We had made a reservation the day before and we were guided to our table by a nice lady. Drinks came quickly and we were served in app 20 minutes after ordering food.
We had a combo meal for 2 persons and it was more...than enough and very tasteful. A bit of everything you would expect in an oriental restaurant.
The only negative with this place is that the tables are a bit close to each other, in our opinion.More
This was unfortunately a disappointing experience. Waited quite long to be shown to the table even if booked in advance. We ordered sushi for starters but waiter returned after a while stating they didn’t have the ingredients to make it. Then whole family of 4...opted for seafood soup. It took nearly an hour for the soup to be served. Almost all of the mussels did not open, and the soup was very basic. Waiter did not ask for refill of drinks. Main courses were OK. Would not recommend.More
Decent food but we were seated down and ordered our drinks. After we ordered our main dishes, only then did the waiter tell us that the food may take about 30 minutes. It took 52 minutes. I wish they would’ve told us before we were...seated down, we were tired and hungry and waiting for almost an hour wasn’t the best experience. Other than that, the restaurant was fine and food was decent. Portion sizes are generous.More
Perusing Trip Advisor for our first meal in Alesund we came across this restaurant and decided to walk across town so see if it lived up to positive reviews it had received. The Thai dishes we tried were well presented, tasty and generous in portions....A definite thumbs up for a hungry traveler.More
Was a big portion for a family of 4! Bigger than we are used to for people from Oslo!
Tasted great with no hint of msg and great service from Lee Jie, who served us with great attention and personal service!
Tourists visiting Norway realistically ought to be seeking out and eating Norwegian cuisine but after doing so repeatedly during a two-week trip, my wife and I decided that we wanted to switch to Asian food at least for one night. Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we...choose the Oriental Bar over the several others that are located in Alesund and we were glad that we did. The restaurant offers a wide selection of entrees which almost makes selecting just one difficult. On the other hand, the food, if not spectacular, was filling and very, very good. Our waitress, who proudly told us about her former home in southern Thailand, made our dining experience even more special.
The Orient Bar is easy to reach from most major hotels — we walked over from the Radisson Blu just around the corner — and everyone who is hungry should seriously consider it just as we did. It is hard to imagine anybody being sorry if they do.More
