The location was a bit strange. We felt a little skeptical to try it first, cos it was on the second floor and the stairs were a bit dark and dirty. BUT once you get inside of the restaurant, the vibes were completely different. It's quite nice inside. The staff were really friendly. We ordered some spicy beef food here... More

What a lovely meal with first class service throughout the time we were there.The outside isn't very welcoming but it is the food that matters which was fantastic. The staff were very attentive without being a nuisance. Very reasonably priced which rounded off a great visit.

It is such a hole in the wall that it is hard to notice this restaurant. Inside, the place is quite nice. The food is very good! The dimsum dishes are delicious and they have most of the usual staple of Chinese food. The place is cozy for a Chinese restaurant. We tried their dimsum dishes several times and they... More

These two menus listed as Vegetarian food. Both my husband and I are vegetarian, and the two menus are perfect for us. The Buddha pot contains tofu and some vegetables with Sichuan sauce. It was not that spicy. While the Aubergin pot is even more amazing with Shitake and a black sauce. We consider these meals are among the best... More

Last night I and four friends dropped into to the Oriental in Oslo. We received fantastic prompt service and ate a wonderful, genuine ChInese meal which did not break the bank! We can recomend it highly.

Dropped in for a light dinner. Had the "Sa Cha Sam Sin". It was served sizzling. A beautiful dish, packed with flavour. The crab was the star of the dish. Will definitely come back. One happy customer.

The unknown relative to the far more popular Dinner restaurant you find good and schezuan food also here. Even though the presentation could have been better. The service could have been better as well.

Oriental is unpretentious, but good. It has been around for decades, but has´t changed much. A nice place for a tasty and large meal, not perhaps very stylish, but not the opposite either. Very centrally located, but you have to look for it carefully, as it is on the first floor, not the ground floor.

The Chinese food here is delicious, but the presentation is very "homestyle" - basically good grub slapped half-assedly on a plate. The menu is authentic, as opposed to the prevailing majority of "Chinese restaurants" in Oslo that cater specifically to the Norwegian palate. My family and I arrived on a slow weekday, so we were among the first to arrive.... More
