The restaurant is difficult to find- enter Egon Dept store and go to second level and follow sign. It was worth finding! Every dish was excellent - the spring roll appetizer was actually a spring roll plus an egg roll and both were tasty -...More

The only negative thing about this place is that it was hard to locate. It is tucked away at the top floor of the Eger shopping mall in Central Oslo. As soon as we were able to find the stairs leading to the restaurant lobby...More

Very good lunch at reasonable prices, but almost 10 Euros for a small beer is ridiculous, even if brought from Asia on a bottle.... Service so, so.

I was surprised to find such good pho in Oslo. We went there for lunch. The price was reasonable for Oslo. The service was very good. Authentic Viet food worthy of a try!

Had lunch here. We had a little difficulty in finding the restaurant since it is inside at the top of a shopping arcade. I had the Vietnamese soup, Pho, and my companion had a duck salad. Both dishes were very good, full of flavour. Service...More

We walked into this restaurant with no reservation and were graciously seated without a wait - this was a weekday, and fairly early around 7 PM. We weren't expecting much, particularly after a truly disappointing experience at Dinner Restaurant the previous night. However, the quality...More

This is an expensive restaurant with an owner full of himself and nothing is that good! Trying to impose his taste on the clients and pushy. We had the mussels in coconut sauce - uneventful! Then the scallops were pure salt! Then the duck was...More

Pay a visit to Xích Lô (pron. cyklo) for a taste from a little Further East. This is a unique treasure of a Vietnamese restaurant, now occupying new premises on Karl Johans gate 23 B on the first floor of the new department store in Egertorget square. Delicately exotic with light and airy interior and a mouth-watering menu where the food is reasonably priced and completely authentic. Aromatic and spicy without being too hot, the dishes are served as small pieces of art on the plate. Enjoy your trip Further East!
