An amazing restaurant just on the high street in Oslo city centre. Restaurants with this location may easily be recognised as tourist traps, but this one is among the best in Oslo. Price level is reasonable for the type of restaurant. Works well for both lunch and dinner. Stylish place. We went for the lunch set menu which was just... More

The food is great. I've eaten here multiple times over the last few years and I have never had any complaints about the food. But be aware - when they say spicy, they mean spicy. So dion't overestimate how spicy food you can handle. The only thing I have to point a finger to, is that the staff is a... More

The ambient is great, music not so loud and lights down. The food was excellent, all of them. The dim sum very yummy, and the marinated lamb was so great and special. I have not seen lamb on Oriental food before. They have a very big menu and I am pretty sure that everything is so great. Great night !!!

First of all, just to be clear: the food was good - 4/5. But the service was not great. And there are some minor hick-ups that I really do not appreciate. We reserved a table for four, weeks in advance. When we arrived we received a round table for 9 people. It didn't make any sense. And it was hard... More

We had the chefs menu. The duck was amazing but all the dishes were great. Probably if you order different food it will be great too! Friendly staff. Loved to be all the way in the back of the restaurant.

Quite difficult to make a reservation, very busy restaurant. The Crispy Duck is marvellous, absolutely value for money even if it is quite expensive.

Had lunch here on my own this Friday. No reservation needed to get a table, at least not for lunch. Had the vegetarian dish. Tasted very nice, came with a large bowl of rice on the side. A lot of value for money. Service excellent. I'll be back.

The plan was dinner out in Oslo to impress some foreign colleagues, and Dinner seemed to be the best place to do this. Noise, sound and music are at a level that conversation can go as normal without any particular interference. Dinner delivering a service and quality that few restaurants in the same price range can compete with, although it... 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.
