Description: Pay a visit to Xích Lô (pron. cyklo) for a taste from a little Further East. This is a unique treasure of a Vietnamese restaurant, now occupying new premises on Karl Johans gate 23 B on the first floor of the new department store in Egertorget square. Delicately exotic with light and airy interior and a mouth-watering menu where the food is reasonably priced and completely authentic. Aromatic and spicy without being too hot, the dishes are served as small pieces of art on the plate. Enjoy your trip Further East!

We were spending two nights in Oslo prior to a cruise, and wandered around like typical tourists. We noticed on a third floor balcony a couple of men eating, and thought what a great place to have dinner. An hour later we foudn ourselves in the restaurant, and had a truly delightful dinner, with excellent wines. I would return any time I could. The selection was great, and the meal absolutely well balanced and delightful

Good food, great service! The duck were really good. Super wine. Price ok, but great value.

We'll be back for sure.

Ate here once as it was the nearest Asian place we could find. The food was good but nothing special, have tried better elsewhere.

Xich Lo has moved location a few times over the past few years, but the menu has stayed interesting and is absolutely appetising. Me and my friends always come back here. This is also tha place I take visitors. I always seem to chose the duck (because it is soooo goood!!!), but there are many other tempting courses on the menu. Their taste menu is absolutely reccommended! The only thing that is not intierly positive about this place, is that the latest venue is quite loud. Sound seem to be amplified. But is is still well worth a visit. It is sentral in Oslo, allthough a bit difficult to find (ask in the shops), and absolutely a place to stop by for a lovely and tasty dinner. Not too expenceive either.

Went on trip advisor recommendations. The food was of excellent quality and taste. Lovely flavours, good quality produce. Asian fusion at its best.
