“Try out the daily menu”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Been there many times and have tried a few of their dishes from the daily menu "Dagensmeny", never been let down. Easily better than many top restaurants in Oslo. Nice traditional atmosphere. The price for the "Dagensmeny" is reasonable for the Oslo standards. Highly recommended!

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

Been here some times over the years, always happy with the friendly service and reasonable prices. Placed right next to Majorstuen and Colosseum Cinema.

A nice place for a beer.

“Good food, reasonably priced with great service!”
Reviewed 15 January 2013 via mobile

Upon entering the restaurant it felt like a warm and cozy living room. Lots of wood, nicely decorated. The waitress was very welcoming and hospitable. I had the Chicken Wok (138 NOK) which was a full plate with warm and very tasty food. Will definitely come back here!

“Wonderful food and world class service in hideous localities!”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Most importantly: Prices are actually reasonable - in Oslo's West End! Imagine that! Moreover, the food is really good and the staff even better. Were it not for the "interesting", unbelievably outdated, and flat out ugly interiors of the place, every table would be booked year round. But, its sort of fun the way it is, and kind of a secret...

The today's specials is what to aim for! Particularly on Thursdays, when they do the Norwegian working class' special: "Flesk og duppe". Also the Club Sandwich (which is not even close to the classic - only much better!) is worth trying. Pastas are a little dull and overcooked but other mains are delicious! The seafood, I had halibut, was prepared like in a top notch restaurant.

Did not try desserts so not sure if they are at the same level as the rest of the menu.

This is more of an autumn/winter kinda place but the food was as good this July as it was in December. In the summer season, there is some halfhearted seating arrangement outside.

Wine list is ok. Many seem to drink beer.

No WiFi. Hope this improves. Washrooms are awful and needs upgrading.

If in Oslo on a budget and want to have a more-than-decent meal at a reasonable price; This is highly recommended. Food and service is very very good.
