I was here with a bunch of colleagues. We had a delicious 4-5 course menu.
There was shared platters with lots of different food to choose from.

The food was wonderful, very... unique. Though it couldnt satisfy if you are too hungry but the flavours will burst in your mouth! Its more of quality than quantity. Will come back!

This place has kerb appeal and food appeal in abundance. A converted synagogue, it's imposing facade is inviting, yet a little mysterious....inside, the private dining areas off the main restaurant give it an intimate feel. The service is attentive and informative - we let them choose our entire menu as we were a group of mixed nationalities who were after amazing sushi and sashimi and were not disappointed. Even the serving plates were beatifully presented and the food intricately placed on them was as good as it promised to be. Plate after plate of fish and meat were brought to us and devoured. The wine list was impressive. After 5 courses, we adjourned, full and extremely happy. Yes, it's pricey - but that's Norway!

This asian fusion restaurant is located in a fantastic venue of an old synagoge in the quiet part of Frogner with high ceilings, creeking floors and a magnificent atmosphere. The food is excellent, although in the upper price range, and the staff is very service minded. Ask the staff to set together a menu for you and you will love the combinations. Not everyting is on the menu. We had for example a foie gras truffle maki which was a treat. Great drinks and wine menu. The restaurant is always buzzing so book in advance.
