“Nice & Chilled Out Place For Veggie Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

We had a healthy walk out from the city centre to find this place but it was worth it. It's more of a cafe than a restaurant and as we were looking for dinner we wondered if the food would be substantial enough. It was. The food was surprisingly filling and delicious. The Kasbah has a nice, chilled vibe and even has board games that you can play. I would eat here again.

“Lovely hummus!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

Had a nice evening here catching up with some friends. The food was awesome, portions massive. We got some helpful tips from the waiter, so avoided ordering the biggest dishes. Good atmosphere, with a range of board games to choose from, and yatzee at the tables! Probably a nice spot for a pint too.

“Great little bar with super food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

The place is really fun and funky, French staff very friendly and food tasted great. We had meze and it was gorgeous. As I'm veggie, it was great to find a selection of non-meat dishes. selection of beers also good and slightly cheaper than elsewhere in Oslo (relatively speaking)! There's a bus stop almost outside so isn't too difficult to get to from main part of town, would recommend this place.

“Good, cheap, great value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

It's a cosy, little restaurant at Alexander Kiellands plass which serves great falafel and cheap beer. If you're on a budget, the Kasbah is great value!

“So cosy and mediterranean!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

I was here with my partner at the beginning of February 2014, in a raining and cold Norwegian day. We stumbled in The Kasbah by accident, exploring an area which is few steps away from the Grünerløkka trendy area, even if a bit hidden. Once inside this restaurant/bar, we realized was a bit unique place in Oslo. It is not the usual standardized Norwegian coffee place, neither those 'fanatic-healthy-food-pharmacy-like' or super-fashion bars so diffused in Oslo today. First of all there is a soul: is Mediterranean one. The menu offers many suggestions from morocco or Lebanese food and drinks. The two rooms which compose the Kasbah are full of colours, artworks, photos and decos which remind of Mediterranean atmospheres. The music also was very cool. This is a very easy-going and cosy place do hang out with friends for a beer or a cocktail eating falafel, couscous, hummus or mezes. The waitress was very kind and helpful. We chose a hummus/falafel platter + a traditional morocco dish with some extra veggies + two teas. The quality was very good, home-made hummus and the morocco dish were great. To my personal taste just a bit oily. Pita also was good (but not homemade). We spent two very nice hours and about 300 kr. The only problem I can mention is that hot foods like couscous soups were not available, we arrived to the place at the beginning of the evening. I must say that the main feature of the place is no-doubt the atmosphere, very earthy, spontaneous, cosy, not those fashion Norwegian bars soul-less and so similar each other. Many young people/students customers but still quiet and good for an informal romance. I recommend it, for sure.
