after reading rave reviews. I Got a take away only two veggie options and spring rolls and spinach dumplings. both were awful bland, taste less soggy. on another note the staff were friendly and chatted to us despite us only getting two item takeaway but this is no way made up for the terrible food.

The place is now called 'new taste of china'. As if the original name was not bad enough. Went here for a quick dinner with two mates. The restaurant seems to be pretty popular, but first impressions are not great. Why do so many Chinese restaurants insist on giving no thought to presentation, ambience, service and in general creating a... More

There are not many Dim Sum restaurants in Norway. When travelling we also try to find a Chinese restaurant as we love Chinese food - especially Dim Sum. We have tried three restaurants in Oslo where they serve Dim Sum and may conclude that The Taste of China has excellent Dim Sum. We will come back :)

I've been there twice since the first time in December and each time I was so pleased with the food. For a reasonably priced restaurant in Oslo which is somewhat unusual, you can eat very Chinese, very well cooked food. I particularly liked the shumai and the steamed bun dumplings. Everyone in our group was happy to be there. They... More

The Taste of China has excellent dim sum! It's is consistently yum yum!!! There is plenty of variety to choose from and the service is friendly and efficient... so all in all it's a great place for "Yum Cha". Highly recommend it!

We were two people who ate lunch here, and we shared a variety of Dim Sum dishes. The service was excellent and the food was very good. A nice variety in flavours in the different Dim Sum dishes, and the portions were quite generous. A nice way of sharing a meal, we both got to taste everything.

The Dim Sum experience were great. varied and very good food. We were a huge crowd celebrating my daughters 30th birthday. Service was expedient and charming in spite of number of guests changing throughout the meal and the evening. Prices are to Norwegian standards low. All in all a very good experience.

often, when we are in Oslo City, we have dinner here. Always a selection of dim sum courses, 6 is enough for the two of us. With Chinese beer. Lots of taste, hot and spicy. The last time, at the table right behind us, three ladies had a main course, Peking Duck, it looked delicious too.

Celebrated my birthday with my family and friends. We were 17 people total, got great food and good service as always. This is one of my favourite "every day" restaurants in Oslo. The absolute best dim sum, and the Prices are nice. I highly recomend it for lunch AS well as dinner.
