I had heard so many positive comments for a couple of years, and my expectations were probably too high. They were not fulfilled. The crew is missing passion for their customers, there were not much friendliness nor service to find. We had booked a table well in advance and preordered their 4 course set menu. Why then give me two... More

The interior of the restaurant was dark and stylish with lots of black upholstery and dark wood. The menu was printed on glossy shiny silver paper and almost everyone inside was wearing black or grey. I felt rather out of place in my bright red lumberjack shirt. The staff, despite a reputation for being rude, where very helpful. And the... More

I was stunned by the amazing Asian food and innovative cocktail menu when visiting Dinner for the first time last week. The staff was polite and very service minded, the pricing better than expected and the atmosphere was relaxed. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to everyone, and it's hereby my new favourite restaurant in Oslo.

This Asian restaurant with Sichuan flavors is still very popular and that's a good reason for that. A good mix of starters and dim sum. Followed by hotpot choices of both seafood and meat. Try the Pang pang beef, lovely. Reservation is recommended.

This is a very popular restaurant, you most of the days need to book a table in advance to avoid waiting for a long time. The staff was very service minded and smiling, the restaurant had a very nice Asian style and feel, and the food was excellent! They have a big menu, in all price ranges, and they have... More

A bit crowded, but understandably so! This place serves a crispy duck that is to die for. The restaurant also specializes in Szeshuan food, and can serve lovely meals in all ranges of spicyness (I am a chili-grad myself, and have really been challenged here!). You can dine here at a decent price, but also go the whole nine yards... More

We were having dinner here as a celebration before seeing a movie. We booked a set menu, and after an hour, I realized that we might be a bit short on time before the movie. The waiter was very apologetic and forthcoming, and suggested that we could come back for the dessert after our movie, and even reserved us a... More

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.
