way that this style of eating is possible with us. Please ask your waiter if you would like to know more about the dishes and produce used. We would also like to share that all of Dim Sum is made here in the restaurant and the Mango Pudding is still made by the same cook that made it back in 1989.
