It is in an old building's second floor so you can miss the entrance easily. The setting is quite old especially the toilet place was narrow and use a hook instead of a lock. The dimsum selection was abundant, you know it won't be too bad because the staff speaks cantonese with each other. I only tried three of them... More

The Dim Sum menu is extensive for Norwegian standards, but the taste is certainly not authentic. The dough of the hak kou and shin juk should be thinner. But of course we are not in a China town here, so I will not judge to harshly. Service is good, but prices are rather high for a lunch, about 300 NOK... More

Specializes in dim sum. I ordered more than I could eat. Was disappointed With a couple of Choices, but the rest were delicious. Moderately priced. Popular Place. Recently opened a branch near city hall. Worth a visit. Unpretentious. Not the best ambience, but People come here for the dim sum, not the atmosphere.

This is the one and only restaurant I visit when I want Dim Sum in Oslo. Every dish is delicious and it is really cheap. The only minus is the ambiance which could be better, but this means nothing when the food is so great. Go there!!

My favorite Chinese in Oslo is in Torggata. Taste of China has been around for years, still many havent discovered this jewel! I normally only have Dim Sum (they have a lot of dishes, all very good, but the Dim Sums are in my opinion the best Oslo has to offer). Lots of choices, and with a home made chilli... More

We went there for an early business dinner. The dumplings are astounding. The main dishes are staple Chinese food; we had chicken, pork and shrimp, all very good,

Our favorite dish here is the chicken feet and the porridge. Pair the porridge with the fried bread and it takes us back to asia. The rib soup is also very good and they have wide selection of dim sum to fit any taste.
