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.

One of the better Asian restaurants in the area. Nice interior and attentive staff. Price vice, all eating on restaurants in Norway is expensive! But it's quite good value to cost considering the location.

The food is very good and makes Dinner a recommended place to visit for Chinese food.

Value for money is medium.

It is a shame that the service is poor, and the tables are placed very close to each other. In addition, some of the tables have a very poor placement/location, e.g. in walkway next to kitchen.

Their reputation as the best Chinese restaurant in Oslo is well deserved. My number one recommendation would be to order the Peking Duck 5-course menu if you are close to a multiple of 4. You don't get it better in Norway and their homemade Hoisin sauce is just awesome.
It wasn't until my fifth visit I tried something else. The last time we decided on sharing all the Dim Sum options, where a Crispy Duck starter is one of them. All of these were excellent, but the one that really stood out (apart from the Crispy Duck) was the Wagyu Beef Dumplings (Gau Ji). Yum!

Unattentive and unpleasant waitress. Luckilly, the food was great. Can really recommend eating here. Just as long as you can live with a very low service level.

This place is hopping all the time.It's a fast and furious pace all around and lost of staff hustling an bustling. Food and drinks are beautifully prepared - stunningly styled - and remarkable to behold. Unfortunately though, not particularly delicious. Drinks too sweet, all foods too salty and oddly bland. Wagyu beef dumplings were roughly 15 US dollars for three tiny dumplings that had no spice at all. No garlic- nothing - just tasted like unseasoned beef in dough. Shrimp starter was better. The lamb main dish was (unexpectedly) batter fried and oily with super salty hoisin-like sauce. Pak choi was good. All in all - meh in a beautiful way.
