We chanced upon this joint whilst deciding where to eat. Having missed Asian food for a whole week it did not take us long to decide. We ordered a seafood fried rice and Tom yum kung noodles. The fried rice was tasty and done well...but the noodles was too sour . The portion was big and price reasonable considering how expensive food is in Oslo. Service was unobtrusive and fast. The food wasn't outstanding but it was decent Thai food.More

Great little Thai restaurant! Prices aren’t to high and you actually get a decent portion. Food tasted lovely so was the service! The only downside if you can call it that way, was no alcohol available, but hey, they have alcohol free carlsberg which is...just as refreshing! Thumbs up, would recommend 👌More

This is an authentic Thai food! This is a place to go when you want to learn some Asian culture. People below are complaining about dishes not coming in a proper order, but this is how things are in Thailand, that’s a part of the...culture. The food choice is enormous, portions are so large, I was full halfway through my main course, omitting the starter. Sweet lovers should try desserts because it’s just heaven! And the price is really encouraging, that’s probably cheapest you can get at such quality. But don’t expect alcohol. The prices are low, because in Norway the alcohol license is very expensive, so if you want to eat and drink at the same time, expect high prices!More

We were 4, ordered appetizer and main meal. We got our main dishes first and then after we got an appetizer. Obviously we didn't need appetizer at this point already and we didn't eat it but the waiter forced us to pay for it after...all with a lot of arguing, explaining that we have to say it before that we want it before main dish... Do I also have to ask for the dessert to come after the meal not before??? Forretter/Appetizer is as the name suggest "before dish" which should be served normally before while waiting for main dish (Hovedretter), that is normal and understood at all the restaurants I have been till now. Also service is very slow and rude. At least main food we ordered was OK for the time and place (unfinished interior). Thumbs up for kitchen, very big thumbs down for service and organization. We will never go there again and we will certainly advise our friends to not go there.More

I am been for many years to eat at rice bowl and now i am went back to this new place in kirkegata but i was very disappointed, before i got the plate with mushrooms not cooked enough and later after got a new plate...because the waitress was so nice to replace the dish. But when i got the dish back was without ingredients. The place it’s cozy but not so good as before, i hope to get back one day and change my idea. Its still cozy restaurant but the food was not really good this time. Pity because before was one of the best place in Oslo for eat thai mat.More

Used to be my favorite Thai restaurant in Oslo, but not anymore. The signature dishes changed from large portions into small and with less ingredients. Service is nice, but the kitchen has to improve to bring back the old standard what kept the people waiting...in the cue.More

I understood that the restaurant moved into a new location ... just to make sure we are talking about the same restaurant. Service is ok, superfast, maybe too fast. So food is not at all original thai, its an Ok- better fast food place. We...will not come back sorryMore

Worst food experience in 2019. The tom yam was way too sour. When I said it to the waiter she got angry and told me I had bad taste. Never in my life have I been treated like this at a restaurant.

We visited the restaurant after 3 pm and ordered two dishes. The food was tasty, and its aroma reminds us of our Thai food in Singapore. The pricing is comparable to other other Asian Restaurant. The decoration was something special as it is mainly from...bamboo. The service by the waitress was polite.More

This place is compact, reasonably priced (by Norway standards) and serves fairly decent fare. Do not expect very authentic curries but the food will not disappoint. Think it is run by a Thai family. Green chicken curry with jasmine rice was a good portion size...and adequate for one person.More

I have never heard about a restaurant in Norway that alows you to bring your own wine, so i think its against the law.
