“Amazing small dishes!”
Review of Izakaya

Izakaya
Ranked #34 of 1,600 Restaurants in Oslo
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 14, 2014

This is without a doubt the perfect place to go with friends and share dishes over Sake and beer!
The ice tea is excellent and really cheap!

The chicken dish was amazing, the pancake excellent, kimuchi delicious!

I recommend going for one of each and just taste your way through the menu.

It can get quite loud in here, with it being a basement restaurant.

The service - Impeccable!

Friendly,humble staff.Sat down at table but did not get any menu,had to get it at bar.At this bar with possibility to order food, you order,get menu and pay at bar.There is service at table but it is better to go direct to bar.I tried "Gyoza" dumplings,"Chijimi
" korean pancake, "Tsukune"
chickenmeatballs on spear "Soba-salat" sallad with green noodles
they all had good taste especially panckake and chicken spear.New tastes and combinations I had not tried before a food adventure, I like that:) Size of dishes are small.Izakaya is in a celler and most seats are at benches you probably will share table with strangers and there is no backrest at most seats.It is a cozy,relaxed atmosphere with japanese art on walls especially liked picture with karate man fighting with bull(fair fight not like unfair spanish bullfighting).Drank cold beer to food 0,5 liter 63nok.Best:friendly,humble attitude staff Worst:no backrest on most seats.

This small basement bar is a rare find in Oslo. Awesome place with super Japaneese small dishes, beer and sake. Its atmosphere, staff and clientel makes it the perfect place to hang out on cold Autumn nights.
