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!

The food was very tasty and perfectly done. Crispy vegetables and the spring rolls was a good start! The staff was very attentive and helpful!

“A Great Dining Experience”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

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.
