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.

“Nice place but a bit too pricy”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

This is a nice and cozy place to eat. The food and the service were very good. The waiters were really attentive to your needs.

Nevertheless, I would say that they have tried to fit too many tables in a small place though. And it is a pricy restaurant, but this is expected when you go to a Michelin starred restaurant.

The general experience was very satisfying and I would recommend this place to others.

We were 9 friends.
The service went from good to ok during the stay.
One of us, didn't get the chance to order something to drink, before the waiter went away.
When we order something to drink during the meal, it took almost 15 minutes before it came.
And the place is a little to pricey.
The food however, was very good, except for burnt dessert (chocolate cake)
However: The service need to get a lot better.

This was a real WOW experience!
Very expeditious operation that also was professional and pleasant.
A small minus that I could peek into the kitchen where I was sitting and observing a cook who ate nut and licked the fingers ... but hand hygiene is probably just as well as general impressions and probably no danger to the guests. but it did not look so good.
Will certainly return to this wonderful food and restaurant.

“Not great value”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

For the price you pay Dinner is, even by norwegian standards, an expensive restaurant. There are way better asian food in Oslo for less money, there are generally way better food of any cuisine available for this price. However, the food and service are always great.
