Description: Dinner Restaurant has served food from our Szechuan and Cantonese kitchen...
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.

Casual Sunday

Great food, started with foie gras and iberico ham in a Chinese cooking style. For main course we had crispy duck which was delicious. The waitress was very friendly and helpful always with a smile. We got extra side dishes for the main course for free. Overall a great night.

Yes It is true. I popped by without a reservation. I am guilty of that. I queued and waited for my turn and asked if there was the slightest chance of a table for one. The Chinese lady at reception did not even acknowledge my existence. Upon my request she just shrouded her shoulders and kept speaking on the telephone... More

The food is really great in this Place. It is the only restaurant in Oslo where they will actually not serve you the hottest and most spicy food unless you really demand it. They try to talk you out of it...And it is on fire. I just loved it. The waitress said I was one of a thousand, that actually... More

We have been regulars at Dinner as well as their sister restaurant Nodee for years, but like Nodee Dinner is slipping and slipping bad. The last few times we´ve been there we have not been satisfied. Level of service and food is rapidly dropping. Our last visit will be our last as we had the worst experience we´ve ever had... More

This place is very popular so you better book table in advance although its big and the have a lot of tables. The service was excellent and they manage to fix an extra table for us since we suddenly became 5 more guests. The food and wine was magnificent. The interior was elegant and nice. I really loved this place.
