Description: Dinner Restaurant has served food from our Szechuan and Cantonese kitchen in the heart of Oslo since 1989 and are proud to continue offering our guests an exciting journey through Chinese food culture. Traditionally, the Chinese meal consists of many different dishes that are shared between guests at the table in order to create a more social dynamic around the meal time. Our menu is structured in such a way that this style of eating is possible with us. Please ask your waiter if you would like to know more about the dishes and produce used. We would also like to share that all of Dim Sum is made here in the restaurant and the Mango Pudding is still made by the same cook that made it back in 1989.

“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

It isn't easy to find a good Chinese fine dining restaurant these days, but I felt that the food throughout the entire night was of top quality. We explored the special menu, which is one of the three degustation menus offered at the restaurant, and the various dishes that arrived were all impeccably paired with sauces and meticulously prepared.

The service was attentive but I felt that some of the staff members could be a little more courteous. We had some sauce spilled on one of us and instead of apologising, the waitress thought it was timely to do a full investigation into how the sauce was spilled and if it really spilled.

“Fast food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Dinner serves great food but it is expensive and you are definitely not encouraged to sit and chat whilst enjoying your meal! You get the feeling that the waiters are waiting to swoop down and clear the table ready for the next customers! Eat fast or you will definitely be getting the evil eye!

“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Although pricey this was one of the best Chinese meals we have ever eaten with very good service to match the excellent food. As previously mentioned on the TA site, the food is spicy but this is pointed out both in the menu and by the lovely waiting staff. Thoroughly recommend it.

friends from Norway had recommended this restaurant & am so glad we were lucky enough to get in on a whim without a reservation. Excellent service, exquisite food, delightful atmosphere.
