Genuine thai dishes, do not serve alcohol, friendly staff, average taste. I had fried scampi with mushroom. Served 5 minutes etter ordering. Lack of thai taste, unfortunately. But ok for a quick, cheap bite.

Good food and cheap, compared to other thai restaurants in Oslo. The service is not very good but we can blame it on too many costumers everyday.

Just down the road from Youngstorget you can find this little resturant. Not super easy to find, but well worth looking for. Here you get a decent filling meal, that tastes good, for a very nice price. The resturant can be a bit noisy as...More

I went to the Rice Bowl Thai Cafe a Saturday afternoon. Oslo was pretty crowded just a couple of hours before the football game between Norway and Slovenia. No reason to believe that low quality in the restaurant was caused by lack of guests! Still,...More

Rice Bowl is a small, informal Thai café located by the square Youngstorget. Thai artifacts and bamboo on the walls gives the café an oriental feel to it. Sometimes they also play Thai music. At Rice Bowl you can choose between a selection of Asian dishes, mainly Thai noodle dishes. This is a popular place, so you may have to wait a few minutes to get a table. Once you've ordered, the food usually arrives quickly, and you can get a good portion at a cheap price.
