Description: Pay a visit to Xích Lô (pron. cyklo) for a taste from a little Further East. This is a unique treasure of a Vietnamese restaurant, now occupying new premises on Karl Johans gate 23 B on the first floor of the new department store in Egertorget square. Delicately exotic with light and airy interior and a mouth-watering menu where the food is reasonably priced and completely authentic. Aromatic and spicy without being too hot, the dishes are served as small pieces of art on the plate. Enjoy your trip Further East!

“Delicious and affordable lunch in Oslo.”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

There aren't many places that serve good food, in a nice atmosphere, centrally in Oslo, and for affordable price. This is one of the places that does. Delicious Vietnamese food, good portions and just a great lunch deal. We will definitely be coming back here.

I've had dinner here which was amazing. A bit more upper-class setting, with excellent service and food.

“Food was marvellous.....!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Been there 2 days back with my wife, to celebrate a special occasion. The waiters were very kind and helpful. The orders did not take much time to arrive. They served 2 special creations by the chef on the house - a starter and dessert. They also brought us free coffee on the house. They were absolutely fantastic. The starter and main course was just superb. Takes Vietnamese cooking to an completely different level. Will definitely go there again and recommends other to go there again.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Had my defense dinner at Xich Lo, a combination of vietnamese and french cuisine. I would say food is marinated with vietnamese spices but displayed in french style. Very professional service and high quality of food. We were six people from 5 different countries and everybody said only one word "excellent"!
