“Nothing To Write Home About”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

I had the King Prawn in Thai Red Curry & my friend had the beef. Mine was OK but my friend just left his dish after one taste. He said he had not tasted anything like it before - and the taste wasn't good. This restaurant looks like another jumping on the 'fusion' bandwagon and using it to serve up meagre portions which look very pretty but do nothing to slake your hunger. The water was served very nicely and it was a hot day 26°C (for Norway) so, a little refrigeration or a couple of ice cubes would have been nice, but no - horrible warm tap water which did nothing to add to the eating experience. It was expensive too. Nothing else to say except there are many better restaurants in Oslo and they are a lot better value for money. I shan't be sending any letters home promoting this place.

“High end cousine”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Great food, served in a beautiful artistic way.
Mind it can get a little expensive if one goes for the best they have to offer, but it is worth it.

We were three adults and one 3 year old, and the place had a great mix of business, family, friends and couples. All in a modern environment.

“Expensive and average service ”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

The food was great quality but expensive for what it was (but that's everywhere in Oslo). Our waiter didn't speak fantastic English and due to inconsistencies between the menus, he ordered the wrong starters for us and then tried to charge us for his mistake. He also didn't tell us the kitchen closed at 11pm so we weren't able to order extra dishes. I understand that language barriers happen, but at such a nice restaurant, you don't expect things like that to happen...
