We are in the lucky situation that we can visit this restaurant on a fairly regular basis (sometimes, once a week). Up to now, we have never being disappointed with the food and service. Even the price is reasonable for Norway. We have also visited vietnamese restaurant abroad (outside Vietnam) and still prefer Bambus. Freshness and delicate taste are their strength. All personal are from Vietnam, and the cook will sometimes show up and explain or check if you like the food. They are very kind, discreet but helpful and do their best speaking norwegian and english. Little detail, the restrooms are the cleanest ever seen in a restaurant. We highly recommend the fresh spring rolls as a starter, for the main course the vietnamese pancake is a light alternative with a lot of fresh ingredients. No22 is a winner. The fish soups and the fried rice are fine as well. If you know anything about asiatic restaurant in Norway, it does not get better (closed on Mondays). Bon Appétit!

I have eaten here a couple of times in the last month. Both times I have been impressed with the food but a little disappointed by the attentiveness of the staff - in what was both times a very quiet restaurant. That being said, the food more than made up for it. Exquisite flavours in sizeable portions all washed down with a traditional Vietnamese Saigon beer - life can't get much better.

All in all I'm already looking forward to my next trip to Bergen.

The vegetarian dishes are great, especially the curry. The service is also great! Will definitely come again! :)

This was average price, good food. I had hoped to discover some Vietnamese specialities but it seemed much like chinese food to me. Large portions so be wary about ordering starters! Kitchen closes round about 9pm.

Have been here in previous years and even taken guests here. Was here with a friend, ordered the seafood mix on a hot iron platter and the tofu with vegetables stirfry. The former had a little flavor, but not much; there were a few small leaves of thai basil in the dish, but otherwise this could have passed as a typical Bergen Chinese dish with an undistinguished brown sauce. The tofu dish was bland to put it mildly (all we could taste was the oil). Very little in the choice of dishes sounds like authentic Vietnamese food, and if our experience is generalizable, they are using hardly any authentic spices. I love the decor and Vietnamese music here, and the creative menus, but if you know anything about Vietnamese food you will be as disappointed as we were.
