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.

“Best asian restaurant in town”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Fancy restaurant recomended by friends living in Oslo who know where it is good to go. You must reserve your table in advance. Just next to the National theater, its location is in the centre of the town. Elegant restaurant where the dishes served in style become a piece of art. Lobster & co... You can choose if you want your foood spicy, hot, medium or not spicy. High class, it is worth the "norvegian" price!

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Went to the restaurant by recomendation of a friend. From outside look okay and not very special. Inside is quite nice and fancy. Should wear more casual but not short. We had a great meal. Delicious lobster. The price is typical norwegian pricing, more expensive than western part of Europe. But if compare to other restaurant we go in Oslo, i think is more than worth the money we paid. If you like fine dining, it is worth a visit here. Excellent asian fusion meals. It is Szechuan Cuisine so will bit quite spicy for some people. Need to remind the waitress if you dont eat spicy food.

“A bit too efficient”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Visited this place for many times over 20 years, and it is still the best chinese in Oslo. However, new asian restaurants like CosmoThai and Mr. Bay nearby is recommended for better service.
Hard to get a smile from the waitors, but very efficient and professional. Missing charm, and more interested in turnover than guests is the feeling. Dim Sum great, yet expensive, but the lobster soup was more like tomato soup. Disapointing. Dark and tables too close together.
Still OK but no more. Reservation a must.
