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!

Situated on the first floor of EGER shopping complex along Karl Johan Gate, this gem was waiting to be discovered. A friend took me there for dinner and I can't stop raving about it after that. My friend, who dined there regularly ordered Vietnamese spring rolls as starters and lobster. The lobster was fresh and delicious. Dessert was also good.
Service was great and the staff very attentive. The atmosphere was pleasant.

Great food, great service. Price just above average for Norway. A tad confusing to find the entrance.

We tried the tasting menu with the exclusive vine menu. It was just perfect. Tasty food with vine that really matched, and great service made this a meal to remember.

Vietnamese restaurant located in the upmarket shopping part of Karl Johans gate. The food was eye catching and great tasting with a wide variety to choose from. Service was friendly and attentive but with too long wait between courses, which I put down to ours being a large table (nine persons).
